Diane Lillis | Counsellor/therapist
Leave a message and I will contact you as soon as possible.
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.
If you have any questions please feel free to contact me.
Online therapyI 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.
Statement concerning the coronavirus pandemicI offer online/telephone counselling so their are no issues around coronavirus.
