Hello, I’m Ali. I am an experienced integrative counsellor working online with short and longer term clients. I offer one-off wellbeing and support sessions for clients who are unable to access regular counselling and require ad hoc emotional support.
Currently I have space on Thursdays - get in touch to find out more.
For more information on how I work have a look at my website www.modern-therapy.uk
I offer online counselling from my base in rural Cambridgeshire. I can help with a variety of issues including anxiety, depression, relationship/family issues, stress management, self-esteem, panic attacks, alcohol/substance issues, trauma, making meaning of life and all it throws at us, and more. I work with individuals locally and internationally.
I come from a person-centred and psychodynamic core training. I use additional approaches/tools to suit each client that I work with, including transpersonal, gestalt, Jungian theory, mindfulness, transactional analysis and motivational interviewing.
I have worked as a counsellor in NHS, university and private healthcare settings, and in prison and community settings as a drugs and alcohol practitioner. I love working in private practice - get in touch if you would like to know availability
I currently co-facilitate Cambridge Psychedelic Integration Circle - a support group for people who have used psychedelics or may do so, to share experiences, and explore, ground and find meaning.

Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.
BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).
Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.
Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.
All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.
Accredited register membership
The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.

I’m an Accredited member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP); a leading professional body for counselling and psychotherapy in the UK and as such, I am required to have regular supervision in order to maintain professional standards of practice.
I abide by the BACP Ethical Framework for Good Practice in Counselling and Psychotherapy and I am therefore subject to the BACP complaints procedure.
I am a member of the Institute of Psychedelic Therapy (IPT)
I am currently completing Supervision with Soul training with Re-Vision (2024)
