Gender Identity Counselling
Counselling and Therapy for Gender Identity
This is our self-concept and sense of ourselves as either male or female. This is not necessarily defined by the physical bodies and genitalia we were assigned at birth.
To know we have been born into the wrong body which does not reflect our internal sense of self and who we know ourselves to be, can be difficult to understand and may lead to us feeling emotionally distressed and isolated.
How therapy can help
Having the space to explore who we are in a positively afforming and non-judgmental environment can be helpful in allowing us to develop a healthy gender and sexual identity. Some people find it useful to give themselves a label ie; Transgender, whilst other do not. There is no right or wrong, just individual choice.
If you feel it would be helpful to speak with a therapist, please contact me
