About me

Individual 50 minute counselling sessions available, online or in person.

Time where you can get your thoughts and feelings out into the open and have your voice heard, in confidence and without judgement.

You receive:

  • one to one, confidential support
  • a safe, calm, gentle and culturally sensitive space
  • compassion without judgement
  • encouragement to talk about the issues that are important to you
  • the option of a free initial 20 minute call
  • therapy to fit your needs.

For counselling to be effective there has to be a good working relationship between you and your counsellor so, I've tried to give you a idea here of what working with me is like, but please feel free to call, text or email if you have any questions.

07484 160971 info@anjali-leverton.co.uk.

Why you should book?

Allowing yourself to be heard and supported makes it easier to confront the difficulties you're experiencing but can be hard to do with those you care about. Perhaps, because you don't want to hurt or burden them, or because they're too involved or may be you feel you need to be strong for them?

Whatever the reason, talking to someone not directly involved, can help.

Personal experiences as well as my professional training, qualifications and experience with the NHS and a national cancer charity, Anxiety UK as well as private clients, means that I'm able to provide you with space to look from different perspectives at the challenges you're facing and the changes that you'd like see.

This is done at the pace that suits you with sessions tailored to meet your needs.

If this sounds like what you're looking for, just call/text 07484 160971 or email info@anjali-leverton.co.uk.

You will always receive a warm welcome and together we'll look at you getting the right support for you, so there wont ever be any obligation to book. 

Issues that I work with include (but are not limited to):

anxiety, bereavement, cancer diagnoses, cross cultural issues, confidence, depression, discrimination, changes in health and managing a new diagnosis either of your own or of a loved one, labeling and stereotyping, managing expectations (these can be your own or placed on you by others), self-esteem.


Whether it's individual short term or longer term, ongoing counselling that you're looking for, I adapt my way of working to help you to get to where you want to be.

All appointments are one to one and last 50 minutes. We'll agree together how often we meet and the sessions can be online or face to face.

Online: I use Zoom's secure video conferencing technology and will send you a link to our meeting once you've confirmed your booking.

Meeting online allows you to have the sessions from an environment that's familiar to you and without any time being lost to travel.

In person: I have access to comfortable, purpose designed counselling rooms that allow for social distancing, in Wickford, Essex.  These appointments are offered in line with current Governmental guidelines.

Member organisations


British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy

BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.

Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.

All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.

Key details

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
