Yok Knight (pronounced Yoke) works from an attachment perspective, with the understanding that our past and present relationships significantly impact our sense of self and well-being. Through this process, many clients come to see themselves and their relationships in a new light, which makes all the difference.
She has experience working with clients dealing with anxiety and depression arising from trauma, cultural expectations, relationship and boundary difficulties, andoverwhelming stress. Because of her attachment perspective, she loves working with couples. She helps them move toward emotional connection and a deeper understanding of their individual needs and the needs of their partner.
Clients appreciate her calming nature, gentle approach, and use of humour. She honours the goals that her clients bring to therapy and supports them in building their strengths and resilience to foster long-term change.
She has a Master’s degree in Counselling Psychology. Her main therapeutic frameworks are Trauma Informed Therapy (including an understanding of parts work and how trauma affects the body), Emotionally Focused Therapy, and EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing).
She is a Canadian-born Chinese daughter of immigrants, and loves making music with her husband and daughters. She is accepting new clients, meeting at 200-569 Academy Rd and online.
