Raff KnightIntegrative psychotherapist
The passion I have for my work derives from my own traumas and challenges, and how I have been supported through my own journey of deep healing. As a result I am deeply committed to helping others in the same way. I do believe that this is a life- long process which gets easier as we grow and develop insight and awareness of ourselves. I have witnessed much suffering with those I have worked with, and I am always in awe of the incredible transformation that takes place in those who embark on their own journey of self-transformation of which I am an honoured witness.My first ever trainer once said to me, “You can only work with others to the level you have worked on yourself”……
I am very passionate about equality too,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 compassionate manner.

My specialisms include working intuitively with complex trauma and post-traumatic stress, using talking therapy ,creative arts, sound therapy/ energy healing and body work.
