LGBTQIA2S+ counselling is designed to support lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer/questioning, two-spirit, intersex, asexual and further sexual identities through their struggles living in Singapore. Incontact provides a team of trustworthy therapists that strive to support you in being your best self.
In recent years, research has shown that individuals within the LGBTQIA2S+ community suffer from worse mental health than heterosexual people. In particular, depression and loneliness (Eres et al., 2021). The LGBTQIA2S+ community faces many additional concerns on top of your typical everyday stressors. Over time, if these build up internally, it could cause tremendous harm to your mental health. Therapy can help you develop coping mechanisms to manage these powerful emotions to guide you on your unique self-empowerment journey.
If you or someone you know feels overwhelming pressures and emotions due to sexual identity or as a family member of an LGBTQIA2S+ member, make an appointment with us today to have an in-person or online therapy session.
Members of the LGBTQIA2S+ community may face specific difficulties that not everyone can understand. Family members of LGBTQIA2S+ relatives may also experience some of these struggles. This may include the following:
LGBTQIA2S+ Counselling provides a safe and non-judgmental space for individuals to work with our counsellors to overcome their challenges. In today’s world, there is unlimited diversity of sexual identities to empower individuals to express their true selves. To ensure our clients feel accepted and comfortable, our therapists regularly research the ever-developing sexual orientations.
Our psychotherapists may use various techniques to help you overcome challenges during therapy sessions. Our therapists will select strategies for you. Some may include Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) to replace harmful emotions with positive ones and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) to learn coping mechanisms for overwhelming emotions.
At Incontact, we are a team of committed professionals with a central goal of promoting self-empowerment and helping you become your most authentic self. Our counsellors are always here for you to listen and help you break through overwhelming challenges throughout the journey. Please note that we do not practise conversion therapy.
For many people, family relationships are central to their support system. Our therapists are highly trained in facilitating the formation of healthy relationships through communication and conflict management. If your family is struggling with the acceptance of an LGBTQIA2S+ member, book an appointment with us today.
Due to the challenges LGBTQIA2S+ members face daily, it is plausible that couples may face further distress. Communication is essential for growth and a healthy relationship. Our counsellors have had substantial training in the Gottman method to help you overcome these challenges.
It is healthy to express sadness and be tearful during stressful times, loss/change, or even if you just feel overwhelmed. However, this becomes an issue when these negative emotions are experienced daily for prolonged periods. Our counsellors are extensively trained in a series of techniques to help you find yourself again.
Feeling anxious or worried is perfectly normal. However, it becomes a problem when this feeling is constantly experienced and overpowering. At Incontact, our psychotherapists have been trained in numerous techniques, so they can design a program specific to suit your needs to help you empower yourself.
