when I first came to counselling I was traumatised, anxious all the time and suffering from depression. Through the understanding and support of my counsellor I was able to make sense of my past and successfully work through my problems.

A very warm welcome to St Martin's Counselling & Psychotherapy. We hope you’ll take a little time to find out who we are, what we do and how our free and low-cost therapy may help you work through some of the difficulties you may be facing.

By offering free and low cost services, we have made professional counselling & psychotherapy available for many thousands of people in Birmingham since we established as a charity nearly 20 years ago.

Currently we can offer free short term therapy to clients under 25 that are registered with a Birmingham G.P

For clients over 25 we offer a very limited amount of free spaces each month after these are taken then our scale of charges will have to apply from the start.

Conveniently located in the heart of the City Centre , we provide a calm, safe and confidential space for you to deal with the emotional distress and pain you may be experiencing.  Your therapist will encourage you to express yourself freely and talk about your concerns and help you find your own way towards healing.

Our large professional team of counsellors and psychotherapists are fully insured, members of a recognised governing body and adhere to strict ethical guidelines

The therapy we offer can help  with a wide range of issues:

  • Anger

  • Anxiety

  • Bereavement

  • Depression

  • Relationship problems

  • Trauma from past and present experiences

Following receipt of your Self Assessment Form, we will contact you and select for you a therapist who has the experience and approach that will suit you best.
