Dr Chloe Paidoussis-Mitchell CPsychol, AFBPsS
Experience You Can Count On
Dr Chloe is a leading UK based Chartered Counselling Psychologist & Mental Health at Work Consultant, working with clients from all over the world to help them evolve
Mental Health & embrace a life of Wellbeing.
She empowers her clients with her pioneering Psycho-Holistic approach, helping them grow beyond their personal circumstances, realising their psychological
and mental health potential.
Central to her Psycho-Holistic approach is the appreciation that mind-body-soul-spirit connections on a the four Existential Dimensions (personal, social, physical and spiritual) influence psychological and physical health.
This approach explores how unconscious perceptions & beliefs impact a client's relationship with their inner self and with their physical, social and spiritual realms and engages the client in a deep exploration of what has contributed to their deteriorating mental health symptoms, how to recover from these, how to embrace an authentic and purposeful way of being in the face of personal histories and how to grow in spirit and resilience.
We all become what we think and Psycho-Holistic therapy brings about huge personal transformation by expanding awareness, deepening purpose and helping clients
re-author their lives!
Her approach is informed by her firm belief that Mental Health is disturbed when we lack psychological safety and can deteriorate when we have lived too long with the impossible burden of disconnection, abuse, neglect, trauma, loss, isolation, alienation and stress. There is much research which shows us that trauma of any kind, if unprocessed, can start to leak out as Anxiety, Depression, Stress Related Disorders, Addictions and other serious Mental Health issues.
Over the last 2 decades Dr Chloe has helped thousands of people connect with their capacity to foster Mental Health and heal the pain they have internalised and swallowed in the pursuit of survival.
"Although we can't control unpredictable life events and the actions of others, we can control how we respond, what we do to pursue meaning in our life and how we keep evolving mentally, physically, socially and spiritually. "
Dr Chloe offers online one to one psycho-holistic integrative therapy (informed by Existential Philosophy & Humanistic Psychology).
Dr Chloe fundamentally believes that trauma, loss and distressing life events although devastating and painful don't need to be catastrophic. With the right support, people can overcome unthinkable pain. So much is about the handling, the self care, self compassion and the sort of support that is available. Dr Chloe can help you navigate through sadness, and hopelessness and knows that there is an incredible whoosh of energy that comes from encountering suffering and finding a meaningful way to keep on going in the face of emotional and mental pain which is empowering.

About Dr Chloe
Dr Chloe's beliefs
A core value for Dr Chloe is the belief that life is fulfilling when we can experience it as meaningful and purposeful. Even in the depths of horror, human beings have the capacity to show immense courage, dignity and love. Recovery from Mental Health conditions pivots on the capacity for reflection, openness to experience oneself as meaningful and to that connection with personal deep lived experience to mobilise and release those emotions that have been buried, compartmentalised in avoidance and that have generated illness and stress.
Dr Chloe knows that a reflective positive mindset can be taught and when we learn how to tune in to our internal emotional worlds, beliefs and attitudes we can re-frame them to build a life that makes sense, that allows us to authentically express who we are and make decisions the move us forward and through stuckness and pain.
