LGBT Couples Therapy
There is a wider acceptance of difference in the UK nowadays. However, evidence still suggests that people in the LGBT community are more likely to have to work harder to maintain their mental health. There are still many challenges to face for gay men, lesbians and people from the LGBTQ community living in a heteronormative culture. This is where LGBT couple therapy can help.
It is probably no great surprise that emotional intimacy is a goal for all couples regardless of gender orientation. Both same-sex and heterosexual couples tend to want better communication, the sharing of values, the desire to feel heard, understood and supported by their partners
However, internalised shame and guilt as a result of concealing sexual orientation may negatively impact how comfortable many same-sex partners feel expressing emotional intimacy. Also, for too many same-sex partners, the strain of living with uncertainty and inconsistent messages about societal acceptance about their right to marry has taken its toll both socially and psychologically. These messages have often led to confusion amongst gay and lesbian couples who might struggle with whether to embrace the ‘typical’ symbols of heteronormative commitment
Our LGBT couples’ therapists are aware of the common differences in regard to the issues that get layered into the relationship experiences due to sexual identity. Additionally, the problems that commonly occurring in gay and lesbian relationships, such as commitment stages, norms regarding monogamy and differing levels of HIV risks, that are not generally present for heterosexual couples.
So if you are experiencing problems in your relationship and could use some professional help to get you back on track. We provide LGBT couples therapy via Zoom, with have availability as soon as tomorrow.
How LGBT Couples Therapy Can Help
Have you been feeling disconnected from your partner or spouse? Do you miss having safe, genuine, intimate communication? Are you worried that you’re growing apart from each other, having less sex or no sex at all and don’t know how to bridge the physical and emotional gap?
Good relationships are central to our enjoyment of life. Good communication skills are the foundation of good relationships. Without the ability to talk honestly and compassionately about the more vulnerable aspects of our relationships, our relationships become more limited and unsatisfactory
During LGBT couples’ therapy you will learn new skills about how to communicate on difficult topics with your partner in a way that brings you closer together rather than further apart.
Online couples’ therapy is a highly effective way for you to address and resolve your relationship issues. It provides a convenient, safe and confidential space for you to work through your relationship challenges with the help of a professional couple Therapist.
It can feel like a big step taking the decision to talk to someone else about the issues in your relationship, especially as one of you might be resistant to counselling. However, rest assured; couples’ therapy is not about who is right or wrong, it's about open discussion and helping you both trying to achieve the outcome you want.
Our LGBT couple therapists have helped hundreds of couples resolve the issues between them in a calm, amicable way. We provide understanding, support, advice and guidance to enable you to move forward more positively, unless you explicitly tell us you would like help to separate.
