Wait List open. Please be aware we are unable to say how long you will have to wait but it is likely to be at least 10 weeks and may well be longer.
Before applying to join the waiting list please check your availability to attend counselling appointments matches NEECS ability to provide them. Currently NEECS can only offer counselling on Mondays (9am to last appointment 12.45pm), Tuesdays (9am to last appointment 4.30pm) Wednesdays (9am to last appointment 12.45pm), and Thursdays (2.45pm - last appointment 6.45 pm) The Thursday evening sessions are very heavily over subscribed and incur the longest wait for an appointment with NEECS.
The Short Term Service offers an initial assessment appointment followed by six counselling sessions, which will be on the same day at the same time each week, with each session lasting up to an hour.
At your initial appointment you will be given the opportunity to:
* talk about what has brought you to counselling
* to hear about what counselling could offer you
* to decide together with your counsellor that this service is suitable for you
The more flexible you can be within our ability to provide sessions, the sooner we hope to find you a counselling appointment.
If you require counselling beyond the above times please refer to the Directory to your left or email us via the get in touch link for a more extensive list of resources or consult www.edinburghcounsellingagencies.co.uk website
