About Us

Blossom - Carrs Lane CounsellingHELPING PEOPLE FOR 50 YEARS
Carrs Lane Counselling Centre Ltd is a charitable organisation run on a voluntary basis. We are one of the pioneers of counselling within Birmingham as we have been successfully helping people for 50 years, placing us amongst the longest established organisations of this nature within the whole of the West Midlands.

THE CENTRE HAS GROWN TREMENDOUSLY
Carrs Lane Counselling Centre started in 1966 as a drop in centre that aimed to support local individuals through difficult times in their lives. The Counselling Centre has grown tremendously and today is proud to offer a professional counselling service that is distinguished for many reasons. For example, unlike many other agencies we are able to offer counselling in  individual, relationship and group formatsAdditionally we are able to cater for a diverse range of issues, this is another aspect that sets us apart from many similar agencies.

SERVICE ACCREDITATION
Our agency has been awarded service accreditation by the British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy BACP which is an acknowledgement of our continued dedication to achieving and maintaining high standards of service provision.

FIRST CLASS PURPOSE BUILT FACILITY
To ensure your comfort and privacy, our service is offered in a first class purpose built facility. We encourage all our counsellors to undertake regular continuing personal and professional development and to work towards the acquisition of BACP accreditation. Furthermore we insist that each of our counsellors is a member of one of the counselling profession’s main governing bodies. This Counselling Centre recognises the value of difference and diversity in the wider community as well as in our own organisation. We implement an equal opportunities policy for all. We are also wheelchair accessible.
