I specialise with the LGBT + community, including their family and friends. I can offer a non-judgemental, gentle, accepting confidential space for you to share your issues and concerns, knowing you will not be rejected or discriminated against. I have lived experience of transgender identities, as my son is transgender . I have witnessed the high mental health conditions, suicidal ideation, including self-harm, and loss faced by LGBT + individuals that I have counselled, along with the hurdles my son has encountered during his transition. I would like to walk with you along your pathway, and consider myself privileged to do so.

uk/ for more information); living with Life-Limiting Illnesses; difficulties and challenges experienced being LGBTQ &A; and difficulties arising within mixed-race relationships.
I believe the most important thing in counselling is to develop a relationship of trust and confidence between therapist and client. I provide clients with a safe, confidential and warm space for them to reflect on the challenges they bring. Coming to counselling can be a daunting step; as a result it is that much more important to come into an accepting, empathic, non-judgemental environment. I take the view that there is no single approach that can be helpful to you in all situations. This gives more choice of how you want to look at your issues and creates flexibility to tailor therapy to your individual needs and aspirations.

Sexuality and Gender Idenity and People from the LGBTQ + Community.
I'm Jack, a BACP registered psychotherapeutic counsellor. I take a humanistic approach which places us alongside eachother. I will be led by you to create a safe and supportive space. We can generally focus on understanding your unique perspective and experiences. I also like to consider how we can accept responsibilities and explore your choices (or lack of choice). We can decide together what we’re working on; but typically we may touch on finding your strength, self-development, and ways you can grow and feel better about yourself and your situation.

I am part of the LGBT + community and identify as a cis gay man. As a consequence I have seen how life can throw many diverse LGBTQ -related challenges at us: loss, crisis, change - that cause us to question our sense of self. Yet I believe within these challenging times we have the ability to grow and develop - even flourish - through the untangling of our internal and external worlds: who we are, our authentic selves, others’ around us as well as the world in which we live.

I have worked for several years supporting transgender clients who are struggling with their emotions. I have observed that many people who identify as trans . experience a huge amount of rejection from society, and painfully, from within their families. It can be difficult to see that the problem is not that they are trans , but that other people hold prejudicial even hostile attitudes. I have often worked men who identify as "transvestites" or "crossdressers". I have noticed that questions over sexuality are common. I work with you to find your answers, whether that’s "Am I Gay or Straight?", "Am I Trans ?”or “Does it really matter”?

I recognise the importance of how our identity and neurological differences impact on how we meet the world and work positively and actively with the LGBTQIA + and neurodivergent communities.
You may be looking for a therapist to address a specific issue, perhaps an experience from the past that is impacting you now, or there may be a general feeling that something is not quite right. Many people find talking with someone, in confidence, helps them discover who they are and helps them make informed, self-loving and kinder choices. Therapy can help you discover the real you, creating awareness, acknowledging and dealing with repressed feelings and getting in touch with your innate self-worth. Which, in turn, promotes personal autonomy and the resilience to deal with life's challenges.

We can all struggle with our relationships, both sexually & emotionally, and talking about these problems can be particularly daunting. These struggles can take many forms, ranging from conflict difficulties, marital problems, pain during intercourse, a lack of desire, erectile dysfunction, sexual identity, childhood trauma affecting our adult relationships and many others. Taking the first step to seek out therapy is a difficult one, but one that could help to break the cycle we are currently playing out. I provide the same warmth and care to all members of society. LGBTQ +, kink and fetish friendly.

Counselling may be of help to you at times of crisis, to help you work through a particular problem, or to address thoughts and feelings that are interfering with your ability to live your life in the way that you want to. If you feel like you might benefit from counselling, then you probably would. Together, we can work out what you need from counselling, and we can decide between us whether I'm able to help.

I believe in the power of opening up, and while I will draw on theory and knowledge to support each individual client, I am led by the client and their individual needs. An ideal client is someone who wishes to build a therapeutic space alongside me, allowing me to facilitate safety and build trust. I am experienced at working with complex mental health needs, therefore I begin by creating a formulation of the problem with the client, and collaboratively establish their needs and personal goals. i am interested in helping others to learn about themselves through relational dynamics they experience.

I offer a confidential space to help you to resolve psychological pain; to identify and initiate significant changes; acknowledge trauma and loss; negotiate life's transitions and to manage uncertainty. Therapy is a shared exploration of your deepest concerns: we work to discern possible meanings behind suffering and to fulfill cherished aims. By having individual sessions with an experienced clinician, or, sharing honest communication in a supportive, facilitated group, you can develop increased agency, greater self-worth and resilience, courage to discern a new life-direction, and, the confidence to explore relationship issues.
