Charlotte De Kroon
I offer short-term psychological support in the form of one-to-one sessions in Sheffield (S10) and if needed, online as well. I can help you with issues like anxiety, panic or depressive feelings. I am also able to help you with all kinds of life events, like a divorce, a disease you struggle with or difficulties you face at home or work. In my work, I often see people hindered by fixed but not helpful patterns of thinking or acting. Breaking through these can relieve a lot of complaints.
In my sessions I use different techniques to help you the best I can. I'm a fully certified CBT-therapist and besides that I'm accredited in mindfulness and ACT, and I use all these different ways of therapy in an eclectic way.
Training, qualifications & experience
I graduated ages ago in Clinical Psychology at the University of Amsterdam.
After that I have been working in the short-term psychological health-care field for over fifteen years in different settings. I've had my own private practice CdK in the Netherlands until my move to the UK (Summer 2017).
As well as my work experience, I have also followed additional studies, including a training program to qualify as a Cognitive Behavioural Therapist and I am accredited by the EABCT (European Association of Behavioural and Cognitive Therapy). Here in the UK I'm a member of the BPS and MBACP.

My fee is £55 a session (max 60 minutes) to be paid cash for the initial session and in advance by bank transfer for following sessions. I can offer students a discount of 10%. Payment is made in advance by bank payment.
In my work I find it very important that we work as a team on your issues. I have a lot of experience and studies a lot and I still do that (because I love to learn more about psychology and therapy) but of course I don't know everything and can't 'fix' things right away. To change needs time and patience.
I'm very committed and will do everything in my power to be of help! It's important that you feel at ease with me and that you can be honest. And I also need your commitment to be engaged not only during sessions but also in between sessions.
Sometimes it's more convenient to meet each other online. It might seem strange but
online therapy has many advantages, like you don't have to leave your home. All you need is a high-speed Wi-Fi connection and a tablet, laptop or desktop computer. We'll use Zoom, an easy and reliable cloud platform for video and audio conferencing in a secure environment.
The fee for online session (50-60 mins) is the same, £55 to be paid in advance.
