About Chloe Swinton in Norwich
I am described as warm, creative, empathetic and grounded. A lover of animals and the natural world. I work holistically with the mind, body and spirit; recognising they are connected. I am fascinated by the mind and becoming a master of it; using visualisations and the power of intentions; in energy and how emotions can manifest in the body, throwing us out of balance; and how vibrational sound physiologically changes the body and alters consciousness, inducing healing. How nature can be transformative.
Background and experience
For over 20 years I have supported a wide range of people of all ages and backgrounds, and with a variety of issues. I have had roles in various capacities in local and national charities, such as Missing People, Phoenix Counselling & Psychotherapy Service, Kids Company, Norwich Mind, Norfolk Family Carers, Leeway and Age UK Norfolk. I previously Co-Founded The Caring Space offering low-cost carers counselling in Norfolk, and ran the therapeutic drumming group drumNorwich for three years.
Having supported many people with ambiguous loss (including at Missing People for 10 years) and recognising a vital need for more support and awareness across the country, I founded Ambiguous Loss UK. I run the Ambiguous Loss Support Group on Facebook. I'm currently writing a self-help style book and working on training counsellors and therapists in the UK on understanding ambiguous loss.
In 2017, I became a Dementia Friend, and have a good understanding of dementia and the impact on loved ones. I'm also one of Norfolk's Domestic Abuse Champions; recognising and supporting people affected by domestic abuse. In 2020, I registered as a Time To Change Champion and trained as a Wellbeing Service Community Champion to help combat stigma around mental health.
I have professional indemnity and public liability insurance, and hold a current Enhanced DBS Certificate. I am a registered member of the professional body; the British Association for Counselling and Psychology (BACP).
I feel very appreciative for the time with Chloë. She made some fascinating observations and asked thought provoking questions. She was non-judgemental and accepting of feelings and the situation, asking for ideas about solutions from my own inner wisdom. Definitely a real asset and credit to Norfolk Carers Support Counselling Service. - PG
