Every year you take your car for an MOT, so why not take your relationship for one too?
Introducing Relate NI’s brand new relationship support service… the Relationship MOT.
What is a Relationship MOT?
This 50 minute session is an accessible way for couples to check in with each other, and carry out some relationship maintenance. Healthy relationships are vital to our wellbeing, and routine maintenance for your relationship will help keep you both on track and maybe even add some sparkle.
While this is not a counselling service, you will be guided through the session by a trained relationship therapist (either in person or online) after completing a short questionnaire which asks you to rate some of the aspects of your couple relationship.
Want to tell them how much you love them?
Striving for more meaningful time together?
Want them to know your favourite parts of your relationship?
Tired of doing the majority of the household chores?
Want to have better sex?
Your counsellor will help you identify the strengths in your relationship, as well as the areas for improvement, before you leave with some activities and resources you can do together to help you address any issues and move forward together.
What have others said?
“I found the Relationship MOT an excellent method of focusing on we work as a couple and just as importantly, where we need to work. It was professional, insightful and well worth the time. It has reminded us of how much we have to be proud of in our relationship and why it is so important to occasionally review it with experts.”

“I would definitely recommend using the Relationship MOT service as a bit of a check in with your partner. I thought how the counsellor was able to steer the conversation was very insightful and nuanced. The MOT reminded us about why we are great together but also the importance of communication and respect.”
“Our counsellor provided an outside perspective which immediately helped us to agree that we needed to stop and think with more kindness and empathy for each other especially when stressed or pissed off. We both felt that our counsellor’s excellent and gentle facilitation was quite invigorating. So many positives!”
– Laura, Belfast
Book Your Relationship MOT!
A 50 minute Relationship MOT session costs £60 per couple. In order to book your MOT session, you will first need to complete the short questionnaire below.
When finished, click ‘send to second user’ and we will send a unique email link to your partner for them to fill in questionnaire.
This allows us to match both your forms together and then contact you to book you in. They won’t be able to see your answers however.
It might be a good idea to chat to your partner about the Relationship MOT before sending them the form.
If you prefer, you can also download the questionnaire using the button the bottom of this page, and take yourselves for a self-guided Relationship MOT at home.
