Gender-related issues

Biological sex and gender identity are the same for most people, however this is not the case for everyone. Some people may have the anatomy of a man, but identify themselves as a woman, or vice-versa, while others may not feel they are definitively either male or female. This mismatch can lead to distressing and uncomfortable feelings, called gender dysphoria. Gender dysphoria is a medical condition not a mental illness. However psychological problems can arise and we can help you with these.
