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.

Trans Counselling

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.

Is counselling right for me?

Speak to our counsellor about whether counselling is right for you, and explore counselling and other options with them. For more information, please email counselling@spectra-london.org.uk or call 020 3322 6923.

  • Keen to explore your identity?
  • Concerned about a relationship or situation?
  • Low or anxious?
