chat to a counsellor
get help over email
Congratulations for taking the first step in strengthening your relationships. It isn't an easy thing to do. Now that you know you want some support, what's next? There's a few different ways that we can help.
Need help with the day-to-day problems that come up in the relationships in your life? Or maybe you just need the chance to get something off your chest? Our Chat with a Counsellor session offers you a 30-minute phone session with one of our counsellors for just £30. We know your time is important so we'll do our best to see you on the same day, or within 24 hours.
During your session, our experienced counsellors provide a safe, non-judgmental space for you to express your concerns. You'll gain clarity and practical next steps to navigate your journey, and access to resources that can help you further.
Prefer working through your problems in writing? Then our message a counsellor service might be best for you. Message a Counsellor lets you send the details of your issue in an email instead. It's equivalent to one hour of counselling but gives you the time to get your situation across in your own words all from the comfort of your own sofa. Each message you receive from your Counsellor costs £45.
One Session Therapy is a new service to help you work through a specific issue quickly with one of our counsellors. You can come alone or attend with a friend, family member or partner so that you can work together on an issue with your counsellor. It's perfect for those who want to strengthen their relationship, but don't think their area of concern needs to be addressed over the traditional six sessions of counselling.
You might have a single big problem in your relationships which you feel like you can't move forward from, or you might be struggling to communicate through one issue. One Session Therapy provides you with the tools you need to make sense of things and practical steps to take action.
It lasts one hour and can be done on Zoom from one or two different locations. The session costs £90, and we’ll try to see you within 24 hours, at a time that’s convenient for you.
Ongoing counselling is one of the main ways we support people to strengthen their relationships. In ongoing counselling, you'll be matched with a counsellor who will work with you over a defined period of time -- generally around six 50 minute sessions. You can attend ongoing counselling on your own, with your family, or with a significant other. You can find out about the different types of ongoing counselling services we offer here. Or, if you already know what kind of counselling you're after, you can take the first step in starting the process by getting in touch with your local Relate Centre.
Mediation can help to settle disputes without having to go to court -- paving the way to a smoother separation. It can cover issues like property, finances when children are involved, child maintenance, contact and living arrangements.
Relate packages are specially curated by our wellness and relationship experts, to help you work through specific life events. You can use them to work through your problems in your own time and with the help of one of our counsellors, with a wealth of tried and tested resources that will help you make changes and take positive steps forward in a particular problem you’re facing.
