Anxiety, depression, lack of self-care or self-esteem, relationship issues and other mental health matters concern all of us, but for LGBTQI+ individuals, it becomes even more tricky.
We live in a heterosexist world with an infinite variety of shapes and scales of LGBTphobias & stigmas affecting us on a daily basis and contributing to internalised discrimination, shame and mental health issues specifically related to the unfriendliness and lack of acceptance of the world we live in.
The struggle doesn’t stop here. As anyone else can face difficulties and doubts about seeking help, LGBTQI+ individuals often have the additional worry of getting assistance by someone who not only won’t reiterate some forms of discrimination but will also be educated and prepared to accept, respect, understand & nurture them in their gender and sexual identity as much as in their personal identity.
This is why I have decided to offer some concessions for LGBTQI+ individuals, either face to face in Bristol or online from anywhere, both in English & French.
