Counselling

Lancs LGBT

Counselling can provide you with an opportunity to talk with someone who is trained to listen. Counselling can help you understand feelings that you may be experiencing now, or from the past, and enable you to look at them in a more manageable way. Counselling can help you discover your potential and enable you to find your own solutions.

All our volunteer counsellors have lived experience of being LGBTQ+ and can help you to understand all aspects of who you are as an individual. All our volunteer counsellors are DBS checked and are members of the BACP (British Association for Councillors and Psychotherapists).

Issues you might want to discuss:

  • Depression and anxiety
  • Isolation
  • Gender or sexual identity issues
  • Self-confidence
  • Self-acceptance
  • Self-esteem
  • Coming out
  • Sexual issues
  • Relationship difficulties
  • Abuse

Meet the Counsellors

Hi, I’m Tadgh. As a Counsellor, I blend Person-Centred and Psychodynamic methods. I’ve supported clients through addiction phases, notably chemsex, and have tackled issues of anxiety, trauma, gender, and sexuality. Rooted in Person-Centred practices, I adjust to each client’s specific needs. With my recent Master’s in psychotherapy, I’m poised to help you achieve your therapy objectives and unearth underlying causes.

Hello, I’m Owen, a Person-centred Counsellor, and I’m here to support you on your journey towards personal growth and self-discovery. With a deep commitment to creating a safe and empathetic space, I believe that everyone possesses the capacity for healing and self-fulfilment. My approach is rooted in the principles of Carl Rogers’ person-centred therapy, where I prioritize empathy, genuineness, and unconditional positive regard, with additional training in other forms of therapy.
