Age 35 – 45 Domestic Violence, Dependency issues, Depersonalisation, Depression, Burnout

I was totally confused and didn’t know who I was and what to do. Leona made me feel at ease in a non judgmental environment. This was very important at that time because I was very anxious and scared. The thing I value the most about Leona is that she cares about what she does. Unfortunately, this is an uncommon quality. I respect her and she respects me. I feel I have more command of my life and I am more in contact with myself.

Age 25 – 35 Job Loss, Low Confidence, Depression

  I lost my job, and was betrayed by a friend in quick succession, leaving me lost and broken and feeling like a complete failure. I had lost all status attributed to my career, with no support network as I had a bad relationship with my parents and little trust towards my friends. I felt ugly, ashamed and lacking self-worth. I couldn’t sleep, and I couldn’t stop crying and avoided going out. I appreciated Leona’s straight talking, objectively identifying my issues and dealing with e...

Age 5 – 15 School Bullying, Poor School Management, Depression

Normally, I don’t like to come to places like these, because I went to two places before and they were terrible rubbish and I thought you might be rubbish as well. I was forced by my parents to come and now thanks to you my life is better. Before I got better, I was terrible, I was unpopular, I was invisible, I was heartbroken, I felt cold, lonely and I saw no point speaking to my parents about it because they could not resolve it. When I started seeing you some things improved. I have friends...

Age 25 – 35 Domestic Violence, Depression, High Anxiety, Past Trauma

I was dealing with marital issues, anxiety, change of environment and insomnia and I decided to use Leona's services due to her specialisation. Leona was very empathetic and helpful - she helped me to structure my issues, explore them from various angles. She has also provided various ideas on how I can work on my problems and better integrate in the society and on many occasions she went extra mile and provided me with help in her free time during evenings and weekends when I urgently neede...

Age 25 – 35 Depression CBT, Workplace Bullying, Low Confidence

During my last series of CBT sessions (through the services of the NHS) I was advised to research and partake in a course of psychotherapy. Due to work commitments, I was only able to seek help privately and was recommended the services of Westminster Psychotherapy Ltd. My mental health prior to (and during the beginning stages of) therapy was poor. The effects were having a detrimental effect on my general well-being. Working with Leona has been (and continues to be) a refreshing experience. ...

Age 35 – 45 Conflict in Couple, Stress Management, Separation

Ongoing conflict with a partner. Felt an urgent need for new ways of dealing with this problem. Generally very reassuring, and also quite hard work at times as I started seeing many things in a new light, while I also re-claimed some views and positions that the ongoing conflict had previously left me confused about. I was optimistic from the start, but the sessions have been even more helpful than expected, and I have made great progress in many aspects. Conflict situations with my partn...

Age 35 – 45 Work Stress, Daily Pressures, Insomnia

I needed someone to talk to because of daily pressures of work and relationships. Because I was able to release myself emotionally through the sessions, I felt less weighed down mentally. Leona provides a nurturing and caring environment. I feel like I can discuss issues that are important to me without being judged. Indeed, she encourages me to talk through what I’m feeling. At the same time, we are comfortable enough in working together that she can make me see other points of view as we...

Age 25 – 35 Workplace Bullying, Exhaustion, Depression

I self-referred to Leona as I was not myself, I was emotional, stressed and depressed bought on by the environment in my workplace. I felt as if I was in a general state of anxiousness that would not go away and felt that I was useless at a job I would normally perceive myself to be successful at. I had come to a point that I was on leave from my job as I was having panic attacks about going to the office, when I was there I felt aggressive towards co-workers and I was utterly exhausted.
