We understand how much courage it can take to seek support when life gets difficult. We also understand that the cost of counselling can be daunting and often prohibitive. This is why we offer a “pay what you can afford service” for professional counselling with prices starting from £25 a session. There is no waiting list and we can offer discounts for 6, 10 and 12 sessions.
We work online via video as well as by telephone and face to face in central Solihull (B91) in line with guidance to protect against the spread of Covid 19. We offer individual as well as couples therapy and we also work with adolescents from 16 years. We are passionate about helping people to improve their emotional health and wellbeing and we offer free resources through our website as well as via Facebook and Instagram #taketimecounselling

Member organisations *
British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.
Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.
All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
