Hello my name is Cass Knight and I created this website so that you can find out a little more about Bedford Counselling and the type of therapy I offer. I know from personal experience that It can be hard to start therapy; but by looking at this website and no doubt others, you have taken the initial step.
Having done some searching, you are probably now aware that there are many different types of counselling. In fact, there are over 400 different models of Psychotherapy in the West and a large number of counsellors out there too!
Finding a qualified counsellor who will work with you in a non-judgemental, confidential and supportive way and establishing a relationship of trust and respect is probably your most important goal.
As an experienced counsellor and psychotherapist, I offer a safe place for us to work together to explore what’s troubling you with the aim of helping you gain a deeper understanding of your concerns and make sense of, and resolve the challenges you are facing in your life.
I feel passionate about therapy as a means of helping you to find within yourself answers that you likely already hold. I can be there through the tough times and when it feels as though you are stuck and offer both time limited and open ended counselling to meet your needs.
As a Registered Member of the BACP, I work to their ethical code of conduct offering confidential, sensitive, relationship-orientated therapy.
Bedford Counselling primarily offers Psychodynamic Counselling for a variety of difficulties that impact negatively on your quality of life.
Psychodynamic counsellors believe that many emotional problems originate in childhood and that our patterns of relating to present life challenges, were often formed in early life.
This form of counselling relies on the positive relationship between counsellor and client and is about reflecting on the thoughts, feelings and reactions that you bring to the session
As a counsellor I have also have undergone therapy and I recognise the importance of developing a trusting, confidential, relationship where we both feel comfortable for you to talk about anything at your own pace.
