NECS North East Counselling Services Newcastle-upon-Tyne Gateshead

What's going on for you right now?

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 local support but don’t know where to turn next or exactly what to expect.

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. NECS have over 50 counsellors, so we can match you with the most appropriate counsellor. The work we do is confidential – and there is no record of your attendance given to anyone without your permission. We conduct a consultation first of all and use the information you give to ensure you get the right counsellor.

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 you booking to see us. Drop us an email call the office on 0191 466 1314 or use the Contact Form at the foot of this page.

At any point in our lives we face difficulties and can struggle to cope with life’s pressures.

If things persist, you may lose self-confidence or feel depressed or feel low, perhaps you may need help. It’s a fact that 1 in 4 of us will experience some kind of mental health problem in our lives – so it’s not uncommon to have these feelings. You may be struggling with a family bereavement, a family issue or just simply feeling low or not yourself.


We provide an environment where children and young people can feel safe and supported

If you are a school leader, headmaster, or governing body of a school you will know of the importance of ensuring pupils’ wellbeing, developing character and resilience and supporting pupils with problems.


Caring for someone can sometimes be completely overwhelming.  The high demands on you and your time can result in stress and anxiety, which can, in turn, affect your ability to cope with everyday tasks and your confidence and self-esteem can be worn down.

Giving all your time and attention to someone else can also leave you feeling socially isolated with no time to consider what your own needs are, let alone how to meet them.

What should I do next?

Counselling can help people with a wide variety of issues – including bereavement, depression, anxiety, low mood, stress, phobias, addictions, compulsions and bullying. If you feel that you have no one to talk to about what is happening for you counselling can really help. We all have thoughts which we can be reluctant to reveal or share – counselling gives you an opportunity to discuss them in a safe and non-judgmental environment.
