Although society is generally more accepting of diverse genders and sexualities, people who identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender (LGBT) can often face extra challenges. I have a particular interest in supporting individuals, couples and families who are struggling with these issues.

You may want to talk about:

  • Concerns or confusion about your own sexuality or gender identity
  • Coming out as LGBT to families and friends
  • Finding out that somebody close to you is LGBT
  • Adopting or conceiving a child within a same-sex partnership
  • Difficulties arising with co-parents or donors

My stance in working with LGBT clients is “LGBT-affirmative”. This means that I do not see being LGBT as something to be challenged, but as an integral part of a person that commands respect. I am also aware that some people struggle if they, or their families, do not conform to the prevailing norms of society. I aim to hold these different perspectives in mind while working on these issues.
