Welcome to Relate Mid Thames & Buckinghamshire
Relate MTB is now using web counselling for all appointments during the Covid-19 outbreak to ensure we continue to support you during a very difficult time.
Coronavirus (COVID-19): week commencing 6 April 2020
The health and well-being of our clients and the Relate MTB team is of the greatest importance as we continue to provide support services to our local communities.
We are inviting existing clients sessions via web-counselling, using a confidential, secure platform.
Our admin team continue to support the Relate counsellors to respond to individual clients needs.
Appointments will be booked in the normal way and clients will be sent a secure link for their scheduled meeting.
Our feedback from the sessions that we have already moved is very positive so if you are unsure about whether this will work for you, give it a go and make up your own mind.
If you are a new client and wishing to start counselling, please contact us initially via the contact us page on this website or email: firstname.lastname@example.org

If you’re having relationship issues, you don’t need to suffer in silence. Talking things through with a counsellor who is completely objective can help you to work out the best way forward for you and your partner. That may mean staying together and working at the relationship or it may mean going your separate ways. In either case, having the right support is important when times are tough

Here are some genuine comments made by clients who have gone through counselling at Relate MTB which we hope will help to reassure those of you who have never had to do anything like this before.
‘Very dubious about using the service initially. Very pleased we did. We are as a couple in a much better place than we have been in for years!’
‘Being a naturally private person, I found the service very helpful and found it easy to open up’.
(Relate MTB post counselling feedback, September 2019)
Our vision is a future in which healthy relationships are actively promoted as the heart of a thriving society.
To develop and support healthy relationships by:
- Helping couples, families and individuals to make relationships work better
- Delivering inclusive, high-quality services that are relevant at every stage of life
- Helping both the public and policymakers to improve their understanding of relationships and what makes them flourish.
We need to guarantee our future by setting a clear ambition, and working together to deliver against that ambition. These are the values we work towards on a daily basis.
For the beauty, joy and learning they can bring to all. We value the personal courage needed to forge and sustain lasting relationships. We value the quality of relationships and we are non judgemental – supporting people to build healthy relationships, whatever the circumstances.
People are at the heart of everything we do. We create and deliver services around clients and potential clients’ needs. We value our people (volunteers, staff and supporters).
We work to reach out, and to extend our services and transcend barriers that people may face. We do this to ensure that people who might need or want our services can access them. We actively promote equal opportunities and diversity in all that we do.
Together we are stronger, more effective and can make a bigger difference. We seek to influence and collaborate with others to achieve our vision.
We seek to reflect, review, research and evaluate practice to continuously learn and improve understanding about relationship support.
