75 Years Supporting Relationships In NI

Many people turn to relationship counselling when things have already gotten really bad, and while we can provide support at this stage, we are also here whenever you need. Whether we’re working with you as an individuals, your children, you and your partner or with your entire family, Relate NI work through what we call a relational approach. By that, we mean that human beings rely on their family and social relationships in everyday life. 

Healthy relationships are a great asset and are essential to our health and wellbeing, as well as that of our families. However, when those relationships are not healthy, it can be a risk factor to our health. Working relationally means being aware of the role that our relationships play in maintaining our health and wellbeing. 

Working With You To Achieve Your Goals

Our CEO Duane explains how our couples counselling does not necessarily focus on keeping couples together, it focuses instead on what the couple wants to achieve and can help you achieve a good ending as well as helping you have a better relationship together.
