For a long time Western psychology focused on the normal curve as a benchmark for psychological health. Under this view individuals who fall within the norm are considered healthy and psychologically sound, while those who fall outside the norm are considered unhealthy.
Diversity positive counselling takes a fundamentally different view of what health and wellbeing entail. It acknowledges that human diversity is a positive and essential part of wellbeing.
Under this view, behaviours that often have stigma attached to them can be recognised for what they are - expressions of the natural diversity of the human experience.
Our aim in counselling practice with all clients is to respect a person's fundamental right to express themselves as a unique individual, whatever form that expression may take.
