Our Services:

Relationship Counselling

Our relationship counsellors support couples and individuals with relationship issues that are affecting home life including arguing, communication, affairs, separation or divorce, abuse and control, lack of intimacy, parenting or co-parenting conflict. 

We can also help where work issues are having an impact at home, for example work stress, money worries, heath concerns, relationships with colleagues, shift patterns and child care.

Family Counselling

Our family counsellors bring together parents and children, siblings and extended family members including those from different generations and blended families.  We will get really talking and listening to each other so you can find a new way forward.  Common issues include parents with different parenting ideas causing friction, parents and children going through challenges, bringing together a blended and extended families and other family changes.

Children and Young People’s Counselling

If what’s affecting you is worrying about the mental health and wellbeing of a child or young person in your immediate family, Our Time for You counsellors can help.  They provide a safe space for children and young people aged 7-18 to talk about and better cope with the challenges they’re facing.  This can include issues around anxiety, self-esteem, friendships, relationships and bullying or changes in the family such as separation, parenting, conflict or loss.  Depending on the age of the child a parent may be involved in the initial assessment and take part in before and after evaluation.

Domestic Abuse

Relate is experienced in recognising domestic abuse or control in current or past circumstances.  Every client and their situation is different and we work within a process that prioritises and supports the wellbeing and safety of each client.
