This is a person-centered training opportunity for counsellors wishing to learn more about lesbian and gay topics and clients.

This training covers lesbian and gay as an umbrella identity, and how this is relevant within the counselling space, including impacts of having a minority identity in wider society.

This training is suitable for counsellors who wish to further their knowledge in a person-centered manner. You might also have been approached by a lesbian or gay client and not considered this before. This training will give you more confidence in that work and will improve your basic general knowledge.

All traditions of counsellor are welcome to attend, and the training will be four hours, with a break in the middle for drinks. The training will be delivered in a person-centered way, using your existing knowledge along with your trainer’s knowledge, to ensure as full an understanding as is possible.

Topics covered will include:

Understanding the words around lesbian and gay identities.
What clients might bring to therapy and how to react with confidence.
What research exists about lesbian and gay clients in counselling and outside.

Please check the training section of our website for future topics, and email us to register your interest.

The training is planned to be at our base in the city centre.

You will get a CPD certificate for four hours’ attendance.
