Riverside Counselling Service

Charity description

Thank you for visiting our profile page on MyDonate.

Riverside Counselling Service is a charity that has been providing affordable counselling for adults and young people from the age of 12 in Henley-on-Thames and the surrounding areas since 1989. In recent years, the service has expanded and now provides counselling in the Wallingford, Didcot and Berinsfield areas as well. Over 40 counsellors give their time to see approximately 125 clients a week.

The NHS is unable to keep up with the increasing demand for mental health care and not everyone can afford private counselling. Riverside bridges this gap by providing affordable counselling with little or no waiting time, for those in the community who need help right now. Demand for our counselling services grows each year, with the number of enquiries increasing by 50% last year.

We know that counselling works. We regularly monitor our clients’ progress and 87% of them make a significant improvement over the course of their therapy.

Most families are touched by mental health problems in some way, but many do not have access to the help they need.  Riverside has been meeting that need in our community for more than 25 years.

Charity No: 1018853
