Helping you to live your life
NECS understands 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 that start in your head can lead to a physical reaction. That's why panic attacks often make people feel shaky and faint.
We also know that counselling isn't for everyone. This is why we've put together some useful information which might help you to understand what is happening in your life. With knowledge comes the opportunity to change if you feel you want to.
We really hope that you find it 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 see a way forward.
Our first appointment is an assessment, which allows us to see if counselling is the best way forward for you.
We can provide counselling for adults, couples and children aged 4+
How does we work?
- You contact us to book your first appointment, we’ll aim to schedule it 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
- You’ll then work one-on-one with your counsellor for however long you want to
We know that the way you feel about your counsellor is one of the most important parts of counselling. We've got counsellors of all ages, genders and backgrounds so we are bound to have someone you will work well with.
If you would like to access counselling but can't afford to pay, we sometimes have funding to enable us to offer it free of charge. Give us a call on 0191 4661314 or email firstname.lastname@example.org to see if we can help you.
