Therapy for Gay Men

Being a part of the LGBTQIA+ community is a beautiful thing, but for some it does not come without its challenges - discrimination, bullying, feeling 'abnormal' among a number of other challenges. In fact, LGBTQ+ folx are more than twice as likely to experience a mental health challenge than heterosexuals.

 

This is not because being LGBTQIA+ is a mental disorder, but due to the often adverse experiences and messages heard about us that can lead to things like negative thinking, feelings of low self-worth or of being abnormal, self-hatred because of one's sexual or gender orientation (internalized homophobia/transphobia), family and societal rejection among other things.

 

The good news is that you are not alone and help is available to support you through these difficulties! This is your safe space to discuss the challenges you are facing. Even if you are not sure about your sexual or gender identification - that is ok. Together we can explore and discover your true self.
