Gay, Lesbian, and other LGBTQ+ Counselling Services
Updated: May 21
Here at Flourish Psychological Services, we strive to create an inclusive and welcoming atmosphere that helps heal and treat people of all backgrounds and lifestyles. That’s why we’ve always opened our doors to everyone who wants treatment and support – including all our friends and neighbours in Calgary’s gay and lesbian communities, and other marginalized groups of different orientations.
We know that it can be difficult to come out and express your true self in a world that may not be as accepting as you like, and we understand that there are inherent hardships that LGBTQ people face on a daily basis. It is our hope that we can help reduce those hardships and establish a true sense of self-esteem and purpose.
Finding LGBTQ Counselling Services in Calgary
However you classify yourself, your sexuality, your gender, or your lifestyle, we offer a supportive environment where you can gain confidence in your identity. We are a place free from prejudice and discrimination, accepting of all family types, and many of our therapists and counsellors have had specific LGBTQ training and additional LGBTQ courses, so they can offer genuinely helpful advice and analysis.
Do you offer gay relationship counselling?
Have you been searching for a gay-friendly therapist? Are you looking to improve the foundation of your relationship? At Flourish, we are always ready to listen. Whether this is for premarital counselling, marriage counselling, or general relationship issues for gay or lesbian couples, or other areas that might be related to your sexual identity, we are here to offer the help you need.
Do you offer LGBTQ youth counselling?
One of the hardest periods of life for people of non-heteronormative orientations is adolescence and young adulthood – when sexual identities emerge and play an increasingly bigger role in our lives. With the right support system, though, this can be a time of great self-expression and growth. So, we know how important it is to offer support and opportunities to discuss these issues while counselling LGBTQ youth in a way that is comfortable, purposeful, and authentic. This can be done in one-on-one, personal sessions, or in tandem with parental therapy, to assist in overcoming feelings of fear, inadequacy, or confusion.
Can I do LGBTQ counselling online?
Even before the COVID pandemic pushed many counselling sessions online, some people did not want to come in person, for a variety of reasons. Now, though, we have further expanded our online offerings, and we are capable of full remote sessions, where you can be in a place that is comfortable and calm for you, without missing out on help and support.
Is LGBTQ counselling available near me?
From our offices in south Calgary, we offer psychological and therapy services to people from all over the city and the surrounding regions. As one of the city’s premiere counselling centres, we are confident that we have someone on our team who can become your chosen LGBTQ therapist.
