Specialist mental health support for adults experiencing anxiety

Knight Psychology logo

Is your life constantly filled with worry, perhaps you're not even sure why?

Do you have a fear of something that is getting in the way of you living your life?

Does the thought of going out leave you feeling sick?

Do you feel very uncomfortable socialising, shopping, meeting new people or perhaps even talking on the phone?

Has all the 'self-help' you've tried not been that helpful?

Have you been on a waiting list for too long or been told that you "won't get anything on the NHS"?

I want to help you! Did you know that every week in England 6 in 100 people will be diagnosed with 'generalised anxiety disorder'. I know firsthand how hard and tiring it can be to live with anxiety. In 8 years of NHS practice I saw many people like you feeling held back. I can help you develop the tools to live a calmer, more enriched life, just like I did. As a Psychologist I know that therapy can really help.

You might have been told that your fear of heights or spiders was just something to "get over", perhaps even been laughed at. You may have been told that getting very nervous when talking to people was just a sign that you needed to "do it more". Understandably these responses from others often only make us turn away from our struggles and want to hide though it needn't be like this.

As a Clinical Psychologist, I will use both my own experiences of anxiety and professional therapy training to equip you with the tools you need to live the life you deserve.

Immediate support

As an independent Psychologist I am not able to provide immediate or crisis support. If you feel your mental health needs are urgent, such as if you are having thoughts of harming yourself or others, please contact your GP, local mental health helpline, or attend your local A&E department.

About me

Dr Natalie Knight

Anxiety has pushed my buttons for as long as I can remember. I'd study for hours ahead of any exam and fretted over every part of my training to become a Psychologist. These resulted in a need to step away from learning completely, more than once. I'm known to come up with a million ridiculous potential reasons why that friend hasn't yet text me back. I will also avoid snakes at all costs but thankfully here in England that doesn't cause me too many issues! During the really tricky times, despite that fact I can 'speak NHS', I've struggled to find the right help and been left feeling a fraud. I've felt lonely, stuck and helpless and don't want that for you.

I decided to set up Knight Psychology because working for a large organisation like the NHS wasn't allowing me the flexibility nor freedom I knew I needed to stay well. I knew I wanted to help people like you and me, people who from the outside appear to be functioning reasonably well, we might have jobs, families, friends, our homes are clean (ish!), but functioning doesn't mean we aren't struggling, and it certainly doesn't mean we are thriving.

I want you to thrive.

I'm a Mum of one who wanted a work life balance that would allow me to do the school run and show up for assembly. I know how important these things are which is why I also offer evening and weekend appointments. I love being outside, if I'm struggling with a big feeling, or can't solve a problem, I'll often go for a walk. I can offer walk & talk sessions out and about in nature, alongside in person and online therapy.

Therapy FAQs

For someone to call themself a Clinical Psychologist they must have completed a very high level of training known as a Doctorate in Clinical Psychology. This is a three year course which someone typically does after completing a first degree in Psychology and then acquiring 2-3 years of working experience. A Clinical Psychologist will also be registered with the Health Care Professional's Council (HCPC) which makes sure we are all working to an expected standard and keeping the public safe.

A Clinical Psychologist will use their professional training, experience, and the information we get from research studies on what works best, to support you. We can help you understand why you might be having the difficulties you are, and work with you to make changes.

A lot of the time these two words are used interchangeably to refer to the same thing - talking therapies, there are however some subtle differences. In counselling, a person is typically given the opportunity to talk through their feelings and difficulties with someone who is trained to listen without being judgemental. Some people find that this is then enough for them to be able to process things and feel better.

Psychological therapy aims to get a thorough understanding of your difficulties and then use established techniques to help you make some changes. In this respect I would say that psychological therapy tends to be more of an active process. You'll be encouraged to try new things and practice these between sessions.

The main types of therapy I work with are Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Graded Exposure, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) and Compassion Focussed Therapy (CFT). Depending on your needs and preferences we may use just one of these, or a combination of the different types. This is known as an 'integrative' approach as is one of the things Clinical Psychologists are trained to do. I'll be writing more on the different types of therapy in a future blog post!

I definitely cannot read your mind! I'm not able to tell what thoughts are going through your head unless you choose to share them with me. Rest assured if you're thinking that my glasses don't suit my face then I'll be blissfully unaware!

As for analysing, I think that depends on what we mean by that word. I certainly won't be making all sorts of wild judgements and inferences about you that are unrelated to what we're talking about. We do however all make judgements about people based on their appearance and body language, such as "They look like a friendly person". In therapy, I am paying attention to the ways people talk about things and their body language, but I will be sharing my observations and checking things out with you along the way. I might say something like "it looks like thinking about that makes you feel really happy and alive, you sat up in your seat" and ask you whether I've got that right or not.

Absolutely! I totally understand that for lots of people sitting in a room and talking doesn't feel very comfortable! I love being outdoors and am very happy to offer sessions in green spaces, we can talk and walk at the same time.

For those who do want to meet face to face in a more traditional space, I have a room I use in the centre of Worcester. I also offer online appointments via video call.

This is a really good question to think about and one which I would be wondering myself if I wasn't a Psychologist. When you pay for a session with a Psychologist, you're paying for more than the hour that we spend together. A Psychologist will spend a lot of time thinking about you in between sessions and coming up with the best ways to try and support you. By the time someone becomes a Clinical Psychologist they will have been trained to a high level and amassed a lot of experience, so you're paying for this too. There are also a lot of things a Psychologist will be having to pay for to run their business such as insurances, administrative support and office space.

You may have seen other therapists, counsellors and psychologists charging lesser fees. It's really important that each person charges what is right for them. For me, the fee I charge means that I can support my family without needing to see so many people each week that I end up burnt out, with no time to keep my skills relevant and no space in my head to remember who I'm seeing and what we're working on. It allows me to keep the number of people I'm working with at a level, I can be confident that everyone I work with is getting the very best of me and allows me to keep well too.

Unfortunately, it isn't possible to predict how many sessions a person will need. Once we have met, we can think about a plan which will include an estimated number of sessions. Usually I'll suggest we meet for around six sessions and then have a review.


I offer an initial free, 15 minute phone consultation to all prospective clients. We will use this time to find out more about the support you are looking for, I can tell you more about how I work and answer any questions you may have. We can then decide together whether we are a good fit to work with each other.

Each session is 60 minutes and charged at £120, payable 48 hours in advance. Please see full Business Terms prior to booking.
