At #GatesheadHealth, our Occupational Health and Wellbeing Team is home to a fantastic in-house counselling service who are there to support you.

All colleagues can also access a number of further avenues of free and confidential counselling support – including from the likes of Practitioner Health and Gateshead Talking Therapies! In some instances, we may refer you onto another local or more specialised service in order to provide the most suitable and effective support.

Ensuring you can access high-quality, robust and timely support is our priority. While you can be assured that our in-house support is confidential, we know some will feel more comfortable accessing third-party support and so this page serves to outline some of the talking therapies available to you.

While counselling is not an emergency service, we have also included a number of signposting avenues for those in need of more urgent support towards the bottom of this page.
