Have you been struggling with sexuality, LGBTQIA identity, gender expression, and gender identity-related issues? Gender dysphoria and sexuality aren't psychological issues, however, they can still cause a lot of psychological stress and anxiety to a person. Or have you been struggling to fit into your workplace, local communities, or your social circle? Or might even have been unfairly treated or discriminated against because of your ethnic minority/BAME background? Unable to express your true self, true identity along with living in a society where misunderstanding and stigma can easily be found could greatly affect you

Do you feel ripped apart and shaken to your core? You don't want to be a burden to friends and can't talk to family, it is all so overwhelming. The deepest pit of despair and hurt, mixed emotions, anguish, anger, confusion, barely coping with intense non-stop life changes. Loss of family, partner or treasured friends, sudden or chronic terminal illness, loss of the person you used to be, ageing, guilty lifestyle, fear of a new job and moving, or the prickling heartache from loss of your pet. You don’t even have the strength to take the next step, to pull yourself through while trying to reach your old self. You need a safe space.

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