For whom do we offer counseling?

Our counseling offer is costumized for trans* people and people who have questions around gender identity.

Also friends, partners, family and other people that are close to a trans* person are welcome. In addition we offer counseling for professionals that have questions around the topic.

 

With trans* we are referring to everyone who is partly, not or not always identifying with their assigned gender at birth. This could be transsexuals, transgender, crossdresser, transvestites, genderqueers or non-binary people....)

 

We do not consider transgenderedness as being an illness or a disorder. Rather we belief that it is an expression of a plurality of possibilities to live gender. 

 

We think that everyone has the right to define their own gender. Neither courts, the medical system nor pychology can do that. Trans* is for everybody.

·         Questions regarding gender identity

·         Clarifying wishes and aims
