2diverse provide expert mental health support for autistic* people and psychology based support for those who live, love and work with them – partners, family members, friends, colleagues, employers, carers, supporters, etc.
Whoever you are, we listen carefully to make sure we understand your needs and your strengths, as well as the context in which you live and work, and we make every effort to tailor our support accordingly.
*Please note we don’t offer diagnostic assessments but can signpost you to local services who do.
Autistic individuals live in a world that’s designed to suit people who are not autistic. As a result, they face many challenges that are often compounded by a lack of understanding and support from those around them. We therefore encourage all our clients, whatever their neurology, to consider situations from a standpoint that affirms autism and autistic people, and recognises a person’s strengths and capacity to thrive in the right setting. We focus on helping clients deal with their challenges through improving communication and strengthening their key relationships, enhancing mental health and well-being in the process.
2diverse is headed up by Sarah Pagdin, a chartered counselling psychologist with extensive professional and personal experience in the field of mental health and autism. Sarah has a passion for facilitating communication between autistic and non-autistic people whether at home or in the workplace. Sarah’s son, Alex, works alongside her contributing ideas and insights from his own experience as a young autistic person. 2diverse also have many connections within the autistic community and with other professionals working in this field which gives us access to a wide range of resources we can draw on in our work.
2diverse are based in Warrington, Cheshire, but work with clients further afield using online platforms for consultations. Due to the Covid-19 pandemic all our work now takes place online. We’ve already got lots of experience working like this and there are plenty of ways we can help if you need to adjust to doing things a little differently. If you’d like a chat about how this could work for you please get in touch.
