Relationship Counselling

Coming to counselling is an important decision. Here we answer some of the questions that will help you take that next step with us.

Counselling provides a safe and confidential environment to talk through your problems. Our experienced counsellors can then help you think through ways to address issues. Our results and client satisfaction scores speak for themselves.

At Tavistock Relationships, we are expert in working with couples but also work with individuals.  We help people from all communities and backgrounds.

How does it work?

Our work with you starts with an initial consultation with a counsellor or psychotherapist.

You can choose to attend with your partner or alone. At this session you’ll have the chance to talk through any concerns and ask any questions about how the counselling process works.  People generally find this initial consultation very helpful.

If you then want to take things forward, we’ll agree a time that works with sessions delivered on a weekly basis. You can read more about the counselling process here.


In light of the ongoing COVID-19 situation we are currently offering online sessions and a limited in person service from our central London centres. 

How much does it cost?

As a not-for-profit organisation, we believe that relationship counselling should be accessible to all. We set fees for priced services across three categories, Senior Therapist, general service rate and reduced fee service, to find out more visit here. You can read more about fees here.
