Mount, who was brought into the first team by manager Frank Lampard after working with him at Derby last season, says that he's matured as a player and as a person since returning to South West London.
"There's been ups and downs, but the main thing for me coming out of this season is how much I've learnt and grown as a player, on and off the pitch," said Mount.
"Also how much I've learnt playing against some of the best players in the world. It's my first season in the Premier League and, as a boy, I dreamt of playing in the Premier League.
"For me to have my first season, make loads of debuts and score some goals has meant so much to me."
Chelsea take on Aston Villa on their first game back, live on Sky Sports, with the Blues looking to solidify their spot in the top four.
Mount scored in the reverse fixture at Stamford Bridge and the 21-year-old says he can't wait to get back playing.
"It's been a long time. It's been quite tough at home, but it'll be brilliant to be back," Mount said.
"We're all raring to go and raring to get the games going again, that's what we love doing. Obviously starting training, going through the phases, it's been really good. I'm very excited to be back."
