Gregorio has received his Clinical Psychology doctorate at Ohio University in the US and has over 15 years experience of supporting children and young people around the world in a variety of healthcare settings, including NHS children’s services, specialist schools and charitable organisations in the US and Europe.
Greg works with children aged 4+ and their families. His therapeutic approach incorporates a wealth of evidence-based models including Systemic Family Therapy, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), trauma-based CBT, exposure therapy, Solution Focused Brief Therapy, Narrative Therapy, Reinforcement Based Treatment (RBT), Attachment, Regulation and Competency (ARC) approach and Motivational Interviewing. He believes that therapy works best when three core elements are achieved: a strong therapeutic relationship, proven techniques wielded by a skilled clinician, and a supportive home and community environment.
As well as working privately at Fernwood Clinic, Greg currently works as a Clinical Psychologist at Westminster Department of Children’s Services, managing an Intensive Support Team and providing direct therapeutic support to families and children.
