This page lists therapists who offer relationship counselling (sometimes known as marriage guidance counselling) to couples. Please visit the individual websites listed for further details about specialist areas covered, such as gay or LGBT relationships. This is an area of counselling that many therapists have experience in and you should also check our general listing of
The therapists listed have all identified couples counselling or relationship counselling as a key area of focus for them however their individual areas of expertise and depth of experience will vary. Some therapists are licenced by
, a charity which is well known as the UK's largest provider of relationship support (and formally the Marriage Guidance Council), however many highly qualified and skilled relationship counsellors are independent of Relate. Some form of specialist relationship training is however a good sign of the suitability of a therapist, and a good indication of overall quality and integrity is that the therapist is registered with a professional counselling or psychotherapy association such as the
(UK Council for Psychotherapy). These professional bodies have a strict Code of Ethics and Practice by which all members will be bound.
Couples counselling can require a number of sessions over 3 or even 6 months, although some therapists offer
or solution focused couples therapy, which focusses on specific problems and specific intervention methods. More typically, couples counselling therapy helps where problems seem deeply embedded and intractable and coping strategies need to be devised. Many relationship problems are triggered by a change of situation, which could be financial, physical health or the role of others particularly family members. This can strain a relationship and put pressure on the couple's ability to manage conflict. Managing conflict is a critical ability in relationships and is closely correlated with divorce rates.
