Alex completed his BSc Social Welfare (Child & Adolescent Mental Health) degree at the University of Worcester. He went on to earn a sport scholarship at the University of Derby and completed his Master’s degree in Integrative Counselling & Psychotherapy, whilst playing basketball for the Derby Trailblazers. During his time at university and beyond, Alex has worked in various schools across the East Midlands as a Counsellor and in student support roles. He then began work in private practice, still working in schools, with children and young people who face a variety of challenges. Alex is looking forward to starting work at DCB and hopes to become a friendly face the students can talk to, as well as exploring the basketball community in Beijing.
