LGBT / Gay Counselling
When seeking therapy and counselling, it is imperative to feel supported and feel able to speak freely in order to truly benefit from the therapeutic experience. This is especially true for individuals who suffer from emotional and mental health issues and an LGBT orientation.
Whatever the issue, the usefulness of the sessions is likely to be enhanced by seeing a therapist who understands how your internalised experience of sexual identity may impact on the issues with which you are dealing.
