About Kaleidoscope

We are a non-profit, accessible service in Central Glasgow offering Gender, Sexual, and Relationship Diversity Therapy to anyone aged 12 and above. We work in an inclusive way, providing a specialist service to those who may find it difficult to access counselling. 

Our mission is to provide informed, affirmative, and accessible counselling to Gender and Sexual diverse individuals in Scotland, to create lasting improvements to emotional wellbeing.

Why we work with Gender and Sexual Diversity

We have made it our mission to provide support to those who identify as LGBTQ+ or Gender and Sexually Diverse while also working to champion equality and inclusion. 

Across mental health issues, those who identify as part of this community are consistently over-represented and often experience further harm and distress caused by inexperienced, unknowledgeable, or misguided professionals. 

We know that some individuals will come to counselling specifically to talk about their sexual or gender identity and it’s important that you feel able to do so without fear of discrimination, judgement, or feeling that you have to educate your counsellor.

Other people may want to access counselling to talk about other concerns in their life or issues unrelated to their identity but still want support from an informed, affirmative, and knowledgeable counsellor who can appreciate the entirety of your life and experiences. 

Our Counsellors

Cat and Claire are both qualified counsellors and are registered members of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP). Between them they have over ten years experience of working with clients, and of working with individuals who identify as part of the LGBTQ+ community.

We specialise in working with Sexuality and Gender Identity and also have particular experience working with Self-Harm, Anxiety, Depression, Trauma, Mental Health Diagnoses, Abuse, Self-Esteem, and Suicidal Thoughts.
