About Us

Relationships Scotland – Counselling Highland is part of a national network of 22 local services offering a confidential counselling service throughout Highland region. We are affiliated to Relationships Scotland who provide training and development for our counsellors and quality assurance to our organisation.

Relationships Scotland – Counselling Highland is a registered charity governed by a Board of Directors who are all volunteers and managed by a small team of employees and volunteers. Relationship Counsellors are trained to diploma level and work to professional standards. They receive regular supervision and continuing professional development and go through an annual renewal process to demonstrate that they have met the required standards. Our sex therapists are experienced relationship counsellors who have gained a further qualification in sex therapy.

Relationship support is vital for everyone in society. Whether married, single, living together, in civil partnerships, divorced or separated, people’s lives are defined and enriched by their relationships with others. We support the Scottish Government by trying to ensure that through supporting relationships, individuals, couples and families can develop their own solution to the problems they may face in their relationships with others to improve their wellbeing, mental health and happiness.
