Hi there, I'm Chloe

FOUNDER |
SYNCHRONY COUNSELLING

I am an experienced, passionate counsellor and have worked as a helping professional for over 15 years. In 2016, I completed a Master of Education in Guidance and Counselling, and now hold the highest level of registration with the Australian Counselling Association. Since graduating, I have continued to advance my education and skills, taking a deep dive into process based therapies like ACT, relationship-based parenting, and mind-body interventions guided by Polyvagal theory. I am also a certified meditation and mindfulness practitioner. 

Before founding Synchrony Counselling, I worked as a high school Guidance Officer ('school counsellor'). In this role, I supported students, families, and staff from all backgrounds and cultures, and was continually challenged to learn and grow alongside them. These varied and complex experiences honed my therapeutic skills and nurtured within me deep feelings of empathy, compassion and the desire to be of service to others.

PASSION & PURPOSE

I am fascinated by human psychology and driven by the desire to understand and alleviate human suffering.  My approach is fundamentally guided by the principles of Acceptance and Commitment Therapy: a highly experiential therapy that teaches you to become aware of unpleasant thoughts and feelings without getting caught up in them, so that you can focus on your values and take positive steps towards creating a rich and meaningful life. 

I feel immensely fortunate to practise my passion with those who trust me to support them through their challenges and triumphs. 

"Get out of your mind and into your life."

- Steven C. Hayes
