Relationship counselling helps you to make the most of your relationships, past, present or future. Relate can help you even if you are not currently in a relationship.

Lots of people have an idea of what relationship counselling is and think that you only need counselling when things get really bad. But we’re here whenever you need us, no matter what situation you face in your relationship. Even if your problems seem trivial, we can help.

We are the first source of help when people face major crises in their relationships like divorce or separation; affairs or major conflict.

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.

 Who is it for?
