It's so hard for lgbtq+ people, people with mental health issues, and those who have experienced trauma to find a therapist who understand their issues. Often therapists don't have the skills, knowledge or experience in working with stigmatised minorities or haven't had the life experience to be able to be truly empathic.
It's sadly often the case that stigmatised minorities can't access the therapy they need due to cost, or have had bad experiences when their problems aren't properly understood. During the last 6 years I've been supporting various parts of the community of people struggling with difficult problems related to the issues above. I want to do more to help, to provide quality support, and to walk people's journey to recovery at as little cost as possible for them.
Having more therapists who understand these issues can only help more to provide the urgent help that they need, which sadly goes unmet in so many cases, leaving people feeling alone, distressed and isolated.
