Dr Chloe's Mission
Dr Chloe's mission is to share tools, and strategies to raise awareness to improve Mental Health and Wellbeing.
Mind, body, heart and spirit are inter-connected and 'trauma' is what happens inside of us, not what happens outside of us.
People navigating difficult mental health symptoms want to live happy and fulfilling lives and they can, when they tune into their psyche's capacity for unconditional love,.
Recovery takes time. There are no quick fixes. But it is possible, to observe yourself and heal.
Dr Chloe's Vision
Dr Chloe's vision is to be an impactful psychologist, helping people shift into Wellbeing and Health.
Dr Chloe's is passionate about challenging the medicalising of human suffering and offers a therapy space, which focuses on healing people by searching for personal agency, meaning, purpose and growth.
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.
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.
