Trans clients are frequently doubted, misunderstood, infantilised and judged by professionals, and this book presents an approach that ensures psychological wellbeing and trust is built between counsellor and client. This person-centred, affirmative approach is based around unlearning assumptions about gender and destabilising professionals' ideas of 'knowing better' than, and judging the client, so that they can forge a relationship and connection that is on an equal footing. The book explores a range of topics such as the overlap of gender diversity and autism, sex and sexuality, intersectionality, unconscious bias and reflective practice. Essential reading for professionals that want to support trans people's mental health and social wellbeing.

MEDIA REVIEWS
This excellent book provides therapists, counsellors, and other practitioners with all they need to know about working with trans and gender-diverse clients. Given the current climate of panic and misinformation in this area, the book provides a much-needed counterbalance: a straightforward, accessible, and engaging overview of how sex and gender work, what key terms mean, what is involved in various forms of transition, the impact of transphobia, and the importance of community, among other topics. The chapters covering autism and other forms of neurodivergence, and diversity within trans communities, were particularly welcome. I would heartily recommend this to any clinician or practitioner wanting to improve their knowledge in this area. Absolutely superb. -- Dr Meg-John Barker, author of How to Understand Your Gender and Queer: A Graphic History
This is a deeply inclusive book and a must read for therapists and anyone working with trans and gender diverse people. I spent most of my time reading this book nodding and saying 'YES!' emphatically. Highly recommended. -- Yenn Purkis, Autistic and non-binary advocate author and presenter
