The Space Gets New Furnishings at Counselling Suite Thanks to Lions

The Space (part of Riverside Counselling Services) has been able to purchase new furniture, lighting and pictures for its counselling suite in Newtown House thanks to a donation from Henley Lions.

Clinical director of Riverside Counselling Services, Hilary Arthur, said, “The extremely generous donation from The Lions will make a huge difference to the comfort of our young service users during their counselling sessions”. She was accompanied at the unveiling of the new acquisitions by the Chair of the Trustees, Teresa Johnstone, and Joan Evans, Ian Forster and Dave Murray from Henley Lions. Both organisations expressed the hope that the two charitable organisations would now work more closely together in the future.

The Space is part of Riverside Counselling, a charity based in Oxfordshire providing affordable counselling and psychotherapy services to young people and adults. The Space was set up in 2015 specifically to work with young people aged 12-25. It now sees over 25 young people every week and the demand on the service continues to grow.

Riverside are always looking for people who would like to get involved whether that be in the role of a Trustee, putting on an event to help raise funds, make a donation to help to continue to provide valuable services to clients or just to find out more. Please get in touch at
