Everyone can benefit from counselling
As it is true that people often start counselling in a moment of crisis, it is also true that the potential benefits gained from counselling and psychotherapy are not just for people in life transition or crisis, but also for someone who is looking at their own self realisation and development.
So everyone can benefit from counselling as each one of us experiences challenges at one point or another.
Starting counselling is not just an investment to deal with trouble. Therapy and coaching is very much something that wise, talented and professional people do.
Many people have experienced the positive impact counselling or psychotherapy can have on their lives. The terms counselling and psychotherapy are often used interchangeably. Counselling can help you with more immediate problems to hand relating to the present and psychotherapy works more deeply, particularly if it has to do with things that haven’t been worked through from your past. It is an opportunity for you to think about and explore your difficulties with a professional person who will help you to make sense of what is troubling you and to find a way forward. Privacy, confidentiality and working collaboratively, is of central importance in counselling and psychotherapy.
An Expansive View of Life
Challenges often can carry an opportunity to enrich life experience and understanding.
We provide a relaxed and secure space where you can shift your level of awareness and understanding so that you can take a more expansive view of life.
We work looking at the causes of you feeling stuck and find ways to help. Most importantly, we are going to identify strategies and solutions that can support you to make your desired changes so that you can feel more empowered and fulfilled.

Issues our Counsellors Work With
At Leone Centre, our individual counselling in Chelsea sessions can work with but are not limited to:
- Relationship problems
- Anxiety, stress, depression
- Confidence and self esteem issues
- Challenges in being a parent/son/sibling/partner
- Loneliness (even in the presence of others)
- Eating disorders
We are personable and approachable. We maintain transparency and do not believe in professional pretence. Our focus is on working together and facilitating transformation.
The most important agent for change is the relationship between client and therapist; this remains paramount throughout our work.
We believe that:
- Clients themselves are the best experts of their own life, motivation and choices. Our expertise lies in the work.
- Sustainable and positive change is usually subtle and happens over time.
- The healthiest people are the ones who connect to support.
- Pathologising the human condition is not a place we work with.
- We maintain transparency: there is no magic pill, there is no silver bullet.
We welcome, value and work with people from all backgrounds and experiences, and have the utmost regard towards every individual’s identity, gender, sexuality, religion, disability, culture, ethnicity and age.
At times we work with people in crisis or people whose lives seem to be going pretty well on the outside – but privately, they’re struggling. At times the source of the hurt is clearly known, other times it’s waiting to be discovered. Either way, something needs to be addressed in order to fully thrive.
We also work with clients who are already feeling content and balanced enough and are set on keeping it that way through a regular and honest reflection in individual counselling sessions.

Individual Counselling & Psychotherapy Online
Many of our clients utilise our online counselling and psychotherapy service. This can be particularly beneficial for practical reasons. There is always the option to use online counselling for flexible working as and when you finish work late, tubes are down or for any other reason. Online work brings with it many benefits though it might be that the counsellor suggests it might be beneficial to work face-to-face depending on each individual circumstance.
You can organise your individual counselling appointment for a time that suits you, with associates accessible from early morning until late evening. Book an initial appointment by calling one of our centres on 020 3930 1007 or by completing our online booking form on our website today.
