2SLGBTQI+ Counselling Services in Vancouver or Online 

At Haven Wellness Collective we are committed to providing inclusive and affirming counselling services tailored specifically to the 2SLGBTQI+ community. Our team of dedicated counsellors understands the unique challenges and experiences faced by individuals within this community, and we offer a safe and supportive space for exploration, healing, and growth.

Queer Counselling Services 

  • Individual Counselling: Our individual counselling sessions provide a confidential space for you to explore your thoughts, feelings, and experiences with a qualified counsellor who understands and respects your identity.
  • Relationship Counselling: Whether you’re navigating conflicts, communication issues, or other challenges within your relationships, our counsellors can provide support and guidance to help you strengthen your connections.
  • Family Counselling: We offer family counselling services to support individuals and families in navigating issues related to sexual orientation, gender identity, and expression. This can include family counselling with your family of origin, parenting support, navigating fertility and adoption options, and family reunification. Our goal is to facilitate open and understanding communication among family members and promote acceptance and affirmation.

What will counselling be like?

  1. Inclusivity: Our counselling services are designed with the 2SLGBTQI+ community in mind. We recognize that traditional counselling approaches may not always address the specific needs and concerns of individuals within this community. Therefore, we offer a specialized approach that considers the intersectionality of identities and experiences.
  2. Queer Counsellors with Lived Experience: Our team includes qualified counsellors who identify as 2SLGBTQI+ and have lived experience navigating the challenges associated with sexual orientation, gender identity, and expression. This unique perspective allows us to provide empathetic and understanding support to our clients. You can contact our administrative team to be matched up with a queer counsellor.
  3. Intersectional and Anti-Oppressive Lens: We approach counselling from an intersectional and anti-oppressive framework, recognizing that the experiences of individuals within the 2SLGBTQI+ community are shaped by multiple factors, including race, ethnicity, class, ability, and more. Our goal is to create a space that honours and validates all aspects of a person’s identity while challenging systemic oppression and discrimination.
