COUNSELLING & PSYCHOTHERAPY
I provide counselling & psychotherapy for adults, adolesents and children questioning or in conflict with their gender identity.
GENDER IDENTITY CONFLICTS
Do you have a male or female gender identity which is in conflict with your physical body?
As clinicians finally realise that this is not about mental illness and cease diagnosing people with Gender Identity Disorder the phrase Gender Dysphoria is more generally used to describe someone who is unhappy with or doesn’t identify with the gender assigned at birth. Gender Dysphoria simply means dissatisfaction with a person’s assigned gender and is not a pathological condition. Not every person questioning their gender identifies as MTF, FTM, Trans, Transsexual, Transgender, Transvestite, or Gender Queer, for some people a compromise can be the best solution. Whatever the situation, I provide the support and advice needed to empower you to decide upon the right course of action for you.
Are you already committed to or considering transitioning?
Many of my clients come to me because they feel stuck, confused or are questioning whether they can come to terms with remaining in the gender role they were assigned at birth. Some come to me because they feel a change of gender maybe their only solution. I work with male to female (MTF) and female to male (FTM) clients. I also provide Counselling for children battling with these challenges. Counselling for minors requires the inclusion of their parents or guardians. I am easily accessible to both national and international clients
My consulting rooms are located in Harley Street and Penn in Buckinghamshire.
