Hilary Knight MA, MBACP(accred)
I am a BACP accredited counsellor who was formerly a teacher. I have 16 years experience as a counsellor working in London agencies and in private practice. I aim to provide a confidential space where clients can talk about what has prompted them to seek counselling and so I have a dedicated room for counselling in my private practice and a separate confidential telephone line where clients can leave messages.
Training, qualifications & experience
I have a diploma in counselling skills (WPF) and a postgraduate diploma in psychodynamic counselling from the University of Reading. I also have an MA in Education and have attended numerous short courses/workshops on issues related to counselling.
I work with adults, one to one, and have worked with a variety of people in terms of age, backgrounds, cultures and professions; particularly those working in the arts, the media and in the church.
Areas of counselling I deal with
- Emotional abuse
- Generalised anxiety disorder
- Low self-confidence
- Low self-esteem
- Postnatal depression
- Pregnancy and birth
Other areas of counselling I deal with
identity problems, developmental (eg mid life)
£45 a session (50 mins)
I offer once weekly counselling ie a regular time each week. This can be on an open ended basis or time limited /short term, depending on what you are needing from counselling.
If you have not had counselling before it might be helpful to know that the first appointment is an assessment session. It is an opportunity to talk about what brings you to counselling and to find out how it feels to talk to me. It is also a chance for me to think about whether counselling is what you need and whether I am the best person to help you.
If you would like to arrange an initial session please contact me; by phone or email me (giving me details of your phone number)
My practice is within walking distance of 2 underground stations (Ruislip and West Ruislip) and close to bus routes and the A40/M40/M25.
