Shana Golding BA (Hons) Registered MBACP, Partner at The Practice
Kingston Upon Thames
Hello, I understand that this could be the first time you have thought about contacting a therapist, or maybe you are returning to therapy, but either way it can feel like a big step.
I'm a qualified integrative-relational counsellor, which put simply means that I can tailor different therapeutic approaches to suit your individual needs. I am able to provide a non-judgemental and confidential space for you to explore what is troubling you. The relational element of my approach means that the work we do will be collaborative and guided by you to go at your own pace. We will decide together whether we work in the short or long term.
My aim is to provide a supportive environment allowing to to gain deeper understanding of yourself and enabling you to bring about the change you want in your life.

Fees are charged at £60 per session and can be paid in advance by BACS transfer or in cash on the day. Depending on availability I may be able to offer a concessionary rate to those on a low income.
I offer a free telephone consultation for you to ask any questions you need to, to help you decide whether you would feel comfortable working with me.
