Dr. Anju Soni says "Throughout my working life I have been involved in enabling people to grow and change. I am an experienced Professional Mental Health Counsellor, with a back ground in providing / guiding people for the mental well-being. Further, I am a certified counsellor for Adolescent & Children. Also a registered member with Chennai Counselor’s Foundation with regn # JPC-164. Also having completed “Fellowship in Applied Nutrition”, can provide both psychological / Nutrition-cum-diet guidance. I empower couples and individuals to overcome personal obstacles to improve their lifestyle. My knowledge and skills have developed through my studies / hands-on work in practice, as a mental health counsellor. 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. What excites me most about the potential of Counselling & Occupational Therapy is the focus on the promotion of mental health and wellbeing, rather than on mediating the negative effects of health-related problems. Learning more about this inspiring approach of changing the lives of people, allowing me to achieve mental satisfaction and marching towards my ultimate goal of making a change in approach, of people, in their life.Prior to training as a psychological counsellor, I was into research management. Being a research scholar had done various researches during my career. Published paper on “Presence of elevated non-HDL among patients with T2DM with CV events despite of optimal LDL-C – A report from South India.”Recently, I have completed my research on – “To study the prevalence of depression, Anxiety, Stress and Quality of Life among of Menopausal Women”The counselling is to provide comprehensive mental health / diet counselling, assessment and consultation, so that the patients are able to effectively manage their daily stressors, experience personal growth & development and succeed in fulfilling their responsibilities, and they can progress towards better future.MENTAL HEALTH COUNSELING• Eating and weight problems• Stress• Anxiety• Fear and panic attacks• Depression• Anger management• Employee and staff disengagement• Neglected opportunities• Building confidence for future• Communication and assertion• Motivation, direction and meaning in life• Feelings of emptiness • Relationship issues • Adjustments to school / collages• Recovery from Trauma• Grief / loss• Confused about feelings• Confused about feelings• Depression, low self-esteem and hopelessness• Feelings of worthlessness• Feeling sad and down• Suicidal ideation and attempts• Self-harm/self-mutilationNUTRITION / DIET COUNSELING• Nutritional Assessment• Nutrient requirements• Food composition• Patterns of consumption• Regulatory aspects of food & nutrition• Nutrition needs in various stages of life cycle• Nutritionists generally work in a preventative role on a one-to-one and a group basis with patients of all ages.• Dieticians who primarily work with people who are ill.• Nutritionists mostly work with people who are healthy too".
I was extremely nervous before going there. But Dr. Soni was extremely warm and friendly. It gave me hope and am extremely grateful to her for that.
****** **** ****** **** giving nice explanations going till the debt of the problem understanding the patients mental illness and give treatment according to that im really satisfied and happy with doctor's treatment i will recommend all of you to visit her once.
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!

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.
