Before we start talking about LGBTQ counselling, remember we are not here to give you any kind of treatment but only a 100% safe environment to talk about your issues without any judgements.
Even though any person’s sexual or romantic choice and gender identity is not anyone’s problem but LGBTQ that is lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer people face a lot of social stigma when they come out in the open. They face a lot of societal issues that creates instability, stress, anxiety and even depression. They feel insecure and even uncomfortable talking to anyone about their mental health. That is why, online counselling or seeking professional help from a psychologist is very important who can provide effective LGBTQ counselling.
The acronym LGBTQ or LGBTQIA is used to refer to inviduals who are not heterosexual or cisgender but represent a wide variety of identities and orientations people may have. LGBTQIA is an umbrella term that represents lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer and questioning, intersex, and asexual.
Even though the recent Supreme Court ruling in India decriminalised homosexuality, but the LGBTQ community still face lot of discrimination and challenges in the society. As a result, with years of coping and facing oppression, coming out to parents or living in the society because of social expectations - it can often lead to mental health issues such as depression, anxiety, addiction, health concerns and even suicidal tendencies.
LGBTQ have also faced lot of bullying in schools and colleges by their heterosexual and non-transgender classmates and that creates a lot of emotional trauma.
Sometimes, they also face domestic violence, verbal and physical bullying, and sexual assault, that can lead to chronic stress and poor mental health.
