Speaking with a therapist who has received training in working with LGBTQ+ people may be helpful for problems like having a hard time accepting your sexual orientation, dealing with other people's opinions of it, and believing that your body does not accurately reflect your true gender (gender dysphoria) coping with bullying and discrimination, transitioning, low self-esteem, self-harm, suicidal thoughts, despair, anger, isolation or rejection from family, friends, or your community, and fear of violence
Maybe someone has treated you unfairly because of who you are. Any act or attitude that singles out or distinguishes someone based on characteristics like age, sex, race, national origin, sexual orientation, or gender identity is considered discriminatory. This may involve withdrawal or isolation. The major forms of discrimination mentioned in regard to the LGBTQ population are those based on sexual orientation and gender identity.
Homophobia, stigma, and discrimination still exist and can have a severe impact on the health and well-being of these individuals. If you have issues about your own sexuality, it may be difficult for you to develop healthy and happy connections with both yourself and other people, which may be contributing to your compulsive habits, substance abuse and risky sexual behaviour.
You might be struggling with other issues relating to your sexuality, such as how you feel about using drugs, chemsex, alcohol, relationships, or even dating. Despite being a part of the LGBTQIA+ community, you could still feel isolated and alone. I will offer you a setting where you can reveal any of those things in an environment where you can be who you are and feel secure.
