What is it about?

Looking into experiences of LGB patients in psychological therapies by reviewing literature over the past decades using a mixed-method review synthesis approach. There are some key ideas to learn about like firstly, therapist self-disclosure about sexual identity. A therapist disclosing identity aids the patient. Secondly, not all stresses are linked to minority stress. And third, internalised homophobia will lead to mental health problems.

Why is it important?

Because LGB persons find unhelpful experiences in psychological therapy centres and these need to be addressed to make the experience better.


This is a literature review looking at all papers published. This is called a mixed-method synthesis. Looking at all types of research. Not just one type
