2live Psychotherapy will utilise your lived experience to find the right solutions for you in the therapeutic process.

Leona will work collaboratively with you to set therapeutic goals and determine the time and pace that will afford the changes you want to come about.

Take the First
Step

Often, people find it easier to talk to a professional therapist than a friend or family member, as your counsellor is not personally involved in your situation.

A therapist can offer impartial empathy and compassion, and will never take what you say personally.

Why Psychotherapy ?

Life and work pressures exist. We all have unsolved personal issues that taint our perspective, how we operate on a day to day basis and how we find solutions to problems. No one escapes experiencing stressful or painful life circumstances.

At one point or another in life, our thoughts and feelings overpower us and many find it difficult to understand or move through it. Mental Health Training and education programmes at work can pre-empt and combat this overwhelm.

Psychological psychotherapy programmes teach invaluable life skills to help individuals and teams navigate difficult life and work circumstance before crisis ensues.

Individuals

Individual Psychotherapy can be accessed for a number of reasons :

• Unexpected and unwanted life crisis such as traumatic events, dysfunctional family experiences, bereavement, relationship breakdown, injury or accident.

Couples & Families

At 2live Psychotherapy, generally the couple or family attend together, however at times it can be useful to meet with individual partners/siblings/child(ren) at the beginning of treatment in order to fully understand the situation presenting. Ultimately it is the couple/family who decide what is best for them.

For relationship therapy sessions, each person is given the opportunity to communicate the different parts of their story that they are bringing to the relationship. This includes any avoidance or ambivalence, anxiety, resentment, frustration or other feelings that may be present, while still acknowledging the love, history, commitment, and friendship shared in the relationship.

2live Psychotherapy is here to support relationships, and is happy to work with all couples and families including non-traditional and poly relationships and is LGBTQ friendly and informed.

It is important to understand secrets are not tolerated between one member of a couple/family and the therapist. Should the therapist be put in such a position for any reason other than offering support or advice as to how the person may communicate with their partner/family, the individual will be asked to disclose the secret. Should this fail to occur, the therapeutic relationship will be terminated.
