Established as the Catholic Marriage Advisory Council (CMAC) in 1946 to support Marriage and Family Life. Marriage Care helps couples and individuals build and sustain strong, fulfilling healthy relationships, as well as providing counselling support in times of relationship difficulty regardless of ability to pay. And we’ve been doing this for over 65 years from almost 100 counselling locations across England and Wales as well as offering a relationship helpline on 0845 660 6000 for those in crisis through our partner Family Lives.

Marriage Preparation
If you are getting married or committing to a long term relationship, our specially designed, thought-provoking marriage preparation courses will equip you with insights and know-how, clarity and confidence to build the best possible future together.

Relationship Counselling
Our relationship counselling is delivered through one or more 50 minute (usually face-to-face) sessions with you and your partner, or alone if you prefer. You will be given a regular weekly appointment with one of our professionally trained counsellors.

Most couples have relationship problems sometimes. Our relationship counsellors are skilled at helping you understand how to make your relationship work and will support you in finding your own solutions. Call us between 9am-6pm from Monday to Friday on 0800 389 3801 to make an appointment.
