Therapy & Self-Care for Women

Counselling is self-care

Like yoga but different.

It’s caring for your emotional & spiritual well-being through exploring your feelings.

Whether you’re feeling alone, experiencing difficult emotions or seeking some clarity in your life, counselling can help.

Recent studies from the ICCE showed that 80% of clients in counselling end up in a better place than those who don’t seek help.

Private counselling puts you in control of what you want to work on, when & for how long.

No GP referrals or long waiting lists.

You can safely explore what you choose, free of judgement, creating an opportunity for greater self-discovery, reflection & positive change.

Frequently Asked Counselling Questions

Counselling or therapy?

The words 'counselling' & 'therapy' are considered the same so are interchangeable. I use them both equally.

Why should I choose you to be my counsellor?

When choosing a therapist it is important to look for two things:

  • They are registered with a recognised professional body such as The British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

Visit the BACP Register where you can verify my status (Caroline Harland Registration Number 382458)

  • A recognised qualification from a reputable institution

I hold a BA (Hons) in Person-Centred counselling as well as a Diploma in Person-Centred counselling accredited by the BACP from the highly regarded Middlesex University. These qualifications are in conjunction with The Metanoia Institute who specialise exclusively in counselling & psychotherapy training.

Creating a trusting therapeutic relationship that is right for you is also absolutely key so that's why I offer a FREE 15 minute chat over the phone before your first session so we can make sure we're a good fit together.

How much does it cost?

It is £60 per online/telephone session, payable securely in advance online.

It is £70 per in-person session, payable securely in advance online (once I am safely able to offer in-person sessions from Shoreditch, E1 in London)

I do offer some student & concession rates.

Please email me to confirm if I have current availability.

How many sessions do I need?

Although there is no minimum or maximum, often 10-20 weekly sessions can be particularly beneficial.

While some clients continue for years, others feel ready to stop after 6 sessions.

It's a personal choice & something we can discuss together.

What if you can't help me?

Perhaps you're considering therapy with issues that feel very painful or challenging. It may feel hard yet it's a step towards helping yourself & getting the support you need.

I offer a FREE 15 minute chat over the phone before your first session with no obligation to continue.

Rest assured that I will only suggest we are able to continue working together if we feel we are a good fit together and that I can work ethically to a high, professional standard.

If for any reason, this is not the case, I will endeavour to signpost you to more helpful support for your needs.

Where do sessions take place?

Currently, ALL sessions are online via Zoom or the telephone. You can be based anywhere in the UK for our sessions.

I hope to return to in-person sessions when safe to do so in Shoreditch E1, London.

How Counselling Works…

She Can Shine Women's Counselling Therapy Service London

Every 50-minute session is £50. We meet on a safe, encrypted platform.

To help us ensure we’re a good fit, I offer a FREE 15 minute chat before your 1st session.

We can explore your hopes for counselling & any questions you may have.

If my style isn’t quite right for you, that’s ok & there’s no obligation to continue.

You’ll receive a weekly message to confirm & securely pay for your next session, continuing for as long as you need.

I’ve created a Zoom™ support sheet to help you get the most out of online working together.

Working together online / via telephone means…

You may find it easier to talk, focus & express yourself

You don't have any travel time & costs with coming to therapy

You can create a comfortable & private space in your home for your sessions (this can include cups of tea & PJs if you wish!)
