Most of her work over the past two years has focused on developmental trauma. The families who she supports have often experienced complex emotional, relational and developmental difficulties, often resulting in complex needs and risks. She is committed to working as part of a multidisciplinary team, because she believes that it acknowledges the multi-faceted influences upon a client’s life and provides the greatest support to families.
Alli’s interventions may involve working with parents/carers independently, individual children/ young people or shared therapy sessions between all members of the family. At Beacon House Alli specialises in working with children who are adopted or those cared for by a special guardian.
Alli’s style of working is client-led, with therapeutic offerings including, play, sand tray, art and clay therapies, according to the individual’s interests. She will also often include Cognitive Behaviour Therapy activities, which may involve agreed meaningful homework tasks for either the individual or the family to consider between sessions.
