Michelle Bridgman - Transgender Psychotherapist

Michelle Bridgman is a renowned Transgender Psychotherapist. As clinicians finally realise that this is not about mental illness and cease diagnosing people with Gender Identity Disorder the phrase Gender Dysphoria is more generally used to describe someone who is unhappy with or doesn’t identify with the gender assigned at birth. Gender Dysphoria simply means dissatisfaction with a person’s assigned gender and is not a pathological condition. Not every person questioning their gender identifies as MTF, FTM, Trans, Transsexual, Transgender, Transvestite, or Gender Queer, for some people a compromise can be the best solution.

Many of Shelley's clients come to her because they feel stuck, confused or are questioning whether they can come to terms with remaining in the gender role they were assigned at birth. Some come to her because they feel a change of gender may be their only solution. She works with male to female (MTF) and female to male (FTM) clients. She is easily accessible to both national and international clients.
