I'm lesbian, gay, bi or trans and I'd like help with my relationship with LGBT Image
How can Relate help me?
Relate have helped lots of lesbian, gay, bi and trans couples and individuals in building stronger relationships. We can help with the issues that affect the LGBT communities, from the big problems that might threaten your relationship and have a big effect on you and your family to smaller issues that just make things a little less than perfect. Even if things are going brilliantly for you, we can help keep it that way.
Here’s how we can help.
We don’t pretend to know everything about anyone’s relationship or experiences, but we can say that we will work with you and your relationship, without judging you or presuming things about you. And people often find that talking things through with a counsellor really helps them and their relationship. You can talk through how the commitment of entering a Civil Partnership might affect you, how to manage a break-up, how outside pressures are impacting on your relationship or anything else you can think of. You can talk to a counsellor face to face, or by phone or online. For more about relationship counselling see our section on Relationship Counselling
Your relationship with your whole family might need some help to run a bit more smoothly. You can come to us for help dealing with your parents and sibling, or with how you are getting along with your children. Relate Family Counselling can help and we have a range of services that can help. click here.
