Relate sign at London North West Centre

Starting life back in the 1940s as Havering and Barking Marriage Guidance, we provided couple counselling for the residents of these two boroughs, in time expanding to cover the boroughs of Waltham Forest and Redbridge.

Our name changed to Relate in the late eighties and by that time, our services had expanded to cover Relationship Counselling, Sex Therapy, and Training and Education.

In the late nineties we started providing Children and Young Peoples Counselling and Mediation, and a few years later, Family Counselling.

Now we deliver services in nine London boroughs stretching from Tower Hamlets in the east to Haringey in the North and our 60 practitioners offer relationship support and mediation to individuals, couples, and families of all ages and backgrounds. 

Relate London North East and North Essex is an independent charity and a member of the national charity Relate.
