Dr Glenn Mason
I’m a HCPC Registered Counselling Psychologist based in Belfast, and I have been helping people with their mental health since 2001. I am also part of the LGBTQ+ community too.
I had my own struggles with anxiety, and got to a point where I was feeling low, and very anxious being around other people. I felt really disconnected from the life around me. I needed support from a therapist then, and once I got that support, I finally accepted myself and realised I could be Glenn, and my sexuality was only one part of me.
When I became a psychologist, I wanted to support people going through similar experiences – people who needed a space to feel accepted, just as they are. I understand first-hand what it can feel like to hide who you are, and to not to know what comes next.
