Counselling Birmingham

Welcome! My name is Diane, I am a Integratively trained Diploma Counsellor with 14 years experience as a therapist. I offer counselling to individuals, couples and families in Birmingham, West Midlands. 


I offer a safe enviroment and space to talk about what is bothering you. I will listen to you and try to find a way to help you. I use many methods, including understanding and education to help you work through and make a change. I like to help you with your personal development and adding new skills to make life more easier. 

I am compassionate and caring. I will listen to you and suggest ways you could try to change and then walk you through the changes you decide to make. I will look at you holistically and I will help you to develop self preservation and how you look after yourself. Sleep is vital to good mental health and this is something I can help with.

Exploring how you think can be really interesting and looking at mindsets you may have that need updating. I use other tools like metaphors and shells/stones, timelines to look at family history and genograms to help with looking at your relationships with family.


If you would like to know more you can email me or message me to arrange a quick 10 min chat or book an assessment with me. 

I work daytime and evenings from my counselling room attached to my home.


I am also a Clinical Supervisor who works with supervisees face to face or on zoom. 

If you have any questions please feel free to contact me.


Online therapy

I offer online/telephone counselling. I use a number of different ways for online counselling: webcam, skype or zoom.

Once we have booked a session I will send you an invite to join your prefered website and ask you connect before the session starts. When the appointment is due to start I will message you to say "Im ready to take your call". You can then call me. Should there be a problem with connection then I ask you to call me again or contact me on my mobile or office telephone to finish the call on the telephone.

Diane is an absolutely excellent therapist

Diane is an absolutely excellent therapist and helped me through a very tough period when I felt things were falling apart. We started with an initial assessment to get to know one another, then progressed on to around 8 sessions. Diane helped me develop the key skills I needed to combat the issues I was having. Therapy is a process and it's not always easy. You have to be prepared to give it time and put your leanings into practice. Diane is a knowledgable and supportive therapist and I'm really thankful to have met and worked with her.

A safe and caring space

Diane is super flexible with her appointments which meets my needs as a shift worker. Being with Diane feels like a safe and caring space to let out anything.... and it will all be treated respectfully and non-judgementally. The thing I enjoy most with Diane is that her sessions come with humour alongside truth and honesty.

Warm and engaging

I have been very impressed with my sessions with Diane. I went to her with a particular issue that had been a stumbling block for many years. Over the weeks she has been warm and engaging, whilst helping me to explore my feelings through questioning and discussion. I liked the fact that I often had something to work on between my sessions, which I felt accelerated my progress. Thanks Di!
