Gay, Lesbian & Bisexual Therapy
Therapy with gay, lesbian and bisexual clients is, of course, in a general sense no different from that with heterosexual clients; it is the exploration of a person's experience which is always unique to them, whatever their sexual orientation. Nevertheless some clients feel more comfortable knowing that their therapist has a particular understanding and familiarity with the gay community and the gay-specific issues with which they may be faced.
I have spent many years working with people of all sexual orientations; I previously worked as a counsellor at the Terrence Higgins Trust; and I am deeply committed to the principles of a gay affirmative therapy.
Some of the issues with which I work include:
- coming out
- identity issues
- gay lifestyle issues
- gay parenting issues
- sex 'addiction' and compulsive sexual behaviour
- living with HIV
- sexual, physical and emotional abuse survival
- relationship issues
- negotiated non-monogamy
