Charlotte de Kroon

My name is Charlotte, I’m Dutch and I live with my family in Sheffield since 2017. I graduated in Clinical Psychology from the University of Amsterdam in 1996 and after that I qualified myself in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) Mindfulness and ACT (Acceptance and Commitment Therapy). 

I have been working in the short-term psychological health-care field for over 15 years, and have gained a great deal of invaluable experience working with people with a wide diversity of problems.

Problems I can help you with are:

All kinds of anxiety (panic, social phobia, OCD, excessive worrying)

Depression, low self esteem

Stress symptoms

Difficulty sleeping, focusing, committing…I also work with people who are struggling with certain life events for example their divorce (blended families), bereavement or having to deal with a serious disease like cancer.

What do I offer?
I always start with an initial interview/ assessment for 1 hour. After this session we decide whether we will work together and if yes, what we will do. I want to work on a team basis, so it’s you and me working together on your problems. I will ask you to commit and do things at home in between sessions. 

During my work I mostly use all techniques that I find helpful for you so I don’t stick to protocols. I use:

CBT In brief, CBT looks at how we think and feel. You and me work together in noticing which of your thoughts or behaviors are unhelpful for you, and discussing whether the thoughts and behaviors could be changed.

Mindfulness is a specific way of paying attention to what is happening in our lives in the present moment, as it truly is. Of course it won’t eliminate life’s pressures – but with practice it can help you take notice of (and hopefully stop) negative, habitual reactions to everyday stress or specific problems. The most common way this technique is practiced is through mindfulness meditation.

ACT is all about accepting what is out of your personal control, and committing to action that improves and enriches your life. The aim of ACT is to maximise human potential for a rich, full and meaningful life.

Registration/Accreditation MBACP, BPS and accredited by the EABCT (European Association for Behavioural and Cognitive Therapy). 

Fees My fee is £60 a session (max 60 minutes) to be paid cash for the initial session and in advance by bank transfer for following sessions. If needed concessions are available, please contact me to discuss.

 What former clients say:

“I have learned how to understand and challenge my anxieties. I have learned how to cope and I feel refreshed since attending our sessions”.

“I found my sessions with Charlotte, focusing on mindfulness, really helpful. I always left the sessions feeling that I had been understood and that progress had been made. Through regular therapy sessions and meditation using the resources provided by Charlotte, I have noticed a change in the way that I recognise and process my thoughts and emotions. I feel confident that this has created a strong foundation that I can continue to build upon and would highly recommend Charlotte’s services to anyone contemplating therapy”.

“I am very pleased I made the leap and worked with Charlotte to help me manage my stress levels. She equipped me with skills and tools that I didn’t even realise I needed. These newly acquired skills have allowed me to juggle a high-intensity work environment alongside my responsibilities at home, in a much healthier and productive manner”.
