What We Do

With over 60 years of experience Relate Bedfordshire and Luton continues to help people strengthen their relationships and pick up the pieces and start over again, as well as supporting couples, young people and families before things reach crisis point.

Our services can support your relationships through all the stages of your life; from being a child, through to your teenage years, becoming a couple, a parent, a grandparent and retiring into old age.

We aim to build and strengthen your relationships, not just provide a crisis service.

We all know someone who has been affected by the breakup of a relationship and many of us have firsthand experience of the pain it can cause. In the worst cases relationship difficulties lead to people having mental health problems, losing their job, becoming homeless as well as facing debt, loneliness and isolation.

Our professionally trained counsellors will support you in a non-judgemental way whether you are older, younger, straight, lesbian, bisexual, transgender, black, white.... Our counsellors and trainers will always give you the respect you deserve.

Relate has trained counsellors waiting to help when people make the brave decision to call and talk about their very private problems. By calling Relate Bedfordshire and Luton or visiting you can get confidential help and support.
