Welcome to Relate Cornwall, helping build better relationships throughout the county

Relate Cornwall are the leading relationship counsellors in Cornwall. We specialise in couples counselling, sexual therapy, children and family counselling and bereavement. We also work in areas such as anger management and mediation. We have a permanent centre in St Austell, and we also offer appointments in outposts. What makes Relate’s reputation so strong is our friendliness, professionalism and approachablilty. Alongside our personal skills and counselling expertise, we never judge you. In our safe space you are welcome to discuss your feelings openly ; our only aim is to help you to grow and overcome these issues. In fact, here at Relate we are advocates of what we call ‘care counselling’ where you don’t just visit us because of a problem but also as a preventative measure and an ongoing commitment to caring for yourself and each other. Many couples visit us monthly or bi-monthly just for continuing attention towards their relationship needs. When we meet, we have an initial discussion and you can see if what we offer is right for you, with no obligation. After all, our relationship with our clients is key to growth and success. Feel free to look around our site, meet our team “virtually” and learn about the different counselling we provide. When you are ready, phone our friendly reception team to arrange an informal chat and arrange meeting us to discuss a brighter future.
