Lee White MUPCA BSc (hons)
I am a qualified Integrative Counsellor, who's background is rooted in psycho-dynamic, existential and person centred training. I have experience in helping people with a vast range of issues. I offer a safe, non-judgemental, therapeutic space in which people can explore and process thoughts & emotions, which they are finding difficult or confusing. By drawing on my Integrative training, I aim to find a way we can work together that is tailored to you. Together we can work on issues concerning the past that effect the present and future. I work with individuals on both a long term and short term basis.
Common reasons people may be seeking counselling are; they are feeling depressed, anxious, struggling with grief, unwanted thoughts, relationship issues and panic attacks. But people come to counselling for many reasons, sometimes simply to work through a particular problem or to process a traumatic event, which is having an effect on them. Some people use counselling as a way to get to know themselves or to try to work out why they repeat certain destructive behaviours. As the saying goes ‘knowledge is power’, the better we know our selves the more control we have over our lives and destiny.
My Integrative training means I draw on more than one approach I believe this stops me from working in a rigid way. I draw on Relational, Existential and Psychodynamic training. This gives me the flexibility to adapt and fit the therapy to your specific needs, and to create a warm and welcoming therapeutic space that encourages healing, exploration and growth.
Going into counselling can be a daunting prospect especially at a time when you’re not feeling your strongest. So if you decide to contact me our first meeting will be a chance for us to get to know each other, for you to see how comfortable you feel talking to me, and for me to find out what brings you to counselling. It is non-committal and a chance for you to ask any questions you have regarding counselling and myself. If we decide to continue we will work together to form a therapeutic relationship, where you can be open and honest about how the therapy is going, and how best to use our time together.
My practice is based in the Streatham which is within easy reach of Brixton, Clapham, Balham and Tooting.
