Rajni Knox - Integrative Therapist [MBACP]
I am professionally qualified integrative therapist based in Twickenham. I am experienced in working with a wide range of issues (listed below). I believe that personal therapy helps people to reflect on how their experiences affect them and develop self awareness In a safe and non-judgemental environment.
I work using an integrative approach. This means I draw on different therapeutic approaches to adapt to the individual needs of each person.
An authentic relationship between client and therapist is paramount. Personal therapy can be a very empowering way to explore confusing and overwhelming feelings. Sometimes coping alone can become a struggle and talking to friends and family may not be enough. However, speaking to a professional can enable the space to communicate freely and honestly. It is not always easy to acknowledge the true feelings about circumstances we are faced with, and this where being in a therapeutic relationship can help to understand and be more accepting of the reasons for feeling as we do.
I have experience of working within the voluntary sector and am a registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy [BACP] www.bacp.co.uk

I charge £30 for an initial consultation [50 minute appointment] and £50 for 50 minute appointments thereafter.
Concessional rates are negotiable. I offer reduced rates to students and there are limited spaces available for people experiencing financial difficulties.
You do not need to be referred by a GP to make an appointment. When you attend the initial consultation, we will discuss your needs and expectations. This will allow us to determine together if Counselling is suitable for you.
There is no obligation to take the therapy further. if you do however decide to proceed and feel that I am the right person for you, we can then organise a weekly regular day and time in which we could meet on an ongoing basis.
