Gender Clinic

Gender dysphoria is a condition whereby a person feels a mismatch between their biological sex and their gender identity. This can often cause great distress to the individual, many of whom report feeling ‘trapped’ in the wrong body.

Gender dysphoria can be a difficult condition to face, not just for the sufferer, but for their friends and family who may have questions. However, YourGP provides extensive help and support to all affected, and is proud to have treated many people with the condition, enabling them to become happier and more confident in who they are.

Here at YourGP, we see everyone as an individual, therefore the treatment we provide for gender dysphoria can take a variety of forms. Everyone, however, can benefit from the following:

  • A relaxed, fully confidential, environment
  • Short-notice appointments at a time to suit you
  • A friendly, non-judgemental and supportive atmosphere
  • Space and time to help you understand what you are going through

It is obvious from the outset that Dr Benade is very experienced in the Occ Health field. Because my employer had referred me to her I expected a bias in their favour. I was completely wrong. Dr Benade was very attentive, thorough and fair. How I feel mattered and she understood my eagerness to recover and remain with my employer in the job I love
