Richard A Knight - BSc (Hons) Integrative Counselling,MBACP, Av Dip, Couples
I am a fully qualified and BACP registered integrative counsellor, with many years of experience working with individuals and groups. I am a professional therapist working in private practice within Norwich and the London area and also provide group and 1:1 clinical supervision in London hospitals (NHS). I also have 16 years experience of working with addiction both individual and running community based recovery and support focused groups.
I undertake both long term and short term therapy. I practice from an integrative and inter-subjective process and strongly believe that the essential part of counselling is to offer a safe environment and a non-judgemental relationship. The process of the relationship is to create a safe and nurturing space in which to work from. I work with issues such as anxiety, depression, health related issues, relationships, work related stress/burnout, bereavement, addiction and many others presenting issues. I integrate my many years of working and use this to understand ourselves in relation to our world around us.
I believe that every person is unique, and the counselling relationship is unique. As an integrative counsellor I am able to use the relational model of counselling and also draw from other models and theories when needed, meeting the needs of my individual clients.

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.
