Does the difference between sex and gender confuse you? Perhaps when we put gender expression, and physical and emotional attraction into the mix you are left more confused?

Heteronormative Society

Friday 19 June 2020 (10am - 12.30pm)

Exploring the impact of society, and how it can cause us, as counsellors, to automatically assume that clients will desire the ‘other gender’ which can impact on clients' mental health.


“I really enjoyed Saturday and have already used the use of pronoun awareness in BACP accreditation application and will bring awareness to my workplace.

I really felt that you engaged the group and I felt heard.

Thank you so much.”

(Rose Morrow - Sussex Counselling and Psychotherapy Training Day - March 2019)

"It was a great day and you are a wonderfully, patient and kind tutor and so well informed. I think people attending your course will find it enlightening."

(SW - Online Group Training Day - March 2019)

“The course has been structured in a way to challenge and consider issues from a different perspective. The best thing was the introduction of vocab terminology and the experiential sessions which highlighted the assumptions we make. I also really enjoyed different media used to support learning - the videos were very thought provoking and relevant.”

(Tom - As You Are Counsellor Training Day - June 2018)

Workshop Facilitator

Chloe Foster

I love working as a trainer and have over 12 years’ experience which includes training LGBTQ volunteers to run community events to raise awareness of mental health stigma, training young people to run mental health awareness sessions in schools and colleges, training volunteers to teach English abroad and training team leaders of UK and international community team projects.


Since completing advanced training in online counselling I have been adapting my LGBTQ Awareness workshops to offer them online. This is continuing to bring a more accessible way of gaining CPD and helping fellow counsellors become more confident in working with sexual and gender diversity.
