About us

Relate South Essex belongs to "Relate the relationship people" who are the largest provider of relationship counselling in the country.

Our service based in Southend and Basildon has been established over sixty years and our role is as important as ever as the number of families dealing with the pressures of everyday life continue to increase.

We offer individual, couple and family counselling, sex therapy, education and training and mediation services.  We would encourage our clients to attend "face to face" counselling, however we understand that this is not always possible. Therefore we can offer telephone counselling when needed.

Please call us to discuss your requirements.

Training, qualifications & experience

All our team are highly qualified and trained and all have additional specialist training in couples counselling. You can feel confident that your counselling experience will be of the highest calibre and all in strict confidence. For your additional reassurance all our team are regularly supervised and continue with on-going training and development to enhance their skills. All of the team have enhanced background checks to give you peace of mind.

Other areas of counselling we deal with

On your first meeting with our counsellor they will discuss with you what concerns you have and talk through what we are able to offer and what not.  If we are unable to assist you we will ensure that we share with you details of appropriate services. As we have very experienced counsellors we are able to deal with most issues and although there are a number of services that will offer short term support many do not deal with the underlying issues, that then manifest themselves in other issues.  As an organisation we are not keen to label our clients and we would rather talk face to face  with you and work through any issues you may have together.
