About me and my therapy practice

Counselling is a talking therapy. The point of it is that it allows you to really open up to someone in a deep and honest way about all the stuff that’s really troubling you.

As we talk through things, I can help you gain a different perspective on how your problems have affected you. Together we can find more helpful and positive ways for you to deal with those thoughts and feeling and to move on with your life.

I will listen to you and support you as you share your problems with me. I will always be open and honest with you and never judge you or criticise you.

By identifying and developing your own strengths and resources we can help you to adjust to the changes in your life.

I believe that counselling is a very person specific process. The type of ap-proach used, whether it be CBT, Person Centred or Psycho Dynamic de-pends very much upon what best suits the individual sitting in your room and the problems that they present with.

It should never be forgotten that the most important person in the process is the client. Addressing their problems and helping them to understand them-selves, their problems and finding ways to cope and to move forward is what the whole thing is about.

Practice description

My name is Andrew White and I am the owner of A.M.W. Counselling which has been running since 2018 in the North East of England.

I am a counsellor and a student mentor with lots experience of providing one to one support to people from all walks of life who have had various mental health problems. These included bereavements, 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.

Fees.

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 students seeking counselling as part of their counselling course.

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

My Hours.

I see clients during the following hours:

Monday to Friday, 10:00am – 07:00pm

Saturday, 12:00am - 02:00pm

My first session

I see the first appointment as a very informal meeting.

It lasts for 50 minutes and involves a discussion about why you have come to counselling and what your expectations of it are. We will then both decide whether we can work together in helping you.

There will be some paperwork consisting of an assessment of your mental health. A contract, and a data protection form, both of which are legal requirements. This is completed at your own pace and I will help you with it if you want me to.
