How it works

At your first session a counsellor will talk with you for up to an hour and for some people they find this session is all they need to clear their thinking and help them decide what to do and no further counselling is necessary. You and your counsellor will talk through how Relate South Essex might be best able to help and what options are available to you.

If in the unlikely event your counsellor doesn't think we are best placed to help, they will suggest other services which may be more appropriate.

Call us on 01702 342901 and we will give you an initial assessment appointment, usually within 2 weeks. When you come in, you will be seen by a professional counsellor, who will ask some questions about you and your partner and your relationship. At this stage you will also talk about the best times for your sessions. Please see the FAQs section for more information.

Hear from a counsellor
"My clients are genuinely surprised when we start working together - they think that I am going to tell them what to do, but itís not like that. They also come in feeling nervous and apprehensive but once we have met a few times, they even start to enjoy it. At the end of the day, itís a brave move to come to Relate, but for almost everyone, itís one of the best moves they have made."


Our counsellor was so helpful and we owe her our future together for which we will be forever in her debt.

Thank you so much for all your help. You were very in tune with our problems and helped us so much.

We found out more about each other in 2 sessions than we had in our 25 year relationship.
