Elizabeth (Liz) Jones
I am a chartered psychologist (HCPC, BPS) with over 15 years experience, offering psychological therapy and coaching sessions. I now work exclusively in private practice, following 15 years also working in the NHS.
My work is integrative, meaning I will adapt sessions depending on your needs and goals. My focus is on supporting people to better understand and confront habitual ways of responding to the challenges we face in life, in order to foster improved functioning and well-being.
I work with individuals who experience depression, low mood, stress, relationship issues, anxiety (panic, generalised anxiety disorder, PTSD, OCD, social anxiety, health anxiety), relationship issues, family issues, anger, bereavement, HIV, eating disorders, and physical health conditions, including chronic pain and insomnia. I also work with people who simply wish to improve the quality of their relationships or experience life with more ease.
Email or ring me and we can arrange a free initial 15 minute consultation on the phone and I can give you an idea of how we might work together. If you are happy to continue, we can arrange a first appointment to speak about what you would like help with in more detail. I might typically suggest having 6 weekly sessions and then reviewing progress.
Training, qualifications & experience
I trained as a Counselling Psychologist and am accredited by the BPS and registered with the HCPC. Counselling psychology is a specialist therapy training in different approaches to psychological therapy. My work draws predominantly cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) and psychodynamic therapy, and my experience includes working as a senior counselling psychologist in the NHS for 15 years, and a clinical tutor teaching CBT at UCL for 7 years. I am also an accredited Dynamic Interpersonal Therapist (DIT) with the BPC.
Before working as a psychologist, I trained in economics and information systems and worked as a management consultant. I also have lived internationally, including USA, Norway, and France.
Registered / Accredited
Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.
Health and Care Professions Council
The HCPC are an independent, UK-wide health regulator. They set standards of professional training, performance and conduct for 16 professions.
They keep a register of health professionals who meet their standards, and they take action if registered health professionals fall below those standards. They were created by a piece of legislation called the Health Professions Order 2001.
Registration means that a health professional meets national standards for their professional training, performance and conduct.
