Relationship Counselling

All sorts of people come to Relate and find it helps them to understand what's going on in their relationships and change things for the better. Relationship counselling is available to all over the age of 16.

In counselling, individuals or couples attend sessions with a counsellor who is trained to help them work through issues, understand themselves better and make decisions about what to do next.

Sadly, many clients come to Relate only when their relationship is already in difficulty. Relate encourages people to give their relationships a regular health check, to help ensure that good relationships stay that way.

  • Clients come to counselling with their partner or alone, whether they are heterosexual or gay.
  • Counselling sessions are usually once a week for up to an hour.
  • Counselling is available throughout the city and county.

Clients can be seen at our main office at 83 Aylestone Road Leicester LE2 7LL or in the following small towns:

Ashby; Coalville; Hinckley; Loughborough; Lutterworth; Market Harborough & Melton Mowbray; 

Relate Leicestershire adheres to the Ethical Framework of the BACP (British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy) and is also an accredited Organisational Member of the BACP.

All appointments are booked through our Leicester Office 0116 2543011

What is relationship counselling?

An opportunity to talk together or on your own about your relationship. It is often easier to talk to someone neutral and the counsellor will help you look at your relationship differently and what changes can be made or help you to separate amicably and with understanding of what happened.
