About the Directory
The therapists and counsellors listed in this directory practice in various locations across South Wales. They have obtained a Diploma or other equivalent training in counselling and/or psychotherapy and have also undertaken additional specialist development work and training on issues facing people who identify as LGBT.
Why use the Directory?
People who identify as LGBT may well be happy to access the range of generic counselling and therapy services. However, it can sometimes be helpful to see a therapist who you can be confident will work with you in an affirmative way. All Directory members are committed to providing counselling and psychotherapy to LGBT people in a safe, affirmative and confidential environment.
A note on LGBT terminology
Not everyone feels comfortable using particular terms or labels to describe themselves. Some people find that describing themselves as Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual Trans* or Queer can help give them a sense of community - others do not. Although the Directory uses the acronym LGBT, all Directory members will be interested in you as a person and will respect any term you choose to use to describe your identity or sexual orientation (including your choice not to use any term at all).
