Dr Chloe Paidoussis Mitchell has a background in Organisational Psychology, having worked for BBC News and BBC Human Resources as an Organisational Learning and Development Consultant for a number of years. This work allowed her to refine her consultancy and coaching skills and took her into Trauma Specific De-briefing procedures, where she was trained by the MOD to assess PTSD risk for employees who were working in a hostile environment.
It was this OD work which inspired Chloe to pursue a Doctorate Qualification in Counselling Psychology, which she achieved at Regents University in London. Her doctoral dissertation was focused on Trauma and Grief and she has continued to publish work in this field.
As a Counselling Psychologist, Dr Chloe is a visiting Senior Lecturer for a number of Doctoral Programs and she enjoys supervising Doctoral Research Projects – as such supporting and expanding on current thinking in the field of Mental Health. A number of Dr Chloe’s students have successfully published their work, under her guidance.
Dr Chloe is a BPS trained Clinical Supervisor and offers clinical supervision to a number of Counselling Psychologists and Psychotherapists who are interested in working integratively and humanistically.
Most recently, Dr Chloe has been involved in expanding her knowledge in Digital Mental Health and has established herself as an emerging expert in this field.
