Don’t just exist. Live your life to the full.
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. Ignoring the issues won’t help, in fact they could worse, so the first step is to talk to someone who will listen, be impartial and help you get back on track.
Counselling allows you to talk about your problems and feelings, whatever they may be, in a confidential and calm environment. The counsellor is trained to help you come to terms with these issues and inspire you to come up with solutions that you can manage. At NECS we have a broad range of counsellors to fit your need, the counsellor will listen to your issues or concerns, talk through the options and help you to decide on the best outcomes for you.

We provide counselling to a broad range of people
NECS can work with children as young as 4. Young children can be anxious because of conflict at home or if their parents break up for example. Our counsellors use a wide variety of play therapy techniques to understand what is going on.
There are many common psychological and emotional conditions with which clients can present including anxiety, abuse, stress, agoraphobia, low self-esteem, depression, grief, panic attacks, alcohol misuse, paranoia, and even suicidal thoughts.
Sometimes people come to us when children or young people are having problems in their family and it becomes clear that the family dynamic is causing a problem. We can work with young people and their parents or carers.
We all have events in our life which cause us to look at things in a different way or which cause us anxiety. Working with a group of people with a trainer who will give you some coping strategies can help you to deal with these events.
A phobia is an overwhelming and debilitating fear of an object, place, situation, feeling or animal. Phobias are more pronounced than fears. They develop when a person has an exaggerated or unrealistic sense of danger about a situation or object.
Most people will experience problems with their sex life at some point. Your sex life can change for any number of reasons – having a baby, new partner, being tired, stressed or depressed or if you are lacking in self-esteem.
Trauma comes in many forms and different people react differently but most people who experience a traumatic event will recover in time with the help of family and friends and will not experience any long-term problems. If problems do develop, it could happen immediately or sometimes even years later.
At North East Counselling Services we understand many of the issues that you and/or members of your family may be facing following time spent in military service. We know the transition to civilian life can be a struggle for you and your family. We can help as we’ve helped many others.
