Pink Therapy is the UK's largest independent therapy organisation working with gender and sexual diversity clients and has many members who are UKCP registrants.
As an organisation it aims to promote high quality therapy and training services for people who are lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender and others who identify as being gender or sexual diversities.
There is a whole spectrum of different gender and sexual expressions and all are welcomed who are engaged in consensual, albeit transgressive, sexualities who are seeking a place to understand and be understood.
These include, but are not restricted to people who identify as asexual, celibate, polyamorous, non-monogamous, or swingers and those involved in BDSM or Kink lifestyles or practices, anyone on the gender spectrum from cross dressers/transvestites, gender queer, intersex and those living with variations in sex development, androgynes, third sex/two spirit, to those living full time as transgenderists, transexuals (transmen and and transwomen).
