Sexual Identification  :  No-one is born knowing who they are; we build and discover our identity as we grow.  Some people are attracted to people of the opposite sex.  Some people are predominately attracted to people of the same sex.  Others are attracted to both men and women to varying degrees.  Most people during their life feel drawn to someone of their own sex but finding someone of the same sex attractive does not necessarily mean that person is gay.  For many, these feelings are just part of normal sexual development.  Somtimes working out our sexual identity takes time.  Nobody knows what makes someone gay, lesbian, bisexual or straight.  We don’t choose our sexuality.  It’s not due to our upbringing or the people we hang around with. Sometimes it just ‘is’.  Being gay, lesbian or bisexual is normal, but it can feel isolating to discover that your sexuality is different to that of your friends.  How can counselling help with Sexual Identity Problems?  You have a right to be proud of who you are and your counsellor will help you to explore your own feelings and enable you to feel comfortable with how and who you are.
