family Relate's counsellors are experienced relationship experts and are specially trained to work with families.

Family counselling helps you to understand and cope better with the stresses and strains of family life.  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 when parents and children are going through 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.

Every family member can expect to have a voice and be heard within family counselling.  Relate family counsellors help everyone to say how they are feeling and then to work through their differences.

What do Relate consider to be a family?

In family counselling "family" is used in its broadest sense to include parents, children, carers, siblings (adult or child), step family members (step parents and step children) and extended family members.  Any or all of these may attend counselling.  A counsellor will help you to explore relationships within the family and work with you to move on.

Who can come?

Family counselling is for either individuals or groups of family members who are affected. It is a form of family support which works to draw everyone together to help the family resolve its problems jointly. Any combination of family members can attend; the counsellor will help you to explore relationships within the family and work with you to move on.

Can our children come as well?

The initial appointment is for family members aged 16 and over. Attendance of younger family members can be discussed with the family counsellor at this meeting.

If you are a parent and you have any worries about your relationship with your partner or with your children or step-children, you can also visit our Help with Family Life & Parenting website for useful information and advice for parents, or anyone in a family to help with the most important of relationships - the ones you have with your family.
