The Rendezvous offers a mix of free, low-cost and private specialist counselling for young people (5 to 25) at the centre, schools and other alternative settings. Led by Counsellors with the relevant training in working with children and young people it is an important development of our service and the local support available for young people in need in our community.

Counselling is not a quick fix for someone’s problems The young person must be ready to commit to engaging in the therapeutic process and attend weekly 50 minute sessions.
