As a practice, we maintain a commitment to being conscious and sensitive to issues of difference, diversity, and power. We aim to be accepting and attentive to your needs around differences in gender and gender identity, culture, ethnicity, race, socio-economic status, sexual orientation, nationality, region of origin and physical/emotional/cognitive ability. We also maintain a commitment to learning and growing as practitioners in areas of difference. Due to the oppressive trends in society, we would like to state outright that we support and encourage the rights of people who identify as Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer, and Intersex, and maintain an LGBTQI positive practice. We also pay particular emphasis to the difficulties women face as a result of institutionalised, rampant sexism and misogyny in society and aim always to keep therapy conscious of this context.   Further, we realise the need for men in therapy, within the context of widespread suppression of the men’s emotions within a gendered society.
