Marriage Care is a national organisation with over 65 years experience of providing relationship counselling. We believe that lives are enriched by fulfilling and committed couple relationships and our local teams of specialist relationship counsellors offer timely support when these relationships become a source of conflict and distress.
Relationship counselling could be for you no matter what stage you’re at – whether you’re just starting out or you’ve been together for years, or whether you’re thinking of walking away from a relationship or entering another – we can help.
We train our counsellors to work with couples and they develop experience in a wide range of relationship issues. They offer their time and expertise, working as volunteers.
We don’t charge a fixed fee, but you will be invited to make a contribution bearing the costs of running our service in mind. No-one is turned away because of an inability to pay.
Marriage Care has counsellors ready to see you now in Darlington – call 0800 389 3801 to book a local appointment. www.marriagecare.org.uk
