My counsellor came to see me and I was very nervous because I had never had counselling before and I didn’t know what to expect. After we did our assessment I had told him things that I hadn’t told anyone about being gay. It was scary telling him this as I hadn’t talked to people or shared my thoughts with anyone about it. He was really patient with me and he listened in a way I didn’t feel judged. It really felt like he wanted to help me.
Throughout the weeks we looked at more things about me being gay. We used work sheets and play doh and other things to help me feel better and to explore worries I had and they helped me make sense of thing I was going through.
I felt much better about my situation after our sessions and I learned some tools that I can take forward. My sexuality is something I feel I understand better now because I had the space to talk about it.
