Positive, Patient-Focused LGBTQIA+ Therapy

You deserve accessible, cost-effective, safe, and LGBTQIA+-friendly therapy. Wellin5 has online Canadian counsellors who are highly specialized in therapy for LGBTQIA+ issues.

Wellin5 is a Canadian company providing services to clients in every province and territory across Canada. Wellin5 psychotherapy, counselling and social work services are covered by most Canadian insurance providers.

Get Started

What are LGBTQIA+ issues?

LGBTQIA+ issues are challenges faced by the LGBTQIA+ community. This can include violence, family rejection, employment, housing discrimination, public accommodations, and healthcare. Addressing mental health issues is more effective with guidance from a counsellor who understands these issues.

LGBTQIA+ counselling takes those challenges into account. It offers treatment strategies from an informed and supportive perspective.

Symptoms

You may be stressed if you’re feeling body aches and pains, heart racing, dizziness or shaking, high blood pressure, jaw clenching and tension, a weakened immune system, or digestive problems. In the long-term, stress can lead to anxiety, depression, and withdrawal.

How can LGBTQIA+ issues be addressed in counselling?

Counselling for the LGBTQIA+ community focuses on processing difficult emotions. In turn, it helps to improve well-being and overall mental health. Compassionate and educated counsellors understand the unique challenges the community faces

A skilled and qualified LGBTQIA+ counsellor can make it easier for members of the community to tap into their true selves. Counselling can support a better understanding of personal gender identity and sexual orientation, while generally helping individuals live their fullest lives.

How we can help

Wellin5's counsellors provide online counselling for anyone, anywhere in Canada. They are equipped to support the LGBTQIA+ community through struggles, as well as day-to-day issues.

Finding a therapist shouldn’t have to be difficult. Yet, many Canadians seeking support find themselves spending too much time looking for a provider with availability instead of receiving counselling. 

With Wellin5, you can more easily connect with a mental health professional, registered in Canada. Enjoy the convenience of an online therapy platform combined with compassionate and informed support.
