Dr Rachael Gregory
Chartered Clinical Psychologist
Consultant Placeholder 360X246

Dr Rachel Gregory

Dr Rachel Gregory is a chartered clinical psychologist and lead psychologist who joined Priory Group in January 2015. Dr Gregory’s main role was originally based at Southampton Priory where she continues to work on the child and adolescent mental health services (CAMHS) inpatient ward. More recently, Dr Gregory has joined Southampton Wellbeing Centre and continues to mainly see young people and their families but also supports adults who have experienced trauma.

Dr Gregory will start by seeing young people and their families for an initial psychological therapy assessment that will then lead to a full formulation of the presenting difficulties.  This formulation is the initial collaborative understanding that Dr Gregory and the client have identified as leading to current difficulties. This then guides the psychological therapy that can then be considered most helpful for the individual and/or family.  This might include trauma focussed therapy, support with self-harming behaviours, anxiety and low mood. Dr Gregory has a keen interest in supporting clients who struggle with emotional dysregulation, managing relationships and coping with distress using dialectical behaviour therapy (DBT) informed work, mentalization-based therapy (MBT-A), eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR), cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) and integrating these with family work where helpful.

Dr Gregory is also part of a multidisciplinary team who can offer neurodevelopmental and cognitive assessments for young people.  This might include comprehensive assessments for attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), autism spectrum condition (ASC), and learning difficulties. Dr Gregory is also a clinical supervisor and provides supervisory support to other health professionals within Priory group.

Dr Gregory is a chartered member of the British Psychological Society (BPS) and is Health Care Professionals (HCPC) registered.


Dr Gregory graduated from University College London in 1999 with a Bachelor of Science degree in Psychology.  She then worked in human resources and obtained a Postgraduate Diploma in Human Resource Management in 2001 before later choosing to return to a career in clinical psychology.

Dr Gregory has always had a keen interest in psychology and particularly mental health and clinical psychology.  In 2007 Dr Gregory commenced her clinical psychology doctoral training and qualified as a clinical psychologist in 2011. This entitled Dr Gregory to obtain full membership to the British Psychological Society as a chartered clinical psychologist.  Since qualifying, Dr Gregory has worked within the NHS and abroad before commencing employment with priory Group.

Research interests

Dr Gregory is interested in research relating to understanding self-harm in adolescents and inpatient work with young people.

As a clinical psychologist I aim to provide evidence-based treatment integrating various psychological models to suit the individual needs of the person or family I am working with.  My hope is to always provide a safe place to guide people to work towards their own therapeutic goals that feel realistic and achievable.

I always aim to provide a high quality, individual service to everyone I see and I am fortunate to have a wealth of experience to assist me in giving up-to-date, evidence-based care. I also regularly seek feedback from clients, young people and families that I treat so that I can continue to enhance my practice and facilitate the best possible outcomes for everyone who seeks my support.
