Welcome to my website


My name is Phil Hills and I am a fully-trained and accredited counsellor working in the West Midlands

I provide a safe, confidential space in which you can discuss your feelings and concerns, and work out how to live your life better. 

Counselling is a relationship where I can support you to reflect on what's going on in your life, to make better sense of yourself and work out how you want to move forward. It can be short-term (up to 6 sessions) or long-term (more than 20 sessions) depending on your needs and circumstances. While I will try to help you from my own perspective, I will not give you advice or tell you what to do - you are always in charge of what happens.

Does this describe you?

  • You are looking for more clarity in your life

  • Depression or anxiety stop you from achieving what you would like to

  • You are concerned about relationships at home or in work



  • be listened to, taken seriously, and understood?

  • understand why you act and react the way you do?

  • work out how to live your life in a way that suits you?


If you think counselling may help, get in touch with me. We can discuss over the phone or by email whether counselling is right for you, and if you choose to start, our first session is a reduced price.

People come to counselling for a range of reasons:

Some come because they feel unhappy with the direction their life is heading.

Some are struggling with anxiety, stress or depression, or because they feel they are reaching breaking point and are no longer able to cope.

Some are having difficulties in relationships, either at work or at home, and want to work out how to approach these.

Some have big decisions to make, and want to ensure they're making them for the right reasons.

Some come to deal with the impact of addiction, phobias or other mental health issues.

Some have a physical health condition that is making their life difficult to live well.

Some come to talk about the present, some the future, and some the past.

You may recognise yourself in the descriptions above, or you may not.

Either way, counselling is a space where you can explore what's troubling you at the moment with someone who won't judge you or give you advice, but can help you to make sense of yourself and your world.  

In our first session, which I offer at a reduced rate, we will discuss what is troubling you, and what you hope to achieve and change in your life. We will also talk about whether I'm the right person to help you, and if I'm not, I can help you to find that right person.
