Who are we
Mersey Counselling and Therapy Centre (MCTC) is a Charity which provides counselling and support
to people all over the North West.
Our offer to heal extends across a range of counselling including support for individuals experiencing stress, anxiety/depression, bereavement, addiction, abuse, self-harm, suicidal thoughts and feelings and many more services.
MCTC's purpose is to help those in need irrespective of their ability to pay.
We focus on need and helping individuals regain their inner strength to cope moving forward.
We pride ourselves on short waiting times and tailored counselling, involving no limit on sessions available and 90-minute appointments if they are needed.
The demand for our services continues to grow greater, particularly as statutory support services for individuals are continually cut.
The story of MCTC is a minor miracle...
MCTC's team of devoted Therapists continues to grow. We currently have almost 20 Therapists who selflessly volunteer their time for a minimum rate of pay to support those most in need. Without their kindness and community spirit our vision wouldn't be possible.
All of Our Therapists are fully qualified and either professionally accredited or actively working towards accreditation. ‘Professional Accreditation’ is a robust and demanding process requiring much reflection and work in order to meet high professional standards set by the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) or the United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP).
