Time to Talk West Berkshire provides FREE confidential counselling services to young people in need aged 11 to 25

What is counselling?
Counselling is a helpful private conversation with a trained listener. Together you will talk through your issues and come up with new options, find new ways of looking at things or get new skills to help you move forward in your life.

How it works
At Time to Talk West Berkshire we offer up to 12 weekly 50 minute sessions with the same counsellor at the same time and in the same place each week. Once you start counselling it’s important that you attend each week and make the most of this important time.

Getting Started
When you ring or email for an appointment, our office manager Luisa will book you in for a 30 minute assessment. In the assessment we will talk to you about what your main problems are, decide if counselling is the best route for you and, if so, give you some more information about the service. There will then be a few weeks wait until you are allocated a regular appointment.

More info about counselling

Confidential

Counselling takes place in a safe, comfortable private room and the conversation is confidential.

Helpful

Talking openly about your life, your concerns and your feelings with a trained counsellor is a really helpful thing to do.

Non judgemental

Our trained counsellors are open and friendly. They won’t make judgements about you or your problems.

Not bossy

The counsellor will not tell you what to do. They will aim to see things from your point of view and help you to make changes if that is what you want. A counsellor works with you.

Good listening

Our counsellors are trained to listen attentively, be there for you, support you and help you to improve your life.

Understanding

Our counsellors understand how challenging life is for you right now. They work with lots of young people like you and are here to support you.

Openminded

You can talk about ANYTHING in counselling. The counsellors are totally openminded and they won’t be hearing anything for the first time. Nothing is off limits.
