Relationship counselling helps you to make the most of your relationships, past, present or future. Many people believe that Relate is only here to help with the major crises in people’s relationships. But we are also here for the worries that might seem trivial or minor. Even if things are going perfectly for you, we can help keep things that way. We can help you to find the support that is best for you and at a time to fit in with your life.
Relate helps couples with a wide range of relationship difficulties, from increased arguing, discovery of an affair, problems communicating, to life stage changes such as becoming a family, or retirement, both of which can impact on the ways in which a couple relate to one another.
We have counsellors with specialist training in Domestic Violence and Abuse issues, as well as Mental Health difficulties and the impact of Childhood Sexual abuse on a current relationship.
Relate’s confidential service can help clients to work through their difficulties and begin to move forward. For further information, or to book an initial appointment, please call 0300 7729681.
Once you have made an appointment with your local Relate Centre you will be seen by a trained professional who will ask some questions about you and your partner, your relationship and what you hope to get out of your contact with Relate. At this stage you will also talk about the best times for your sessions, and you will discuss the cost of counselling.
Most counselling sessions take place face to face, however, telephone and email counselling are also available. Please ask for further details.
