The Short Term Service is currently CLOSED We are not open at weekends or evenings other than Thursday.
When applying for this service please check the list is Open and that when you wish to attend matches with when NEECS offers it's appointments. Our Home Page states when our current sessions are.
This service offers an initial assessment appointment followed by a further six counselling sessions, on the same day and time each week. We are unable to say how long you will have to wait for an appointment, but we will offer an appointment as soon as it is possible to do so, within your stated availability to attend.
At your initial Assessment appointment you will be given the opportunity to:
- Talk about what has brought you to counselling;
- Hear about what counselling could offer you;
- Decide, together with your counsellor, that counselling is suitable for you
