What to look for in a Relationship counselor
It’s important to check out with your relationship counselor is how much training they have had in relationship counseling. Unfortunately, many people who say they offer relationship counseling have had very little specific training in working with couples. This is due to the way counseling training is delivered in the UK.
Counselors and Psychotherapists are trained to work with individuals as this is where the bulk of the work that they do will be. There is a difference in the intensity and academic level of the training with psychotherapy tending to be more demanding than counseling, but in both trainings the focus is very much on working with one person at a time.

Relationship Counseling training
Relationship counseling is usually only given to counselors or therapists who have completed their basic training and would have to be sought out by the counselor. Sometimes the counselor or psychotherapist may have received one or two day’s training in relationship counseling as part of their course but that’s about the extent of the training they have. This begs the question as to whether you want to trust your relationship to a therapist or counselor who has only had about 8 hours training?
