Biography – Dr Alison Bocquée

 

Alison, a Brisbane trained clinical psychologist, has a depth of experience and skill gained from working with individuals across the lifespan in community and hospital (inpatient) government mental health services, disability, and private practice settings over the past 13 years.  Alison has experience and skill working with individuals from infancy to older adulthood who present with a wide range of mental health conditions, developmental conditions, disabilities, and/or difficulty coping with life stressors, as well as with multifaceted difficulties.  Alison also has provided specialist assessment reports for a range of referrers, including legal representation for Family Court of Brisbane and Children’s Court matters, the disability sector, NGOs, WorkCover, employment agencies, self-insurers, schools, and kindergarten settings.

 

Alison prides herself in working collaboratively with key service providers, such as Brisbane based schools and other health professionals, and believes it is generally essential for key members of the individuals support network, such as family members, to be involved in treatment to support change.

 

Whilst not restricting her clinical work to any specific ‘presentation’ or ‘issue’ Alison is particularly passionate about working with children and adolescents with anxiety disorders, sleep disorders, trauma, adjustment disorders, ASD, parenting/family work, and issues that impact on optimal family functioning.
