How can counselling help?


Some things in life are too hard to  tackle alone. Life can feel very difficult and talking to someone who is completely impartial can be helpful.

I understand that just making the decision to see a counsellor is a big step, so how do you choose which therapist to work with?  

I believe that a supportive environment and trusting relationship with your therapist is essential to promote healing and subsequent change.


I can provide a safe, clear space for you to look at what you find difficult in your life.  

The work we do is collaborative and guided by you, we can decide whether we work together in the short or long term.  

By providing a non-judgmental setting, I can help you gain a deeper insight into yourself, enabling you to bring about the change you want in your life.

About Shana

Shana Golding is qualified with a 1st Class Hons Degree in Integrative-Relational Counselling. She is an Accredited member of the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists (BACP) and abides by their code of ethics, attending regular supervision and continual professional development.

 Put simply, Shana's training means she is able to vary her therapeutic approach to suit your individual needs.

The relational aspect is important to Shana. The focus will be collaborative and Shana believes the relationship between therapist and client is key, so will pay attention to making you feel at ease.

Shana decided to train as a counsellor after volunteering with a charity supporting new mothers with post-natal illness, which remains a particular interest.

Shana's worked privately as a Partner at The Practice, a private counselling group based in Surrey.

Sessions and Fees

Sessions are 50 mins and usually take place at the same time and place every week.  My therapy rooms are in the centre of East Sheen,  close to Richmond Upon Thames and Barnes. There are good transport links with Mortlake station under 5 mins walk away and bus routes 33,337 & 493 directly outside.

Each session is charged at £60, for daytime appts and £65 for evening appts. Fees may be paid on the day in cash or by BACS transfer in advance. Please give 48 hours notice for any cancelled sessions, so that the cost of the session is not charged to you.

Before we meet I offer a free telephone consultation, where you can ask any questions.  The first session is called an assessment, where we get to know each other.
