Spectra offers social groups, 121 support, counselling and workshops. Spectra’s services are delivered by people of trans experience themselves in a friendly, safe, confidential, non-judgemental and accessible space.
Not sure what you need? You can complete our Spectra Trans health and wellbeing assessment. We call it a BASK, which stands for Behaviour, Attitudes, Skills and Knowledge; these are the four areas of thought we want to address and build on to support your health & wellbeing bringing it to the forefront of your mind. Our staff will contact you based on your assessment result and point you to the suitable support.
Spectra counselling service offers a safe, trans-inclusive space to discuss and explore your thoughts and feelings and find a way forward. We work with a range of issues and concerns – it does not have to relate directly to gender identity. Online and telephone counselling is also offered.
Speak to our counsellor about whether counselling is right for you, and explore counselling and other options with them. For more information, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 020 3322 6923.

Our Trans Programme participatory evaluation group is designed to recognise and include our peer trans and non-binary service users as important stakeholders in service improvement and evaluation.
Our community participatory evaluation group intends to expand the notion of accountability to answer not only whether our organisation is fulfilling the terms of the funding we receive, but also whether we are fulfilling the needs and goals of the communities we serve. Please take a look of the 2020 evaluation report produced by the group.
Your views are important to us. Please apply to be part of our evaluation group by completing the application from and returning it to CPEG@spectra-london.org.uk.
