Counselling and Psychotherapy counsellor based in Benfleet, Essex, covering Southend, Leigh-on-sea Basildon and surrounding areas.

Welcome and thank you for visiting. I hope to answer any questions that you may have in the following pages. If not then please call me or email and I will be happy to answer them for you.

I am a registered therapist and member of The British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and adhere to this professional body's Ethical and Practice Framework. My approach is integrative which means that I am a qualified counsellor who can use different approaches that help both of us to further understand you, your individual needs and issue/s.


Home. tonyTherapy takes place in a private and quiet residential area in Benfleet, Essex, a location ten miles from Southend-on-sea and five miles from Basildon. My practice is approximately one and a half miles from Benfleet railway station, is close to major bus routes and also has free parking.

I have previously worked as a therapist and counsellor at an agency in London that specialised in abuse and associated difficulties such as anxiety, depression, anger, guilt and relationship problems. My clientele were from different ethnicities, cultures and backgrounds. I am now in private practice.

I offer one-to-one (face to face) counselling and couples counselling for adults and older adults. I believe the therapeutic relationship we have is vitally important as it is within this that change begins and evolves from an encouragement of self-awareness. This can gradually bring you to experience and embody worth, meaning and harmony within your self and in your relationships with others.

As a therapist I offer a genuine and non-judgemental empathic attitude. It is this that encourages a deeper understanding for both of us to explore your difficulties and to address them.

Many of my clients over the last five years have commented on how much better they feel after just one session. It seems that in outlining their issue to me as a counsellor or therapist allows them to truly listen to themselves and begin their own healing process.


Client Testimonials

I had been suffering from deep depression, stress and anxiety and didn't know why. Anthony is very kind and understanding and allowed me to talk about myself and the relationship that I was in. I was able to look at myself in a different way that showed me I could be more honest with myself. I now suffer less from depression and I am able to be happy in life and my relationship.

F, Southend

Anger seemed to rule my life. I didn't know this until I started therapy and began to talk about my stress and worries. I cried in the first session but I was not uncomfortable and didn't feel silly. I had tried another therapist before but couldn't talk about how I was towards my partner. The sessions that I had allowed me to get passed a hurdle and see the glass half full. Sometimes it is up to the top and overflows!

D, Canvey

Anthony helped me through a very difficult time. I could off load my problems and worries and really talk for the first time about my abuse and the trauma I experienced when I was younger. He is one of those types of people that you can talk to as though you have known him all your life except he doesn't tell you what to do. Thanks Anthony for helping me live again.

J, Basildon.
