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 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.

I have worked with all ages, been a Family therapist in an LGBT + foundation and in CAMHS.
What informs my practice is a concern for respecting and valuing difference and the importance of caring communication in all relationships. We work together to bring about your own awareness of what needs to change in order move on in your life. Sometimes we are overwhelmed at what is happening to us, or we feel we have no control over our own lives. We can explore new ways of understanding ourselves and our relationships so that we can influence or even change our future.

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.

Although older than many, I bring decades of life experience to my counselling. I have experienced most 'rites of passage' and find that my wide experience enables me to work sympathetically and non-judgementally with my clients: there's nothing you can tell me that will shock me!
