Sexuality

I don’t think I’ve every heard of anyone having to come out as heterosexual. Someone who is not straight is likely to go through a series of processes. Feeling that you’re not what you might have expected to be, the implications of that, such as maybe not having a traditional family setup and biological children with a partner.

So you’re coming to terms with that yourself and then other people become involved. Who do you tell and when? Who can you trust to be the first one to hear your news and be accepting? How are your family going to react? Maybe you are already married and only recently had these feelings? Or you’re an adolescent and your friends are always making jokes about ‘gays’? Will your friends treat you differently?

Talking through these feelings and sorting them out in your own mind before coming out may be helpful. I can support you through this process, whatever stage you are at.
