Relationship problems cause a lot of distress in families. Relate has a unique ability to support individuals, couples and families experiencing a wide range of difficulties.
Many people believe that Relate is only here to help with the major crises in people’s relationships. We are the first source of help when people face divorce or separation; affairs or major conflict. But we are also here for the worries that might seem trivial or minor.
When you come to Relate you will find we offer a confidential place in which to explore your personal concerns and look at how to deal with them. For some people coming to Relate can transform their relationships and their lives; for others we help them solve a specific problem and move forward with more confidence and less anxiety.
