Details of what the service does or provides.

Who are you?
You may be struggling with something which is causing turmoil in your life, or you may have a niggling sense of things being not quite the way you want them to be. You may be thinking about getting some support but don’t know where to turn next what to expect.

What’s going on for you?
You might be stressed at work, struggling with your self-esteem or wondering if this is all there is to life. You may have lost someone dear to you or have a broken relationship which has rocked your world. You may be wondering if you are “normal” – whatever that is, or you may want to explore your relationship, sexuality or family life. You could be looking at your child and thinking that they need some help. You may be thinking that your issue is trivial – if it is affecting your life it’s not trivial.

How can we help you?
Our philosophy is to get you the right help as quickly as possible and to make it as affordable as possible. We know that waiting for months to see a therapist can make the situation worse, so we aim to get you in for your first appointment within 2 weeks of booking. The work we do is confidential – and there is no record of your attendance given to anyone without your permission (except if we feel that you are at risk of harm). NECS have over 50 counsellors on our books, so we can match you with the most appropriate counsellor for you. We conduct a consultation first of all – you can book this online at a cost of £25. We use the information you give at consultation to ensure you get the right counsellor. We can support anyone from 4 to 104 and we can work with couples or individuals. We can also provide FREE counselling to children and young people 9 -25 in Gateshead, Carers in Gateshead and War Veterans in Gateshead.
