If you and your partner are having relationship problems you can get support to try to sort things out.
Relationship counselling – also called couple or marriage counselling – is when you meet with a trained counsellor. They'll talk about your problems with you and try to help resolve them.
Your partner doesn't need to be with you to attend a counselling session.
Find a counselling service through The Spark. Phone the charity's relationship helpline on 0808 802 2088. It's open from Monday to Thursday from 9am to 5pm and it's a free number.
If you decide to split up
Mediation can help couples who have decided to split up reach agreements about children or the family home. A mediator won't take sides or tell you what to do, and could save you asking the court to decide on arrangements.
Find support and information about separating from a partner.
If you're in an abusive relationship
If you're experiencing domestic abuse you can get help from support organisations.
Phone the Scottish Domestic Abuse Helpline on 0800 027 1234 to talk about your options. It's a 24 hour line and the number won't show up on an itemised phone bill.
