Dr Rachel Jones is a consultant forensic psychiatrist at the Priory Hospital Chelmsford and BMI St Edmunds Hospital. She has a wealth of experience which she combines with evidence-based treatments to help her patients. She aims to provide the best quality of care and does this by listening to her patients' concerns and wishes, and incorporating this into their treatment plan. Dr Jones is able to treat a wide range of disorders in adults (aged 18-65 years) including schizophrenia, bipolar, anxiety, PTSD, ADHD, and substance misuse. She works alongside psychological therapists to give her patients comprehensive treatment.
Dr Jones qualified in 1993 from The University of London before working in the NHS at West Suffolk Hospital, and then the John Howard Secure Hospital where she treated patients with conditions such as mental illness, personality disorders, and drug/alcohol misuse. She has expertise in serious violent offences, psychiatric criminality, assessment of the effects of torture, and risk assessment. She has experience of appearing as an expert witness and of preparing psychiatric reports for the Crown Court and the Family Court.
Dr Jones has a special interest in Bioidentical Hormone Therapy, based on that fact that hormones (particularly sex hormones) impact very significantly on mood, anxiety, memory and sleep. Based on this, measures patients' hormones and balances them wherever possible to treat the cause of hormone associated mood disturbance. She may use this method instead of or in addition to prescribing medication.

I would highly recommend The Hormone Clinic and Dr Jones who has been highly professional and knowledgeable. I have been reassured throughout the process with great understanding. For anyone who feels that their hormones are out of balance as I did, I would suggest booking an appointment and achieving clarity.
Thank you so much for your review. I am so happy you have been satisfied with your treatment so far. With best wishes.
Dr Jones, is very understanding and has a kind way about her. I am young to be going through this, so it has been nice to have someone listen and help. I am in early stages as only just had my first blood test, but the results are in and I am excited to see how things go. Dr Jones has explained everything clear so fingers crossed I will see some of the old me very soon.
Thank you for your kind review. I am so pleased you are happy with your treatment so far but see you weren't fully satisfied with the explanation you received. I am always trying to improve the service for patients and feedback on how the explanation could be improved would be much appreciated. Best wishes

I was in a dark place when I came to Dr Jones as I was suffering badly with my mental health due to menopause. She was compassionate and reassuring and I’m now six months in to treatment and can see light at the end of the tunnel.
