About Us

Dr. Alex Gregory

Educational Psychologist and NME Trainer

Alex has 10 years of full-time experience working within the educational field, including 6 years within Local Authority Educational Psychology Services. Prior to undertaking doctoral psychology training, Alex worked as a qualified teacher in both mainstream secondary and specialist schools, as well as an Assistant Psychologist. As an EP, Alex applies psychology to education through consultation, assessment, intervention, training and research.

Alex has a specialist interest in the area of developmental trauma. This includes her role within Sussex Psychology as an NME Trainer, after completing the Neurosequential Model in Education Trainers Programme with the ChildTrauma Academy in America. Alex is especially interested in working within specialist social, emotional and mental health (SEMH) settings, particularly with children and young people who have been excluded from mainstream schools, and children and young people with care-experiences. For over three years, Alex has volunteered as an Independent Visitor for a child looked after within the care system.

Stemming from her own lived experiences as a sibling to someone with complex needs, Alex is also passionate about family support work, particularly support for siblings of children with additional needs. Alex has attended the Siblings Group Leader Training Course and runs events (talks and workshops) for siblings and their families. Her doctoral thesis explored the school outcomes and experiences of adolescent siblings of children with autism, and Alex continues to co-supervise sibling research projects.

Alex is also passionate about positive psychology (aka the science of happiness) to promote student, staff and family wellbeing, such as the use of mindfulness, gratitude, random acts of kindness, and self-compassion. At an individual level, Alex advocates person-centred planning approaches (e.g. PATHs, MAPs, circle of adults and solution circles) that put young people at the heart of decision-making about their future. Alex is also keen to use the PATH process at a systemic level to promote organisational change.

Alex is a fully registered Chartered Educational Psychologist with the Health and Care Professionals Council (HCPC).
