Do you feel like you are finding it hard to cope with life ups and downs? Experiencing relationship issues, anxiety or family problems? Do you feel that sometimes life can feel out of control and that you are not being heard? Would you like the support to discover your true self?
I have substantial experienced as a BACP accredited and registered humanistic counsellor and psychotherapist.
I am committed to supporting people to help themselves to become happier in their own lives. I have over 20 years experience working with people in a variety of settings in personal development, counselling and therapy. I offer a safe, boundaried and confidential environment, where clients will not be judged or criticised and will feel able to freely share their thoughts and feelings.
I believe that together we can build a trusting, open and honest relationship which will allow you the space to talk, be heard and work through problems you maybe facing, past or present. I offer my clients a safe space to explore themselves in a non-judgemental, caring and empathic setting.
I have substantial experience working with children and young people, having managed counselling projects in both primary and secondary schools. As such I am available to offer sessions to children and young people in schools.

"My journey with Chloe was a learning curve. When I first met her I was a different person. I was going through a really tough time in my life. I needed someone like Chloe. She was a person I could trust, I never found it easy to open up to anyone as much as I opened up to her. Chloe provided me with a safe, warm and non-judgemental space. She really changed my life! I feel like I found myself again and I am not the woman I was a year ago. I started to live more in the moment, appreciate things I have, value myself, I became a braver person and don't feel anxious when I look into my future plans. Thanks to Chloe I've learnt how to love myself again. Life is exciting now! Thank you Chloe :)"
"Chloe helped me to see my situation in a different, more positive light. She gave me a safe place to explore my problems which I valued very highly."
"I saw Chloe for a number of months during a very difficult time in my life - she instantly made me feel relaxed, that I mattered and was important. Chloe made me realise my fears, worries and challenges during these harder times were genuine and it was okay to feel overwhelmed. After each session I left feeling a stronger, more positive me. Highly recommend."
"I met with Chloe when my family experienced a trauma, one of those things that you believe only happen to other people. My appointments with Chloe provided me with a safe haven, a place to gain perspective. Chloe didn't make me feel like mine was just another story, the strength of the sessions lay in Chloes ability to empathise. Each time I left the session and opened the door back into the world I had only left an hour earlier, I felt that I had a fighting chance of getting through. Nothing will stop dreadful and unfair things happening but some people can help you find a way to have faith in your ability to keep going. Thanks Chloe".
