Life can be challenging enough before accounting for issues around exploring and expressing our gender and sexuality. Regardless of what’s impacting you, our LGBTIQA+ counsellors are available to support you.
Our free counselling service is open to LGBTIQA+ young people aged 12 to 26 (Perth) and 12 to 25 (regional WA).
You do not have previously accessed our programs to access counselling and support.
Topics we cover
We are here to support you in the things that matter most to you.
You can talk to your counsellor about anything important to you, including:
- Sexual health
- Sexuality and gender
- Questioning and exploring identity
- Coming out, transitioning and gender-affirming care
- Depression and anxiety
- Approaching addiction
- Communication and healthy relationships
- Grief, loss and trauma
- Stigma and discrimination
Our counsellors use a person-centred approach which means you control what is explored and the pace at which you go.
