Gender reassignment involves a fundamental lifestyle change. It is important we as counsellors / psychotherapists, or other health care professionals, work in our client’s best interest and do not knowingly do our clients any harm.
A clear understanding of the onset of our clients Gender Dysphoria, and why they are seeking gender reassignment is essential. This full day programmed workshops will explore the biological, or psychological, reasons for Gender Dysphoria. The workshops will also explore the importance for those going through the gender reassignment process to achieve an authentic gender identity in order to embark successfully on their lives as a man or woman.
The workshops will also explore the increasing concern for the ever-growing numbers of young people seeking gender reassignment.
Finally, there will be a workshop exploring ‘Non-binary Gender Identity, and then time for delegates to discuss any thoughts they might have which have not been covered, or to share experiences they have already had from working with transgender clients.
Lynda Quick has 14 years-experience working at a NHS Gender Identity Clinic as counsellor, psychotherapist and for the final 8 years as lead psychotherapist. She retired from the NHS in March 2018 and continues to work with persons seeking gender reassignment in her private practice.
She has been a guest speaker at International and university conferences and has written articles on Understanding Gender Dysphoria, Achieving an Authentic Gender Identity Through Gender Reassignment, and Understanding Non-Binary Gender Identity.
