What is FEARLESS?
We live in a world that is, at times, disapproving and hostile towards LGBTIQ people. Myths and stereotypes are often more prevalent than positive representations of the LGBTIQ community. Without even being aware of it, we can sometimes buy into this negativity and internalise it.
Is Internalised homophobia having a negative impact on your well being?
Join our FEARLESS group to explore how these issues might be affecting you and learn better ways of dealing with them.
FEARLESS is ten-week therapeutic group for members of the LGBTIQ community who feel impacted by homophobia. It is facilitated by professional counsellors and aims to provide a respectful and safe environment to explore your experiences and their impact on your identity and relationships. The group seeks to provide you with a better understanding of how to live a more authentic and fulfilling life.
The group will explore homophobia in the context of:
- Health and wellbeing
- Sex and intimate relationships
- Friends and family
- Faith and religion
- Work and career
Important participant information:
- Potential group participants will be asked to attend an assessment. The assessment will be approximately 45-60 mins and undertaken by one or both of the group facilitators. The assessment is designed to ensure the group is a good fit for participants.
- The success of the group relies on the active involvement of everyone. As such, we encourage participants to commit to attending all sessions. Participants will be supported to contribute as much as possible in each session.
