   Family Counselling


Every family argues from time to time; but if your family members seem to be locked into a state of permanent conflict, or you are worried that they will become so, it might well be a good idea for you to come along to Relate for some family counselling.

What is Relate Family Counselling and who is it for ?

Family counselling is a relatively new service within relate, but one that is already proving invaluable for many hard-pressed families.

What it does is enable family members to work with a specially trained relate counsellor in order to resolve long-standing grievances, arguments, tensions and any other similar problems which have proved impossible to sort out at home.

Your relate family counsellor won’t tell you what to do, or take sides or pass judgements as to who is right and who is wrong; but what they will do is give everyone concerned an equal voice and an equal opportunity to explain how the family difficulties look and feel to them, and how they would like things to be different in future.

In terms of what family counselling can achieve for you, our experience shows that after only a very few sessions, new lines of communication and understanding between family members are rapidly established and that this often results in significant improvements in behaviour and more harmonious family relationships


Although RPKC is a registered charity and isn’t in the business of making profits for shareholders, we still have to cover our costs if we are to survive.  In practice this means that we sometimes have to ask clients to pay towards the cost of their counselling and therapy.   For details about our costs and charges please click here

Getting an Appointment

Family counselling sessions last up to 1½ hours and we aim to offer you a first appointment within 4 weeks of your registration. If you would like to get an appointment for family counselling, here is what you need to do:

On the phone

  • ring the RPKC office most convenient for you (see contact page)
  • ask to register for family counselling
  • be prepared to give our member of staff details about who in your family will be attending, together with your postal address and telephone contact numbers
  • be prepared to pay your registration fee over the phone using a debit or credit card.


  • Please fill in the on-line registration form and follow the on-line instructions for making your Registration Fee payment.
  • Make sure that your contact details are correct because our office staff will need to contact you in order to confirm your first appointment.

Finally, please make sure before you make an appointment that the other members of your family have been consulted about this and are willing to participate in a counselling process.
