We live in an age where society is in flux and our personal lives and futures are far from predictable; financial uncertainty, coupled with changes in the law, are having an impact on personal relationships. More and more people are experiencing relationship crisis, often in the form of confusion, self-doubt, commitment issues, irritation, anger issues, anxiety and depression; many are questioning the benefits of being in a relationship. It is increasingly difficult to know with any certainty whether it is better to be single, in relationship, married, separated or divorced.
The aim of Relationship Services is to promote healthy personal relationships, whatever their shape and form. This is achieved through an in-depth interview where you are given the opportunity of being heard and your personal needs being assessed. This assessment interview can be tailored to your requirements – you can be interviewed individually, as a couple, as a group or as a family. The fee charged for this interview will vary depending on the circumstances and the length. An hour session for an individual is £100 or £110 for a couple. A family might require 1 ½ hours and cost £250.
Having an assessment interview allows you to make an informed choice as to the next step. Some people choose therapy to resolve their own personal issues. Others choose mediation in order to assist in separation and/or divorce procedures. Others realise that they need to learn new skills or develop new insight by engaging in education. Some choose a combination of the three.
Relationship services is based at Staplehurst Lodge in Sittingbourne, Kent. It has six consulting rooms and plentiful parking on site. Associates, working on behalf of Relationship Services, offer therapy, mediation or education. Each Associate is qualified in their area of specialism and receives supervision on their work by the Director or a consultant supervisor. In this way, Relationship Services is able to offer a high standard of service, which is integrated and tailored to your need.
Relationship services encompasses three separate wings; NKCP for counselling and psychotherapy, NKET for education and training and NKFM for family mediation as well as civil and commercial mediation. Each has its own procedures and codes of ethics.
