Counselling is a place where you can feel accepted, safe and supported. It is a space to express your feelings and emotions, explore your identity. Counselling can offer an opportunity to ask questions and experience what it is like to feel empathy and be heard in a confidential, supportive environment.

If you are worrying about coming out, if you are curious about your feelings of same sex attraction, maybe you are experiencing rejection from family or friends, counselling can help.

Support for families can be helpful too. When a person comes out to their friends or family it can sometimes cause upset and worry, there may be questions that might feel difficult to ask and counselling can help with this.

I have worked with people who identify as: Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and None Binary. In addition, I have experience of working with issues such as discrimination, coming out, identity, gender dysphoria, acceptance, self-image and self-acceptance. If you have any questions that are specific to your situation, I would be happy to discuss these with you in order for us to establish whether I am the right counsellor for you. I have a network of therapists that I can refer you to if I am not the best match, my priority is to get you the best support for your needs.
