What happens during counselling?

Firstly you meet with a counsellor who will explore with you what you want to achieve or change in your relationship. Where Relate can help, you will have regular sessions with a counsellor during which you'll talk about what is affecting your relationship and agree the best way forward

How long will it take?

Relate deals with every client's situation individually and the length of time counselling takes is tailored to you. Sessions are usually weekly and counsellors always work at your pace, not to a timetable, so you will never feel rushed or obliged to come back unnecessarily

Who comes to Relate?

Relate sees people individually as well as in couples. People who come for relationship counselling can be part of a couple, single, in a same-sex relationship, young or old

Is there a charge?

Clients who live within the Bradford Metropolitan District are asked to pay what they can afford toward sessions (please see home page for further details).

Any referrals received from a statutory organisation (for example GP referrals) will not be asked to make a payment.
