Interventions - Counselling Services for Young People


Interventions Open Door is a friendly and welcoming counselling based service.


We understand that life can be challenging and stressful, and sometimes becomes overwhelming. Our friendly and supportive counsellors can help you understand the underlying causes of your issues and will help you identify coping strategies so that daily life becomes less of a struggle.


Counselling provides a safe space for you to explore your feelings, talk about your problems or make some changes which will enhance your life. Our service is for young people between the ages of 11 & 25, and is delivered by friendly, professionally trained counsellors at our offices in Orsett Road, Grays.


We can help with a variety of issues such as anxiety, anger, depression, bereavement, parent’s divorce or separation, relationships, abuse, confidence issues and much more.


We also operate a school’s service offering 1-1 counselling, therapeutic workshops, play therapy and drop-in sessions. We work in both primary and senior schools.


The service is completely confidential (providing there is no risk of harm to yourself or others).


Interventions is registered with the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy.


Case Study

names have been changed to protect the privacy of our clients



Jo was a 16 year old girl in the care of the Local Authority. The relationship with her mother was not good. Jo felt that she needed some time out from the problems that constantly arose from her visits to her mother, but other people were telling her that this was wrong, that she should keep contact with her mother. Jo didn’t want to sever all ties with her mum, she just wanted time to concentrate on her studies and think about what she wanted to do with her life.


How we helped:

Through counselling, Jo was able to explore her options and think about her own needs as well as those of her mother. She reached decisions that were right for her, using her own thoughts and feelings.



Through counselling, and the actions she took, Jo’s confidence, self belief and sense of autonomy increased, and she felt ready for the next decision she would be making.
