North East Counselling Services was founded in July 2006 by carers as a result of personal experience. Incorporated as a Community Interest Company (CIC), we work for the benefit of the community and not for private advantage. We have a built in asset lock which ensures that any profits are passed back into the community and not taken as dividends.
Since its foundation North East Counselling Services has provided counselling and therapy to over 4,000 clients in and around Gateshead and South Tyneside. We have worked to help with a variety of challenges including depression, anxiety and stress related disorders. Clients have included carers, ex-service personnel and other ‘hard to reach’ groups such as children and young people (through our outreach work in schools). The vast majority of our clients report a great improvement in how they feel.
We work with a lot of people who are experiencing stress in the workplace, and so we know which aspects of a job can cause most stress. We have found that managing staff - especially without being given proper training - can cause a lot of stress for people. By improving the communication and understanding between managers and their staff, we can lessen the amount of stress points. We teach these skills to our clients regularly and they find they improve the relationships they form and reduce tension. We want to bring these skills to you and increase your capability as a manager.
