Mental Health Support in The North East of England
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 you don’t know where to turn to next or what to expect when you get there.
You might be stressed at work, struggling with your self-esteem or wondering if this is all there is. 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 thinking your child may need some help. You may be thinking that your issue is trivial, however if it is affecting the quality of your life it’s not trivial.
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 ONE WEEK of booking.
