On Thursday 12 th August, 6:00pm-7:00pm, Lancashire LGBT will host its third LGBTQ+ Mental Health Hour episode, ‘Accessing support for sex and relationship problems and gender issues’.
Our support worker Beth Meadows will speak with Matthew Peace from SHARE (Sexual Help and Relationship Enhancement) in Lancashire.
The session will cover a range of issues including:
– What is psychosexual therapy?
– Navigating sexual relationships pre and post transition.
– Asexuality; how relationship needs can be met without sexual attraction.
Matt has been working for SHARE for the past 9 years. He is a Senior Psychosexual Psychotherapist and provides therapy in Accrington, Preston, and Burnley. Therapy is his primary role, but he is also a clinical supervisor. He sometimes supports psychosexual therapy students with their placements, and outside of SHARE he does some lecturing on the MSc Psychosexual Therapy course at the University of Central Lancashire.
SHARE works to promote and develop positive psychological sexual health, effective physical sexual function and reproductive ability within the context of the individual and / or the relationship whilst respecting and acknowledging all individual’s sense of self within the relationship.
Please come along to the session to learn more about these issues. The episode will be recorded, and later uploaded to our Youtube channel. A BSL will be present and automatic captions will be on the Zoom. You can sign up to the event and submit your questions to Matt via this link: https://www.smartsurvey.co.uk/s/LGBTQMHH1208/
