Start of my new journey and actually doing
What advice I have been given instead of saying I will then not doing it

13 July 2022

Working with Leon over the last couple of months has been amazing. A family friend put me in contact with Leon when I was going though a tough time with anxiety and Depression. We connected straight away from the very first session, he is genuine, caring and open! Leon has great knowledge, skills and habits that have helped me come a long way in all aspects of my life.

My wife said I needed help to manage my anger.She found someone online who might help me,she quipped.Well Leon has helped me to do that in spades. Made me look at my behaviour and what I needed to change ,and the tools needed to do it.Easy to talk to,non judgemental and a wealth of information. Just an all round nice bloke.Thanks Leon,I'm continuing to use what I've learnt and trying to become the best version of Me I know is in me,and what those who mean the most to me deserve too.

After sitting at home for the majority of the start the year, Leon has helped me develop habits to overcome the situation I was stuck in, I feel everything is drastically better and I’m not only back on track but better than before, highly recommended!

Leon has helped me immensely I can’t thank him enough for the time his taken out to help with with my anxiety after just the 2nd session I felt like a completely different person after many years of putting this off I finally felt at peace again! I highly recommend him , thank you again Leon More...

Working with Leon has been an incredibly positive experience. Leon's empathetic, positive and constructive sessions have helped guide me towards simple but very meaningful changes in the way I perceive, react to, and manage stress and anxiety. I sought Leon's help when my anxiety reached a level I could no longer manage on my own, and I'm so glad I did. Thank you, Leon! More...

Just 4 weeks ago I was stuck, I had no drive for anything and thought I had no purpose. I was a negative wreck and was pushing my loved ones away. As soon as I met Leon I felt hope for the first time in a long time. After only taking 4 sessions I feel so much more different and have already developed positive habits. I was always against therapy or getting help for mental health, but Leon was very helpful and took his time, now I will never look back. I will continue to work with Leon because he keeps me accountable, and I always come out a better person after our sessions. Thank you Leon. More...

The day I hit rock bottom i new i needed help. i hated the person id become, i was very negative, emotional , moody and needed help. I had booked an appointment for counselling but was a three month wait. In desperation this day I googled found a ink and not long after filling in my details I received a p;hone call. That phone call was from Leon reaching out and that call was the beginning of my recovery. I have been chatting with Leon for nearly 3 months now and whilst I still have a way to go he has change the way I feel about myself, he is helping me to become that person i use to love and helping me work on so many things in my life. I dont have to travel, i just log on with zoom in the comfoirt on my own home, which with COVID is a godsend. If your like i was, struggling with liife in general, no matter how big or small, please dont suffer in silence, reach out and Leon will take you on the wonderful journey of recovery and withinn the first couplle of sessions you will no it was all worth it!!

Been working with Leon for a over a month now and have not looked back!! Through his genuine, empathetic and professional help, im automatically put at ease, knowing truly well that he's got my best interest in mind, wanting me to get me back to my very best.

Leon has been amazing throughout my time with him, he is genuine in his care and really feels like he wants to help people become equipped with the right habits and skills for a long and healthy life. I honestly feel that no matter who you are, or what you are going through he will be able to add value to your life and provide a positive and uplifting experience. I can't recommend this service enough. More...

Hi Kayde. Thank you for your very kind review. I admire your commitment to your personal growth. You really get that it's not what happens that determines the major part of your future - the key is what you do about it. It is a pleasure working with you. - Leon

Leon has been speaking with my husband for a few months now and the change in him is extremely noticeable. He was about to leave his long time career due to lack of interest knowing it would be a bad move so close to retirement. Leon has been giving him the skills on how to manage the staff better, deal with problem solving more efficiently and most of all getting up in the morning after having a good night sleep due to strategies put in place by Leon. His overall attitude has changed and he has become a lot happier on a daily basis. I thank Leon for helping my husband become a better manager, a more understanding father and most of all a happier man. Makes any wife's life easier, thanks Leon. More...

Cognitive Behaviour Therapy

I have generalised anxiety disorder and have lived with it for most of my life. I have tried a lot of talk therapy but didn’t feel it was the right option for me. 


Leon has been teaching me cognitive behavioural techniques which includes a lot of solution and motivational based work. Through this style of therapy I am feeling more hopeful and positive to finally be working on practical skills to help myself push through the anxious feelings.


Leon is extremely kind and approachable and is always up for a chat when I’m struggling, which I feel sets him apart from a lot of other Therapists I have encountered!

Therapist

This past year has been so difficult for so many people.
Prior to it I almost never experienced unmanageable emotions, depression, anxiety, or intrusive thoughts. When they first stuck I was terrified and overwhelmed. I adore being happy and this new person was a stranger to me. I needed help.
Leon and I are a team. He patiently listens to everything I have to say and helps me understand my feelings and my thoughts. I've learned that nothing I feel is wrong, that it's only there for my benefit.
Throughout my time at Be Happy Again I have learned so much about managing my depression and anxiety. I feel like me again. The road to mental health is not a linear one, there may be days that are worse than others, but I now have the tools and know the techniques to manage them. I can be happy whenever I want to be.

Leon takes a really unique approach to self-development, focused on empowering you to take action and change your circumstances. His ongoing reminder that he is there to support me, being able to call him anytime - day or night, is extremely reassuring and unlike any other therapist I’ve seen. He is committed, organised and non-judgemental. His mechanisms for change are powerful and actually work if you put them into practice. I am so grateful to have been recommended to see Leon as he is by far the best therapist I have come across. More...

A good friend put me onto Leon. After our first phone call I felt at ease.
Leon has been nothing but supportive when I was facing the hardest point in my life so far. He gave me the tools I needed & constant support I needed.
If you are struggling & thinking about contacting Leon, take that leap of faith & do it. It is honestly the best thing I have done for myself.
Thanks Leon :)

Cognitive Behaviour Therapy

Stop reading, book an appointment!

That's my advice. I spent years silently suffering when -in hindsight it was completely unnecessary- and my only regret is that I wished I'd done it years earlier.

Leon's approach is very easy to do, digestible, logical and diverse. He doesn't just stick to one method, and most importantly- it works. He takes the best of multiple types of therapies, and in my experience, doesn't subscribe to a 'one therapy fits all' mentality. He's amazing, professional, effective, friendly and keeps you accountable, but most of all- empathetic and really wants to help others with genuine care.

In a few short months he has helped me drastically improve my quality of life; ergo I have been able to improve my mental and physical health, as well as the professional and personal relationships around me. I'm very thankful.

If you're feeling even a little the same way, you won't regret making even just one appointment. They are filled with information that you will be able to use on a daily basis and you will soon start feeling like an older, more balanced self very quickly.

Thank you Leon!

I’m so grateful that I found Leon online and reached out to him when I did. Leon has offered me genuine support and the guidance I needed to take control of my life again, and it’s been one of the best things I’ve done for myself. Highly recommend!

Being a polynesian, it’s quite sad to say we deal with A LOT of things on our own and struggle to reach out for help. When I realised my mental health was at the edge of everything, it affected my life and everything around me. Leon has made me see the ins and outs of how things are and it’s given me the power to be independently stronger. I cannot thank Leon enough for the on going support, reassurance but most importantly lessons! I can only pray my fellow people reach out and know, it’s okay not to be okay and this is your time to shine mentally! More...

Depression Counselling

5 stars to this legend, and when i say legend i am referring to Leon, every therapist is amazing in his own way but Lean is something else, i have been seeing him for a while, and i can feel the difference in my everyday life, when i contacted Leon at start i was in a particular place of my life, i was anxious, depressed, confused and sad, sad for who i really was and how people was dealing with me, and now , Leon teached me with patience and incomparable intelligence how to respect myself, he boosted my self-esteem, he showed me how to deal with people, how to manage my emotions and many other things, of course nothing happens straight away, the process takes work,collaboration and time but if you are willing to make a difference in your like, my dear friend ,you are to the right place, and you will netrually feel it. Good luck to whoever will start a new journey with Leaon, i promess you won't be disappointed. More...

I have suffered from anxiety my whole life and have seen psychologists since a young age. I never felt like I was getting result based treatment from psychologists, but felt I was simply expressing how I was feeling to an expensive ear. After year of feeling weighed down by my anxiety I made the choice to get in contact with Leon. I was at a point in my life where my anxiety was taking over and making this choice was a huge step to changing my life. Leon has been fantastic to work with. He genuinely cares about his clients and offers real, active solutions. I've been able to drastically reduce my anxiety and communicate better with my loved ones within such a short time frame, in comparrison to years of work with psychologists with little to no results. I highly recommend Leon as a coach and a positive step forward toward a happier life. More...

I first contacted Leon when I was in a particularly bad place. On the very first 10 minute phone call I felt comfortable with him. Having been seeing Leon for a couple of months, my symptoms are very much under control and I am feeling so much better. It is hard to believe the transformation in such a short time. Looking forward to a positive future is a much better approach for me than previous therapies I had tried in the past. Thank you Leon! More...

Working with Leon has made such a positive change for my mental health in such a short amount of time. I was intimidated to seek help but I'm so happy I did because I feel like myself again.

Life Coaching

Leon is an encouraging and insightful Psychology Professional and Life Coach. I initially searched on Bark for a Life Coach in order to work on my weaknesses in memory, among other weaknesses I thought were holding me back as a professional, and he happened to be the first one to call me. Being interstate, he was very accommodating on our introductory call and was happy to consult via Zoom meetings. Leon was incredibly effective at dissecting different areas to work on such as sleep, nutrition, and he even used some of his business knowledge to cover areas such as management, and most importantly, provided and worked with me on a game plan to turn good habits into reality. I highly recommend people to reach out to Leon if they need help with life skills, especially if they have things going on mentally from keeping them from performing at their very best and enjoying life because of his emphasis on the psychology of being the best version of yourself.

Meeting Leon, he’s an extremely welcoming and compassionate person. He will go beyond what you would expect in terms of the level of care he will give.

I’ve seen other psychologists in the past and it never worked out. I always came out worse than I walked in and was very discouraged to going to see someone else.
Until I had gotten told about ‘Be Happy Again’. I thought I’d give it a shot, and I’m so glad I did.

I’ve had anxiety for a number of years and a crippling fear of flying. In a short time I can say I’ve been more in control of my mind than I’ve ever been, thanks to Leon. I couldn’t recommend more giving ‘Be Happy Again’ a shot.

I would recommend Leon as a therapist for anxiety or depression, he’s such a personable guy , he made my partner and I feel so welcome and so at ease , right off the bat . The results that my partner has gotten in such a very short time , is all due to Leon’s positive outlook on life , and that has transferred to my partner. So in summary Leon is top draw in his field and would recommend him in the future. Thank you Leon for all your help , my partner & I truly appreciate it. More...

16 April 2020

I was blessed to be referred to Leon from a friend. I must say I was nervous about
trying something different. Dealing with a very difficult traumatic time from my past I needed to find someone I felt comfortable with. Someone I could open up to and trust with my deepest feelings. Leon is very calming, nurturing and we connected on a level I never thought possible. The amazing level of care, patience, compassion, guidance and understanding was exactly what I needed. As anxious as I was to talk to someone about a past experience I knew I was in a safe environment with no pressure. I would definitely refer you to Leon if you are looking for a compassionate and skilled person to listen and really understand your story and help you to move forward. Leon has helped me in ways I didn’t believe at the time was possible. More...
