Helping you to live your life
NECS understand that poor mental health can affect anyone. It has a different impact on everyone. Some people will feel angry, some anxious and some people find their sleep is affected.
The thoughts start in your head can lead to a physical reaction. That's why panic attacks are so frightening. The thoughts have become a physical effect which makes people feel shaky and faint.
NECS also know that counselling isn't for everyone, which is why we've put together some useful information which might help you to understand what is happening for you. With knowledge comes the opportunity to change if you feel you want to.
We really hope that you find them useful, but please get in touch if you think something is missing from our website.
What if I do need counselling?
Counselling is for anyone who feels that they don't know where to turn next. Maybe you have had lots of negative thoughts, or you are feeling really anxious. Or you really don't like yourself right now and you think you've let everyone down.
Counselling can really help you to separate your muddled feelings and start to see the path you need to be on.
Lots of people think that counselling isn't for them, and indeed, counselling isn't right for everyone. That's why our first appointment is an assessment which helps us to understand you and for you to see if counselling can work for you.
We can provide counselling for adults, couples and children aged 4+
How does counselling work at NECS?
- You contact us to book your first appointment, which we’ll aim to schedule in within a week.
- During your first appointment, we’ll get to know you and understand the issues you’re going through.
- We’ll then match you to the counsellor who best fits your needs for your sessions going forward.
- You’ll then work one-on-one with your counsellor for however long you choose to help you through your mental health issues.
We know that the way you feel about your counsellor is one of the most important parts of counselling. If you don't feel you can open up to your counsellor the process won't work.
We've got counsellors of all ages, genders and backgrounds so we are bound to have someone you will work well with.
