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

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

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

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

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