What is Relationship Counselling?

All relationships encounter challenges from time to time and relationship counselling offers you a safe and non-judgmental environment to help you find a way through any difficulties you may be facing. Our team of specialist relationship counsellors are here to support you through the process.


How to get started?

Call us or Contact us to register. 
Initially, all our clients will have at least 3 sessions as part of an assessment process. This will help us to understand the difficulties you are experiencing so that we can make sure we are the right agency to support you longer term. If you come with your partner, we will see you as a couple and then you will each have an individual session with a counsellor.  This way we are able to get a full picture of your situation. 

If you or your partner are autistic, our counselling team has received additional training in order to support you. More information is available here.


When you start counselling 

Once you start relationship counselling it will involve a series of regular weekly, 50-minute counselling sessions - anything between six and up to a maximum of 15 sessions, depending on the issues you are experiencing. 


When will counselling help?

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 things are going well for you, we can help keep things that way.


How much will it cost?

The initial assessment process costs £75 per session for an online session and £80 for a face-to-face session, if ongoing counselling is agreed, each weekly session will cost £75 (online) and £80 (face-to-face). Funding and bursary information is available on our how much do we charge page

Check-in Service 

Check out our new Check-in service

Sometimes it helps to know that once you have completed your counselling you can come back and talk to your counsellor again. That's where our new Check-In service will help. You can contact us between 1 and 6 months after you have completed your counselling and have up to 3 one-off 50 minute sessions with one of our counsellors. You might need to remind yourself of important conversations you had; or refresh your memory about strategies you learnt; or revitalize an aspect of your relationship that needs attention.

Relate Cambridgeshire was very helpful in allowing my partner and I to talk calmly and openly about the issues in our relationship, without fear of resentment and judgement.
