Dr Chloe's Mission
Dr Chloe's mission is to raise awareness about how deteriorating Mental Health impacts us physiologically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually.
Dr Chloe offers her expertise on how to overcome and live in the face of trauma, loss, depression & angst and is dedicated to sharing tips, guidance and therapeutic advice to heal and get out of chronic "survival mode."
Recovery is possible when we stand strong in our purpose and we accept that everything about our life has been part of a greater unfolding story we need to reframe.
We learn, one step at a time, to expand our awareness through reflection & therapeutic tools to hold our past differently, to let go of what doesn't belong to us, to process what has hurt us, to re-author our own story with love, contentment, peace and understanding and to show up with respect and care for our potential, our health, our communities and our work.
Dr Chloe's Vision
Dr Chloe's vision is about de-stigmatising Mental Health and bringing like minded people together to talk safely and openly about the human condition, loss, and the trauma of grief.
So much of poor Mental Health happens because people get overwhelmed by a dis-regulated nervous system, constantly in "survival mode" and caught up in both physiological and psychological stress. The body holds so much trauma and tension when it is stuck in survival mode and recovery is all about observing oneself fully and embracing growth from within.
We cant change what sits outside of us. But we can change how we respond and change is always evolving within us.
Learning to navigate mental health is a process and good therapy means you are heard, validated, acknowledged, empathised with and supported to process all of your emotions (good and bad) in a safe space that allows for destructive unconscious beliefs to be revealed and for choices to be explored without judgements and control.
