“I had six weekly sessions with Joel in late 2018, centring my confusion with my gender identity and expression. With Joel I felt that I was in a comfortable, understanding and in a safe space to talk about my experiences. Over time I was able to work with Joel to develop tools to help myself and continue to monitor my own feelings and decipher them. Some of these tools I’m still using months later, and I feel that their support during such a critical time was invaluable to my wellbeing. Before I started the sessions, I was feeling overwhelmed, but by the end I felt I had a better understanding of my identity and how to express myself in the wider world. I’m very grateful for the help that Joel has provided. Thank you!”
