Chloe’s work is based on her strong belief in the power of CBT to bring about lasting and meaningful changes to people’s lives. She is a compassionate, warm and collaborative psychologist who aims not only to achieve a reduction in symptoms in those she treats, but also to help people move towards their goals and a more positive future.
Chloe is a highly skilled and experienced clinician; she has been practising as a qualified clinical psychologist for ten years and working within adult mental health services for eighteen years. Chloe completed her master’s and doctorate degrees at the Institute of Psychiatry, Psychology and Neuroscience (IoPPN), Kings College London. She has completed further specialist training in Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT), also at the IoPPN. She is accredited with the BABCP reflecting her clinical skill and commitment to attending regular supervision and continued training. Chloe continues to work within the NHS and is a senior psychologist at the Centre for Anxiety Disorders and Trauma in London, a highly specialist service for the treatment of anxiety disorders and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). Chloe is an experienced supervisor and enjoys teaching and training other therapists, most recently teaching on the doctorate course in Clinical Psychology at the IoPPN.
Chloe has expertise in treating the range of anxiety disorders including obsessive compulsive disorder, PTSD, generalised anxiety disorder, panic disorder, social phobia, health anxiety and phobias. She is particularly interested in developing new treatments for emetophobia and for worry. She is aware that many people have experienced difficulties for a considerable time before seeking treatment and that making a change can feel overwhelming at times. She therefore plays an active role in therapy, often accompanying individuals outside the therapy room to support them to seek out opportunities to practise new skills and increase their confidence.
