We understand the concerns LGBTIQ+ people bring to counselling are often universal to all people and may not necessarily be related to their personal sexual orientation or gender identity. We are committed to providing a safe, nonjudgmental and inclusive therapeutic environment. Many of our staff are peers and all counsellors are qualified, competent, trained and experienced working in therapeutic settings with LGBTIQ+ communities.
As well as providing counselling via a team of staff at Meridian, Meridian advocates the following professional practitioners who are appropriately skilled and experienced (LGBTIQ competent). All practitioners listed are supported by Meridian through training, education and fees for service are subsidised. This service is centrally coordinated by Meridian and aims to provide community members with access, options and choices throughout Canberra and the region.
