Higher demand for couple therapy combined with a lack of trained therapists means many people in the UK are not getting the support they need. That's why we are looking for people who want to train and work as couple therapists.

A study by Relate found nearly one-in-five (18%) of the population (2.87 million) are in relationships which could be characterised as ‘distressed’.  Yet the coverage of specialist relationship help (trained couple counsellors or psychotherapists) shows that there is only one therapist available for every 21,500 people living in the UK. So what is the answer? For one, we need more certified professionals.
