Riverside Counselling Service

You can see our Covid-19 updates here and how it is affecting our Counselling service. 

We are currently offering counselling by telephone and video call.

A safe space to talk


Considering counselling can be a daunting prospect. Is it the right thing for me? How can I find someone I trust? How can it possibly help?

We’re here to listen to you, and give you the time and space to talk about what might feel difficult for you in a confidential and non-judgmental way.

We provide affordable counselling and psychotherapy to adults and young people from the age of 12.

Please note that we do not offer counselling to those on professional training courses where counselling is required as part of training or to those who

are in training and seeing clients and we do not offer counselling to those who are residing overseas.

Equality Statement

RCS was founded in 1989 to provide access to affordable counselling for all those in the community, regardless of background or circumstances. We recognise that discrimination operates consciously and unconsciously in our society, which means some people have greater access to opportunities than others.

Our core belief is that all people are treated with dignity and respect and we are creating an organisation where inequalities are challenged, and we anticipate and respond positively to different needs and circumstances.

We will meet with you for an initial appointment to discuss your needs and to consider if counselling and our service is right for you.

We offer counselling in Henley-on-Thames, Wallingford, Berinsfield and Didcot.

We are an affordable service and will agree a fee that is manageable for you.

You can contact us directly to arrange an initial appointment.


Riverside is a registered charity and we are committed to providing affordable counselling.

Sessions are subsidised by the charity through grants, donations and fundraising.

By choosing to support Riverside your help is making a difference to the mental health and well-being of people in our community. 

Thank you for all your support.
