Shower sounds like its running, but it's leaking

Had this problem fixed about a year ago by my plumber...now I want to do it myself.
3 knobs on shower ...hot on left, shower head in middle, cold on right.

The water constantly runs(constant trickle stream), despite being turned off with some human elbo grease. It's like you can't get it quite tight enough to stop the leak. I remember the plumber pulled apart the works in there, and replaced something in the hot water handle...

Is this something I can fix myself? Please advise....

Pull stems out and replace Brass seats and seat washers, do not just replace the seat washers.
