LGBT+ AFFIRMATIVE THERAPY FOR CLIENTS
LGBT+ affirmative therapy is about having a true understanding of the specific issues and challenges that LGBT+ people face, plus knowledge of the barriers that many LGBT+ people face when trying to access health and therapeutic services, as well as being truly accepting of LGBT+ people's identities. It goes beyond simply being ok with LGBT+ people or being fine with working with that community. It's much more in-depth than that and in the present day every ethical therapist should be LGBT+ affirmative.
As a therapist and as a human being I am fully LGBT+ affirmative. I don't mind sharing that I am LGBT+, which means I have a lived experience to draw on in addition to the knowledge and skills that I'm able to utilise when working with LGBT+ clients. As a global authority on working with LGBT+ clients, I have trained thousands of people on the topic, helping therapists to provide inclusive, accessible, and affirmative services to LGBT+ clients.
If you are LGBT+ then I fully welcome, embrace and accept you for who you are. You will receive a compassionate, understanding, inclusive, accessible service where you are free to express who you are without the need to edit parts of your identity or your life.
