Family counselling

Family counselling benefits the whole family by helping everyone to say how they are feeling and helps you make plans for coping with the changes together. Family counselling can help reduce conflict which means fewer rows at home and can help everyone cope better with their situation. Everyone has the opportunity to talk about their issues, without arguing. Everyone is encouraged to take part, no one’s opinion is given more attention than anyone else's which means no one should feel like they're being ignored. This helps everyone understand and appreciate how each other is feeling. Families can be a source of support, encouragement and love but sometimes relationships within families are put under strain and family members feel isolated or overlooked. Family counselling can help when siblings aren’t getting on, or parents and children are going through a divorce or separation. Forming a new family is a challenge and it is at this point that many parents contact Relate for some support to help everyone settle.


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.
