Jenna Hayes-Allen
Cognitive Behavioural and EMDR Therapist
Jenna Hayes-Allen

Jenna Hayes-Allen

Jenna joined Priory Group in July 2015 as a cognitive behavioural therapist. She has since completed training in eye movement desensitisation and reprocessing (EMDR) and offers this as a further evidence-based approach.

Jenna specialises in working with eating disorders, having worked with this client group in various settings since 2013. She commonly works with this client group at Priory and often works alongside our dietitian.


Jenna graduated from Loughborough University in 2008 with a Bachelor of Science (BSc) in Psychology. She went on to complete a Master of Research (MRes) in Psychology and achieved a publication in the journal Appetite.

Jenna went on to train as a psychological wellbeing practitioner in the NHS and completed a Postgraduate Certificate in Psychological Therapies. Jenna was in this role for three years, and used a guided, self-help approach to work with people experiencing mild to moderate anxiety and depression.

In 2013, Jenna secured a position to train as a cognitive behavioural therapist and achieved a Postgraduate Diploma in Advanced Practice CBT. In 2016, Jenna trained in the EMDR approach and qualified as an EMDR therapist.

Research interests

Jenna has had an interest in eating disorders since her undergraduate degree, working with superiors from Loughborough University Centre for Research into Eating Disorders (LUCRED). She has worked with this client group in a number of settings, including NHS services, an eating disorder charity and at Priory.

Jenna also has a keen interest in post-traumatic stress disorder, working with many clients with this diagnosis using EMDR.

I am passionate about providing a supportive environment for my patients to be able to work on achieving their goals. Using evidence-based approaches with cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) and eye movement desensitisation and reprocessing (EMDR), I am keen to help people reach recovery and learn skills to help maintain this, following therapy. I regularly review therapy with my patients to ensure that it continues to meet individual patient’s needs.
