Lori White Therapy UK

Hello, I’m Lori. My extensive, real-world life experience has proven invaluable when working with clients. I was a journalist, a teacher and I have five years’ experience working with adults with mental health issues and physical disabilities. For over two years, I was counselling within the NHS IAPT service.

As a private practitioner, I’ve been offering therapy in Wimbledon since 2017.

During the pandemic, my counselling in Wimbledon moved online, using Zoom or Skype. But now I am pleased to say that I can offer a meet-up in a local park. We can walk a little or find a bench and experience that one to one contact that makes such a difference. The park is small and safe and centrally located. Later we can choose to go online if that is more convenient.

I have experience in helping clients with:

  • Anxiety and panic
  • Stress
  • Depression
  • Work place issues
  • Life transitions and significant birthdays: becoming an adult, becoming a parent,  mid-life crisis, coming to terms with ageing, preparing to die
  • Abuse – physical, sexual, emotional, financial
  • Self-esteem and confidence
  • Self-awareness. Who am I now?
  • LGBT+ affirmative
  • Family relationships
  • Partner relationships and breakdowns
  • Bereavement
  • Loss

Wimbledon therapy

I offer solution-based counselling: here’s what seems to be happening – now what needs to change to make your life better? 

In sessions, you choose the agenda and take it wherever you want to and at your own speed. I will not offer direct advice, but I will join you in the exploration, asking open questions, to help you think of things from a different perspective.

Together we will explore your issues to find insights and a new way forward.

You, your feelings and your care is my priority. I am a registered member of the British Association for Counselling Psychotherapy (BACP) and I abide by their ethical framework, to keep the work safe and you at the heart of all we do together.

I hold the Diploma in Therapeutic Counselling, accredited by the CPCAB – the Counselling and Psychotherapy Central Awarding Body.

In the counselling world my approach is called ‘integrative’. I integrate person-centred and psychodynamic approaches, to tailor-make a service for you. I often use resources from CBT and NLP to give focus to finding solutions.

I have undertaken inter-cultural training to help me understand more about the cultures and expectations of my clients in our diverse city.

I work in a down-to-earth, non-judgemental way, using straight-forward communication.
