You deserve the highest quality mental health care for whatever challenges you’re facing. I provide holistic, psychological therapy and life coaching that furthers your development and growth. With a specialism in trauma, I aid my clients’ recovery from their experiences. I help my clients realise, achieve, and even surpass their identified goals. I want to help you reach your fullest possible potential and recognise your values and your strengths. My clients feel seen and heard by someone who genuinely cares and listens. My goal is to get to the root of your challenges and work in-depth to resolve them with lasting impact.

I work collaboratively with you in our sessions. Everyone is different and deserves a slightly different treatment plan to realise their highest capabilities and meet their unique needs. I use a value-driven, in-depth holistic approach customised to you. I draw upon a variety of different therapeutic interventions and provide a listening ear.

I’m committed to helping you develop lifelong growth, self-development, and a sense of accomplishment. I bring compassion, authenticity, and professionalism to my work. My goal is for you to walk out of our sessions with a greater sense of clarity and a realisation of what you can achieve to reach your fullest potential.

Further information

The very premise of ‘Elevate Psychology’, our primary social media presence, is that psychological theory, evidence and knowledge are not just beneficial to those who struggle with mental health issues.   In the case of life coaching, it can be used to further enhance the lives of those who are already functioning relatively well but aspire for change.

Perhaps there are goals you wish to achieve but feel unsure where to start, how to get motivated, or have doubts. It is possible you do not feel entirely content in your life, but struggle to know what it is that you truly want. Research and experience tell us that simply having someone to hold you accountable leaves you significantly more likely to achieve your goals and improve your life. As psychological experts we are best equipped to provide you with this support, to help you in recognising and achieving your fullest potential.

Coaching starts with an in-depth assessment. This is typically for 2 sessions where relevant information is gathered in relation to different aspects of your life. Goals are collaboratively created, and the appropriate style of coaching approach is also agreed upon.

Working with a Psychologist means that we can draw upon a number of evidence-based psychological coaching models. These can be customised to meet the needs of each individual client. This is a distinct benefit of working with ourselves.

At present life coaching is a saturated field, with an unprotected title, which can leave members of the public vulnerable to unwarranted claims of expertise in coaching from some who lack both the experience and appropriate training. You can be assured in the knowledge that with Dr Stone Elevate you are working with a fully qualified psychological specialist, who is educated to Doctoral standard. Therefore our service offers peace of mind in working with a Psychologist who is HCPC registered, chartered by the British Psychological Society, a BPS member of the special group in Coaching Psychology, and named on the official BPS register for Coaching Psychologists.

Psychological models commonly used in life coaching can vary from– Solution Focussed, Humanistic model working with the self-actualising tendency, Positive Psychology, Acceptance and Commitment (ACT) model, Cognitive Behavioural (CBT) and motivational interviewing.

Dr Clare Stone is also registered with Life Coach Directory.
