Relate counselling is open to everyone aged over 16. Whether you are married, living together, in a same-sex relationship, separated, divorced or single, our confidential service can help you to deal with your relationship difficulties. You can come on your own or with a partner. At your first session (the Initial Consultation) a counsellor will talk with you for up to one hour. If at the end of this appointment it is agreed that one of our services may be helpful, we will discuss at what times you can come on a regular basis, and when this might begin.
In counselling, individuals, couples, families or parts of families have sessions where they think through an issue or work through a problem. The counsellor is trained to help people understand themselves better, relate better to others, work things out for themselves and make decisions about what to do next. Your counsellor will help you communicate openly and honestly.
Counselling sessions usually last one hour on a weekly basis. You will see the same counsellor each week and your counselling will continue for as long as both you and the counsellor feel it is helpful.
