About Relate Training

Relate Kent is a registered charity, part of the national Relate organisation.  We are based in Kent employing several trainers who also worked as Counsellors and have gone on to qualify as Relate Trainers.

Lynne Murphy, Training Development Manager

Lynne Murphy, the Training Development Manager and your first point of contact, has worked for Relate Kent for over 18 years, growing the training business into a successful and thriving sector of the organisation, working with voluntary, statutory agencies, charities and private sector organisations, schools and prisons helping them to develop an understanding of relationships and counselling skills.  They can then use these skills to work more effectively with colleagues and service users.

We also offer courses for individuals, delivering courses throughout Kent on a regular basis, covering topics such as Basic Counselling Skills, Supporting Distressed & Emotional People and Moving Forward (for divorced or separated people).

Relate’s workshops can help you

  • Learn how to deal with difficult situations
  • Improve or maintain relationships, both at work and at home
  • Achieve better outcomes for both staff and the people you work with

Relate can deliver a course designed specifically to meet your needs or we can offer one of a range of established training modules, e.g. Supporting Distressed and Emotional People or Counselling Skills for Staff.

All courses can be delivered either on your own premises or at a local venue.  All that we ask is that you have a room which can accommodate up to 14 participants, plus trainer.  We offer a standardised system of supervision and quality assurance which is highly regarded and integral to the whole philosophy of Relate.


Costs vary according to level and duration

  • 1 day course starts from £750 for up to 14 participants
  • 2 day course from £1400
  • 3 day Counselling Skills for Non Counsellors starts from £2100.

As a registered charity we do not charge VAT.  We can also offer half day workshops for £400.

All our courses can be adapted to suit your needs, budget and learning outcomes.
