Chloe Hedley, Dip Con MBACP - Therapeutic Counsellor
I have worked with children and adults from different backgrounds independently and within various agency settings across London including ChildLine, Place2Be, The Awareness Centre and Leone Centre. I work with clients, short-term and long-term in West London and online. I also work with Portobello Behavioural Health, as part of a multidisciplinary team.
I work from a bio-psycho-social and spiritual perspective of human development, incorporating a holistic and integrative approach to health and wellbeing.
Working with diverse client groups my post qualification training focusses around relationships and attachment, trauma and (complex) post-traumatic stress including manifestations of such which can often display as addictive behaviours and get diagnosed as personality disorders and mental illness including anxiety and panic.
Embracing the transformative capacity of authentic connection and the power of self-awareness in the fulfilment of human potential, as your therapist, my role is to facilitate the safety of the therapeutic space as an active relationship for insight, healing, empowerment and growth.
We all have in us an innate capacity, drive for wellbeing, optimum health homeostasis and fulfilment. Blocks to this, due to life experiences can mean we become out of balance, stuck and lack the tools to navigate our way through.
'We are born in relationship, nurtured in relationship and educated in relationship. We represent every biological and social relationship of our forebears, as we interact and exist in a consensual domain called 'society' (Robert Rocco Cottone)
After pursuing my curiosity in the role, function and evolution of social behaviour, culture and society, I graduated with a degree in Sociology. Shortly after, I began my counselling training gaining further exposure into the world of human development, relationships and psychological health and wellbeing.
From this foundation, I continue to learn, explore and work with the interconnection between individual health & wellbeing and culture & society.

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.
Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.
All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
