LGBTQIA+ Counselling Service

Medway Gender & Sexual Diversity Centre

MGSD Centre provides access to our LGBTQIA+ counselling service.

The counselling service is provided by Kim Ricketts BACP of Topaz Counselling Service.

Kim is a Trustee of SEGI, and professional counsellor, she has been managing and providing counselling for LGBTQI+ people at MGSD Centre since 2012. Kim has many years experiance working with individuals questioning their Gender or Sexual Identity and those from the LGBTQIA+ community who need one to one support to manage issues in their lives.

Kim practices Holistic Counselling which is a process that helps open the door to a fresh beginning.

Counselling is a unique space between client and counsellor, to assist the person to shift out of a problem and stuck place, into moving forward into a place of change, with compassionate and skilled support. There are many different types of therapy, with some focussing on the person’s past (childhood in particular) that certainly has some bearing on the life that follows and is useful, at least as a marker from where a person has come from. Other therapies are more solution focused and others aim to restructure a person’s thinking in order to sequence improved behavioural outcomes. The most effective therapy is the one that makes a difference to the individual and may well prove to be an eclectic mix, such as holistic counselling, that fits the person rather than the other way round.
