Florey Sexual Health Clinic

The Florey clinic provides a free, confidential, integrated sexual health service in Reading, Wokingham and West Berkshire providing a one stop shop for your sexual health and contraception needs. We won't share any information you give us with anyone outside the clinic without your permission unless we are worried about your safety. Sex is a normal part of most people's lives. Whatever your sexuality or preference we are not here to judge but to help inform your choices and to support you to remain healthy. All services are free and there are no prescription charges.

Transgender Therapy

Hello and welcome to Transgender Therapy. We are both Therapists with a compassion to provide support in a world where understanding and NHS therapy can sometimes be a challenge.

I'm John and I was born female (transition completed) and this is Lin who was an exceptional partner during my transition and is now my best friend.

Both of us have a personal understanding of what it is like to live with Gender Dysphoria and now combine this with our professional roles as Therapists to create a unique and nation wide service to the Trans community.

Any questions or you feel you need support send a message or write an email and we will be happy to help. :-)
