Andrew White. BA (Hons) Hum, Dip Integ Counselling, MBACP (Reg).
Are you struggling to come to terms with the pain and loneliness bereavement and loss?
My name is Andrew White and I run Andrew Michael White Counselling which is based in the North East of England.
A Little Bit About What I Do.
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 am a counsellor and a mentor with 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 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.
Training, qualifications & experience
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 issues such as anxiety, depression and those who had survived domestic abuse.

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.
Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.
All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
Accredited register membership
Accredited Register Scheme
The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.
Areas of counselling I deal with
£40.00 per session
I charge a standard rate fee of £40 per 50-minute session with no minimum number of sessions.
I see clients during the following hours:
Monday to Friday, 10:00am – 07:00pm
What happens in the first session?
As with all our meetings, this is a very informal session. It's 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 and after the meeting, if we feel that we can productively work together, then we will arrange our next meeting.
