About me and my therapy practice
The second is that I'm not going to pressure you into saying anything that you are not comfortable with.
In very basic terms, counselling is about helping you to understand how you feel and why you feel that way. We can then work towards any changes you want to make in terms of your understanding of yourself and the way you perceive and interact with the wider world.
I can help you to come to terms with your problems by talking them through and then finding the most appropriate solutions. This process can involve setting goals, looking at the way you think about things or looking at your personal history so that we can deal with any problems arising from your past.
My name is Andrew White and I am the owner of Andrew Michael White Counselling which has been helping people in the North East since 2018.
I am a counsellor and a student mentor with years of experience in providing one to one support to people from all walks of life with various mental health problems. These included bereavement, men's issues, anxiety, depression and living with domestic abuse.
I worked as a Bereavement Counsellor at St Clare’s Hospice in Jarrow where I supported people in finding ways to continue with their lives after the loss of a loved one.
I also worked as a Counsellor at Cygnus Support in Ashington where I continued to work in supporting people who had experienced loss and bereavement as well as people who needed support in dealing with depression and those who had survived domestic abuse.
I charge a standard rate fee of £40 per 50-minute session with no minimum number of sessions.
I do offer a reduced rate of £30 for trainee counsellors.
During the crisis I will be unable to accept cash payment. Payment will be by accept bank transfers in advance of each session.

My first session
As with all my meetings, this is a very informal session.
This is about getting to know each other and seeing how we feel about working together.
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.
