Welcome to my site. Before I get to know you, please know a little about me...

Kirsty Knight

Designation: Sr Therapist

I am a qualified Clinical Hypnotherapist and Psychotherapeutic Counsellor having obtained a Diploma in Hypnotherapy & Counselling as well as and Advanced Diploma in Psychotherapeutic Counselling. I have professional memberships with the National Hypnotherapy Society and am an Accredited Member of the National Counselling Society. Both these professional bodies are dedicated to a strict Code of Conduct to ensure the highest possible professional standards are adhered to, but also to ensure the continued advancement of knowledge, techniques and continued professional development are made available to their members. Being part of these societies means that I am bound by their professional Code of Ethics. My Hypnotherapy qualification is also accredited by the Royal College of Nursing.

Prior to becoming a Psychotherapeutic Counsellor and Clinical Hypnotherapist, I had a Management career in the corporate world in various industries including MOD Contracting, Power Industry, Logistics and the Royal Navy.

As my career progressed I found I had a greater interest in understanding what made people "tick" and would often research various interests regarding people's behaviour & mindset. This set me on the path to formalising a career change, gaining qualifications and ultimately setting up my own practice.

During my course of Management jobs, staff training has played a large part in what I do and I enjoy training/workshop environments and writing bespoke training courses for both business & therapeutic industries. These training courses will endeavour to be learning-modality driven in order to produce the best possible engagement and enjoyment.

My therapy training was based on Multi-Model training & learning. What does this mean for you as the client? It means that I am not limited to any/only one form of treatment for issues that occur. I have a number of techniques available which I can call on as our treatment plan progresses. This allows for treatment to flow, develop and progress in a collaborative manner to final resolution stage. This can also equip you with coping mechanisms and techniques to both adopt, adapt and engage with for your future.

There are many situations/behaviours/issues which can hold us back in life; Counselling and/or Hypnotherapy can be utilised to aid in resolution to eliminate restricting behaviours or mindsets. Therapy can be utilised to help you set & achieve goals, both personal & professional. I provide a safe and nurturing environment for you to explore change or to talk through issues which you are struggling to process with empathy, professionalism and commitment to your health and both current & future emotional wellbeing.
