Hi all, I’m Ali,
I initially trained as an occupational therapist and have worked in healthcare for 30 years. My specialism is in psychological and emotional wellbeing, having continued with post-graduate training in cognitive behavioural therapy, neuro-linguistic programming and hypnotherapy. My ongoing training is in compassion focussed therapy. My passion is to empower you to achieve the quality of life that you want and equip you with skills to achieve your goals. People tell me that I have an empathetic approach to individual therapy and a dynamic approach to group work.
Following 12 years as a foster carer, 20 years of youth work, running children’s groups and leading youth camps, plus 25 years of leadership and pastoral care, I have gathered a wealth of experiences to equip me to understand others. Now that my children have grown up, I enjoy travelling and creative hobbies. I enjoy cycling, hiking and spontaneous activities with friends and family and generally having fun.
