coming out

Sometimes our sexuality, sexual desires and gender identity can leave us feeling confused and unsure of who we are. Accepting ourselves can be a lot more difficult than it seems. It can be quite lonely when you're trying to figure out who you are or what you should do, especially if you're faced with pressure around you to conform and the likelihood of humiliation or bullying by others if you come out.

The coming out process begins when we start to recognise our attitudes and feelings toward our own sexuality and gender. Because there are social and family 'norms' governing most aspects of our lives, it can often seem that our sexuality or gender is at odds with what a lot of other people believe is 'normal' or 'right'. Sexual counselling will help you challenge these social conditionings and enable you to decide for yourself what is right for you.

Sexual counselling is a safe place to explore your sexuality, sexual feelings, gender identity and relationship desires in order to make sense of it all. I will help you explore what makes you tick and enable you to make choices for what is best for you. Together we will also consider the steps and strategies you need to keep safe.
