TRANSGENDER

262,000 people in England and Wales reported having a gender identity that is different from the one they were assigned at birth.
*2021 Census*

Imagine living in the wrong body your whole life, feeling as though you are acting out a role that simply isn't you. Imagine the fear of sharing your true self to others, knowing they may judge you for wishing to be your authentic self. Imagine society making you feel that you are wrong or 'weird'  for wanting to be a different gender. Imagine not knowing Who will be there to support you, or if you're opening the door to rejection. 

 Do these hypothetical situations feel eerily familiar? Have you found yourself imagining the outcomes more than once? 

Do you feel that you are experiencing negative Mental Health such as anxiety, low mood, or a combination of the two? Perhaps, the anguish you’re encountering has left you feeling as though there is no positive outcome. Leading to experiencing self-harm and suicidal plans? Having the conversation with Family can feel pressuring, especially if they struggle with getting their heads around it. You may have even already experienced counselling, but felt they have never gotten to the bottom of the situation, never allowed you some necessary respite in exploring safely how you feel, and your aspirations of how you might feel about it.

The M Word (Emotional Problem Solving) cic is a Mental Health service with a difference. Since the day our Founder graduated in 1996, she knew she wanted to make a difference.

When we say we care, we do it with passion!

Life is never easy, regardless of the path your life journey takes. But we emulate the same ardent passion you possess to be the person you truly are. Taking the first steps can seem scary, but you’re already proving how remarkable you are having the courage to identify who you are deep down.

Lavinia's background

Since The M Word (Emotional Problem Solving) cic opened its doors in 2020, induvial have come to access the therapeutic support.  Clients come into therapy needing support with their transgender journey. Lavinia is able to provide support with their Mental Health where many agencies are not able to.  

What is Our approach?

Lavinia’s model of care Emotional Problem Solving is a unique approach consisting of a combination of talking therapy embracing Social Role Valorisation (SRV), Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Interpersonal Therapy (IPT), and Counselling.

SRV looks at the individual, their environment and the impacts on them both positively and negatively, and challenges negative perceptions and fixed beliefs. CBT challenges our negative thoughts and feelings, IPT explores our relationships and their impact, and Counselling teaches us to listen to ourselves.

Emotional Problem Solving consists of an initial assessment (1.5hrs) followed by further sessions (1hr +) through a choice of packages depending on your needs.

Your Clinical Nurse Therapist is only a phone call away if you need support through the therapy. Telephone, videolink, text, or email support continues to be offered throughout the therapy.

Lavinia has always asserted that “Mental Health affects everybody, not just anybody!” from the moment we are conceived to the moment we die. It is important to know ourselves really well to enable us to recognise the triggers that impact on our mental health, as well as our physical health, but also the right coping mechanisms that empower us, build our confidence and resilience.

 

What are the benefits?

  • Empowering the client to regain control of their life without the use of medication (e.g., anti-depressants/anxiolytics) or negative coping mechanisms (e.g. alcohol/drugs/sex/self-harm).
  • Building a reliable relationship, maintain clients’ confidentiality
  • Creating a safe space, remaining  non-judgemental
  • Upholding an open and honest connection

These are the key attributes to our success! We value each and every client as a unique individual. We treat each client as a VIP, as this starts the process of their recovery.

By being non-judgemental, maintaining confidentiality and discretion, we allow the client to relax immediately and not fear the stigma of mental health. The client is encouraged to talk freely and at length about their emotional problems.

Our clients often say they have been ‘given a licence’ to think about themselves. Many have commented on the comfort of the confidential and non-judgemental approach.

What is the role of Emotional Problem Solving Nurse Consultant?

  • Helping Clients to identify problematic issues
  • Help recognise the triggers that attacks their self-esteem
  • Teach new positive coping mechanisms for life
  • Provide a variety of support - telephone/text/email

hesitating is a temporary plaster, there is still time to make the first positive step!

 

If you are a Individual, or know of a Individual struggling with mental ill health, despite having accessed a number of services, we may well be in a position to help and support you in your recovery.
