Tammy Knights MBACP
Like many professions, deciding on who to choose can be overwhelming. So let me tell you a bit about myself:
I started my profession as a counsellor as I feel strongly that, given the right conditions, all people have the ability to change or become more aware of themselves. This can then enable you to leave some of the unwanted and unhealthy habits/ behaviours behind.
As a humanistic therapist, I use a person centred approach with aspects of object relations to work with clients aged 11+. My therapy is client led and works on the foundation of relationship. I work with mental health issues such as ADHD, Autism, Depression, Anxiety as well personal issues of self harm, family, relationships, abuse and neglect. I work integratively using psycho-dynamic and CBT knowledge and skills to provide the client with the support they need.
- Counselling 11+ Children, Teenagers and adults with a wide range of issues.
- Maintaining professional boundaries, placement standards and ethical practice.
- Safeguarding clients, making referrals, sign posting clients.
- Attend Supervision to ensure I provide the clients with a safe and ethical practice.
- Attend regular meetings, CPD courses and material.
I reflect and mirror your feelings and thoughts to help you explore them freely. My comitment to your therapy is to ensure you are held safely prioritising your well being.
Training, qualifications & experience
I am a level 6 qualified counsellor. My therapy focusses on the relationships exploring patterns of behaviour and attachments. I work with the client to identify areas that they feel need a different perspective or want to change. I am experienced working with a wide range of clients starting from the ages of 8+, working with play therapy to offer the child a safe space to explore their feelings.
My training and qualifications enable me to work with clients to explore a deeper understanding of self, allow space reflection, and discuss interventions that encourage change.
Solution focused therapy will look at a particular area or issue and use interventions to encourage change. This therapy helps the person rationalise and make a clearer sense of the issues in there life.
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.
