Relationship Counselling

Relationship counselling is open to everyone aged 16 or over.  Whether you are married, living together, in a same-sex relationship, separated, divorced or single, our confidential service can help you deal with your relationship difficulties.  You can attend on your own or with a partner.

Relate is all about relationships.  If you want to talk about your relationships past, present or future, how your family is affected by your relationship, how you can improve your relationship, how you can manage a separation constructively, or how you can get over a break up, Relate is here to help you.

At Relate we begin by booking you in for a one off consultation session with a counsellor. This is an hour session which is generally treated as an assessment to your suitability with Relate counselling. It primarily provides you with the opportunity to describe problems and issues that you are currently facing and talk about what has brought you to this point. You also have the space to discuss what you wish to achieve from counselling. We ask for £65 for the initial consultation and we also ask that you pay for this session over the phone at the time of booking to confirm this appointment. We do have specific funding available so please call us on 01772 717597 for eligibility.

After this consultation, ongoing counselling would then take place on a weekly basis at the same time each week which also lasts an hour. There is no fixed number of sessions that you need to attend. The average recommended sessions is usually around six, however this can depend on your particular circumstances. These weekly ongoing sessions are £65 and we ask that the first payment for this is also taken over the phone. After each session that you attend, if you agree with your counsellor that you are returning next week, the week after or in a few weeks time, the receptionist will take a payment for that next session. This way all appointments are prepaid and your last session will already be paid for.
