C. Ella Jones UKCP reg., MA, PG Dip
I am a fully qualified UKCP-registered psychotherapist, trainer and supervisor and run a women-only practice. I am interested in all areas relating to a woman's life, from early childhood experiences and trauma, to the smallest of dreams that has gone astray. I work in a creative and integrative way to help women explore their life stories, heal their wounds, and find the path forward that is right for them. I have a special interest in recovery from abuse and sexual trauma and am experienced in working with dissociation and DID. I also work with boarding school syndrome and the specific impact of early abandonment on girls.
As an integrative therapist, my approach will be tailored to your needs. I have also been trained by Dr. Clarissa Pinkola Estes' to use her iconic work Women Who Run With The Wolves in my practice, and offer long and short-term one-to-one programmes to explore your story using myths and archetypes.
I offer private one-to-one sessions, and am also a recognised provider for Axa, Aviva and VitalityHealth insurance providers.
During the COVID-19 pandemic, I will be offering Skype, Zoom, FaceTime and telephone sessions.
