It’s All About You Wellbeing (IAAYW) directory lists complementary therapists (e.g. massage therapists), counsellors, psychotherapists, coaches and other wellbeing professionals based in the Southwest of England. They have all taken specific training and/or have experience in providing support to the diverse group of people whose identity fits under the LGBTQ+ umbrella. They also provide support to friends and family members of LGBTQ+ people who want to be confident that their chosen professional is familiar with issues relating to sexual orientation and gender identity.
When making contact with a practitioner, please let them know that you found them via It’s All About You Wellbeing.
Everyone listed has evidenced to IAAYW that they hold a recognised qualification relevant to their profession. This gives you assurance that they are trained to a recognised, professional standard and are required to work within an ethical framework.
They also give a particular undertaking to work in ways that are affirmative in relation to your individual identity and will not assume that your identity is related to your reasons for seeking support.
In the unlikely event that you need to make a complaint about a professional, please contact them direct as they will want to work out any difficulties with you or via their professional body. If, after that, you feel your complaint has not been resolved, please email Max Cohen via the Contact page.
