About the Training Workshop

This workshop has been developed as a result of Michelle Bridgmans work and experience gained in

delivering Transgender training courses over the past 10 years in response to the ever changing landscape of Gender Diversity and in response to requests from Psychotherapists,Psychologists and Counsellors.

The workshop will be a mix of theory, experiential exercises and discussions in a safe environment with the aim to enable you to understand and work with those who may identify as Transgender or Non-Conforming Gender. You will be aware of the issues facing Gender Diversity and you’ll be confident working in what is often perceived to be a very difficult field.
