The Short Term Service is currently closed.
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. The more flexible you can be, the sooner we would hope to be able to offer you an appointment. Before applying for a service, please check the appointment times that we are able to offer (on the home page)
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
Having checked you can attend when we are available, complete the self-referral form to the right. By providing NEECS with the requested details we consider this as confirmation you agree to us using them to provide you with the service you have requested. NEECS will only ever use your details for this purpose. All NEECS staff comply with NEECS' Privacy/Confidentiality Requirements.
