About us

We are a national charity, specialising in couple relationships.

Marriage Care helps couples and individuals build and sustain strong, fulfilling healthy relationships, as well as providing counselling support in times of relationship difficulty. And we’ve been doing this for over 65 years.

Our vision is a society in which all adults can build and sustain strong, fulfilling, healthy relationships.

We are doing what we can towards achieving this vision by offering relationship education initiatives, marriage preparation services and relationship counselling to all, regardless of ability to pay.

We have over 200 counsellors offering their time and expertise at almost 100 locations across England and Wales, so you’ll probably find us in a community near you.

With over 700 couple relationship specialists and support team members, who generously volunteer their time and expertise on a regular basis, we are the second largest relationship support provider in England and Wales.

Fees

We don’t charge a fixed fee for our counselling service apart from an initial registration fee of £10 to secure your place on our waiting list. Each counselling session costs Marriage Care £65 to run, and your counsellor will ask for a contribution bearing this cost in mind. However, you will not be turned away because you cannot afford to give very much. If you’re a UK tax payer, you can add Gift Aid to your donation.

Further information

Need to talk?

All relationships have ups and downs, but sometimes they can get a bit stuck and it’s hard to talk things through or get to a positive solution. That’s when help from a skilled couple relationship counsellor can make all the difference. Whether you are feeling things just aren’t quite right or whether you are encountering serious difficulties or relationship issues, we are here to listen and to support you towards a positive outcome.

Our core couples counselling service is delivered through one or more 50 minute sessions. Sessions are usually face-to-face and are completely confidential. Call us on 0800 389 3801 to book a session. We also offer telephone counselling – call 0800 389 3801 to see if it suits your situation.
