About me and my therapy practice

Hi, my name is Andrew and I have been in private practice since 2018. My clinic is Andrew Michael White Counselling and I am based in the North East of England.

Are you struggling to come to terms with the pain and loneliness bereavement and loss? If so, it's likely I can help you, so here's a little bit about what I do:

I am a counsellor and a mentor with many years of experience of providing effective one to one bereavement counselling for people who have felt the pain of a loss in their life. I can help you gain an understanding of how your loss can affect your thoughts and feelings. Together, we can find healthier and helpful ways to process those thoughts and feelings, helping you to adjust to any life changes.

Practice description

Grief is a very personal experience.

There is no wrong way to grieve, and grief does not adhere to a theory of lineal progression nor to a time frame. In all the varying instances of grief, the worst thing for the bereaved is to bottle it up. To deny the death and to be afraid to cry.

Identifying and developing your own strengths and resources and finding the strength to continue in a new direction are important parts of the healing process. What you learn from this will help now and in the future.

Every individual client I work with, deserves, and gets counselling designed around their specific needs.

• Registered member of the BACP

• Diploma of Higher Education in Level 5 Advanced Diploma in Integrative Counselling: Including Working with Grief and Loss, Working with issues of Harm and Abuse. Autumn Leaves - Newcastle upon Tyne

• BA (Hons) in Humanities: Including Psychology, Sociology and History.

• Skills for Supporting Those Affected by Addiction. Level 2

• Working Appropriately with Loss and Grief

• Safeguarding Adults LEVEL 2

• Effective Anger Management Tool for Working with Men

• Understanding Men, Intimacy, and Shame

Additional Experience & Volunteering.

I have worked as a Bereavement Counsellor at St Clare’s Hospice where I counselled people in finding ways to continue with their lives after the loss of a loved one. I also worked as a Volunteer Counsellor at Cygnus Support where I continued to work counselling people who had experienced loss and bereavement as well as people who needed support in dealing with issues such as anxiety, depression and those who had survived domestic abuse.

My first session


This is largely a getting to know each other session.

There is an assessment in this session which helps me to understand your issues and the best way to approach them.

There is also a contract which sets out the guidelines for the counselling sessions.

There is no pressure to say any more than you are comfortable with.

After the meeting, if we feel that we can productively work together, then we will arrange our next meeting.

What I can help with

Abuse, Addictions, Anger management, Anxiety, Bereavement, Depression, Loss, Men's issues, Obsessions, OCD, Phobias, Redundancy, Self esteem, Self-harm, Stress, Work related issues

Types of therapy

CBT, Integrative, Person centred, Psychodynamic

Clients I work with

Adults, EAP, Older adults, Trainee, Young people
