About me

My name is Jenni Knight and have many years experience as a psychotherapist, counsellor and supervisor. The practice is in Feltham where I provide a safe,confidential, comfortable space where you can begin to think about the difficulties you are facing. Therapy and counselling can be open ended or time limited. Together, we would think about what would be appropriate for you to Help you begin to resolve things.

People seek therapy and counselling for many reasons; the sorts of issues people bring include anxiety, depression, eating disorders, relationship difficulties, sexual abuse or addictions while others may be facing loss/bereavement or be confused and uncertain about life for no specific reason. Whatever the difficulty might be and however long you have been struggling, exploring the issue with a trained, experienced therapist can help people make healthier emotional decisions and provide a more solid, internal peace of mind.

It is not unusual to feel anxious about contacting a therapist and it is therefore important to feel at ease, safe and comfortable. During the initial meeting you will be able to share your concerns and see if psychotherapy/counselling will be of help to you. If you decide to continue, we will find a mutually convenient time to meet for regular sessions either on a short time basis or for longer open ended psychotherapy. We will aim to meet on the same day and time every week because consistency has been shown to help. Through this process you will have the opportunity to rebuild your inner resources to move forward.

My specialism is working with survivors of sexual abuse including those suffering from trauma and post-traumatic stress disorder. Additionally I work, and have considerable experience ,with a wide range of different issues.

Training, qualifications & experience

Having worked in a forensic setting for many years, I began counselling training in the early 1980's. Initially, I worked as a cognitive behavioural therapist (CBT) undertaking individual therapy and groupwork. In addition, I have run groupwork programmes for women, for female survivors of sexual abuse, for people with addictions as well as sexual offenders.

My training continued at the renowned Tavistock Clinic where I obtained a MA and a certificate in psychoanalytic psychotherapy. At WPF Therapy, another centre of excellence,  I obtained a qualification in psychoanalytic psychotherapy after six years of rigorous training enabling me to also work with people several times a week on a more intensive level.

For many years, I have supervised psychotherapists, counsellors and trainees both in a group setting and individually. I have a diploma in supervision from the WPF Therapy. My supervision style is psychodynamically informed but I work with all counselling disciplines. If required, I can also act as a mentor.

I regularly attend lectures and courses to enhance my clinical practice as well as reading widely to keep abreast of new developments in the field of psychotherapy and neuroscience.   Each month, I run a group for trained psychotherapists where we discuss and explore new ways of thinking and working. A particular interest of mine is understanding how our preverbal experiences and early attachments influence how we function in our life.

My professional affiliations are with the British Psychoanalytic Council, (BPC) and I am a senior registered member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy, (MBACP, Snr. Accred) and I adhere to their codes of ethics and practice.

In addition to my private practice, I have had extensive experience of working in a forensic setting, with voluntary counselling agencies, in prisons both with inmates and prison officers, for a number of employee assistance programmes. Additionally, I have provided training regarding sexual abuse for local authorities and the police.
