Dr Emma Jartell
I have experience of a wide variety of therapeutic settings, working with loss and bereavement, work-related stress, migration, anxiety, depression and relationship issues. In therapy I will provide a safe, confidential and non-judgemental space where we can explore the challenges in your life and how you can make the choices that are right for you at this point in your life.
I work mainly in an existential and phenomenological way and also have experience in the other main therapeutic approaches such as CBT, which means we can find the solutions most appropriate to your present concerns. I will not use pre-established templates or put labels on you in our therapeutic work, instead I will aim to untangle issues, relationships and thoughts you may be struggling with.
I provide therapy in English and in Swedish.
Training, qualifications & experience
I am a Chartered Counselling Psychologist, HCPC and UKCP registered with experience of working in short and long-term therapeutic settings since 2006. As well as my private practice, I presently work with major healthcare providers.
Previously I have worked for a bereavement service, providing individual therapy for up to two years. Additionally, I have worked in the NHS with clients who have complex mental health issues, such as depression, anxiety, addiction and phobias, as well as facilitating group therapy, carrying out assessments and further referrals.
For my doctorate I researched the experience of losing a sibling in adult life.
I have also trained in Counselling for Depression (CfD) with the University of Nottingham, which is part of Improving Access to Psychological Therapies (IAPT) in the NHS, as recommended by the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE).

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.
UK Council for Psychotherapy
The UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP) is a leading professional body for the education, training and regulation of psychotherapists and psychotherapeutic counsellors. Its register is accredited by the government's Professional Standards Authority.
As part of its commitment to protect the public, it works to improve access to psychotherapy, to support and disseminate research, to improve standards and to respond effectively to complaints against its members.
UKCP standards cover the range of different psychotherapies. Registration is obtained by training or accrediting with one of its member organisations, or by holding a European Certificate in Psychotherapy. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.

Areas of counselling I deal with
Due to Covid19 I have moved all sessions online. Telephone sessions are also an option, should you prefer this.
The fee for individual sessions is £95 and each session lasts for 50 minutes. We will usually meet for an agreed number of sessions or ongoing, depending on what you feel you need. In the initial session we can discuss whether short or long-term therapy would be most beneficial for you.
I am registered with The Private Practice Register and Healthcode, which include a number of private medical insurance companies such as AXA PPP, BUPA, Aviva, WPA and Allianz.
Some reduced rates available, please contact me to discuss possible days and times.
Cancellation policy: Inevitably there may be times when you need to cancel a session. However, the session is booked for you and will not be filled by someone else should you cancel near the time of the scheduled session. The cancellation policy is:
- In advance (minimum of 48 hours) cancellation: no fee
- Cancellations within 24 - 48 hours: £20 admin fee
- No attendance/cancellations within 24 hours – full fee
At present I only have availability for online therapy. Please feel free to call me to discuss available dates and times.
I adhere to HCPC's Standards of Proficiency, the BPS Code of Ethics and Conduct and UKCP's Ethical Principles and Code of Professional Conduct.
