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.
Integrative Relational Counsellor
MBACP Registered, BA Hons
Shana Golding is qualified with a 1st Class Hons Degree in Integrative-Relational Counselling. She is a registered 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 past work experience has been in a busy NHS GP surgery, working with GP referred clients. She's helped client's with a broad range of presenting issues, such as depression, anxiety, loss, relationship issues, self-harm, work related bullying and obsessive compulsive behaviours.
Shana is now a Partner at The Practice, a private counselling group based in Surrey. Shana can also see you for private counselling sessions at rooms based in Kingston-Upon-Thames. She also works as an Associate Counsellor for a Women's Charitable Agency and at a London University where she offers counselling to students, working with both adults and young adults.
Sessions are 50 mins and usually take place at the same time and place every week. I offer Counselling in East Molesey where I am a Partner at The Practice, close to Hampton Court. I also offer counselling in Kingston upon Thames in the Canbury area of Kingston, close to Norbiton station.
Each session is charged at £60. 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.
