Shana Golding BA (Hons) Registered MBACP (Accred).
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.
Training, qualifications & experience
My private practice is in East Sheen SW14, which is easily accessed via Mortlake train station and London bus routes 33, 337 & 493
My previous work experience has included working at an NHS GP surgery in Surbiton. I've worked as an Associate Counsellor at a women's charitable agency and as an Associate Counsellor at a London University in addition to Private Practice.

Registered / Accredited
Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.
British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.
Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.
All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
Accredited register membership
Accredited Register Scheme
The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.
Areas of counselling I deal with
Fees are charged from £60 for daytime and £65 for evening sessions. Sessions 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.
I am an Aviva health insurance registered practitioner.
Please feel free to come along for an initial assessment session, which is a chance for us to get to know each other and see whether you would like to work with me.
