Relate offers Royal Navy and Royal Marines personnel and their families FREE access to the following counselling services:


* Relationship counselling * Family counselling * Young people’s counselling * Sex therapy*


We know that Royal Navy and Royal Marines families can sometimes face unique pressures. Deployment overseas and separation for long periods of time can take their toll on family life.


Talking things through with a professional counsellor can help. Perhaps you’re not in a relationship- you might be recently separated, divorced, widowed or have been single for a while. Whatever your situation, talking to one of Relate’s professional counsellors can help you to work through any issues.
