About me

Hello and welcome.

My name is Emma Brett-Jones and I am a qualified and experienced psychodynamic counsellor and psychotherapist working in private practice in Esher.

Many people experience emotional difficulties during their lives and at times feel like they may need help to reflect on their situation. You may be coping with depression or struggling with feelings of stress or anxiety or experiencing a relationship breakdown. It might be that you simply wish to develop greater self-awareness, and a deeper understanding of your relationships with others.

I provide a safe, confidential and calm environment for you to talk and for us think together about your situation. I offer weekly sessions on a short term or longer term basis according to your needs.

Psychodynamic approach

I am experienced in helping clients who have been struggling with:

  • feeling stressed or anxious
  • experiencing low self-esteem or a lack of confidence
  • finding it difficult to make or sustain good relationships
  • repeatedly being involved in destructive or unsatisfactory relationships
  • performance anxiety
  • struggling with family conflicts
  • work-related stress
  • panic attacks
  • anxiety or fears
  • self-harm
  • coming to terms with losses such as separation, redundancy or bereavement
  • feeling depressed, sad or empty
  • lacking a sense of purpose or meaning in life
  • coming to terms with one's sexuality or gender
  • physical or body image problems

My practice is within easy reach of Esher, Walton, Hersham, Claygate, Cobham, Thames Ditton and Kingston-upon-Thames. It is 10 minutes walk from Claygate Station and 2 minutes walk to a K3 bus stop. There is free parking available on the street or side roads.

If you would like to meet for an initial consultation, email or call me. If I'm unable to take your call please leave a telephone message and I will contact you as soon as possible.
