Youthline and COVID-19: Read our Important Information and Signposting booklet

Our team is thinking about our clients during this time.  We have worked hard to find new ways of working with remote support e.g. telephone, Skype/Zoom etc.  We are now cautiously transitioning back to face to face counselling but will continue to offer remote support also. If you are an existing client, you will have received an email from Youthline and our counsellors have discussed how best to work together.

If you would like to be added to our waiting list, please do this by emailing and leaving contact details – we will be in touch. The wait for counselling may be a little longer than usual, we will do our absolute best to offer you an appointment as quickly as possible.

For more information on other resources available for mental health and wellbeing, please consult this brochure. NHS East Berkshire CCG has also produced three guides to help children, young people and their families to cope with the stresses of the coronavirus pandemic. The guides are: Family life during lockdown, Five Ways to Wellbeing for primary and secondary school aged children and; Young Person’s guide.

We recommend that you and your child take a look at Kooth offers free, safe and anonymous online support for young people. Young people can chat online with Kooth counsellors, read articles written by young people and get support from the Kooth Community. It can provide vital support while you’re waiting for an appointment with a Youthline counsellor.

What we provide

Youthline provides a FREE, confidential counselling service for young people attending secondary school and adults who care for and support young people. We work across a number of locations within Bracknell Forest including our main base at Portman Close, Bracknell, and 10 secondary schools.

Please note that Youthline is not an emergency service and we are not equipped to work with high levels of distress. We are trained to work with Tier 1 and Tier 2 CAMHS threshold of mental health.
