Dont Hide your Pride.
I am passionate about working with the LGBT community. I have experience of working at Healthy Gay Life in Birmingham since 2012. As an affirmative therapist I work with clients to develop their identity. I understand the issues faced such as coming out , cross cultural relationships , religious conflicts , transitioning or not transitioning , gender fluidity , questioning sexuality and internal homophobia.
Sexuality or Gender may not be the issue leading you into counselling. However you may feel more comfortable working with a therapist who can identify with your identity. I am that therapist and am aware from personal experience how important finding the right therapist for you is.
