Looking after your emotional and mental wellbeing is really important and when things are getting on top of you it helps to talk – to a caring friend, family member, teacher or youth worker.
Our team of youth workers are here to provide a sympathetic listening ear and confidential support, help and advice to young people. We can help if you are feeling overwhelmed with emotions or are struggling to cope with the challenges you might face in your life.
At the Rendezvous we don’t judge. Everything is kept confidential unless we think someone is at risk (in which case we have a legal duty to report it).
We’re not counsellors but we have had training and have lots of experience to help with:
- Anger management
- Eating disorders
- Family relationships
- Gender identity
- School refusal
- Suicidal thoughts
Thank you for your kindness and help – you have helped get me where I am today. I will be forever grateful. You will never understand how much your calls meant to me and helped me… xx

If you are struggling with anxiety, you may be interested in this booklet. It was produced by a group of young people (15-17) who come to the Rendezvous and who also struggle with anxiety. They took part in the Discovery Project and decided they wanted to explain to teachers what it feels like to have anxiety. Their lives are changing now and yours can too. Do get in touch if you’re struggling.
