Relate London North West started life as the Harrow Marriage Guidance Council in 1946, operating from a local scout hut with a very small group of volunteers.
Over the years, we expanded to Ealing and Wembley – then, in 1970, amalgamated with Hillingdon Marriage Guidance Council. By the time we became Relate in the late 1980s, there were over 30 counsellors in the local Centre providing Relationship Counselling, Sex Therapy, Training and Education and Mediation services for the four boroughs of Brent, Ealing, Harrow and Hillingdon.
Renamed Relate London North West in 2004, we further developed our services by providing Children and Young People's Counselling for young people and families and also expanded to include the borough of Barnet.
Now approaching our 70th year, we serve a diverse range of communities in eight boroughs across Central and North West London. Our team of over 50 practitioners provides relationship support for individuals, couples and families of all ages, backgrounds and sexual orientations.
We're a member of the national charity Relate, which has a national network of Centres and is affiliated with the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP).
