ONLINE THERAPY

Online counseling is a series of interactive sessions between the gender therapist and the client who is experiencing dysphoria, distress, concern or simply seeking clarification of gender issues. Counseling consists of regular one hour sessions. These sessions initiate a developmental process whcih enables a history to be gathered and sny dilemma to be understood. Unrealistic ideas, expectations and maladaptive behavior are also identified and discussed. The therapy is not intended as a cure for the ‘gender identity Dysphoria', its overall and ultimate goal is enablement and the clients long term stability and success in everyday life and relationships.

According to Nils-Günter Schultze, there are a number of benefits to online treatment in which the patient does not see the therapist.

The following lists of psychlogical processes are common during online treatment, and serve as factors that enable online therapy to be a success.

Psychological anonymity - Real anonymity is difficult to achieve nowadays, yet online patients are afforded this benefit, having the ability to receive treatment in the comfort of their own homes. Many of them even choose e-therapy for this very reason. The anonymity that e-therapy affords enables them to talk about their most intimate personal matters with a total stranger, much easier than if they had to do so in traditional face-to-face therapy. This anonymity also allows them to decide when they would like to end sessions, a benefit not found in traditional therapy.

  • Protection of self assurance - Since most online sessions do not involve seeing the other person, patients do not have to experience the common humiliation that accompanies the discussion of sensitive topics. Empowered to speak freely, the anonymity minimizes the patient’s helplessness during the process.
  • Projection - Online counseling lacks the formality, objectively experienced distance, and insecurity triggered often during the first few sessions in traditional face-to-face therapy. Therefore, often, the patient’s image of the therapist takes on traits of projection where a patient’s inner image of the counselor is most likely to match some imagined character of an ideal counsel.
  • Willingness to change - The unique setting of online treatment encourages patients to feel increased inner confidence and openness. These feelings of empowerment facilitate greater acceptance of the counselor’s intervention, and thus makes the treatment even more effective. Over time, and in the context of one-time counseling, it means that counselors have the opportunity to make more of an impact.
  • Accessibility - Due to the fact that all treatment materials are permanently documented, patients and counselors both have the ability to re-read session transcripts. This kind of access is a benefit not found in traditional therapy, and it allows patients the ability to literally track their progress, over time.

As U.K. registered and fully qualified psychotherapists. We can assist with many of the associated difficulties encountered when trying to reach your ultimate goal of 'real life experience' and 'self-identify in your chosen gender.

Online we offer a thorough assessment of readiness for SRS within a time limited framework. At the end of the assessment period, if mutually agreed that you are a suitable candidate for hormones and surgery you will receive the appropriate letter of recommendation plus report and any other relevant supporting documents these can then be presented to your chosen endocrinologist or SRS surgeon. The assessments adhere as closely as possible to the standards and guidelines as laid down by the 1998 Harry Benjamin Standards of Care criteria but are flexible to individual needs. (‘Fees' click here)

part from carrying out SRS assessments our therapists also have experience of a wide range of personal and psychological issues which encompass all gender variant behaviour - ranging from the cross dresser to transsexual and gender related issues.
