Expert support for your LGBTQ journey with a compassionate and understanding approach

Welcome to Jodie James Counselling Services, where I am dedicated to helping you embrace your authentic self and navigate the unique challenges faced by the LGBTQIA+ community. As an experienced therapist in Manchester, I understand that each individual's journey is unique. That's why I tailor my therapeutic approach to suit your specific needs.

Please don't hesitate to get in touch and take the first step towards a happier, more fulfilled life. I look forward to working with you.

My Therapeutic Approach

I believe in the power of a personalised, client-centred approach to therapy. I understand that each individual's journey is unique, and I am committed to providing a tailored experience that respects your autonomy and expertise in your own life.


My therapeutic framework includes a Client-Centred Approach: I believe that you are the expert on your own life and experiences. My client-centred approach empowers you to take control of your healing process by providing guidance, support, and understanding. I blend this with Transactional Analysis (TA) and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT)  techniques to provide expert guidance and understanding as you work towards embracing your true self.

Understanding LGBTQIA+ Therapy

LGBTQIA+ therapy addresses the unique challenges and experiences faced by lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, intersex, asexual and questioning individuals. These challenges may include but are not limited to, discrimination, coming out, family issues, relationship concerns, internalised stigma, and navigating gender identity or expression.

Therapeutic Framework for LGBTQIA+ Support

As a dedicated therapist specialising in LGBTQIA+ therapy, I utilise various therapeutic frameworks to support your journey. Each approach is tailored to your individual needs and preferences, ensuring you receive the most effective and compassionate care possible. Our client-centred approach places you at the centre of your journey, respecting your autonomy, individuality, and expertise on your own experiences. Together, we create a trusting and supportive therapeutic relationship where you can safely explore your emotions and experiences related to your LGBTQIA+ identity.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) about LGBTQIA+ Therapy

How do I know if LGBTQIA+ therapy is right for me?

If you identify as LGBTQIA+ or are questioning your identity and are experiencing challenges related to your identity, relationships, or overall wellbeing, LGBTQIA+ therapy may be beneficial. Therapy offers a supportive and understanding environment where you can explore your unique experiences and work towards self-acceptance and personal growth.

How long does LGBTQIA+ therapy typically last?

The duration of LGBTQIA+ therapy varies depending on each individual's unique circumstances, progress, and therapeutic goals. While some people may benefit from short-term therapy, others may require more extended support. As your therapist, I will work closely with you to assess your needs and adjust the therapy duration accordingly, ensuring you receive the most appropriate care.

Can LGBTQIA+ therapy be provided online or over the phone?

Yes, I offer various modes of interaction to accommodate your needs and preferences. In addition to face-to-face sessions, I provide therapy via Zoom/Video call, telephone, and walking therapy. This flexibility allows you to access the support you need in a manner that is most comfortable and convenient for you. The most important aspect of remote therapy is that you are able to partake in the sessions in a safe environment. If you do not feel this is possible, face to face therapy may be more suitable. 


What if I am not comfortable discussing certain aspects of my identity or experiences?

Your comfort and safety are of utmost importance to me. As your therapist, I will never pressure you to disclose information that you are not ready to share. The therapeutic process is a collaborative effort, and we will work at a pace that feels comfortable for you. Our goal is to build trust and establish a safe space for you to explore your experiences and emotions when you feel ready.


Can you help family members or friends of someone who identifies as LGBTQIA+?

Absolutely. Supporting a loved one who identifies as LGBTQIA+ can be challenging, and it is essential to care for your well-being as well. I can provide guidance and support to help you understand your loved one's experience and develop strategies for providing compassionate care while maintaining your own mental and emotional health.


If you have any further questions or concerns about LGBTQIA+ therapy, please don't hesitate to contact me. I am here to provide warm, professional support to help you navigate your journey with confidence and compassion.
