“Providing an Oasis of Calm in the Heart of the City for over 50 years”

We are a counselling centre in the heart of Birmingham. We are dedicated to providing a low cost first class counselling service for adults from Birmingham and the surrounding area, who can travel to meet a counsellor here. Through counselling, we can assist you with a range of issues, and have been helping in this way for over 50 years.

We offer  individual counselling and relationships counselling.


COUNSELLING CENTRE STATUS – Currently closed, but opening on 5th October, 2020

  • IMPORTANT: Information for clients regarding Corona Virus and the Counselling Centre Closure

Due to health concerns regarding the spread of the Corona Virus, and in keeping with UK Government guidance, the Centre closed in March 2020, but will be re-opening for face to face counselling on 5th October, 2020. We are also in the process of setting up an additional telephone counselling service to run alongside our face to face counselling service.

Current Clients – All current clients of the Centre will be contacted by telephone as soon as we are able to offer an appointment to resume counselling with their allocated counsellor on their usual day.

Persons on Waiting List – All those who have received a Telephone Assessment and been added to our waiting list will be offered an appointment to see a counsellor once we have reopened for business and appointments become available.

Persons not on Waiting List – Those who are seeking counselling but have not yet undergone a telephone assessment and been added to our waiting list, will need to contact us once we have reopened the Counselling Centre.

Once the Centre has opened this notice will be updated.



Our counselling service is accredited by the British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP).
