About us

It's All About You Wellbeing was established in 2008 by Max Cohen to enable people in Devon and Cornwall to find LGBTQ+ -affirmative counsellors and other wellbeing practitioners. 

In 2018, colleagues David and Tina took on the management of IAAYW and Max has now taken back the reins! He is extremely grateful to them for their hard work and enthusiasm and is really looking forward to further developing this valuable resource.

Max is passionate about its value for both LGBTQ+ clients and for the professionals who work with them.


Aims for 2021

Our aim for It’s All About You Wellbeing is for it to become a resource which: 

  • Enables LGBTQ+ people to access wellbeing services that are delivered appropriately to meet their particular needs 

  • Supports practitioners in their professional development – through training, supervision, mentoring and networking 

  • Serves the LGBTQ+ communities and the therapy/wellbeing practitioners supporting them throughout Southwest England 

  • Continues to be committed to ending the practice of ’conversion therapy’

  • Becomes a Community Interest Company (CIC)

LGBTQ+ friendly counselling & wellbeing in SW England
