Young People


Young People’s Service

The Young People service at Riverside

If you are between 12 – 18 and are finding it difficult to cope or feeling overwhelmed then our Young People’s service is here to help.

Counselling offers you a safe and confidential space to make sense of and understand your current challenges. Our aim is to help you feel less isolated and alone.

On contacting the service, you will be offered an Initial Consultation to discuss what has brought you to seek out support. Following your consultation we will identify a suitable counsellor for you who you will meet with weekly. During your sessions, you will talk about what is troubling you and explore your thoughts and feelings without judgement. Sessions will be at the same time and day weekly and will last for 50 minutes.

Counselling can be offered face to face or online in Henley, Wallingford, Didcot and Berinsfield.

For those who require urgent assistance or advice our resources page may be helpful. 

The Space – Berinsfield

The Space is a free drop-in counselling service for young people aged 12-18, where you can come and talk confidentially about anything that may be worrying or overwhelming you with a qualified counsellor.

It runs on the first 3 Mondays of each month between 4-5:30pm at The Berry Youth Club. You can book directly by emailing by texting 07874971321 or by asking one of the Berry Youth Club volunteers, or anyone who supports you.
