Lesbian, Bisexual, Gay and Transgender Issues

Great strides have been made in our society towards more equality for LGBT citizens, but this is still a world in which anyone perceived of as “different” can have a very hard time, and discrimination and stereotyping are still real problems.

Whatever your age, if you are struggling with issues around sexual and gender identity, you’ll know how complicated it can all be. For some people, knowing that their orientation is likely to be perceived as shameful or disappointing by their family and community is very hard; more so in some ethnic groups and families than others. Some may struggle with the disconnect between the way they had always though their life would be and the reality.

While being lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender is not a disorder, dealing with the many practical and emotional difficulties inherent in being different in an often intolerant word can lead to a range of difficulties. You might feel lonely, isolated, and even develop problems such as depression, anxiety, stress and all the associated physical and emotional issues that come as part of the package.

By working with a psychotherapist, you can explore the origins of any negative or difficult emotions you have around your sexuality and/or gender identity. You can discuss and examine your relationships with the important people in your life, and figure out how these relationships can grow and flourish within the context of your sexual and gender identity. We can use therapies such as counselling, cognitive behavioural therapy or psychodynamic approaches to identify and understand any painful or difficult emotions you might be experiencing around your sexual and/or gender identity, and to learn how to replace those difficult emotions with more positive ones.

Very thorough and attentive

I have attended and been seen by Dr Lincht. The service I had was excellent, she was able to give me a quick call back when I requested, when I was still making inquiries and and after the appointment she made herself available to answer my concerns. I would definitely recommend your company to my friends and family. Regards Phumla

I've just started consultation with Vjosa Hyseni and my initial call and subsequent session with her have been quite insightful and helpful. Vjosa has an in depth knowledge of her field as well as very warm and calming persona which really helps when discussing very personal and sensitive issues. A very positive experience all round.

I found my therapy very interesting and informing. It helped me to acknowledge things I hadn't done before. I'm really glad that I went and believe it will help me in the future

Very helpful team, quick to respond and knowledgeable.
