Counselling for young people, children and families in Hertfordshire and Buckinghamshire

image placeholder

Welcome to Way In, the confidential youth and family counselling service serving the Dacorum, Three Rivers, Chiltern and South Bucks regions. We’re here to help if you or a young person you know is struggling with how they feel at the moment, or is having problems with friends, family or school.

Are you stressed out with issues at school or at home? Are you anxious, depressed, angry or scared and just need someone to talk to who’s not related to you or someone you already know?

Or are you a parent or guardian worried about a young person in your family? Is your homelife one of constant arguments, shouting and slammed doors? Modern life can take its toll on families in ways we can’t anticipate, much less handle. The result is relationships put under sometimes intolerable stresses and strains, causing mental health issues, breakdowns, arguments and misery.

Why use a youth counselling service?

The main benefit of using a counselling service like ours is that we’re supportive and non-judgemental. We have no preconceptions about you or the circumstances that have put you in a place where you’re struggling with issues or are generally feeling like you can’t cope.

Everyone is different, and anyone going through mental health issues or other problems can benefit from talking to a skilled and experienced counsellor. Counselling provides you with a safe, secure and confidential place to be heard, separate from school or family life.

How counselling can help

image placeholder

We can help you talk about your worries and experiences, and help you work out how to manage them in a supportive way.

Our counsellors do not give advice – you’ve probably had enough people doing that! – but we do help you make positive decisions for yourself. We are trained to help in many different areas. We will listen to you carefully and thoughtfully, taking your opinions seriously, encouraging you to explore your feelings and the issues that are causing the current situation, then helping you find the right tools to resolve them.

If you are a parent or guardian, be positive about counselling as an option for a young person or as a way to improve your family relationships. Children and young people interact with the world in so many different ways and are exposed to influences that are not always good ones. And nearly all families deal with some sort of dysfunction at one time or another. But with the right help you can overcome difficult periods, major transitions, or mental health and behavioural problems in family members, leading to a much more positive and functional home life.
