As a Queer cisgender male, I have a particular interest working within the LGBTQi+ community. I work with persons that identify as male, who find themselves curious about gender and sexuality. Persons that might be asking questions and challenging binary thinking regarding identity, sexuality, sex and relationships. Persons that might be are openly gay or are generally wanting to work through the aspects of sexuality, gender and relationship diversity.

My passion is helping gay men learn tools to live amazing lives through cognitive behaviour therapy and coaching. As a fellow gay man, I know how hard life can be and how little specialist support is out there specifically for us gay men. It would be my honour to help you grow and heal on your own wonderful, individual journey. With my approach, fast, highly effective, and lasting change is easier than you think. With practice, you can literally rewire your brain and heart to love yourself and love your life deeply. And by the way, CBT, therapy and coaching can actually be fun!

As an LGBTQIA + affirmative therapist, I also work with many LGBTQIA + clients, some of whom come to therapy to explore issues relating to sexuality and gender.
Do you find it difficult to talk to those closest to you about your issues and concerns? Perhaps you don’t want to burden them or feel worried that they might judge or not understand what you are going through? I provide a safe, confidential, and non-judgemental space in which you can explore your thoughts and feelings, allowing you to understand more about yourself and your relationships with others. As an integrative counsellor, I work with a variety of therapeutic approaches and methods, and combine them to suit the needs of each individual client.

I offer counselling to people who are in some sort of transition in their lives. Often people come to me when they're feeling stuck, isolated or low. I often work with people in their twenties, thirties and forties who are facing some sort of mid-life transition. You might be weighing up what is important to you, and how to take the next steps in your life. I work with people who are often from marginalised groups, for example, LGBTQ + people and/or people from Black and ethnic minorities. You might want to find out a way to live your life that feels authentic and unblock energy to achieve your goals.

Before becoming a therapist, I volunteered for many years at Switchboard, and have always had a particular interest in working with the LGBTQ + community.
It's good to talk, but it’s even better to be listened to. Carving out the space to focus on ourselves has never been more challenging. Counselling is the chance to do exactly that, a place to build a relationship to safely explore where you are at and where you want to be. I am dedicated to helping my clients find ways forward that feel positive. I aim to support people in making decisions and to explore new possibilities where sometimes we find ourselves stuck in the same old patterns. I aim to instil confidence and help manage feelings of anxiety or low mood and to imagine a new way forward.

I work privately and at an LGBTQ + counselling service where I see a diverse group of clients, both individuals and couples.
You may be feeling down, unmotivated, anxious or angry and need a safe, impartial space to work through what's troubling you or holding you back, to find a clearer perspective on behaviour patterns and coping mechanisms that no longer serve you. I will guide and nurture you in your process so we can reflect deeply on your concerns and gain the necessary insight into your subconscious drives to discover the change that will enable you to move forward in your life and flourish as your authentic self.

The nature of my practice is unique because I identify as LGBTQ +. My position as a therapist will not just involve sympathy; I will also be able to provide a unique understanding of your situation since I've been through it myself. I believe that members of the LGBTQ + community are the best qualified to understand the needs of our community. It's important that your therapy be the beginning of a journey toward healing without judgment or shame. Therapy should be interactive, not simply a listening exercise. Together, I can help lead you through the healing process.

My own experiences of discrimination as a Queer person has shaped my trauma-informed practice.
Do you feel like you live in a world that doesn’t accept who you are? A dear friend of mine once summed up this feeling beautifully: “Being LGBTIQ+ is not my issue, it’s living in a world where others take issue with me being LGBTIQ+”. When we live in a society that does not see or respect our difference we internalize a lot of messages and beliefs about who we should, or should not, be. Trying to shape ourselves into an image that doesn’t fit isn’t just exhausting - it’s traumatizing! Hi, my name is Gavin and I identify as a gender non-conforming Queer person.

I am part of the LGBT + community and identify as cis gay man using he/him pronouns.
I believe that human wellness is multidimensional. No singular event, element or experience of living can truly cause wellness or suffering. It’s a complex interplay between various factors which make up our experience of life. With this in mind, there can be no singular therapy and counselling service that can heal all. There can be no singular psychological approach which is capable of explaining the complexity of the human experience. This is why my approach is integrative and holistic, with a collaborative style that pulls in ideas from various models and ideologies.
