Hi, I am based in Marchwood but also offer mobile counselling in a 10 mile radius. Counselling is a place to help you explore the personal worries and issues you face. I aim to listen in an accepting, understanding, therapeutic and confidential way. During the counselling I aim to build a warm, honest, genuine and open relationship between us, in which you find trust in me and yourself, to empower you to explore your personal world and make the best decisions for yourself. This in turn, I believe, will enable you to reflect and make the best decisions for yourself in order to develop your own personal growth.

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

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

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

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