Chloe Cavanagh

Provisional Psychologist

I'm committed to creating a warm and empathetic therapeutic environment, fostering a safe space for clients to explore their thoughts, emotions, and concerns. I aim to provide a client-centered and evidence-based clinical approach that prioritises individualised care and comprehensive well-being.
