Mother and two children in a family counselling session

Family relationships can be a great form of support, but they can cause a lot of stress too. If your family is going through a difficult time at the moment you might find it helpful to talk to a counsellor about what's going on.

What is Family Counselling?

Family Counselling can help with a wide range of difficulties, from long running rifts to problems caused by changes in family situations. 

Whatever the issue we can listen and provide non-judgmental support to get your family life back on track.

In the video below Relate Counsellor, Graham explains what Family Counselling is and how it can help your family.

What happens in Family Counselling?

You will meet with a trained Family Counsellor who will provide support and encourage everyone who comes to have their say and share their feelings. You will be asked to talk about what's happening and what you'd like to see change.

What takes place in your sessions will very much depend on what you hope to get out of them and on the unique needs of your family. Your counsellor will work with you to decide what happens next.

We know that every family is different so Family Counselling is very flexible. We'll work with you to decide how often your family can attend and where's the best location for your sessions.

What sort of issues can Family Counselling help with?

Family Counselling can help your whole family to communicate better, and to understand and resolve differences. It can help you all better appreciate the perspectives of other family members – and feel your perspective is being heard too.

When families go through change, it can be difficult to learn to adapt. Counselling can help family members to support one another through these difficult times, to reduce conflict and arguments and grow stronger as a result.

What is the cost of Family Counselling?
