I believe that there is always something new to learn working in this field and make a regular commitment to on-going professional development and clinical supervision. My ambition is to provide a safe, healthy environment for people / youth, by which they can thrive and reach their highest potential, as Mental Health and well-being is crucial to the development of every person.With blessings of God, I have been invited by educational institutions / corporates, as a visiting speaker, to offer presentation on Women’s health & mental wellness.

i visited doctor Anju soni for my personal psychological issues. she is extremely friendly, kind and i always feel like talking to a sister or a family member. My family and myself had a wonderful experience. Not only has she taken great care of my physical and mental health but also she is lovely to speak with every appointment. It is rare to find a doctor that combines such personal touche and care for a patient as a person with outstanding quality of medical care. I highly recommend to anyone. 5 or 50 years it doesnt matter. she handles everyone and every problem like a pro. i am almost cured by her therapy and started to lead my life peacefully like ever before. i am grateful. Thanks to Anju didi

Dr.Anju Soni is an angel, she guided me to see the light. I never felt like a patient , she was my friend and mentor throughout the session. I wish everyone will have a mentor like my doctor, she can take care of minds in such possible best way. Thank you ma'am, God bless you

I had my first appointment with Dr Anju mam on 7th June for my various psychological and physical health issues. I have had 4 sessions so far and i am alomst feeling normal. She listens very patiently without any judgement. She takes scientific assessment about the problem and guides us accordingly rather than giving advice or suggestion. It is more of creating self awareness n self love. I have been suffering from obesity for almost 18 yrs now. I have tried every single way to lose weight but have failed due to lack of self motivation n other psychological issues. Now i have lost close to 5 kgs in a month by religiously following her diet n guidance. I am more happy and content now. I was even suicidal at some point before consulting her. Now i am completing feeling normal like others and have found a new perspective of life. Thank You will not be enough to express my gratitude for Anju mam. I will stay mentally n physically fit and that's how i could express my gratitude to her. She s indeed an god sent angel who has loads of positive vibes. Her clinic is very neat and you can visit during this covid time too. I strongly recommend Dr Anju mam for any of your physical n psychological issues. Good luck!
I want to start by saying that mental health is a serious issue and please do not hesitate to talk to a professional. Not once did I regret going to Dr. Anju for my mental health issues. She is really an amazing person who encouraged me and supported throughout the process. Dr. Anju is very patient and listens to our problems. Before consulting her, I was not sure if this would work for me, but after my first session I realized that this is the right approach. Apart from listening to our problems, she makes us do a lot of activity (assignments) which basically helps us understand the problems we are going through and how to come out of it (we must do it sincerely). She is very straight forward and friendly. I once again would like to stress the importance of talking to a professional when you are going through something. Definitely, I will recommend Dr. Anju.
Dr. Anju Soni is a one of a kind of counselor , whose friendliness and sincerity are unparalleled. She approaches a patient like he/she is her own family member.Another important factor is the ambience of "CoolWits",as the place itself gives you a positive energy .She is 100% committed to her work. However grave your issue is, she gradually helps you to come out of it. The only thing that you have to make sure is that you attend every session and you will be able to see the magic for yourself.You may go to her with a specific problem but after the sessions you will no longer have to worry about any issues in life because madam makes us so strong to face anything that may come up in life . I am so thankful that I was able to meet Anju ma'am at a crucial point in my life, where I wanted to give up on life forever. I was sinking deeply into depression . But after a few sessions I was able to experience the positive change for myself. she gave me clarity and perspectives of life .This transition is truly beautiful.Also,the exercises and diet that she had advised helped my body too , which in turn supplemented my mental well being.This wonderful approach of connecting body and mind proved to be beneficial for me, beyond my expectations.I thank Anju ma'am for her passionate counseling sessions . I will recommend her especially for teenagers and adults with any kind of psychological issues or any problems in life.
I went to consultant Dr.Anju Soni for my marital issues. Me and my wife have been married for 5 years now. Suddenly we started having misunderstandings and even thought of divorce. Went for counselling as a last resort. And I would say thats the best decision of our life, especially meeting Dr Anju Soni. She is a very practical person who doesnt sugar coat anything and is always black and white. She made us correct our own issues and this helped us stop blaming each other and helped us restart our love life once again. we still fight but the intensity is too low and we become normal in a very short span of time. I would recommend Dr Anju for all psychological issues and the result is assured. Best Wishes to Dr Anju and i hope my review helps someone who is in need of mental support.
Dr was very soft and spoke just like a friend I can saw met a new good friend. Her way of explanation was good and I am very much satisfied with her treatment.
I am completely satisfied with the way doctor explained my issue.she understands what is your problem then gives you the solution and that solution actually works and it helped me well.compare to before i am really doing good with my career all credit goes to her.Thanks a lot.
