Gay (LGBT+) Psychotherapy in London
It is natural to struggle sometimes, everyone can find themselves wanting some help and then sexuality can bring its own set of challenges. Here at Nicholas Rose & Associates we offer a psychotherapy service face to face in Chiswick or Online for gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender clients. If you’re an individual or couple looking for a counsellor with experience and understanding then you can relax knowing you are in the right place.
LGBT+ clients come to us for many reasons, often specific to the issue of sexuality. Examples include depression and anxiety that first occurred in teenage years, difficulties in coming out, the after affects of homophobic bullying, sexual, psychological or violent abuse, low self confidence and relationship problems that they think are connected to their sexuality.
Sometimes our clients do not bring issues specific to their sexuality but prefer to meet with a therapist who is familiar in working with LGBT+ clients. Our team of therapists has experience of working with issues connected with sexuality and you can ask to see a gay therapist if you think you will feel more comfortable.
We use an integrative framework that is further informed by an existential perspective. In practice our exploration of your concerns will be based on a form of enquiry that aims to remove the impact of previously held assumptions, this is called phenomenological enquiry. In deepening our understanding we will offer you perspectives based upon the major theoretical approaches combined with a existential framework that can illuminate struggles within the context of what it means to be human.
I feel like a different person. No, I feel I now recognise the person I've been all along - and I'm proud of her. My time with Nicholas has transformed the way I view the world and how I interact with it. I'd recommend the process to anyone. Genuinely lifechanging. Nicholas was transparent re the cognitive process at work, he involved me in his application of theory and I found this very powerful. But at the same time he was full of empathy. The sessions were both healing and productive. Thank you.

Online Psychotherapy using chat or Skype
Some of our clients prefer online Psychotherapy and we can offer you a choice of chat, video or telephone based sessions. Initially we will start with an asssessment session where you can decide with your therapist if further sessions might be helpful. Usually after six sessions you will review how things are going and if you are finding the sessions helpful you continue. Sessions end when you agree with your therapist that your concerns have been addressed.
