Supporting You Through Change

Are you confused and unsure who you are?

Do you feel different and find it hard to ‘fit in’?

Maybe you are struggling on – but life is feeling more and more like a play that is happening around you and that you are viewing from afar.

Are you feeling disconnected from your physical gender?

Do you feel isolated and alone?

I don't want to be who I am? Starting out and leaving the safety of 'Home' is both exciting... 

I'm over 36. What's my gender?

Confused? What's best for my child?

As a parent, you have put your life into bringing up your child...

Are you supporting someone who is Transgender?

Although there are support groups out there for people who are Transgender, there isn’t, as yet, much support for the family and friends of those who are transitioning

I would like to introduce myself to you.

What does My Therapy Entail?

My service is slightly different from other counselling or talking therapies because my approach is more holistic. I do not see being Transgender as something that needs diagnosis or to be fixed, but rather as an opportunity for self-development and personal healing. Having transitioned myself, from female to male, I have an awareness and understanding that people who haven't been there don't possess. Due to my personal experience, my therapy method is more about looking at life as a whole and the individuals place in it rather than focusing on something and making it an issue when really there is no need.
