We support the right of the LGBTQIA+ community and their families to have a sense of belonging and connection, to live with safety and dignity and to enjoy healthy relationships.
All of our services are available to LGBTQIA+ individuals and we provide a safe, supportive environment for couples and individuals to work on their relationship concerns as well as their own personal issues.
LGBTQIA+ individuals and couples often have similar issues to everyone, but significant exceptions are the prejudice, marginalisation, bullying, and lack of acceptance, including emotional and physical abuse, experienced by many in the community. These difficult challenges often began in childhood or adolescence and can play a major role in adult interpersonal struggles in one-on-one or in couple relationships.
How to know if a service is LGBTQIA+ inclusive:
- Look for visible signs of inclusivity, such as rainbow flags and posters, on the website and in the offices
- Ask about the experience of counsellors and other service providers, especially how much work they have done within the LGBTQIA+ community
- Check the organisation’s website for their commitment to the LGBTQIA+ community
