Relate Bradford (& Leeds)

Relate Bradford is a small, passionate and ambitious charity, in the heart of Bradford, providing a range of therapeutic counselling services, supporting young people, families, individuals and couples since 1948.

We provide people with the breathing space where they can feel heard, valued, respected, understood and more in control of their feelings and of their lives. In other words, to help people cope with the pain they are experiencing.

At Relate Bradford, we aim to develop and support healthy relationships.  We deliver inclusive, high-quality counselling services that are relevant at every life stage, helping heterosexual and same-sex couples, families and individuals to make relationships work better, by improving their understanding of relationships and what makes them flourish.

Family, Children and Young People's Counselling

Family counselling can help adult family members with reducing conflict and improving communication, when siblings aren’t getting on, or when parents and children are going through a divorce or separation. Because forming a new family is a challenge it’s at this point that many parents contact Relate for some support to help everyone settle.

All families are unique and have unique problems and our professional counsellors are specially trained to work with families to help resolve difficulties and problems.

We continue to run our services remotely during the COVID pandemic. Our phone line is exceptionally busy - please email if you do not get through on our phones.

Is Relate marriage counselling?

No. We do offer counselling for couples but we also offer counselling/therapy to children, young people, families and individuals. We are specialist in healthy relationships and can support people with relationships past and present.

Is counselling free?

We are a charity and need to cover our costs to continue to deliver our services. We do have a limited number of fully funded sessions (FREE). We do ask that if you can afford to, clients make a donation to support our work.

What can I expect from counselling?

You will have a first appointment called an initial assessment. In this appointment the counsellor will listen to you and discuss what you want from counselling. They will explain what services we offer and then they can decide if it is possible for us to help you. They will explain the number of sessions you might receive and answer any questions you have. Our counsellors are very caring, friendly, and non- judgemental.

Will counselling work for me?

You could attend an initial assessment to discuss what help you feel you need and what support we offer. Many people have said to us that they weren't sure if counselling was right for them but that they are so glad they have given it a go. Telephone or online sessions can make your first session less nerve- wracking. All of our staff are friendly and want to help you.
