I am particularly interested in working with trauma and have specialist experience working for an LGBT organisation.
I practice an integrative, relational style of therapy which draws on different approaches to provide counseling suited to the individual needs of the client. I have experiences working with a range of clients and issues. I have also gained specialist experience within the LGBT community. I am currently working online due to the pandemic but I will return to face to face practice as soon as possible.

I am proudly LGBTQ + and have an open, inclusive approach.
Hi I'm Lizzie (she/they), I am fully qualified and accredited by the NCS and DBS checked. I am experienced in working with abuse, trauma, anxiety, depression, self-esteem issues, identity and have worked with carers. Often there are many factors that play into the emotional distress that you may be experiencing. The most important thing is that we can establish a trusting relationship where you feel safe enough to start engaging with whatever is troubling you. I am here to help you move forward with your life, to make sense of your emotions, trust yourself and start living a fulfilled life. Email or call me now to have a free chat.

I have received additional training, in working with clients from the Black, Asian and LGBTQ + communities, and use affirmative practice.
I am a qualified person-centred counsellor and psychotherapist based in Manchester and offering online counselling to the UK. My approach is warm and friendly and I work with care and compassion. I offer a safe space, free from judgement, where you can be yourself and explore any issues that may be causing you confusion, discomfort or distress. You will decide what we talk about and we will always work at a pace that is comfortable for you. It is important, to me, that you feel at ease working with me, so I offer a free first session (50 minutes), so you can see how I work and decide whether you wish to continue.

I have additional specialisms in: online LGBT counselling, working with people affected by HIV, and working with relationship diversity, including polyamory and ethical non-monogamy.
At various points in our lives, we all experience feelings, thoughts and events that we find challenging. You may be feeling anxious or depressed, finding it difficult to come to terms with something that has happened in the past, or worried about what the future will bring. Perhaps you feel stuck in a difficult situation, or caught between what seem like impossible choices. You may be seeking an opportunity to think about who you are, what is important to you, and the kind of life you want to lead.

I have an extensive experience in working with and supporting the LGBTQ community and their unique life challenges like coming out, internalized homophobia, self-esteem issues and other day-to-day struggles.
My name is Marek and I am a Psychotherapist and a Sex and Relationship Therapist who works in a private practice and in a higher education institution in London. I believe therapy helps people to develop a deeper understanding of themselves and their relationships to become free of old patterns, or simply find ways to process pain or memories that have kept them feeling stuck. I strongly believe that we simply repeat what we don't repair. I have a heart and a passion for the work I do in creating effective change. My clinical experience includes working for: NHS, a community counselling services, and a suicidal respite centre.

I have personal and professional experience of working with LGBTQ + community.
Hello, I am sure this feels like a daunting prospect finding a counsellor that you can share those feelings that have been troubling you and getting in the way of the life you want to lead. I believe the connection between counsellor and client is at the heart of the process. I can offer a safe space where you can explore difficult, complicated or confusing emotions in a warm, confidential, empathic environment. We can work together to gain a greater understanding of those feelings and move forward towards lasting and positive change for your future.

Are you an LGBTQ + person and looking to gain some clarity in life? Are you struggling with your romantic relationships or trying to make sense of your past? You might find that you feel isolated, alone and are missing out on connections with loved ones. These difficult feelings can cloud the parts of your life which should bring you joy; this unhappiness can lead to further disconnect with those around us.

I deeply value the importance of working in an ethically rooted way and I am an LGBTQ + affirmative counsellor.
Hi I’m Loz, my pronouns are they/them. I believe that to create a nurturing space where you feel safe and open to explore the challenges that have brought you to counselling, I need to be the most genuine and empathetic version of myself I can be. Sharing my humanness with you is important to me and this is what guided me to become a Person-Centred counsellor. Our sessions will be led by you, allowing you to work at your own pace, while I take a gentle and holding approach to being alongside you through your journey.

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.

I am a person-centred and existentialist counsellor specialising in gender, sexuality and relationship diversity (including LGBTQIA +, kink, polyamory).
Asking for help takes courage. Maybe you want to understand yourself and your life more deeply. Maybe you are exploring your gender, sexuality, and relationships, or are curious about all the things that make you the person you are. Maybe you feel like it is hard to exist in the world because of your identity, or are struggling to find your place. Counselling provides you with a radically accepting safe space to explore and become curious about how your beliefs, your identity, and your lived experience of the world have shaped you. Together, we will create a space where you can go deep into yourself and explore who you are.

Empathic and experienced psychotherapist and counsellor, based in the Poole/Bournemouth area. I work with individual adults of all ages and also within the LGBTQ + community. My clients experience and bring a broad range of issues to therapy such as anxiety, identity issues, depression, relationships, and trauma. Trauma from our past often impacts our lives in the present and prevents us from moving forward or from being our authentic selves. Therapy cannot change the past, but it can enable us to move forward with increased resilience and can provide us with a solid foundation for lasting changes.

We all deserve to have a life that we feel secure in and a future that we can look forward to. But in reality there are times when this simply isn't the case. And so we seek therapy. It might be for help with overwhelming feelings of anxiety and depression. Or a little nagging voice at the back of the mind that says that now is the right time to talk to someone.  Or something quite clear and sudden has happened. Therapy is somewhere you can come to talk, confidentially, about whatever it is that is affecting you.

My experience working with a wide variety of psychological presentations, including bereavement, LGBTQIA +, depression, anxiety, and many others, has helped me build my skills.
I am Neil, a professional counsellor who can help you move forward. You will be able to explore anxiety, depression, abuse, childhood trauma, and other significant issues with our partnership. Despite being hidden, these issues have a significant impact on us. Understanding these hidden issues can be challenging. If you have a trustworthy, empathic, and accepting counsellor, counselling can help you cope with your challenges. If you aren't sure about taking that first step, we offer a free 30-minute consultation. It can be done via video link, phone call, or email, however you feel most comfortable

I use my lived experiences as a queer intersex person to support my work with all people, especially those who have to navigate marginalisation and the challenges this can bring for wellbeing, mental health and relationships.
I enjoy supporting people to find ways of making sense of themselves and their lives that lead to greater wellbeing. I strive to create conversations and spaces that actively address oppression, celebrate diversity and consider the challenges resulting from societal expectations of what makes a good life.

From childhood we are given messages about the ‘right’ and ‘wrong’ ways to feel, think and behave – messages that can teach us that we must hide or supress aspects of our authentic selves in order to be acceptable to others. If you’re an LGBTQ + person, your sexuality and gender might completely unrelated to what has brought you to counselling, but you still want to know that your therapist will affirm these parts of you. In my online therapy room, you are invited to be your whole uncensored self in the company of somebody who values you unconditionally and really listens. I am a queer therapist with trauma informed training.
