As therapy providers, we understand the intricate weave of mental and emotional health and the profound influence it has on an individual’s quality of life. Our mental and emotional states are not separate from the rest of our experiences; they are deeply connected with our physical well-being, interpersonal relationships, and how we perceive and navigate our world.
Within the domain of Mental and Emotional Health, we address a wide range of concerns. These include common mental health conditions such as anxiety, depression, PTSD, and various forms of addiction. Each of these conditions presents unique challenges, but they also share a common thread: they often result in feelings of isolation, fear, and helplessness. In therapy, we work towards understanding these feelings, learning coping strategies, and moving towards healing and improved mental well-being.
Eating disorders such as anorexia and bulimia, often deeply tied to emotional health and self-perception, are also addressed. Through our sessions, we aim not only to foster a healthier relationship with food but also to explore the underlying emotional struggles that contribute to these conditions.
Emotions such as anger, grief, and stress, while normal parts of the human experience, can become overwhelming and debilitating. Whether these emotional responses are due to bereavement, work stress, or burnout, our therapeutic work can offer tools to manage these emotional states and their impacts more effectively.
Therapy provides a supportive, non-judgmental environment where you can express yourself freely and gain insights into your emotional patterns. Together, we can navigate your mental and emotional landscape, confront challenges head-on, and discover pathways towards resilience and wellness. Our goal is to empower you to live a more fulfilled and balanced life with a deeper understanding of your emotional self and the mental tools to navigate life’s challenges.
Here at the Leone Centre, our experienced therapists support Addiction Therapy issues wherever and whenever you need it most. We understand how lonely it can be to struggle with an addiction and how difficult it can be to seek help, support or advice.
Anger Management Counselling
Anger can be a beautiful emotion that reveals the depth of our passions and emotions, igniting the fire within us to stand up for what we believe in and drive healthy transformation. When anger grows beyond our control, it can be challenging, impacting various aspects of one’s life, including relationships, work, and overall well-being.
Uncontrolled anger can lead to explosive outbursts and damaged relationships. Therapy can offer valuable support and guidance for individuals struggling to manage their anger. Through therapy, individuals can gain a deeper understanding of their anger triggers and patterns, leading to improved emotional well-being and healthier relationships.
Anorexia is a complex eating disorder, also known as Anorexia nervosa, that profoundly affects a person’s physical health, emotional well-being, and connections with others. Anorexia is difficult and can create strain on relationships and families and begin to affect everyday life routines, including working and socialising.
Through a collaborative and empathetic therapeutic approach, therapy offers a transformative path towards healing and recovery for individuals facing anorexia. At Leone Centre, our therapists provide a safe and compassionate space where those with anorexia can delve into the underlying causes of their disorder, unravel complex emotions, and be completely open about their struggles.
Anxiety can manifest in different ways. Suppose you constantly feel overwhelmed and on edge, worrying excessively and dreading what tomorrow may bring. In that case, 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 feeding your irrational feelings of worry and dread.
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 now, struggling with blame, guilt and regret. Grieving is a transitional period that can last long, 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.
Burnout is a widely prevalent and incapacitating condition characterised by persistent physical and emotional depletion, often from prolonged stress exposure and overwhelming professional demands. Its far-reaching effects can significantly impact an individual’s mental health, productivity, and overall satisfaction with life. However, seeking therapy can provide crucial support in addressing and managing burnout.
At Leone Centre, our therapists create a nurturing environment where individuals can look into the causes and triggers of burnout, cultivating self-care and stress management.
Careers are deeply intertwined with our sense of identity, purpose, and overall well-being. However, navigating the complexities of the professional world can bring various challenges and uncertainties. Therapy offers valuable support in exploring and developing one’s career path. At Leone Centre, compassionate therapists create a safe, non-judgmental space where individuals can reflect on their aspirations, values, and strengths.
Through therapy, individuals can gain clarity and insight into their career goals and explore potential barriers or fears. Moreover, therapy can address work-related stress, burnout, and interpersonal conflicts, enhancing work-life balance and healthy relationships in the workplace.
Communication plays a central role in our relationships, both personal and professional. When communication is healthy, it fosters understanding, connection, and growth. However, communication can also be challenging, leading to misunderstandings, conflicts, and emotional distance.
In such cases, therapy can be incredibly beneficial. At Leone Centre, skilled therapists help individuals navigate the complexities of communication by providing a safe and non-judgmental space to explore their patterns, beliefs, and barriers to communication. Therapy helps individuals to build self-awareness to express themselves authentically, understand others’ perspectives, and develop healthier, more fulfilling relationships.
Confidence is an essential aspect of our well-being, influencing how we perceive ourselves and how we interact with others. However, low self-confidence can be a significant barrier, hindering personal growth and impacting relationships. Therapy offers valuable support in building and cultivating confidence. At Leone Centre, compassionate therapists create a safe and supportive space where individuals can explore the underlying factors contributing to their low self-confidence.
Through therapy, individuals can gain insight into negative self-perceptions, challenging beliefs, and past experiences that have shaped their confidence levels. Therapists provide guidance in developing self-compassion, practising healthy self-talk, and setting achievable goals.
The coronavirus pandemic has profoundly impacted individuals and communities worldwide, bringing significant challenges to mental health and relationships. During these unprecedented times, therapy offers crucial support in navigating the emotional toll of the pandemic. At Leone Centre, we offer an empathetic space where individuals can explore their fears, anxieties, and uncertainties related to COVID-19.
Therapy helps individuals process their emotions and build resilience amidst ongoing changes and uncertainties. Additionally, therapy can address the strain on relationships caused by social distancing, isolation, and changes in daily life.
One in four people is affected by depression at some point. It can have such a deep impact that even simple daily tasks may be difficult. Do you feel anxious and irritable much of the time? Do you suffer from a loss of energy and general hopelessness? Do you avoid social interactions and 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.
Low Self-Esteem Therapy
Understanding self-esteem and building self-confidence is essential to help overcome blockages, dissatisfaction and negative emotions. Healthy self-esteem can positively affect your quality of life, especially concerning your relationships and career.
Is low self-esteem holding you back in life? We can work 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 rebuild your self-esteem and sustain a happier life.
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 to improve your health and well-being as an individual, couple and family.
While infidelity is intensely painful and often triggers a relationship breakup, this doesn’t have to be true. 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 to counsel you to 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.
Stress Management Counselling
When stress exceeds healthy levels, it can undermine happiness and well-being. Too much stress can cause problems at work and 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.
