Testimonials for Katie Knight - English-speaking counselor in Berlin
"I had never been to see a counsellor before so I feel very lucky to have found Katie and to have had such a positive first-time experience with counselling. The sessions we had brought a great sense of clarity to a time in my life when I was feeling lost and without purpose. I couldn't believe the difference just a few sessions could make to my life so I couldn't recommend speaking with Katie more!"
"Working with you has been one of the most helpful experiences of my life. I have been able to get to know myself way better through your questions and your always gentle advice. I really appreciated the results-driven way you have to empower who is in front of you. I feel like setting weekly goals has really helped me to live therapy like a collection of objectives to achieve in order to feel fulfilled and happy with myself and others.
I would really recommend you to all those who feel like they need guidance in becoming the better version of themselves. I had a vision and you assisted me in translating it into my reality by changing a little bit of me every day.
Thank you a thousand times for the confidence and strength you have been able to instill in me during the time we spent together."
"Katie is a wonderful therapist and really listened and understood my problems. She is great at seeing the situation from a different perspective and gave me helpful insights and advice. She boosted my self esteem and helped me feel better about myself and my problems and gave me great solutions.
She is great with relationship problems, childhood trauma issues, dealing with toxic, negative people, and making big life decisions. I would recommend her and it was a pleasure to talk and see her every visit. She has a warm, inviting office space that you feel comfortable sharing in. She is such a kind and understanding therapist."
"Working with Katie is a refuge, things can become overwhelming at times and the way she interacts and connects with us is really heartwarming and reassuring. The fact that she is very calm has helped me remain calm as well and allowed us to work through anxiety and depression issues. She is kind, empathetic and very resourceful, presenting us with lots of ways and approaches to better reflect, deal and understand the problem(s).
It is not only about finding a therapist who speaks your language (literally) but their approaches and methods, as well as their personalities, influence greatly the direction the treatment goes. For the time we ‘worked’ together I felt better able to grasp at different aspects of what I needed to do to understand and help myself. She has helped more than I expected and I am looking forward to continuing working together! I recommend anyone to try an initial consultation and see for yourselves"
"Working with Katie has helped me see things from many other perspectives and improve my relationships with my partner and others. I felt understood, guided and comfortable to open my heart and be vulnerable. At the end of each session I felt I had accomplished and reached a new understanding."
"Katie is kind, a great listener, and was wonderful to work with. I saw her for a few sessions and she was really helpful in guiding me through the sources of my negative thought patterns. Through her targeted questions I learned how to break down the experiences I was going through and how to frame these learnings to use on a daily basis."
"I was having sessions with Katie for about a year. Katie was able to make me feel so comfortable that I started opening up and soon we could discuss the issues easily. What I liked the most is that Katie did not offer quick-and-easy solutions; instead, she made it possible for me to answer all my questions myself. She literally guided me to the inner compartments of my personality.
I appreciate her very subtle, full of empathy, at the same time precise way of conversation, which made me become more aware of myself, my needs and goals, and the ways to achieve them. After a year, I am more conscious about my inner self, and definitely happier. Thank you very much Katie, it was a wonderful year with you!"
"Katie is truly professional, consistently holding a safe space to explore and make progress: from probing questions to re-framing my ideas, she kept me focused to untangle thoughts and emotions so I could see my challenges clearly and see what I needed to do/ not do to improve my situation."
"The professional, patient and understanding space Katie offers, provided me the tools I was looking for. The many worries I had before the sessions with Katie were processed and dealt with impressively."
"Katie’s approach to our sessions was professional and solutions-focused. She instantly put me at ease and really helped me work through some challenging issues by providing a safe space for me to talk and by giving me actionable tools for me to manage things in the long-term."
"There are times when there is no clear direction and, especially in the time we are in, it is harder to understand where to look for answers. I wasn't sure how to approach this. Katie has honestly listened and has taken the time to guide me to where I wasn't able to look into. Revealing simple ways for me to be here and not elsewhere in my head."
"Looking to improve my confidence as well as reduce my anxiety I set about finding an English-speaking counselor in Berlin and stumbled upon Katie's website. It was important to me to speak to a counselor in my native language so nothing would get lost in translation. With her kind yet pragmatic approach, we went on a journey to discover the things that were holding me back. I feel like a different person now and will be forever grateful to Katie for helping me achieve my goal."
"I was referred to Katie when I was going through some quite difficult times. She helped me to calm down and to be able to reflect on things that for a while had been out of my available perception. If I hadn't gotten help from her, I would probably be dead."
"What drew me to Katie's services was her experience in counselling those with stress and anxiety issues. When I started working with Katie, I was feeling overwhelmed and couldn't find my feet to handle the level of stress. But Katie is an extraordinary professional who will listen to you, give you the right amount of tools to build yourself back up again and will not judge you if you struggle in the process. That's why I highly recommend Katie to my friends."
"By means of a metaphor, I would like to say that Katie Knight was to me like an oasis in the desert: she quenched my need for understanding, support and catharsis. Through the hardships and hard times I experienced, she was the perfect combination of helpfulness, compassion and professionalism. Thanks to her tips and objective perspective, I was able to arrive at different conclusions and solutions that helped me to move on. Above all, she is warm, empathetic and trustworthy. I felt from the very start of the therapy that I was in good hands and that there was hope and optimism about my chances of improvement. I would highly recommend her as a therapist."
"I was experiencing severe stress and emotional burnout when I approached Katie, and she taught me how to adjust my perception of my problems and see a feasible path out of them.
Katie creates a very safe and honest atmosphere - nothing felt too difficult or personal to say, and I left every session feeling a little lighter, no matter how bad things were going in."
"Before meeting Katie I was going thorough a hard time, always tired, always in a bad mood, and honestly not really happy with where I am. And finally, after a lot of thought and hesitation I contacted Katie and I can easily say it was one of the best decision I have ever made. It was never about a magical solution or pill that will fix everything, it was about showing me the tools inside me and how to use them positively and effectively.
Our session were very comfortable and I really felt like I had a safe-space for myself where I can share my feelings and emotions and after every session I felt so much more comfortable about myself. I would like to thank Katie for her time and effort with me and for showing me how to use the tools inside of me to be more positive about my life. I highly recommend Katie to anyone who is feeling tired, anxious or depressed it would be the best decision you have ever made!"
"After putting it off for over 12 months, I finally decided it was time to see a counsellor - I came across Katie's site and decided to take the plunge. I am so glad I did! In our initial consultation, Katie put me at ease immediately, making me feel comfortable and explaining how the process works. Katie's style is to "ask lots of questions" - allowing you to develop your own solutions and imparting a new way of looking at issues.
In my case, this method worked fantastically - in only a couple of sessions with Katie I felt for the first time in several years on top of the issues I was facing, and like a light-bulb had gone off, with regards to how to approach future challenges. Katie has helped restore my energy, dramatically reduced my stress, and simply put: increased my happiness. I can recommend Katie wholeheartedly."
"I’ve enjoyed working with Katie. It's been so refreshing and helpful to me and much preferred to the traditional forms of therapy in which you dig up the past OVER and OVER and OVER again. She helps you to MOVE ON with your life!! In addition, she is very patient and kind and puts you at ease with zero judgment. I’m very grateful to her."
"Katie is a very genuine person, talking with her makes you really feel listened to. It took no time to open up really start working on deeper issues."
"Katie is an amazing therapist that gave us a safe place too talk about our feelings and worries. She helped us keeping our focus on what we love about each other and gave us great tools and guidance, that we also have had use for in our other relationships and for our own personal growth. Today we are very happy together and have had beautiful moments of feeling newly in love again."
"Thank you for helping me through the stressful times earlier this year. Our conversations really were so important to me and helped me find the right path. It meant a lot that you had faith things would turn out well for me, sometimes I just needed to hear that. I'm doing amazing, I've been so happy and fulfilled this summer and I can't remember feeling this good about myself and my choices in a long time. "
