My name is Jan Chant and I’m a very experienced counsellor and psychotherapist based in Leigh on Sea working in-person, 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 find new ways forward, 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 popularity and convenience of online sessions I continue to offer these via Whatsapp video call, FaceTime, or Zoom, as well as in-person meetings in my consulting room, and ‘Walk & Talk’ sessions which involve strolling together along Marine Parade. For more information about appointments including Walk & Talk see the Appointments & Fees page.


Reduced fees are available for front line (in contact with patients) NHS workers and members of the emergency services. See the NHS and Emergency Services 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…
