Relate North And East Hampshire & Borders
Here at Relate we've been supporting relationships of every kind for nearly 40 years and in that time have helped hundreds of people through the provision of specialist Relationship, Family, Young People's and Psychosexual Counselling. Our aim is to to be known as "The Relationship People" in North and East Hampshire. To be a place where people feel confident to engage and work with us to improve their relationships and wellbeing. Our relationship with clients, partners and our own staff reflect this in all that we do.
Training, qualifications & experience
All of our counsellors have undertaken extensive training via the Relate Institute at a minimum of Diploma level and above. In addition our Family, Psychosexual and Young People's counsellors have all undertaken further specialist training in these areas.
As a centre we are accredited members of the British Association of Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP) and have twice been awarded Hampshire County Councils CAT mark award for our work with young people. At a recent Relate National assessment we were also graded as working at level 2 and 3 PQASSO quality mark standards, evaluated by the Charity Evaluation Service.
Member organisations *
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.
Accredited register membership
Accredited Register Scheme
The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.
Areas of counselling we deal with
Other areas of counselling I deal with
We specialise in:
- Relationship issues (couples, individuals and families)
- Sexual issues
- Family issues (e.g. blended families, communication, separation/divorce)
- Young people's issues (e.g. at school, with family, parental separation)
As a charity we rely heavily upon a combination of client fees and local authority funding in order to continue providing our services. We continuously aim to provide value for money and this is reflected in our lower than average sessions fees. We charge:
£60 per session - for relationship and family counselling
£65 per session - for psychosexual therapy
We do not wish payment to be a barrier to those on low income or benefits accessing our services and therefore have a limited bursary system in place to reduce session costs according to household income. Please contact us for further details.
We help support struggling relationships, improving the lives of those in our community through counselling, awareness and training. We work closely with local schools and authorities to provide support to young people and families in need of therapeutic support. Our work in local schools provides a vital place for vulnerable young people to feel supported through family breakdown, issues at home or with their relationships with others.
