Counselling for gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender clients (LGBTQ+)
It is natural to struggle sometimes, everyone can find themselves wanting some help and then gender, sex and sexuality can bring its own set of challenges. Here at Nicholas Rose & Associates we offer a counselling and therapy service In Person in Chiswick or Online for gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender, queer + clients. If you’re an adolescent, young person, individual or couple looking for a counsellor with experience and understanding then you can relax knowing you are in the right place.
LGBTQ+ 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 LGBTQ+ 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 offer a team of qualified, experienced and supportive counsellors, psychologists and psychotherapists. We are a full service practice working with adults, children, adolescents, couples and families.
If you are an individual or couple who want to seek counselling or therapy with a counsellor or psychotherapist who understands the issues you want to bring to counselling then please Contact Nicholas Rose & Associates for an initial appointment.
Gay (LGBTQ+) Couples Counselling
Couples in same sex relationships face both the same challenges as heterosexual couples but also a number of potential specific issues including societal pressure, family and friend support, discrimination, power, parenting and relationship structure.

Couples Counselling can be a positive experience at any stage of a relationship, as relationships pass through various stages new challenges and possibilities arise where counselling can facilitate growth, change and alleviate conflict. Very often, it is helpful when one or both of you are feeling misunderstood or isolated, or when you identify negative and destructive patterns.
Couples counselling otherwise referred to as Relationship Counselling or, Marriage Counselling is an opportunity to air hurt and angry feelings in a safe, private and controlled setting and can help free you to find new, more positive, ways of relating.

Gay (LGBTQ+) Counselling and Psychotherapy
Shorter term counselling and longer term psychotherapy are available.
In our assessment session we will clarify the issues on which we can seek to address in the therapy. For many clients this usually involves an initial commitment to ten sessions either on a weekly or fortnightly basis. However where there are multiple issues or where significant issues arise during the therapy a longer-term model will be appropriate.
