For whom do we offer counseling?

We offer counseling for trans and nonbinary people and all those who have questions about their gender identity.

 

Moreover, friends, partners, relatives and other caregivers of trans people as well as people who come into contact with the topic professionally (e.g. psychotherapists, social workers and teachers) are welcome to contact us. We offer advice regardless of age and are also available for children and youths.


We understand the term trans to include all people who do not or not always identify with the gender assigned at birth. This includes transsexual and transgender women and men, as well as people with other gender identities, for example, nonbinary or agender people. We understand transgender as an equal variation of gender. We believe that every person has the right to define their own gender and live accordingly. For us it is self-evident to accept people in their body image and identity and to support them to live a self-determined life.

 

Our offer is based on the principle of peer counseling. It is free of charge and confidential. This is a peer and community based project.

  • Questions regarding gender identity
