Self Referral Form
NEECS aims to always protect the confidentiality of clients.
By providing NEECS with the requested details on our referral form you are confirming you agree to NEECS using these details to provide you with the service you have requested. NEECS will only use your details for this purpose alone. All NEECS staff fully abide by NEECS Confidentiality Requirements. The information you give us is only ever stored in our office (on our computer and within a client book held securely in a locked cupboard). Information about your sessions will not be passed on to anyone else unless it is with your permission. Only in the event of you or someone else being at risk may confidentiality be broken. Even in such circumstances, your counsellor would aim to discuss and agree with you any action which may be necessary. NEECS policy on confidentiality includes following Police Scotland Child Protection Guidelines.
We are unable to advise how long you will have to wait for an initial appointment with us however please be assured we will offer you an appointment as soon as we are in a position to do so.
Before applying please check your availability to attend counselling matches with NEECS' ability to provide an appointment.
Currently NEECS offers 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) These evening sessions are heavily over subscribed and incur the longest wait for an appointment with NEECS.
Once you have attended an initial assessment your following counselling appointments will be at the same time and on the same day each week, with each session lasting up to an hour.
Should you require counselling outside of the above times click on the Directory Link to your left or email us to provide a longer list of possible helpful sources via the get in touch link.
