About us

We are an independent registered charity (Registered number 1053522) offering a professional Counselling Service with trained, supported and supervised counsellors across South Essex. We are part of a national network of Relate charities with over 70 years experience of supporting the nation's relationships. Relate South Essex is governed by a Board of Trustees, all of them volunteers, who are deeply committed to realising our vision of a future in which good couple and family relationships form the heart of a thriving society.

Who are Relate South Essex counsellors?
Relate registered counsellors are qualified to Diploma level 5 and come to us initially as qualified individual counsellors at a minimum of Diploma level 4. They are especially selected for their skills and knowledge, therefore they either have existing equivalent qualifications or receive an additional one or two year Relate training course in their chose specialism, such as couples work. This is why we are unable to take placements/trainee individual Counsellors from outside of Relate, as we believe that you need significant couples experience before working with us. To give you peace of mind all have current background checks, regular on-going training and regular supervision. Therefore you can be rest assured that you are being offered a professional service. We are also members of British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and adhere to their Code of Ethics and those of Relate.
