LGBTQ+ Relationship Counselling


Online LGBTQ+ Couples Counselling

While the UK is becoming more accepting of differences, evidence still points to greater mental health struggles among the LGBT community. Challenges persist for gay, lesbian, and LGBTQ individuals within a heteronormative culture. This is where LGBT couple therapy plays a crucial role.

Emotional intimacy remains a universal goal for couples, irrespective of gender orientation. Both same-sex and heterosexual couples seek improved communication, shared values, and mutual understanding and support.

However, the internalised shame and guilt stemming from concealing one's sexual orientation can hinder emotional intimacy expression for same-sex partners. Additionally, the strain of uncertain societal acceptance and inconsistent messages regarding marriage rights can take a toll on same-sex couples, causing confusion and impacting their psychological well-being. These challenges often lead to struggles with embracing conventional symbols of commitment.

Our LGBT couples’ therapists are attuned to the distinct issues that arise due to sexual identity, including challenges related to commitment stages and norms, which may differ from those experienced by heterosexual couples.

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.
