Hello my name is Brian White.
I work with an integrative model combining elements from humanistic, cognitive-behavioural and psychodynamic methods. These are tailored to your needs as each person responds differently to the various approaches. This is done with you by initially planning the sessions and with continuous feedback during therapy to ensure you get the most out of your time with me. With sexual and relationship issues I work in a bio-psycho-social model combining biology/medical work with your GP if relevant, counselling theory and cultural/inter-personal work to cover all possibilities that could be causing the problem.
Through guidance and work, while being treated in a warm and non-judgmental manner, anyone can attain a better understanding of themselves and how to get to where they want to be.
I have worked with a wide variety of clients from many different ages, genders, races and religions with a range of issues.
The sessions can be short-term, long-term or even a single session, there is no minimum or maximum number of sessions as we will work to an ending that you are happy with.
I work in a private practice either face-to-face in a purpose-built room, online (Zoom, Skype or Signal), phone or it maybe possible for me to come to you. I mostly work in the daytime though some evenings and weekends are available.
Training, qualifications & experience
I qualified as a counsellor in 2016 with AQA and became a registered member with BACP in 2017. I completed a 2-year Diploma in Clinical Sexology with COSRT in 2021.
I attend regular confidential supervision to ensure I am working in the best way for my clients, and frequently go on courses to increase my knowledge and abilities
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.
College of Sexual and Relationship Therapists
COSRT is the UK’s leading membership organisation for therapists specialising in sexual and relationship issues.
All members must abide by their Code of Ethics and the performance of accredited members is regularly monitored.
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.
