Regular price $56.99
Regular price Sale price $56.99
Counselling professionals are increasingly seeking training for working with gender variant clients. Madison-Amy Webb invites them to consider a simple truth: everyone has a gender identity, whether or not they've given it much thought. By reflecting on their own gender identity through the exercises provided, counsellors can relate to clients in new and productive ways, gaining a more nuanced understanding of the issues faced by their clients and of their own identity.

Incisive yet accessible, this unique guide shines a light on how the popular conception of gender identity came into being by looking at the social and historical influences at play. This context is then brought to life with a rich variety of case studies and excerpts from the author's own diary. Reflective exercises such as 'The Dressing Up Box' and 'Personal Meaning' will help readers develop a deeper understanding of their own gender identity, while clinical techniques offer new ways to connect with gender variant clients effectively. Essential reading for any counselling professional working with gender variant clients.

    An engaging read for all mental health practitioners. Madison uniquely balances theoretical understandings of gender variance and clinical case studies along with valuable insights into the transition journey through her own personal reflection and experience.
  • Dominic Davies, Founder & CEO, Pink Therapy

    Drawn from the authors lived experience as a trans woman who then trained as counsellor, Webb generously offers insight into her own experience of gender variance and offers a personal and theoretical framework for understanding other trans women
