Holistic Centre for Body, Mind & Spirit

People seek counselling for a number of reasons. 


Anam Cara provide a confidential, professional and welcoming counselling service in Sutton Coldfield, from our tranquil, contemporary, private rooms.  Individual counselling and psychotherapy sessions are a safe place to talk in confidence and explore your concerns in more depth, where trust and compassion can be valued and developed. Seeking support and guidance is a common part of being human and is sometimes needed to overcome difficulties.


Whether your purpose of therapy is learning more about yourself and your circumstances through personal discovery, gaining strategies to help with change or a different intention entirely, we can work collaboratively towards experiencing wellbeing.


We are happy you have chosen Anam Cara to learn about counselling in Sutton Coldfield.  We have plenty of information and advice on our site and hope that the openness of our ethos encourages you to get in touch to learn more, about yourself and us


Counselling is a talking therapy, you learn about your condition and your moods, feelings, thoughts and behaviours. Counselling helps you learn how to take control of your life and respond to challenging situations with healthy coping skills.  It differs from psychotherapy in that it highlights how an individual is feeling and what they think about the problem they are seeking help for.  Psychotherapy encourages the individual to go back to their earlier experiences to explore how these affect their current problem.


At Anam Cara we feel there are many benefits to counselling. While it was previously seen as a final option for those who have reached crisis point, now it is recognised as a preventative measure, a form of self-care in managing difficult feelings before they get worse:

  • To give you a safe place to talk to a trained professional without judgement.
  • To help you make sense of difficult feelings/emotions and understand yourself.
  • To help you resolve complicated issues, or find ways to manage them.
  • To help you recognise unhelpful patterns and/or behaviours, and find ways to change them (if you want to).


Counselling can help you manage and cope with a number of things, including:

  • Relationship problems
  • Bereavement
  • Anger
  • Stress
  • Depression
  • Anxiety


Anam Cara want to help you understand yourself, with counselling from our Sutton Coldfield based premises, we can give you the tools and confidence to take action and reach your goals. We teach, we enable and we facilitate but ultimately it’s you who takes action and responsibility for your health and wellbeing.


Anam Cara is unique in the range of treatments we offer and in the way these treatments complement each other. Our team of experts provide their services either as part of your broader programme of treatment or as stand-alone methods to revitalise your body, mind and spirit. At Anam Cara, we will always find the right treatment for you


People sometimes have the mistaken impression that counselling is only for a certain type of person. It is not. It is for anyone who recognises that they have hit a stumbling block – whether physical, emotional, psychological or spiritual – and is searching for answers, insight, guidance, direction or new life-skills. Is counselling right for me? ; they may address questions you have too. If not, please just give us a call and let’s discuss it and don’t just take our word for it, please read case studies and listen to testimonials as to what other people like you have to say.
