Being different can be very difficult, even in today’s world. Sexuality is still considered taboo by many people and growing up or realizing later in life that you do not conform to ‘the norms’ of a heterosexual world can be intimidating and could make you want to hide or change who you are. Often these norms deeply affect the way we see the world and how we relate to ourselves and others.
How can I help?
Learning to accept, appreciate and love ourselves is fundamental to living a satisfying life. I offer a tailored counselling and psychotherapy service for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender (LGBT) clients, which allow them to explore and understand underlying issues which might include sex and relationship difficulties, depression, low self-esteem, bullying and addiction and the difficulty of coming out and of dealing with gender non-conformity.
I provide a safe space where you can explore complex and painful thoughts and feelings and I will support you through to working on your short and long-term goals. I will also help you discover the tools and develop inner resources that will support you in your difficult life situations and help you enjoy your life to the fullest.
In addition I can help you explore your sense of identity and navigate through the challenges of dating and same sex relationships, alongside all the general challenges of starting and sustaining relationships.
