Psychotherapy and counselling in Esher (near Hersham, Kingston upon Thames, Claygate, Oxshott, Walton, Weybridge and Thames Ditton).
Hello and welome. My name is Emma Brett-Jones and I am a qualified and experienced psychodynamic counsellor and psychotherapist.
If you have found my website then perhaps you are experiencing some worries. Often people experience emotional difficulties during their lives and at times turn to a therapist to help reflect on their situation.
You may be struggling with feelings of anxiety, low self-esteem or coping with depression. Perhaps you are at a point of crisis, experiencing a relationship breakdown or facing major work/life changes such as parenthood, redundancy, retirement or bereavement. It could be that you recognise patterns that seem to be repeated throughout your life and simply feel stuck.
We are living in a uncertain times. The experience of the pandemic was unprecedented. We now face the cost of living crisis, the climate crisis and wars in Ukraine and the Middle East. These harsh realities can impact our sense of safety in the world and contribute to feelings of stress, powerlessness and anxiety.
My work as a counsellor and psychotherapist is to provide a confidential, safe and calm setting for you to talk and for us think together about your situation. Reaching out to a therapist may feel daunting and I understand it can require a lot of courage to speak to a stranger about your feelings. Once trust is established, therapy can help you to gain greater self-awareness and a deeper understanding of your relationships. In particular the psychodynamic approach can help to reveal the underlying causes of present day difficulties, which can enable you to make choices about the life situations you may be facing.
I work both face-to-face in-person and on zoom.
