Ali is a psychologist who is interested in learning from her clients about how to best support them. She believes in the importance of working collaboratively with clients, to figure out the best ways to improve their mental health. Ali has experience in working with a variety of mental health concerns, including depression and anxiety, the impact of trauma, psychosis, and personality disorders. She also has a special interest in working with adult women with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) to address mental health issues they may be experiencing, such as depression, anxiety, and traumatic stress. Ali is an LGBTQI+ friendly therapist.
Ali draws on a range of evidence-based therapeutic models to inform an individualised approach to therapy for each client. These therapeutic approaches include psychodynamic psychotherapy, schema therapy, dialectical behaviour therapy and cognitive-behavioural therapy.
Outside of her time at the Centre for Clinical Psychology, Ali also works in a public mental health service for young people with serious mental health concerns, and conducts research around family relationships and family therapy. Ali is particularly interested in how family relationships can put us on a path toward ways of thinking, feeling and connecting with others that might be related to our mental health.
