Dr Aileen Alleyne

Dr Aileen Alleyne is a UKCP registered psychodynamic psychotherapist, clinical supervisor and organisational consultant. In addition to running her private practice in East Sussex and South East London, she is a visiting lecturer at several training institutions and a consultant addressing issues of race and cultural diversity within workplace settings, such as the NHS, Social Services, Education and the Police Services.

Her clinical research, examining black workers’ experiences in three institutional settings, makes a significant contribution to the discourse on race. Highlighting the concept of ‘the internal oppressor’, it offers ways of deepening understanding of black psychological reactions to the negative impact of racism.

Aileen is the author of several book chapters and journal papers exploring themes on black/white dynamics, shame and identity wounding, and working with issues of Difference and Diversity in the workplace. She is currently writing her first book on Trans/ Intergenerational Trauma, to be published at the end of 2021.
