Raff Knight Ad Dip Psychodynamic Psychotherapy, Dip Gestalt Therapy, PG Cert in Transpersonal Arts and Somatic Psychotherapy, Qualified Sound Therapist, Cert PTSD, Qualified End of Life Doula Practitioner.
I am an experienced therapist and I have been working in a therapeutic setting for over 30 years as a psychotherapist/ counsellor and trainer, specialising in the field of mental health which includes, emotional and physical trauma/ depression, anxiety , bereavement, and sexual abuse, addictions, relationship issues, sexuality and intimacy issues. I also work with issues related to spirituality. I currently work in private practice with individual clients.
My specialisms include working intuitively with complex trauma and post-traumatic stress, using creative arts, sound therapy/ and body work. I have a particular interest in how trauma is held in the body, and have spent a large amount of time researching and working creatively to help individuals move through and transform their traumatic issues in a safe and holistic manner. I am also a trained sound therapist.
I have spent many years refining my approaches to create an integrated and balanced whole person approach, working with the mind body and spirit in a grounded and holistic way. I offer a very broad spectrum of approaches, this enables me to offer a service which is unique to every individual.
I am committed as a practitioner to help provide a professional, safe, compassionate and supportive and safe space for clients who are struggling with mental health issues and in crisis to be able to access the help they need as quickly and effectively as possible.
I am very passionate about equality and I believe that every individual has the right to as much help and support as their needs dictate, and that they are always treated in a dignified and respectful way. I believe that I offer a unique service based on dignity and compassion.

Areas of counselling I deal with
Other areas of counselling I deal with
I am interested in spirituality and often work with clients who feel lost, or have conflict about why they are here and question their life purpose. I think there is a mystic quality to therapy and I work with my intuition, and encourage those with whom I work to connect with theirs, the result of this is often a very deep process and a transformational journey .
