Sexual Orientation and Gender Identity

Parents often find it very difficult to cope when a child 'comes out' and informs them that their sexual orientation is not the direction the parents had assumed was 'the norm'. Handling this predicament requires great psychological skill in order to help both sides adjust and move forward in a positive way, and our therapists can be of assistance at this stage.

It's a complex area and therefore only a specialist with the right kind of in-depth expertise will end up most likely not doing more harm than good when consulted.

How can we help?

Clinical Partners have a team of Psychiatrists, Psychologists and Psychotherapists who are experienced in supporting individuals facing issues round sexual orientation and identity and they will be able to offer full support and advice for you, your partner and your family.

By calling our Admissions Counsellor on 0203 326 9160 you will be able to talk in confidence about your situation and we can recommend a specialist to assist you.

Sexual Identity and Gender Identity

Our gender identity is about what we feel our gender is.

Mostly if somebody is heterosexual (only ever attracted to the 'opposite sex') they don't worry much about their sexual identity. Similarly if you have a female-looking body and feel like a woman, or a male-looking body and feel like a man, you might never wonder about your 'gender identity'. However, a lot of us, at some point or another, have sexual feelings about someone of the same sex, or feel that we don't completely match with the ideas society has about what it means to be a woman or a man. If those feelings are difficult at all then it can be useful to talk about them in therapy.

  • Many thanks for this and all your work in helping us get here far more swiftly than we have managed with the NHS.
