Qualified Experienced Relationship Counsellor

Are you a qualified relationship counsellor with over 150 hours of relationship counselling experience?

Would you like to help us in our mission to support couples in distress – with professional relationship counselling – regardless of their ability to pay? We welcome applications from people who share our passion for relationship health and who respect and are willing to engage with our values.

All of our counsellors offer a minimum of 84 counselling sessions per year – that’s just two hours of your time per week – two hours that could make a tremendous difference to the lives of couples and individuals in your community.



Do you enjoy meeting people and putting them at their ease? One of Marriage Care’s most valued services is our relationship counselling. However, we cannot offer this service without a chaperone (receptionist) to welcome clients and stay in reception during the counselling session. We are looking for a friendly and helpful volunteer to spend a couple of hours on a weekday evening, sharing with other volunteers. We will pay local travelling expenses to the premises.

Ideally you will be available on Tuesday evenings between 6.30pm and 8.30pm.
