Support for LGBT+ students of counselling & psychotherapy
We have recognised a local need for this, and it is recognised nationally though the organisation Pink Therapy, who host a mentoring scheme.
Through our experience and training we are aware that it is often the LGBTQ+ students themselves that end up 'educating' their cohort about issues related to their diverse identity, and potential becoming the 'go to' or 'poster child' for entire LGBT+ communities. Many training courses have examples of and built-in heteronormative assumptions. These key facts impact on these students and changes the dynamic of their training experience.
We aim to provide support, when needed, to trainee counsellors/psychotherapists who have an identity that’s under the LGBTQ+ umbrella. If you would benefit from support with issues arising in your training that are linked to your sexual or gender identity please contact us.
