Resources and Information on gender dysphoria
We usually suggest that parents try to find a therapist through either the ACP, psychoanalytic psychotherapists in the BPC Register, or to contact one of the several reputable training institutions such as the Institute of Psychoanalysis or the British Foundation for Psychotherapy. There has been a shift in the attitude of some therapists, who will use the 'affirmative model’ of care with GD children. Therefore we recommend asking any potential therapist about their attitude to treating GD and whether they will keep an open mind and explore without prejudice.
We also have the Family Consultation Service which is on the Evans Psychotherapy website,
Here are a few useful resources-
