We provide sessions face to face in our safe and confidential central premises as well as at other venues if required.  This may be remotely for example, using Microsoft Teams or by telephone.

“It’s been really helpful having art and games when we’re talking. It’s helped me be able to talk about really difficult things in a comfortable and accepting environment. Having the group has helped with my anxiety and worries because I’ve heard other people’s stories and how they cope. Being able to meet others who are trans has made me realise I’m not alone.”
