There can be many reasons for seeking counselling in issues concerning homosexuality, bisexuality, gender identity, trans and queer. It is often about the norms of our society and power structures making it hard to live as you want or have equal possibilities as others.
There can be a few worries that you have as an LGBTQ person, like for example that parents don’t always understand or respect that you want to live in a different way than they do. Oftentimes people can be afraid of society’s possibly negative attitude towards LGBTQ people. Sometimes you worry too much in advance. One can get caught up in consideration and avoid showing who you really are.
Being subject to threats and violence in close relationships, either by a partner or by parents, is something that can be hard to talk about. Hate crimes in the street, around pubs and gay venues is another hazard for LGBTQ people. As a homo-, bi-, trans- or queer person there’s often an insecurity about where to turn and what support society can give. We give you support and guidance in these situations.
To learn to sort out, process and talk about your feelings and troubles with someone is a starting point in being able to handle difficult situations, feel better and to be able to claim the space and direction you want in life.
