Free helpline support

We are delighted to be able to offer a free helpline to anyone who is facing issues around their mental wellbeing triggered by the coronavirus pandemic.

Available for adults over 18, these free 30-minute telephone appointments are with a qualified Relate counsellor who will provide three things:

  • active listening  - not just hearing but full concentration on all that you are communicating, with all of the experience and insight from our expert counsellors to fully understand where you are;
  • psycho-education - explaining some of the relevant psychology of your experience and how that knowledge might help you overcome your individual challenges;
  • signposting - our counsellors have an excellent knowledge of all the services available to support you in this time, and will be able to point you in the right direction should you require further support.

Is this service for me?

We are all going through a time of heightened emotional intensity at the moment. This can cause psychological, emotional or social issues in us, such as:

If any of the above describe you, then please reach out to us - this service is for you.
