Please note: Relate Relationship Therapy offers affordable counselling with Interns, who are qualified and experienced counsellors, training to become specialists in couples therapy. Prior to seeing couples, all interns have already completed two specialist models of couples’ therapy training and approximately 20 hours of observations and supervision. As the Interns progress through their training, their rate increases, from $40 to $100 for individual appointments and from $60 to $150 for couples appointments. The internship usually takes 12 -18 months, so these increases are likely to happen across several months, but within the first year of therapy.
