This section contains recommendations of books for LGBTIQ and gender and sexual diversity therapists and clients, and provides links to other suitable organisations.

If you are gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender, intersex or any other gender or sexual preference and are seeking literature about the societal and personal issues surrounding sexuality and gender, or if you are a therapist who is working with clients such as this and looking for texts to gain a greater understanding, then start your search here.

Once you have found what you are looking for, we highly recommend that you check out Gay’s The Word, a friendly and well stocked bookshop in central London that should meet your requirements. If you do not live in London, consider supporting us by visiting our Amazon shop and purchasing books from there.

We are currently in the process of transferring all of our resources from our old site into these pages, and will continue to add books and material regularly, so this section will continue to grow and expand. Please do visit again if you cannot find what you are looking for just yet. We are also open to suggestions, so if you would like to recommend an appropriate book or link, feel free to contact us.

Reviews:

“An invaluable resource for all therapists and counsellors. (And I do mean all.) The book’s challenging and innovative strategy of linking theoretical orientation and sexual orientation sets it apart from other, apparently similar volumes. The various contributions are notable for the exemplary way they link psychological concepts and the human experience of therapist and client in the work.”

Andrew Samuels, Professor of Analytical Psychology, University of Essex

“Written from a well-informed insider’s perspective on each theory, this book demonstrates a real coming of age of therapeutic work with lesbian, gay and bisexual clients. Many books in the past have been written about the difficulties of therapeutic work with these clients. This book, by contrast, puts theoretical perspectives on the couch, explores their strengths and weaknesses in relation to this client group and offers affirming strategies and solutions to working within these models.”

Sue Webb, President of the New Zealand Association of Counsellors
