What can Rainbow Community House offer support for?
Some of the experiences we support young people to navigate include (but are not limited to):
- The effects of experiences of injustice
- Low mood / depression
- Low motivation
- Friendship / relationship difficulties
- Unusual experiences (seeing and hearing things other people don’t)
- Experiences of loneliness and isolation
- Suicidal thoughts
- Traumatic experiences (including physical, sexual and emotional violence)
- Family conflict
- Grief and loss
- Difficulties with eating and/or body image
- Intrusive worries, anxiety and panic
- Struggles arising from gender identity and sexuality
- Bullying and discrimination
- Difficulties adjusting to life transitions
- Problems at school or work
These difficulties may or may not be directly related to aspects of a person’s gender or sexuality. Whether they are or not, all LGBTIQA+ young people are welcome to access services at Rainbow Community House.
Rainbow Community House offers individual, group, couple and family therapy/counselling services as well as peer support opportunities. Counselling happens at your pace and we don’t believe in placing people under any pressure to talk about things they don’t want to talk about.
(PLEASE NOTE: we are only open Mondays and Tuesdays 9am to 5pm. If you contact us outside of these times we will respond to your enquiry as soon as possible on our next working day).
