Practice description

Hello, I’m Chloe.

I have sadly lost count of how many clients I have worked with who have told me they’ve felt unable to open up about their gender and/or sexuality to a previous counsellor. I want this to change and look forward to working with you.

I have over 10 years’ experience supporting LGBTQ+ people in mental health, youth work and counselling.

I am also an Accredited Therapist in Gender, Sexual and Relationship Diversity with Pink Therapy.

Drawing on all my professional experience working with LGBTQ+ clients together with my lived experience as a Queer Woman myself I set up Sussex Rainbow Counselling in 2016 where I specialise in working with gender, sex and relationship diversity.

Therapy qualifications

University of Brighton - Post Graduate Diploma in Humanistic Psychotherapeutic Counselling (Merit)

Academy for Online Counselling & Psychotherapy - General Certificate in Online Counselling and Psychotherapy (Distinction)

Other therapy skills

I also studied an advanced specialist online training in 2018 so was already trained an experienced in delivering online counselling prior to the covid pandemic. My online training covered not just video calls, but also phone, email and instant message counselling. So you have options of how to meet me which many clients find very helpful.

General skills

My experience working with gender and sexuality is rich having worked as an LGBTQ+ youth worker, for an LGBTQ+ counselling service and for an LGBTQ+ mental health organisation before qualifying as a counsellor.
