Coronavirus (COVID-19) update.
All clinic appointments are now being changed to remote consultations or to a later date in person. Ana my practice manager will be contacting booked in clients to make the appropriate arrangements. Remote appointments cannot be arranged though for new client assessments for surgeries, unless previously seen by another GenderCare psychologist/ psychiatrist in person for assessment. We are monitoring the situation on a daily basis and our priority is for all our clients to remain in good health.
I work with clients with various presenting issues to find a way through them together. I primarily come from a person-centred and systemic approach, but I have trained in, supervised and am experienced in a range of therapeutic orientations. My services focus on facilitating clients in making their own decisions and choices in an equal professional counselling and consultation partnership. As an adult practitioner, I am afraid that I cannot provide services to clients under the age of 18. Remote options are now available for many types of appointments.
Clients may have a diverse range of issues, such as around:
- General anxiety
- Social anxiety
- Family and significant others
- Living well
- Lifestyle and major life changes.
If you would like assistance with any of these, or, an issue that it is not mentioned, please contact to discuss this further.
Please be aware that if you have severe unmanaged mental health issues and/or have deliberately self harmed or attempted suicide in the last 6 months, that my services are not appropriate for you.
Types of Appointments

I have been developing the range of appointments available in my clinic, but this does not affect clients booked in for the usual gender related psychological assessments and follow up reviews. I am also currently working with colleagues in relation to the specific needs of trans and nonbinary clients over the age of 30. You are especially encouraged to contact us, if you are in that age group, meet the mental health criteria appropriate to my services (see above) and would like to discuss your particular needs and requirements for appointments.
In respect to therapy consultation options, if you would like to explore your thoughts and feelings in depth around a range of issues such as those below, we would love to hear from you:
- Gender identity
- Decisions around hormone treatment and surgeries
- Living authentically in the world
- Family, relationships and significant others
- Other areas of concern
