As someone who both works with people who have acquired brain injury and I have a brain injury myself, one of the common issues is the lack of self- awareness of the effects on daily living the brain injury has. Living with the effects of an acquired brain injury has its own unique issues, and […]
The Cygnet North East Approach
The majority of the clients we work with are disabled or have a health condition. We empower those we work with to be the best version of themselves and we do this through home care, counselling, employability training, meditation and reiki. We work with clients from all walks of life, in particular with people who have disabilities and health conditions and we have a particular interest in working with people with neurological conditions and acquired brain injury. We work with other client groups too and have vast experience of working with people from a range of different backgrounds.
We work with people through funded projects and, if you’re not eligible for our funded work you can self fund our services.
Our new domiciliary care service is committed to clear and efficient communication, high quality care and person centered support where we value our staff as well as our clients
Looking for Work?
It can be difficult to be successful in getting a job, particularly when you haven’t applied for anything in a long time or you’ve had a change in your health since last time you applied.
We can provide you with the help you need to not only be successful and be offered the job, but we can be your critical friend.
We will give you emotional support, helping you to overcome those self defeating thoughts and interview nerves.
We work with people in groups on funded projects to support people into work and also to support other aspects of their lives. We help people to feel less isolated with our support group where you can meet others with a disability. We have a chat and a cuppa and we go out and about and do interesting things.
You can find more information about our work and how we can help on our skills page.
Thanks for the support! There are so many people doing counselling and so many people doing the careers, but you have a unique way of bringing the two together into a winning formula!

After a brain injury there are many aspects of life that can be different from before. One of those things is insomnia and altered sleep patterns.
