Alliance Psychological Services (formerly PACT) has been delivering services since 1999 and was incorporated as a Limited Company in 2004. Initially working across a number of Stockton GP practices, delivering primary care counselling services, our first workplace contracts were awarded to us in 2003 when we started delivering employee support services which now extend across the North East. In 2005 we began to offer our very first services to children and young people. From 2007 our involvement with the national Improving Access to Psychological Therapies (IAPT) programme meant our services grew significantly across Teesside. The award of Targeted Mental Health in Schools (TaMHS) Contracts enabled us to extend the delivery of support to children and families in schools across Stockton.
We are now approved to deliver primary care psychological therapy services across Teesside on behalf of the NHS, work in over 60 primary schools, secondary schools and academies and have a portfolio of contracts for Workplace Services covering Local Authorities, NHS Foundation Trusts and a range of private and charitable organisations.
In 2014-15 we provided services for over 6000 children, young people and adults
Our business has more than doubled in the past 3 years and we expect this to continue as our services expand and develop.
We are now one of the largest providers of Psychological Therapy Services across Teesside, with 2 Directors who remain practicing therapists and who employ over 100 staff.
