NECS, founded in July 2006, has provided counselling and therapy to over 9,000 clients in Gateshead and Tyne and Wear. We have worked to help with a variety of challenges including depression, anxiety and stress-related disorders, helping people to “live their life.” Over the past 10 years, our clients have included carers, ex-service personnel and other ‘hard to reach’ groups such as children and young people as well as individuals and family counselling.
We pride ourselves in tailoring our service to your presenting issues and allocating you a dedicated counsellor so that the clinical process is more accurate and effective for you. Our feedback shows: 91% of our clients say that counselling helped them and 98% say they would use us again if they needed to.
All of our counsellors undergo enhanced DBS checks and receive clinical supervision every month. As an organisation, we are registered with the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists (BACP) and adhere to the codes reflecting the BACP Ethical Framework for Good Practice in Counselling and Psychotherapy.
