Dr Chloe's Mission
Dr Chloe's mission is to hold compassionate space for people who are suffering.
Dr Chloe hopes to spread awareness and offer her expert guidance to help those navigating distressing & devastating life events to heal and get out of existing in "survival mode."
In all her work, Dr Chloe holds space to reflect, to share, to anchor and to rediscover a purposeful way to embrace life again - fearlessly being our authentic self
Recovery is possible when we discover how to be unconditionally loving with ourself, we hold awareness about how we may get out of survival mode, we end the negative loops, we stand strong in our purpose and we accept that everything about our life has been part of a greater unfolding story we get to author.
Recovery is personal and subjective but certainly possible. Nobody needs to exist in constant fear, exhausting by chronic anxiety and heavily and chronically medicated.
Dr Chloe is invited by the Guardian to run a masterclass on Grief and Loss on 5th October 29022. To join or learn more clink on the button below.
Dr Chloe's Vision
Dr Chloe's vision is about de-stigmatising Mental Health and bringing like minded people together to talk fearlessly about the human condition, about what loss, trauma and distress is like and share understanding of how compassion, unconditional self love and meaning can help the world become a more empathic compassionate place.
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 acute 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.
