About me and my therapy practice

I’m Emily Knivett and I’ve been a therapist for 4 years now. Previously, I worked as a Learning Support Assistant in a secondary school. Mental health was often a barrier for the students I supported and I wanted to do more. I began my therapeutic studies after experiencing first hand how reparative, insightful and holding therapy can be, and I was curious to learn more. I had various painful bereavements to process. I found that when I stopped pushing away my emotions, and instead learned to embrace them, things got easier.

Practice description

I draw on various psychological theories to suit each individual, we are all so different after all, and I believe it is the relationships between us all that facilitate healing. Studies show that a strong therapist-client relationship is more important than the therapist’s modality when it comes to the success of the work.

I am easy to talk to and offer a calm, collaborative space to explore what's currently going on for you.

My first session

A first session will involve a few questions about what you are coming to therapy about. This is so that I can learn more about you and the context of what you are currently experiencing. It is also an opportunity for you to meet me, ask any questions you may have, and to see if you feel we are a good fit for therapeutic work. It's important you are comfortable with your therapist. Sessions are 50 minutes long and I charge my full fee. I do offer a free 10 minute arranged call or video call if requested. Get in touch to arrange this.
