I would like to introduce myself to you.
Hello. My name is John Patching and I am a professional Life Coach, Hypnotherapist, NLP Practitioner and Meditation Tutor. I have also had the experience of transitioning from the female gender to becoming male.
I am going to be completely honest with you and say that the transition from one gender to another is not an easy path. It is not a choice; it is a necessity in order to become a whole person. It involves a journey of discovery that encompasses all that we are Mentally, Physically, Emotionally and Spiritually. However, I consider this path to be both enlightening and transformational. An opportunity to become consciously aware of who we are in a way that most people struggle to achieve.
I began my transition 20yrs ago when little was known about Gender Dysphoria. Male to Female Transsexuals were considered an extension of drag queens and Female to Male Transsexuals were unheard of. Fortunately a lot has changed since then; there have been great medical advancements of both treatments and surgical procedures; laws have changed; and there has become public awareness and acceptance of the condition. However, there is still a distinct lack of therapeutic support and emotional understanding. It is for this reason that I believe I have been called to help and support both people who are going through this change and their families and friends.
By combining my personal understanding of Gender Dysphoria and my professional knowledge, I can provide a specialist therapeutic approach that takes into consideration the Mental, Physical, Emotional and Spiritual needs of each client. I am here to help and support you during your time of change.
