Dr Brittni Jones

Brittni is a Chartered Psychologist, Doctor of Clinical Psychology, and therapist with over 10 years experience in mental health services. 

Brittni provides assessments and therapy in an attentive and warm manner, and tailors her approach to meet your needs. 

With a current NHS position in a specialist hospital for adults with personality disorders, and previous experience at Great Ormond Street Hospital and psychotherapy services for adolescents and adults with mental and physical health conditions, Brittni has the knowledge and professional experience to help with a wide variety of difficulties.

 

Brittni offers specialist assessments for individuals of all ages, including cognitive assessments for children and adults, and expert witness and medico-legal reports. She also offers therapy suitable for children, adolescents, and adults.  

As a Clinical Psychologist, Brittni has studied a number of different therapeutic approaches, including psychodynamic and systemic therapies as well as Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT). Brittni is aware that some people have tried therapy before without full success. As a result, she focuses on getting to know you and your needs before developing a treatment plan.

This tailored approach is most suitable for individuals with long-standing or complex needs, or for those who have tried different treatments before and would like to try something different. This includes chronic depression or anxiety disorders that have not improved with therapy in the past, relationship problems, trauma, personality disorders, chronic physical health symptoms, and long-term life circumstances that are difficult to change or cope with. This approach is also suitable for people who would like to engage in a sustained period of exploratory therapy with no pre-defined problem or goal. 

Brittni is undergoing specialist training in open-ended psychodynamic psychotherapy. You may read more about this type of therapy here. As this therapy is open-ended (meaning that you will continue therapy for an unspecified period of time and agree to discuss and agree the ending together), Brittni offers a reduced rate for this type of therapy.

 

Brittni currently provides supervision in the NHS and can offer supervision to private practitioners. She also provides reflective practice and consultation to organisations and businesses interested in promoting increased mental health and effective team working.
