About us

Relate Milton Keynes - Providing Professional Relationship Support

People still think of Relate as ‘Marriage Guidance’ but we are so much more….

Relationships seldom run smoothly and at some time the likelihood is we will encounter a problem; this may be with a partner or ex-partner, a friend, a family member, or perhaps a work colleague.

You don’t have to be married or even have a partner to come to Relate MK, we offer support to individuals, couples, families and young people.

There are lots of different reasons why people contact Relate MK for help e.g. communication difficulties, issues following separation or divorce, bereavement/loss, sexual problems, changes in the family e.g. the arrival of a new baby, a new partner, step children etc.

Our advice is don’t leave it until it is too late. Come along and speak to one of our counsellors who can help you to get things back on track or help you to see a way forward. Our counsellors don’t judge and they really do care about improving your relationships.

Registered / Accredited

Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.

BACP

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy

BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.

Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.

All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
