Therapy for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Questioning People
Therapy for Lesbian, Gay and Bisexual People in Manchester
If you are looking for therapy for lesbian, gay and bisexual people in Manchester then I might be the therapist for you. You are going to want a therapist who gets where you're coming from.
You need someone who understands your social context and is clear about the different challenges you may face in a heteronormative world.
I'm based in Cheadle, just a couple of miles away from Didsbury, Stockport, Gatley and The Heatons.
Not just about your sexuality
Your sexuality may be relevant to the issue you bring, or it may not, but you can work with me knowing I have a deep understanding of the challenges you may have faced up to this point in your life.
I've worked with many gay, lesbian and bisexual clients and often sexuality has nothing to do with what's going on. It may alter your frame of reference and you need to feel comfortable working with someone who "gets it".

Coming out can be hard
You might be unsure of your sexuality or need support to come out. This is an area I've worked in for many years and have helped queer clients across the age spectrum come to terms with who they are and tell the people that they want to tell.
There will be no pressure from me for you to do anything that feels uncomfortable. We can talk about what your sexuality means to you and how you want to go about making it part of your everyday life.
Whilst the evidence is that coming out can be really great for the mental health of gay, lesbian and bisexual people it might not be appropriate, possible or even safe to do so in certain circumstances.
Therapy gives you space to talk about this and explore what you want to do.
Counselling for lesbian, gay and bisexual people
You could be having difficulty with family or your partner or need to talk about sex with someone who will be perfectly comfortable. I can help you. I've trained with Pink Therapy and have much experience of what can get in the way of you having a rich, fulfilling life.
Couples Therapy for Lesbian and Gay People
The main thing that I want to convey to you is that the fact that you are in a same sex relationship makes no difference to me when I work with couples.
There may be issues related to your sexuality that have come up in the relationship, but mostly I find that couples are couples, whatever the gender of their partner.
I have spent many years working with same sex relationships and know that Imago Relationship Therapy can be a potent and impactful way of working regardless of sexuality.
