We're here to help you make the most of your couple and family relationships, past, present or future. We can help you even if you're not currently in a relationship.
We are a source of support
Our services include Relationship Counselling for individuals and couples, Family Counselling, Mediation, Children and Young People's Counselling and Sex Therapy. We also provide friendly and informal workshops for people at important stages in their relationships.
We have a network of Relate Centres across the UK and a group of licensed local counsellors that provide face-to-face counselling and support. We also provide phone, email and Live Chat counselling so you can choose the support that works for you.
Our relationship help pages offer practical tips, guides and videos to help you manage common relationship issues such as sex, separation and divorce, and parenting. Whatever the issue, we can help.
We are a force for change
We work to champion the importance of relationships in society and in the media. We work with the government to ensure relationship support is kept at the heart of public policy. We carry out research to determine how our relationships are changing and make recommendations on how government policy should respond.
We are stronger together
We also work in partnership with Marriage Care to give you easy access to relationship education, training and coaching. Together, we aim to help you strengthen and nurture relationships in the early days, or as your relationship becomes more serious.
Marriage Care is a relationship support organisation that helps people build and sustain healthy couple relationships.
Months of effort go into planning the wedding day, but often much less thought is given to marriage – the shared life that comes next. And yet, committing to another is one of the biggest decisions people ever make in their lives. That is why Marriage Care offer these courses on important aspects of marriage:
- Preparing Together - for couples marrying in the Catholic Church - A course which includes Catholic teaching on the Sacrament of Marriage.
- Preparing Together - A one-day course for couples getting ready for marriage in a civil or church ceremony, or entering long term committed relationships.
- FOCCUS (Facilitating Open Couple Communication, Understanding and Study) - A personalised consultation using a research-based questionnaire. Couples take time together to reflect on the joys and the challenges ahead, and begin this new stage in their lives with more clarity and confidence. Sessions are facilitated by a trained Marriage Care facilitator.
