Dr Alice Laskey is a Consultant Clinical Psychologist and Director of The Psychology Partnership. She aspires to empower people to make changes that impact positively on their relationship with themselves and with the world around them. As a clinical psychologist she draws from 2 decades of professional experience and skills gained through working with people across the lifespan in the NHS and private practice. She uses a wide variety of psychological approaches that can help people to move through the after effects of traumatic experiences, both old and new, and navigate through the multitude of transitions in life.
As a creative Alice is passionate about nurturing new ways of working that bridge disciplines and enable information to be shared more widely, raise awareness and resilience. This may for example be through writing books, developing new workshops or even creating a product. Whatever medium she employs the focus remains on working with our own internal and external ecology and the interplay between the two. Her work primarily focuses around women, children and families. In particular she works alongside women exploring their own ways to harness their feminine power and realize it in their own lives and in the systems around them.
As a facilitator and change maker she is drawn to work in different ways that support systems, whether this be within our own internal landscape or the many different systems to which we belong. In particular her work focuses on our relationship with the natural environment and how to empower ourselves as environmental guardians and inspire the future generation of change makers.
Alice believes in contributing positively to communities and in the benefits of sharing good quality information across all levels of a system. Her desire to support the growing number of psychologists working independently led her to create the Networking Community of Psychologists in Independent Practice (NCPIP) which enabled registered psychologists to come together as a supportive and informative network.
Alice has a keen background in research and training and has published research in the fields of psychosis, ptsd, cognitive therapies and dementia care services. She is author of the best-selling book, How to Become A Clinical Psychologist: Getting Your Foot in the Door. She has served as an examiner for the Clinical Psychology Doctorate Programme at the University of Lancaster and has served as a research reviewer for the Association of Cognitive Analytic Therapy.
Alice has achieved a number of additional professional qualifications alongside her core Clinical Psychology training that enable her to integrate a number of therapeutic approaches in her work. She is particularly interested in integrating her professional training from models such as Cognitive Analytic Therapy and Mindfulness. She is currently undergoing additional training in Systemic Family Constellations with the Centre for Systemic Constellations.
