Dr Rachel Jones
Consultant psychiatrist and BHRT specialist
Dr Rachel Jones

Rachel Jones

Dr Jones worked in the NHS between 1993 and 2013. She held many roles during that time as she progressed through the different levels of seniority. She became a consultant psychiatrist in 2005 and held a consultant post in general adult psychiatry at the West Suffolk Hospital in Bury St Edmunds between 2005 and 2007 and then in forensic psychiatry at The John Howard Secure Hospital in London between 2007 and 2013.

Dr Jones left the NHS in June 2013 and has since concentrated on private practice.

Dr Jones joined Priory Hospital in Chelmsford and the St Edmunds Hospital as a visiting consultant in June 2013.

She works with adults (18-65 year olds) and manages patients with a broad range of psychiatric disorders including organic psychiatric disorders, schizophrenia, depressive disorders, bipolar affective disorder, anxiety disorders, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), personality disorders, alcohol and substance misuse disorders and neurodevelopmental disorders such as attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD).

Dr Jones often engages psychological therapists to work alongside her to assist with treatment.

Dr Jones has a special interest in bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) and is qualified to assess, investigate and prescribe bioidentical hormones.

She offers a bespoke service through The Hormone Clinic, an award-winning clinic that specialises in identifying and treating mental health (and physical symptoms) in men and women, caused by hormone imbalance. She prescribes body identical and BHRT depending on symptoms and individual choice.

BHRT is a bespoke formula of completely natural hormones, identical to the ones produced in the body, in a combination required for the individual.

She treats a wide range of conditions including perimenopause, menopause, premenstrual syndrome, premenstrual dysphoric disorder, postnatal depression, depressive disorder, and hormonal acne in women. For men, she treats testosterone deficiency and male menopause (andropause).

All consultations are online, making appointments accessible to everyone throughout the UK.

She keeps up to date with ongoing professional development and is fully approved in her practice by the General Medical Council and the Royal College of Psychiatrists

Dr Jones has extensive experience in preparing psychiatric reports for The Crown Court, The Family Court and appearing as an expert witness


Dr Jones graduated in medicine from St Bartholomew’s Hospital before training in General Adult Psychiatry and Forensic Psychiatry. She has been on the General Medical Council Specialist Register for Forensic Psychiatry since 2005.

Research Interests

Dr Jones has a special interest in BHRT.  It is known that testosterone in men and oestrogen, progesterone and testosterone in women (as well as other hormones) impact very significantly on mood, anxiety, memory, and sleep. She takes a holistic approach, measures patients’ hormones, and balances them wherever possible. This may be instead of or as well as prescribing medication.
