veterans


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. Make the first step and get in touch.

We offer a range of dedicated services specifically for war veterans (ex-service personnel) and their families in Gateshead and South Tyneside, tailoring services to suit your individual needs.  We will match you with the most appropriate member of our counselling team, several of whom are ex-forces individuals themselves, always offering a safe and confidential place to talk.

Services are provided in NECS consulting rooms in central Gateshead or from a variety of outreach venues across Gateshead. Counselling needs to take place in a neutral, confidential setting, therefore, we are unable to offer home visits.
