Do you identify as queer, non-binary, transgender, gay, or bisexual? Or are you questioning your gender or sexual identity? In this case, counselling may be helpful for you.
We give you a safe space
If you are questioning your gender identity or your sexuality or if we do not fit into the norms of the dominant group, it might be hard to find the appropriate support. Counsellors may not able to connect with your experience and they may brush you off because it is outside of their reality. You may even hear discriminative believes against queer people and may fear that it happens again. Being different in a world that holds on to traditional stereotypes is challenging and can cause inner conflicts. Freedom Counselling Calgary offers you safe space where you can explore your story and have the freedom to be yourself.
We collaborate with you to empower yourself
Counselling is a process in which we will collaborate to achieve profound changes. As your counsellor, I listen to your story and support you in finding the answers your need. I do not have the answers but I will empower you to find your own. We will work together through possible conflicts and find ways how you can deal with oppression and discrimination. It is about allowing you to explore and live who you truly are.
Counselling based on your individual needs
Everybody is unique and different, therefore no counselling process is the same. During your counselling process, we will the tools and resources that fit to your individual story, your personality and your needs. Additionally, you will become connect with your inner resources and capacities to deal with the world as it is.
We work with systemic perspective that considers your inner and outer world
Our inner world is often influenced by our outer world and vice versa. If you have experienced racism or discrimination, it influences your inner world. Counselling supports you to deal with these painful experiences in an empowering way and to recover from the influence these experiences had on your inner world.
Often, counselling means a process of profound change
This doesn’t mean that you have to become a different person, but you will gain a new perspective on yourself, your life, your relationships and our society. As a result, you will feel more aligned with yourself, more joyful and empowered to be yourself.
Affordable counselling for queer individuals
We believe in the value of counselling and want to make healing services accessible to as many people living in Canada as possible. Queer individuals still face discrimination and oppression and this may limit the access to appropriate professional health services. At $40 for a video counselling session, our intention is to offer professional mental health services to queer individuals who are committed to their healing journey.
