Identity Space


Support, guidance, and counselling for anyone who is looking for a space to explore their gender, identity expression, sexuality and/or relationship diversity.

We understand that having an inclusive and non-judgemental service that can be individual to your needs can be really beneficial and very affirming.

The therapists and mentors who work within this service have all either had specific training and/or have lived personal experiences of the issues that may arise for someone who is exploring their identity or personal expression.

Support can be 1-1, or as a family or group. We base the fee paid upon what your personal circumstances are, taking into account if we have any funding available to support you to access the support you need. If your financial situation is not a concern or a restriction to you being able to access support, a percentage of what you pay will go back into our project, making more help available to those who can not afford therapeutic support without the help of additional funding.

We are able to work with and support adults, young people, and children aged 11 years and above. Play and talk sessions are available for younger children, along with family support sessions, along with parent, carer and partner support and guidance.
