About me and my therapy practice

My name is Andrew White and I am the founder of Andrew Michael White Counselling which is based in the North East of England.

I am a Bereavement counsellor with years of experience of providing effective one to one counselling for people who have felt the pain of a loss in their life.

Grief is a very personal experience. There is no wrong way to grieve. 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.

I can help you gain a better understanding of how your loss has affected your thoughts and feelings.

Together we can find healthier and more helpful ways to process those thoughts and feeling, helping you to adjust to the changes in your life.

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 deserves and gets counselling designed around their needs.

Practice description

My Experience.

I have worked as a Bereavement Counsellor at St Clare’s Hospice where I supported 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 with issues such as anxiety, depression and those who had survived domestic abuse.

My Training.

• 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. The Nottingham Trent University.

• 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.

Fees.

I charge a standard rate fee of £40 per 50-minute session with no minimum number of sessions.

During the crisis I will be unable to accept cash payment. Payment will be by accept bank transfers in advance of each 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.
