My name is Dr, Alison Walne and I am a Registered Practitioner Psychologist with the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC). I am also a Chartered Psychologist with the British Psychological Society (BPS) as well as being a BPS Registered Clinical Supervisor. I hold a Post-Graduate Teaching Certificate in Education (PGCE), and have practiced as a Consultant and Senior Psychologist, within many healthcare settings across the UK, including working within the NHS, and for several years, MOD, and a Law Enforcement Agency.

I completed my Doctorate in Psychology at City University, London and previously a Diploma in Psychotherapy and Hypnotherapy at Regents College, London. My teaching and clinical supervision courses were undertaken via the University of Wales.

In addition to the above stated professional experiences, I have worked within Education as a Lecturer, offering training to students on health and social care programmes, those taking A-levels and students who are wishing to enter academia via Access to education programmes. For health professionals, I have provided training and clinical supervision to staff groups which include: Psychological Therapists, General Nurses, Community Psychiatric Nurses, Occupational Therapists, Social Workers, Teachers, Care Staff, and, GPs, in the care and management of Eating Disorders. Collectively, my clinical experiences have given me the opportunity to engage with a diverse range of individuals both professionally and clinically.
During the course of my career, I have had the privilege of meeting Her Majesty the Queen, and also worked in Marbella, Spain, with a high-profile family.
I believe my interpersonal skills and genuinely caring for others through the course of my life and career have been built on a simple philosophy in the process of developing professional and personal relationships. This stems from ‘Humanism’ and the ‘Golden Rule’, ‘Treat people like you would like them to treat you’. I find remaining focused on this principle has helped me naturally support the many different needs of those I work with, and on behalf. To this end, I believe my principles and work/life values helps me endorse a firm commitment to equal opportunities, non-discriminatory practice at all levels, and ultimately, respecting need in a non-judgemental way to help achieve good outcomes for my clients.
