Talking Spaces

Gay Affirmative Therapy

As a Gay affirmative therapist, I use a blend of person-centred and psychodynamic therapeutic models from a non-traditional perspective, always giving president to the LGBT+ therapeutic affirmative guidelines of ethical practice.

An affirmative approach regards homophobia as the pathological variable in the development of certain symptomatic conditions within the LGBT+ community.

As a therapist, I offer strategies for managing anxiety and depression, substance misuse and concerns over coming out to friends and family, as well as other mental health challenges faced within the LGBT+ community.

If you are looking for a therapist with deep respect and understanding of the lived experiences of LGBT+ people, please contact us for an appointment”
