LGBT Issues (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender)

As society slowly changes their views towards members of the LGBT community, more and more gay men, lesbians, bisexual people and transgendered people are seeking therapy.

Unfortunately desite the changing views of society, prejudice in society still exists. Dealing with this prejudice, coming out to one’s family and society and sorting out who you really are in the face of social expectations and pressures, can lead to higher levels of depression and anxiety for the LGBT community. Being openly gay or transgender in the workplace or in public is not always easy. Counselling can help manage the choices and emotions that are faced by LGBT people.

In addition to this, much of what a gay, lesbian, bisexual or transgendered person might bring to counselling can be basically the same as what a straight person would bring. Gay couples fight over many of the same things straight couples fight about and depression and self-esteem issues exist no matter what your sexual orientation/identity.

StartPoint Counselling offers counselling for the LBGT community without judgement. I accept and support the individual’s right to live their lives in the manner that they desire. I do not regard LGBT issues to be something that needs to be cured.
