Claudia Nye Knight
We cannot change people, we can only change ourselves, and in so doing, people start changing around us. I strongly believe that positive relationships are key to growth and well-being.
I provide a safe, non judgemental and confidential space for people to address their issues, be it relationship problems, trust, stress, anxiety, depression, ill health, loss, loss of desire, low self worth and more.
After years of work at Relate, I started my private practice in York 3 years ago, and now have over 10,000 contact hours seeing individuals, couples and young people. I am confident I deliver a service that works.
Training, qualifications & experience
I am a member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP). I trained at Relate, and am a qualified Relationship and Young People Counsellor – incorporating systemic and psychodynamic approaches, as well as adding art and narrative therapy techniques into the mix. With over 10 years work experience, I have a proven track record of gaining positive results. I also completed a Masters by Research in “Interactive Narratives as a Tool for Change”, as well as having studied Psychology in Argentina. I am bilingual in English and Spanish and offer Face to Face as well as Webcam counselling
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.

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).

I recognise that finding the right counsellor is key to achieving the outcome you would like. Therefore, I offer a free initial consultation. This is an opportunity for you to meet me and decide if you would like to work together (please note these free consultations are available in the morning and last 30').
Thereafter, each 50' session is £45.- and can be paid in advance by BACS or Paypal. Cancellations need to be done 24 hrs prior to the appointment.
My private practice is close to the centre of York, with free on street parking and near to bus and rail routes. Above all, it is close to the river and I always recommend a walk along the river to clients!
