Video Game Addiction


Has your relationship with gaming become something which feels less and less in your control? Are you finding it hard to concentrate and be present in other areas of your life? Do you continue to use video gaming despite the negative impacts it has on your relationships and life?

The computer industry has developed hugely in recent years and advances in technology bring with them, without doubt, many positives to the advancing and development of individuals and societies globally whether in the gaming industry or elsewhere. Though most people are able to enjoy the joys of gaming, for some, it becomes a relationship which starts to become destructive, making it difficult to be present in other aspects of your life.

At Leone Centre, we can help you understand your relationship with gaming, the thoughts, feelings, triggers and emotions connected to impulses, urges and out of control relationship with gaming alongside productive and constructive ways to manage your behavioural and psychological health including stress and anxiety.

As with any behavioural addiction – we know that you can recover – no matter how long you have been struggling. We also know that there is not something wrong with you but you have likely suffered significant stress and/or trauma at some point in your life. (would be good to have a trauma page?! To reference here and on generic addictions therapy page? Trauma therapy?) We promote recovery through healing these wounds, so you are able to find fulfilment in the present.

At Leone Centre we are dedicated to providing you with the highest quality service of professional expertise and compassionate care, so you can heal from your addiction knowing you are in safe and trusted hands. We offer therapy services in Putney, Fulham, Victoria and Wimbledon. To enquire, please call, e-mail or use the online booking tool to book an assessment or a free consultation today.
