Does the weight of your worry continue to grow and leave you feeling exhausted? Are you trying hard to fit in, but usually end up feeling excluded, unhappy, and anxious? Or perhaps you're noticing that your child is finding it hard to connect with others? The stress of relationships and identity can be a lot to manage; having to tell someone about it can be downright overwhelming. If you or a loved one feels like there's nowhere else to turn, accessing the support of a trusted therapist can help you focus on your strengths and discover who you really are.

I work with adults and couples to help them move towards a state of continued growth, compassion, and self-awareness in a way that is collaborative, strengths-based, and empowering. I believe in creating a client-therapist relationship that fosters authenticity, support, and space for both acceptance, and for change. This can begin in our very first session. Together, we can begin to tease apart the adaptive approaches to dealing with and moving through life you've grown accustomed to, and begin to decipher which of these patterns are serving you, and which you may be interested in moving beyond.

I believe in an empathic, collaborative approach, so that you may always be part of the therapeutic process. Psychotherapy allows for a unique relationship, whereby the focus of attention is on understanding you. It provides an opportunity for openness, trust and honesty, often difficult in other interpersonal situations. It can help you to increase your resilience to life challenges and improve relationships. I use a range of therapy modalities according to the best fit for your needs and personality. Greater meaning in life can be achieved by longer term therapy, but also brief periods of therapy which are cumulative.

Life is full of challenges, but you don’t have to face them alone. In counselling, you have the opportunity to work with someone who can help you find solutions to the challenges in your life by assessing your needs and strengths, exploring possible options with you, providing you with information and resources, and/or supporting you with developing coping strategies. In my practice, I apply knowledge and skills gained from my education, employment, and ongoing learning while also drawing on my lived experience as a queer guy who has struggled with challenges related to mental health, trauma, family conflict, and other experiences.

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 M6C and transgender identity. They help with trans life and trans relationships.

If you're transgender or are looking for help with transgender issues in M6C or for a M6C transgender counsellor these professionals provide transgender counselling and transgender friendly care.

Transgender people in M6C 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 M6C, transgender friendly counsellors in M6C, transgender friendly psychologists, and transgender friendly therapists.

Counselling for transgender issues in M6C 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 M6C are able to work with a wide range of issues.

For example, if you're seeking a marriage counsellor in M6C you'll find that most therapists are trained in marriage counselling or couples counselling in M6C and couples therapy. And they welcome families for family counselling in M6C or family therapy in M6C.
