As a professional, I take pride in my ethical practice and thrive on finding solutions with my clients. I enjoy working in an environment of discovery and research, as it allows me to constantly learn and challenge my own thinking. As a professional, I’m constantly questioning and looking for answers that improve the lives of my clients.
A Short Biography
Leona and 2Live
Professional development and the foundation of 2live Psychotherapy
To live is the rarest thing in the world. Most people exist, that is all.
To keep exploring...
… To keep learning. For which I’m in the right industry. It’s pretty straight forward really, and forward is the direction I want to keep going, the past is an exquisite mine for learning from, but you must do something with this resource to really make your own future and 2 live as no other can.
My passion is always to climb higher and know more. I love to get out and about and reflect on my day or my week working with amazing people, who have survived so much and now are brave enough to get up and 2 live again.
An old Scout leader once told me I was like a sponge for “how to’s” and that I’d always be hungry for another trek. I love the idea of adventure but I’m incredulous to know how we can map 13.5 billion light years out in space but we haven’t fully come to understand how we ourselves work emotionally or cognitively, and this will be one of my realms for discovery.
My passion allows me “2 live” in the moment and to cherish and be grateful for all that I have, to enjoy and get satisfaction from my work and cherish my loving and supportive family, both human and canine alike.
Every day I work with people setting goals for change and development. I get ideas from my clients all the time and that’s the beauty of my work. I like new challenges, setting and staying on my own agenda. My personal growth goals at the moment are focused on only saying positive things about others. This is a nod to my late uncle Seamus, a legend in his own lifetime and who gave me a love for golf, which reminds me, I need to get some lessons #goalnumber2! I love to be out of bed each morning to see the sun rise, a work in progress since July. I’ve only missed a couple so far and it’s easier in winter!
While on my morning walks with the dogs, I reflect a lot and create new goals. A new goal that came to me when I was remembering my very special sister, who I carry with me each day in my heart. So my goal is to make this as loving a home as possible, with no self-doubt, criticism or old lingering grievances, she was, after all my number one fan and encourager.
My last goal for 2020 is to make time to be creative, I love working with my hands and making something crafty and this ties in to my work goals, watch this space for a new client diary, coming in 2021 and some new online trainings!
