About us

Spectra offers free face-to-face counselling to Wandsworth residents aged 13 and above who identify as lesbian, gay, MSM, bisexual, queer, trans, non-binary, intersex, asexual or who are questioning their gender or sexual identity.

Our service is peer-led and our therapists are drawn from the LGBTIQ community.

Spectra (formerly West London Gay Men's project) has been supporting our clients' health and emotional wellbeing since 1995. We work to combat isolation and discrimination, empowering people across the LGBTIQ spectrum to make informed choices about the life they want to lead.

Although we are funded to support Wandsworth residents, counselling is delivered at our offices in Ladbroke Grove at St Charles Centre for Health and Wellbeing.

Training, qualifications & experience

All counsellors are fully qualified, registered members of British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy and abide by their code of ethics and complaints procedures.

They are experienced in working with gender and sexual diversity and work in a way that is affirming of people's gender identity and sexuality.
