The Albany Trust has recently been awarded financial support from The Big Lottery Fund and is finally able to offer members of the LGBT community, FREE
group therapy sessions.
“ANGST” (Albany New Group Sessions Therapy) begins: January 2015
At the Albany Trust, we regularly come across individuals whose desire for therapy is often hampered by their struggles surrounding their financial situation. Unfortunately, this means that they are not able to access the kind of support and non-judgemental help that could have a lasting, positive impact on their quality of life. It is with this in mind and with help from The Big Lottery Fund, that we are embarking on group therapy sessions called ‘ANGST’:
consisting of three separate group sessions per week, with each session tackling three different themes relevant to those in the LGBT community.
OPEN FOR BOOKING, TO JOIN THE GROUPS NOW. Tel: 0208 767 1827 Mon, Wed, Fridays 10am-4pm
- 'BECAUSE WE'RE NOT WORTH IT?’
A FREE supportive therapeutic group for HIV+ men struggling with low self-esteem and long-term unemployment
Welcome to Albany
- WHATEVER HAPPENED TO LOVE?’
A FREE supportive therapeutic group for gay men exploring issues around commitment, intimacy and the sustaining of long-term relationships
- 'WHO NEEDS REASONS WHEN YOU'VE GOT CHEMSEX?'
A FREE supportive therapeutic group for gay men exploring their high-risk and sexually addictive lifestyles
Each group will contain between six to eight individuals (or up to four couples) and will have a therapist and co-facilitator working to help group members explore the source of their problems. Through the process of sharing in a supportive group atmosphere, our desire is to help these members deal not only with the prejudice they may face, but perhaps more importantly, show them that they are not alone in their difficulties. In these smaller groups, they can work together with our therapists’ direction towards the common goal of improving their lives within the LGBT community and the community at large.
As recognised specialists in relationship and sexuality therapy within the LGBT community since 1958, we recognise that many of our clients' issues are troubling and stressful, which can ultimately effect self-esteem and distract people from their jobs and life in general.
Therapy is proven to help clients deal with the symptoms aswell as the cause: by exploring methods of dealing with each individual’s issues and potentially giving our clients' coping strategies for a healthier mind-set with life-long benefits.
