LGBTQ Therapy

LGBTQ (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer or questioning) people experience more mental health problems than 'straight' people. Hardly surprising with all the stigma and differential treatment you experience as a sexual minority - all of which can trigger depression and anxiety.

Therapy can help you explore your sexual orientation, or just help you cope with any LGBTQ or intersex life struggles.
