How it Works
The first step is to call us on 01483 602998 and talk to a member of our client administration team. They will set up an initial appointment with a Relate counsellor, at a time to suit you.
At this first session, the counsellor will ask some questions about you and your partner, your relationship and what you hope to get out of counselling. At this stage you will also talk about the best times for your sessions and the type of counselling that is right for you.
You might decide to come to counselling with your partner or alone. Or you might have a combination of solo and couple sessions. But however you experience relationship counselling, you can feel reassured that it’s confidential and non- judgemental.
Each session usually lasts 45 minutes to an hour, and your counsellor will ask you questions so that you can talk about what’s going on and how you feel. They may offer you advice or ideas to try at home.
If you don’t like to talk a lot then they might try different things like drawing or mapping out your thoughts. It all depends on what’s right for you.
If it’s difficult for you to come to us for a counselling session, you can use our Skype webcam counselling service.
