Chloe Chapman, Art Psychotherapist and EMDR therapist (HCPC and BAAT registered)
Welcome and thank you for visiting my page. I am sorry if you or someone you care for is finding life difficult at the moment. Choosing a therapist can be a daunting task, but I aim to make this as straightforward as possible by clearly explaining my approach to therapy, how it can improve mental health and what it involves.
I believe that the therapeutic relationship should be one of mutual respect and I work hard to create an atmosphere where you will feel safe to express how you are feeling. I work psychodynamically, which means that I explore conscious and unconscious feelings, your past experience and relationships and how they may be influencing your life today. When working with trauma, I ground a person in the present, to ensure they feel safe and not overwhelmed by looking at the past.
Training, qualifications & experience
I am an art psychotherapist and Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) therapist working in Brighton, London and the South East. I hold a Masters degree in Art Psychotherapy from The University of Roehampton. I am accredited by the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC) a full member of The British Association of Art Therapists (BAAT), and a registered member of the EMDR Association UK & Ireland.
I offer both short and long term therapy to adults, children, adolescents and groups. I work with a wide range of issues including depression, anxiety, attachment, trauma, ADHD, autism and self-harm, as well as sexual, emotional and physical abuse.
I have worked in the NHS and for numerous mental health charities across London and the South East. My experience includes Brighton and Hove CAMHS, Westminster MIND and Sussex NHS partnership. Post-qualification I worked for Brighton-based charity for Young Oasis for three years, with children affected by familial substance misuse. Here I developed the Young Women's Therapy service, serving vulnerable 18-25 year olds. I have 8 years’ experience working therapeutically with children, adolescents and adults. Prior to training as a psychotherapist I worked for five years as a case worker for disadvantaged young people, informing my understanding of the challenges facing them today.
I currently work in private practice in Hanover. I am also a Mental Health Specialist for FosterCareUK, providing therapy to children and supervision to carers in the Sussex region as part as a multidisciplinary team. I also work with East Sussex Adoption Support Fund.
