Relate

We’re the UK's largest provider of relationship support, and every year we help over a million people of all ages, backgrounds and sexual orientations to strengthen their relationships.

With over 75 years of relationship support experience, we know that sometimes everyone needs a little help. We can help you if you're single or in a relationship, straight or gay, young or old. Whatever your circumstances we're dedicated to helping you get the most out of your relationships, no matter how big or small the issue.

We're here to help you make the most of your couple and family relationships, past, present or future. We can help you even if you're not currently in a relationship.

We are a source of support:

Our services include Relationship Counselling for individuals and couples, Family Counselling, Mediation, Children and Young People's Counselling and Sex Therapy. We also provide friendly and informal workshops for people at important stages in their relationships.

We have a network of Relate Centres across the UK and a group of licensed local counsellors that provide face-to-face counselling and support. We also provide phone, email and Live Chat counselling so you can choose the support that works for you.

Our relationship help pages offer practical tips, guides and videos to help you manage common relationship issues such as sex, separation and divorce, and parenting. Whatever the issue, we can help.

If you want to talk to someone about a relationship and get some support, there are different ways that you can contact one of our counsellors.

Remember that no matter how you choose to contact us or what your worry is, what you tell us is confidential and our trained counsellors have the skills and experience to help you.

Live Chat
You can talk to one of our counsellors live online. Live chat lets you send messages in real time and is completely free.

Email Counselling
You can send an email with your problem to a counsellor and they'll reply to you. It's like face to face counselling but you can access the text whenever you like.

Telephone Counselling
Call our booking line and we'll arrange an appointment for a counsellor to call you back. Telephone counselling is like a face-to-face session at a time that's convenient for you.
