My name is Jan Chant and I’m a very experienced counsellor and psychotherapist based in Leigh on Sea and working online and by phone.


I work in a warm, honest and genuine way with individuals and couples from all walks of life, adapting the way I work to meet your particular needs, concerns and stage of life. I adhere to the BACP framework for ethical practice.


My commitment is to offer safe, effective therapy in an understanding, calm and constructive environment. My work aims to uncover the causes of your current concerns, to support you and promote self-awareness, empowerment and lasting change.


Choosing the right therapist for you is very important so please explore this website to find out more about me and how I can help. For a list of matters I work with see the ‘Is Counselling For Me?’ page. On other pages you’ll find further information about appointments and fees and more about my background, as well as an outline of what to expect in your first session.


I am currently taking on new clients (both individuals or couples). Due to the immense popularity and convenience of  online sessions I am no longer offering ‘in-person’ appointments; instead all appointments take place via Whatsapp video call, FaceTime, Skype, or Zoom, with the exception of the increasingly popular ‘Walk & Talk’ sessions. For Walk & Talk we meet in person in Leigh Library Gardens or stroll together along Marine Parade. Many people find walking and talking helps them to think clearly – plus all the benefits of Nature and fresh air! Walk & Talk sessions are for individuals only.


I am also currently offering reduced fees for Front line (in contact with patients) NHS workers. See the NHS Workers section on the Appointments & Fees page.



Please feel free to email or phone me to make an appointment, or with any questions you may have.

I look forward to hearing from you…
