Suffering is a part of life. It is something we all have in common, yet can feel so alone and isolated in. It can present in many ways, whether it been through depression, anxiety, anger, and it can impact many areas of our lives such as activities of daily living, our ability to function socially and cognitively, and our adaptability to stress. For some, being resilient in the face of struggle comes naturally whereas for others, this is something we must actively work towards. Through the therapeutic process, I strive to help you to uncover your own resiliency and inner strength to persevere in the face of struggle.

I don't try to control a sunset. I watch with awe as it unfolds.” I believe we sometimes need a safe and trusting space to understand our inner struggles and recognize ways to cope.

Transgender (Gender Dysphoria) Counsellors
We should make clear that not all the counsellors listed here are transgender themselves. Rather, they specialise in helping with aspects of being transgender in L1N and transgender identity. They help with trans life and trans relationships.

If you're transgender or are looking for help with transgender issues in L1N or for a L1N transgender counsellor these professionals provide transgender counselling and transgender friendly care.

Transgender people in L1N may meet the criteria for a diagnosis of gender dysphoria (historically called gender identity disorder (GID)) "only if being transgender causes distress or disability." This distress is referred to as gender dysphoria.

The professionals listed here include transgender friendly counselors in L1N, transgender friendly counsellors in L1N, transgender friendly psychologists, and transgender friendly therapists.

Counselling for transgender issues in L1N can help those living a transgendered life or transgender relationship; or family members coming to understand the life of their transgender child or sibling.

How can I tell if a therapist is right for me?
Therapists in L1N are able to work with a wide range of issues.

For example, if you're seeking a marriage counsellor in L1N you'll find that most therapists are trained in marriage counselling or couples counselling in L1N and couples therapy. And they welcome families for family counselling in L1N or family therapy in L1N.
