NEECS aims to protect the confidentiality of clients.  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.

Before applying to NEECS please check your availability to attend counselling appointments matches NEECS ability to provide them.  

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 when we can

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)  These evening sessions are very 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.
