LGBTIQ+ Counselling in Exeter and Torquay

Confidential, safe, and friendly

Mental health support for LGBTIQ+ people

People who identify as LGBTIQ+ – lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, intersex, queer/questioning, or any other sexual or gender identity – can often find it hard to access or reach out for personal, one-to-one counselling or psychotherapy.

If you’re an LGBTIQ+ person, you might need additional support to cope with issues surrounding your gender identity or sexuality, including coming out, bullying, discrimination, homo/bi/transphobia, your religious faith, your work, or even where you live or who you live with.


But while anyone can experience mental health issues at any time, the issues you’re facing can trigger suffering from some of these issues:

  • Social or general anxiety
  • Depression
  • Low-self esteem
  • Self-harm
  • Eating or other disorders
  • Loneliness or rejection
  • Suicidal thoughts

Confidential, safe, and experienced LGTBIQ+ Counselling

Counselling can be a genuine lifeline for many LGBTIQ+ people who face emotional distress with any issues surrounding their gender identity or sexuality. But it can be hard to find a counsellor who you can trust and who understands the issues you’re facing and how difficult it can be to take those first steps in effective counselling and support.

One of the essential components of good counselling is the relationship between client and counsellor. And as an LGBTIQ+ person, you need a confidential, safe, and friendly environment with a non-judgmental, empathetic counsellor who understands your individual needs.
