Biography – Dr Alison Bocquée

 

Alison has a particular interest in working with young clients, and is passionate about supporting young people and their families to develop the skills to make sustainable, lasting change and reach their true potential and thrive. In her work with young people this is achieved by Alison liaising with the relevant stakeholders (such as parent/s, school personnel, and other health professionals) to ensure collaboration to facilitate change.

 

Alison’s therapeutic approach is compassionate and collaborative and she draws upon evidence-based treatments, including cognitive-behaviour therapy, acceptance and commitment therapy, mindfulness, play-based and attachment, to develop and deliver an individualised intervention.

 

Alison also is passionate about supporting the development of other clinical psychologists through the provision of clinical supervision.
