Effective Therapy from Psychologists

Central and East London

LGBT

If you are a lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgendered (LGBT) or unsure about your sexuality and thinking about seeking therapy, it will be important to you that your therapist understands and affirms your sexuality and lifestyle. In the past too often LGBT people have faced discrimination and an overly pathologising stance from their therapist. The situation is far better now, but there remain pockets of poor practice that can put LGBT people off seeking therapy.

We have all worked with LBGT clients for many years on a wide range of issues to do with sexual and emotional well-being.

Our approach to you will be affirming and respecting, and will aim to promote sexual and emotional well-being. If there is something we do not understand we will always ask you so that we can be sure we are fully in the picture about what is going on in your life. We also work with same-sex couples wanting therapy (please see Couple Therapy page).
