My clients had difficulty dealing with stress and anxiety as a result of burnout due to caregiving responsibilities, personal high expectations, and lack of social support. In view of the Covid pandemia, the clients experienced challenging situations to survive and support themselves and their loved ones. The clients needed to gain greater awareness and acceptance, manage their own expectations, and set aside time for self-care. Stress and anxiety affect them physically, occupationally, and socially. The clients wanted to learn strategies to deal with their worries and anxiety about their future, and to improve in functioning.

Jocelyn believes that just as plants bend towards the sky, everyone of us have within ourselves the propensity to seek healing and growth; the task of therapy is therefore to dig deep, uncover and facilitate these processes. This is made possible through increased self-knowledge and self-compassion, and an expansion of the capacity to engage in meaningful relationships. Jocelyn believes that change is co-created by the client and therapist in collaboration, with safety and authenticity as the cornerstones.

Transgender Counsellors

As a gender-diverse individual, why might I want to see a therapist who is also gender diverse?

A trans or gender-diverse client may want to see a therapist who is also trans or gender diverse because the client may feel safer sharing their experiences and more confident that the therapist will understand, validate, and support them. But trans or gender-diverse clients can also benefit from therapy with cisgender therapists; this is a personal decision based on the connection between the client and the therapist, and if that connection is strong, therapy will be successful.

What if I cannot find a therapist who shares my gender identity?

Therapy can still be effective if a therapist does not share a client’s gender identity; a large body of research indicates that the most important factor in successful therapy is the therapeutic alliance. A therapist can also be interviewed for sensitivity and competence on gender identity and expression to ensure they possess appropriate knowledge and skills. Many therapists have excellent training and extensive experience working with gender-diverse clients, and that expertise can be invaluable despite a therapist not sharing the same firsthand experiences.

How can I recognise a good therapist for working with gender-diverse clients?

An experienced therapist should be able to help clients explore their gender identity and expression, alleviate discomfort related to their gender identity, treat mental health challenges and trauma, address existing relationships and communication with family members and loved ones, and determine the next steps pertaining to nonmedical or medical gender-affirming interventions. To recognise a good therapist, clients can ask about these topics and explore their comfort and connection with the clinician.

How might I inquire about a therapist’s experience working with transgender clients?

Clients should feel comfortable asking therapists directly about their experience working with transgender or gender-diverse clientele. For example, clients may ask about the therapist’s training and education with regard to gender identity, how many trans clients they’ve worked with in the past, and what sorts of matters were discussed. You may wish to inquire how a therapist specifically supports the needs of transgender clients or clients questioning their gender identity. A good clinician who is nonetheless not the right fit for you is often happy to make referrals to others based on the concerns you articulate in a preliminary conversation.
