I specialise with the LGBT+ community, including their family and friends. I can offer a non-judgemental, gentle, accepting confidential space for you to share your issues and concerns, knowing you will not be rejected or discriminated against. I have lived experience of transgender identities, as my son is transgender. I have witnessed the high mental health conditions, suicidal ideation, including self-harm, and loss faced by LGBT+ individuals that I have counselled, along with the hurdles my son has encountered during his transition. I would like to walk with you along your pathway, and consider myself privileged to do so.

I know how difficult it can be to make a change and to start therapy. Some of us are not used to asking for help, perhaps we tell ourselves that we’re not worth anyone’s time. Or perhaps there is something that has been unspoken for a long time. If you are looking for your children then it can be so difficult to know who is best suited to help them through their issues. For all those looking for counselling I will try to make the first steps easy by offering a free half an hour to talk over the phone to discuss your needs. If we agree on making a start (short-term or open ended), we can move through the sessions at your pace.

I am part of the LGBT+ community and identify as a cis gay man. As a consequence I have seen how life can throw many diverse LGBTQ-related challenges at us: loss, crisis, change - that cause us to question our sense of self. Yet I believe within these challenging times we have the ability to grow and develop - even flourish - through the untangling of our internal and external worlds: who we are, our authentic selves, others’ around us as well as the world in which we live.

My core aim as a counsellor is to provide a warm and consistent space for you to feel heard and understood. We have many parts within us that need a listening ear, and open heart. When we find acceptance and compassion for ourselves, things can start to change in our lives. I offer kindness, non-judgement, and curiosity so that you can begin to feel resilient and self-loving. Each of us is born with inherent wisdom and we are our own best expert. But you may have lost trust along the way.

Transgender 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 Bristol and transgender identity. They help with trans life and trans relationships.

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

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

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