Andrew Michael White MBACP (Reg).

I am a British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy registered counsellor who practices an integrated approach.  This means that I use the non- directive person centred approach to therapy which is complimented by the psychodynamic and cognitive behavioural models.

I base my sessions around the core conditions of genuineness, empathy and unconditional positive regard.

Genuineness means that I will be open and honest with you at all times.

Empathy means that I will endeavour to experience your world with you through your eyes.  

Unconditional positive regard means that I will not judge you and that I will accept you for who you are, irrespective of age, creed, gender, nationality, ethnicity, colour or religion.

Counselling is not a cure all.  Nor is it an advice service.  It will allow you to undertake a journey of self-discovery.  Helping you to better cope with the demands of the modern world.

If you choose to embark on a course of counselling you will be offered the following.

50 minutes sessions set in a safe and relaxed environment, free from prejudice and discrimination.

What you decide to discuss in these sessions is entirely your choice and will be kept completely private and confidential in accordance with the Data Protection Act.

I do not discriminate and practice an equal opportunities policy where everyone is treated with the same respect and care.

 Depression.

 Low confidence.

 Low self-esteem.

 Anxiety.
