About me

My name is Tony Ian White, and I’m a qualified Integrative Counsellor (MBACP) & Brief Talking Therapist, an Anxiety UK Approved Therapist, an Integrative & Evidence-Based Clinical Hypnotherapist (GQHP, GHSC/GHR, CNHC), an Ericksonian & Solution-Oriented Hypnotherapist, an EMDR & Ego State Therapist, an Advanced Integral Eye Movement Therapist, and Master NLP Practitioner. I’m fascinated with brief strategic therapies, have advanced level training in both Direct and Indirect approaches to Hypnotherapy, hold a Certificate of Higher Education in Counselling & Counselling Skills from Birkbeck, University of London, and a Diploma of Higher Education in Integrative Counselling, completing additional Higher Education in Counselling (Clinical & Pastoral), covering all four major schools of Psychology, and the five comparative approaches of Person Centred, Psychodynamic, Cognitive Behavioural, Systemic, and Transpersonal models, including facilitator training with the James Nayler Foundation and their Emotion Education method of change-work. My learning experiences cover Mindfulness Meditation, Buddhist Philosophy and Psychology, having studied Mahayana Buddhism with the Foundation for the Preservation of the Mahayana Tradition, and looked into ‘The Nature of Being’ with the Concord Institute utilising Macrobiotics, Meditation and Zen. I’ve studied Spirituality, involving the practice of Taoist Tai Chi, Qi Gong and Meditation, including Hindu Yogasana (postures) and Pranayama (breath-work), as well as Zen practices and Meditations for well over 30 years, plus ‘energy healing work’ as a Usui and Tibetan attuned Reiki Practitioner. Through former employment within social services, the NHS, and the voluntary sector, I’ve worked within adult mental health services, in addition to working with adults, children and families with learning disabilities, alongside people from excluded minority groups, coupled with a wealth of diverse life experience personally.

I am an Anxiety UK Approved Therapist providing therapeutic support to the charity’s members and partner beneficiaries. I’m subject to Anxiety UK’s regular monitoring of my professional qualifications, supervision, continual professional development, insurance and professional body membership in addition to complying with the ethical framework and professional standards set down by my registered governing body.
