Counselling to Empower Queer Individuals (Online or in-person)

Counselling to Empower Queer Individuals (Online or in-person)

Members of the LGBTQ2S+ community often struggle with finding appropriate support services since not all service providers are knowledgeable concerning the issues that queer people face.

You have a safe space

I offers you safe space where you can explore your story and have the freedom to be yourself. In our collaboration, you can explore a variety of topics, such as:

  • Exploring your gender and sexual identity
  • Recovery from past trauma whether it is systemically or individually
  • Dealing with toxic family members or friends in an empowered way
  • Finding empowering ways to navigate experiences of oppression
  • Managing social anxiety or other mental health issues due to the experience of oppression

You find solutions to empower yourself

Counselling is a process in which we will collaborate to achieve profound changes. As the client, you define the goals you want to achieve with your process. As your counsellor, I listen to your story and support you in finding the answers your need within yourself. I might suggest tools I consider beneficial for you. I will collaborate with you so that you can achieve your goals.

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 connected with your inner resources and increase capacities to deal with the world as it is. As a result, you will feel more aligned with yourself, more joyful and empowered to be yourself.

Counselling for People in Unhealthy Relationships

Individual Counselling Session

Do you relate to this?

If you are in an unhealthy relationship, you may feel confused and full of self-doubt. You may not know what is the best step to take. While you love your partner,  you do not know how to be around them. You may have a sense that something is off but each time you want to address it, your partner ignores you. Maybe you feel drained and exhausted because you are used to walk on eggshells trying to prevent the next conflict.

What could you get out of counselling?

While being in an unhealthy relationship is painful, counselling can help you to gain clarity and deal with your situation in an empowered way. In our sessions, you will have a safe space where you can share your stories without being judged. And you do not have to do it not alone because I will be your empathic witness.

What are your benefits if you choose counselling?

Through the process, you will:

  • Increase your self-awareness about yourself and your relationship
  • Learn to discern healthy from unhealthy relationship behaviours
  • Release painful emotions
  • Explore your needs and dreams
  • Work through your inner conflicts

As a result, you will feel empowered do deal with your relationship and make choices that are for your best.

We intend to make counselling affordable to as many people as possible. If you experience financial constraints, please ask for our sliding scale.
