Dr Chloe Paidoussis-Mitchell CPsychol, AFBPsS
Dr Chloe is all about helping people overcome Mental Health challenges and is committed to doing what she can to make the world a more empathic and compassionate place.
She offers her clients a personal prescription of Holistic Psychological Therapeutic care to reduce stress, deactivate fight or flight systems that lock us into "survival mode" and find meaningful connection to a true & authentic self. Dr Chloe helps her clients anchor their recovery in personal meaning, purpose and authentic happiness to take positive action for long term health.
Mental Health can deteriorate for anyone, at any time, irrespective of class, gender, nationality or professional standing.
DR CHLOE'S APPROACH
Central to her method is a "whole of me" approach which looks at how a client's mental health has deteriorated in response to their environment and understanding how mindset, attitude, living conditions, social conditions, physical health and sources of emotional support contribute to her client's personal lived experience of mental ill health.
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.
"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. "
