Here at Riverside we are able to offer intensive 1-1 support to those students who are experiencing severe episodes of anxiety by being fully present at their time of need, whilst aiming to include 1-1 emotional support as part of their timetable for weekly sessions to meet individual requirements as well as personal wishes.
We aim to provide an array of strategies to help students overcome these experiences & help them learn to manage their feelings independently, with on-going success.
The experienced, qualified staff here at Riverside are proud of the successful work they carry out & feel privileged to be able to build trusting relationships, enabling students to experience success & regain sight of opportunities & future possibilities.
*Whilst we aim to support students in many ways we try to ensure that parent support is also available whether this is with ourselves or sign-posting to other agencies & outlets.
