Working Alongside Trans, Gender Diverse and Questioning People: A two-day training course for therapists and counsellors
In order to become part of the GI Network of Therapists and Counsellors, you must undertake our training course, "Working Alongside Trans, Gender Diverse and Questioning People".
This two-day course has been created in response to demand for more in-depth and specialist learning from therapists and counsellors themselves, and to the need of the trans community for a pool of trans-knowledgeable therapists and counsellors to draw on.
The training will be a mix of formal presentations, interactive exercises and reflective discussions delivered in a small group learning environment by two professional trainers who combine extensive therapeutic and trans-specific knowledge and practice.
