What is Relationship Counselling?
Our counsellors provide a caring and supportive environment to help you find a way through any difficulties you may be facing in your relationship.
What can I expect in Relationship Counselling?
Once you’ve made an appointment with us you will be seen by a trained counsellor who will ask some questions about you and your partner, your relationship and what you hope to get out of counselling.
If you don’t have a partner or your partner does not wish to come to counselling with you or you just want some time on your own, that’s fine too. Our counsellors have great experience with both couples and individuals.
However you experience relationship counselling, you can feel reassured that it’s confidential and non-judgemental.
How can Relationship Counselling help me?
It really depends what you want to get out of it, but it’s rare that you will leave Relate without feeling a positive change. We’re not here to tell you what to do. But we can help you to talk together more effectively.
For some people, we transform their relationships and their lives; for others we help them solve a specific problem and move forward with more confidence and less anxiety.
