At Leone Centre, our experienced, sensitive and approachable team of therapists address a wide variety of issues that may affect your emotional wellbeing and mental health. Every day, there are millions of people who face challenges that they may silently struggle with or try to deal with on their own. Whether you suffer from stress, anxiety or depression, have relationship issues in your private or professional life, struggle with low self-esteem or are coming to terms with a bereavement, we can help.
When stress exceeds healthy levels, it can undermine your happiness and wellbeing. Too much stress can cause problems at work, in relationships and can even lead to physical illness. Stress related physiological symptoms include insomnia and the inability to relax, lethargy and loss of appetite, headaches and digestive complaints, low libido and much more. At Leone Centre, our approach to stress management will help you develop a mindful attitude so that you can recognise signs of stress, and find tools to feel confident and in control.
One in four people are affected by depression at some point in their lives. It can have such a deep impact that even simple daily tasks may be difficult to perform. Do you feel anxious and irritable much of the time? Do you suffer from loss of energy and a general sense of hopelessness? Do you avoid social interactions, have thoughts of self-harm or worse? Depression is rarely the fault of one specific event. Leone Centre offers an integrative and collaborative approach to counselling for depression to help you restore equilibrium, replacing intrinsic negative thinking with positive behaviour.
Anxiety can manifest in different ways. If you’re constantly feeling overwhelmed and on edge, worrying excessively and dreading what tomorrow may bring, you have problems concentrating and your body is always tired and tense, you may be trapped in a recurring anxiety cycle. With the help of a professional anxiety counsellor, you will learn to address the intrinsic beliefs and thought patterns that trigger your anxiety, using different methods to modify the thinking processes that are feeding your irrational feelings of worry and dread.
Understanding self-esteem and building self-confidence are essential to help overcoming blockages, dissatisfaction and negative emotions. A healthy self-esteem can make a huge positive difference to your quality of life, especially where your relationships and career are concerned. Is low self-esteem holding you back in life? We can work together with you in sessions to understand where your negative sense of self-worth originates from and how it became rooted and provide you with the tools to enable you to rebuild your self-esteem and sustain a happier life.
Did you know that 20-50% of UK adults are unhappy in their current job? The psychological impact of stressful or unsatisfactory workplaces on your self-esteem, work/life balance, cognitive needs and general feelings of fulfilment can be significant and should not be underestimated. At Leone Centre, we offer effective career counselling to help you understand how dissatisfaction, frustration or confidence have come to take hold in your work environment, enabling you to identify and pursue the right career path for you, negotiate difficult career decisions and make a successful career change.
Bereavement or grief is a natural, painful response to loss, but everyone’s experience is unique. It can be overwhelming, numbing, devastating, emotionally erratic or impulsive. Many people turn inwards at this time, struggling with blame, guilt and regret. Grieving is a transitional period that can last a long time, particularly if the process is suppressed or avoided. With the help of counselling, you can learn to acknowledge, process and accept the loss, and find a place for the lost person, pet, object or event to allow you to continue with life while remembering them in a healthy, realistic way.
The inability to conceive naturally can leave you and your partner with feelings of failure and sadness. Whether you have just found out that you won’t be able to have children, you are recovering from a miscarriage, are undergoing IVF treatment or are contemplating adoption, fertility counselling can help. Under the guidance of a trained, supportive counsellor, you will learn to navigate and understand your feelings during the emotional roller coaster you and your partner are on, with the aim of improving the health and wellbeing of you as an individual, couple and family.
While infidelity is intensely painful and often triggers a relationship breakup, this doesn’t have to be the case. Infidelity and betrayal are vast, complex fields spanning emotional absence, physical intimacy and sexual affairs, the boundaries of which are different and unique for each couple. At Leone Centre, we offer counselling to help you understand and reframe a cheating partner’s behaviour, so that you can look towards the future with integrity, mutual responsibility and choice, either as a recovering couple or going your separate ways.
