About us


Relationships Scotland – Couple Counselling Central Scotland, provides counselling throughout Forth Valley.

We have been in existence since 1955 and during this time have been known as Marriage Guidance, Couple Counselling and Relate.
All Counsellors and Therapists are managed locally by a professional management team and board of directors.

The service is affiliated to Relationships Scotland in Edinburgh and are quality assured by the national executive structure.

Relationships Scotland is a strategic partner with the Scottish Government in recognition of our early intervention prevention work with parents of young children.

We wholeheartedly support the principle of equality are an all inclusive service no matter age, gender, sexual orientation, sex, gender reassignment, marital/civil partnership, colour, race, nationality, culture, religion or belief, disability or socio-economic group.

We will endeavour to ensure compliance with the Equality Act 2010 and we are committed, wherever practicable, to achieving and maintaining service provision which broadly reflects the local community and reaches all members of that community.

We provide a safe and highly confidential service for those of 18 and above.
We offer individual counselling, couple counselling, family counselling, domestic and sexual abuse support, older persons counselling, sexual relationship therapy, sexual dysfunction and intimacy issues and highly specialist sexual/porn addiction work.

Training, qualifications & experience

All counsellors are trained to diploma level in either relationship counselling or individual counselling and are fully registered and accredited or working towards accreditation with either BACP or COSCA and work within the Code of Ethics of these professional bodies. All training is fully validated and accredited. Any students are either on a Relationships Scotland Course or other accredited University counselling training.  All counsellors receive regular supervision by registered supervisors and are required to attend  Continued Professional Development annually.

Sexual Relationship Therapists are qualified counsellors who have undergone additional diploma training to qualify them to work with sexual difficulties and sexual dysfunctions. They are accredited by COSRT the professional body for this work. This often means working closely with NHS clinicians to achieve the best outcomes for patients.

There is also a very specialist service for sexual/porn addiction.
