However, I specialise in trauma informed work with LGBTQIA experiences, alongside grief, overwhelm and high sensitivity.
Welcome. Whatever is going on for you, whatever it is that you would like to be different – I offer a supportive relationship to help you find a deeper understanding and acceptance about yourself and what you are experiencing. This process can help illicit the change needed for more authentic and peaceful living. I believe in the potential - and, at some level - knowing in each of us to move towards what we need in life - but stuff gets in the way, we push down on this knowing in order to protect ourselves, and this causes suffering. Counselling can be helpful to us as we, compassionately, find our way back/forward to ourselves.

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.

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.

I offer adult psychology sessions and specialise in male, LGBTQIA + and children's mental health as well as providing clinical supervision and consultation sessions for parents/schools to increase understanding of behaviours.
Hello and thank you for looking into my profile. It can be challenging finding the right therapist amidst a sea of warm faces and shiny profiles full of experience. However, I firmly believe that like any relationship, the therapeutic one needs to feel like a 'good fit' too. This outlook forms the ethos of my therapy practice as a counselling psychologist where I work in collaboration with a client to bring change through the healing properties of a relationship. It is my belief that a supportive, accepting relationship allows for deeper self exploration and long-lasting change.

Would you like to change the way that you live your life? I am a qualified Cognitive Behavioural Therapist with experience of working with issues such as anxiety, depression and anger management, and I can help you to overcome your problems in an accepting, confidential and non-judgemental environment. I realise that it can be difficult to take the first step towards getting help. It's OK to feel nervous or confused about starting therapy, especially if you haven't seen a therapist before. Speaking to someone about your problems can be hard but it really is good to talk. I am LGBT + friendly.

I am a trans non binary integrative counsellor and psychotherapist, with many years of experience working in an NHS Clinical Psychology Department and private practice. In private practice, I welcome anyone who feels that psychotherapy may be of help, whether you are looking to have just a few sessions to think about a specific issue or situation, or would like to consider longer-term therapy. Depression, anxiety, relationship difficulties, illness, bereavement, self-esteem, gender and sexuality, queer identity, life-changes, are just some of the reasons why you may want to try psychotherapy.

I work with all ages and genders and have specific training and experience working with those from the LGBTQ +/GSRD community and young people age 11+.
As an experienced Cognitive Behavioural Therapist, I work collaboratively with my clients to achieve their goals. These goals may be around managing mental health conditions such as anxiety or depression or improving confidence or self esteem, working through relationship problems and major life changes or simply having the time and space to explore thoughts and feelings in a safe, confidential and non judgemental space. CBT aims to identify unhelpful thinking patterns linked to past experiences that influence how we feel and how we behave and make sustainable changes, resulting in improved decision making and wellbeing.

Whatever your reasons for being here, you are very welcome. I provide a very safe and confidential space to people from ALL walks of life. Whatever difficulty you are experiencing I can help you to gain insight into why these difficulties exist and persist. Together, we will think about your past relational experiences and how they are unconsciously influencing how you behave now. Developing a profound understanding of your unconscious self can be life changing. “The most fundamental harm we can do to ourselves, is to remain ignorant by not having the courage and the respect to look at ourselves honestly and gently.” Pema Chödrön.
