30 Monument Green, Weybridge, Surrey, KT13 8NA
My name is Cloudette and I am a BABCP fully accredited Cognitive Behavioural Therapist having significant experience with adults and young people treating and improving their mental health. My weekly clinics are held in Weybridge, Surrey (KT13) and I also provide CBT online via Skype and video link.
I have special interests in anxiety and young people with ASD, I can offer brief and long-term therapy.
I can help with:
Historical Internalised Trauma
Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)
Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD)
Adjustment to major life events
Emotional Dysregulation (ED)
It has been a long time ambition of mine to become a Cognitive Behavioural Therapist, so I feel privileged to be in this position. You will find a warm and non-judgemental atmosphere in the clinic; you will also find that your recovery is the focus of all of the sessions.
Because of my experience within adult mental health services and the Child and Adolescent Mental Health services (CAMHS), I can address a wide range of mental health conditions that people (including young people) present with. I have experience and an interest in working with young people who have an Autistic Spectrum Disorder diagnosis.
What I have noticed throughout my career is that anxiety can be crippling and exhausting; people alter their lives in dramatic ways to avoid experiencing that feeling. Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, Social Anxiety, General Anxiety Disorder and Panic Disorder can all be expressions of the way that we try to avoid anxiety because of the worry about the potential consequences of feeling anxious.
For example, if you are feeling stressed at work, imposed on or unappreciated by your managers and / or colleagues this can have a significant impact on all areas of your life. Using CBT can be a useful way of enabling you to manage this situation and help you recover the resilience you once had.
CBT can also help with symptoms of trauma such as flash backs and a heightened sense of threat that can appear for no apparent reason at all.
Working together with CBT we can reduce these distressing symptoms and work towards eliminating them so that you can return to living without that feeling of pending doom.
Young people experience mental health issues too including depression and anxiety; particularly in this age of intrusive social media where their lives can be scrutinised and criticised without mercy. This pressure can make doing regular activities such as going to school or making friends very difficult. I offer a safe place to discuss what is happening in your life and work with you to find some solutions to the problems.
