Richard Mason Smith FdA MBACP MNCS (Accred).
Counsellor & Psychotherapist. Founder & Owner, Masons Counselling.


At Masons Counselling in the West Midlands, our experienced therapists offer a safe, non-judgmental, empathetic and understanding environment for you to explore your thoughts, feelings and emotions.

Sometimes, things just get a bit much – maybe it feels like there is just one thing after another, you’re on a treadmill – it just seems never ending. Are you struggling to cope with the challenges that life is throwing at you? Have you suffered a bereavement and feeling alone, sad, worried, scared about the future? Are you struggling to deal with the loss of losing that someone or something you were close to you? Maybe your relationships are proving to be a challenge.

They don’t need to be and you don’t have to accept feeling like this is a way of life. Many people are realising the benefits that counselling and psychotherapy can bring. It might be a cliche, but it’s good to talk. You don’t have to struggle alone.

Masons Counselling will be there for you to manage these in a safe and confidential place at our private practice in Great Barr, Birmingham. Whilst we specialise in bereavement counselling, we offer a range of support areas and therapies – each tailored for the individual.

Home visits can also be offered if required and can be discussed in an initial assessment session. If you need alternative help, please click here to see a list of other organisations that may be able to help you.

Thank you for helping me come to terms with the death of my late husband. Your counselling skills and kindness were just amazing. I felt able to talk to you about things I hadn’t talked about with anybody else. Keep up the great work that you do!
