Williamstown Psychology supports Marriage Equality.
We feel relieved that the postal survey returned a resounding YES showing Australia’s support for Marriage Equality. We look forward to prompt legislation to establish Marriage Equality.
Although there has been much elation for YES result, some people may be feeling a range of emotions having gone through the last few months while this debate played out in the media, within our familie, with our friends or with strangers. Some people have been subjected to physical and verbal abuse during the postal survey. Our Psychologists are here to help people talk through some of these issues and concerns. Our practice fully supports Marriage Equality and the LGBTIQ community. We provide a safe place for all people.
We provide a safe environment for all people, regardless of sexuality and gender. Some people may see gender as fixed or in binary terms, while others see it as being on a continuum or more fluid.
Those who struggle with gender issues may find they have a mixture of feelings, including grief, confusion, uncertainty and loneliness. Some people may seek psychological counselling to help work through some of the issues which may arise through both their physical and emotional journey. Issues may arise as a result of experiences within the workplace, family, relationships or within friendship groups. Family members, partners and children may also need a place to explore their own feelings and responses to having a family member who identifies within gender diverse terms.
Williamstown Psychology have psychologists who have experience in working within the area of Trans health and gender diversity.
