Hilary Knight MA, MBACP(accred)
I am a BACP accredited counsellor who was formerly a teacher. I have 21 years experience as a therapist working in London agencies and in private practice. I aim to provide a confidential space where clients can talk about the issues which have prompted them to seek therapy 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 an MA in the Psychology of Religion; and have attended numerous short courses/workshops on issues related to my work as a therapist.
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. I also work with student counsellors.

£50 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 your therapy.
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 seek counselling/therapy 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.
