About Us

We are a charity providing counselling and therapy support based in Birkenhead. We also offer online support, so our geographical range is not limited to the Wirral and Merseyside area.

If you are in need we are here for you. 

We can offer support for individuals experiencing stress, anxiety and depression, bereavement, addiction, abuse, self-harm, suicidal thoughts and feelings, and many more services.

We can offer relatively short waiting times and counselling sessions of up to 90 minutes. At MCTC, we tailor the number of sessions to the needs of each individual, subject to regular reviews and whilst resources allow.

How It Works

How It Works

Our Vision


We want to make therapy accessible to all, not just those who can afford it.

Our team of therapists share our vision. 

By simply getting in touch, we can begin the process of finding a therapist who is best suited to you.  

You do not need a referral from any other agency.

Community Funded

We are very grateful to those who help us achieve this vision by supporting the costs of running MCTC. 

These include private donations and grants from charitable foundations. A list of those who help can be found in our Annual Report. 


We believe therapy and counselling support should be accessible to all.

 At MCTC, we tailor the number of sessions to the needs of each individual, subject to regular reviews and whilst resources allow.
