Specialist Gender Support & Resources for Parents

Are you concerned about your child’s gender identity?

Having a child with diversity in gender identity and expression can be one of the most challenging situations a parent could ever face. Living in our society, it is an extraordinarily difficult task to know how to best support your child if they are expressing persistent cross-gender behaviour and/or presentation.

Questions you may have as a parent:

I don’t want to hurt my child but how do I manage this?

Where can I get support?

Dr Riley provides counselling for parents raising gender variant children and their families.

For children approaching puberty or beyond Dr Riley provides counselling focusing on helping the child to explore their gender identity with the aim of establishing a stable and congruent sense of self.

There are a number of websites and resources specifically for parents with gender variant children
