Tilly has been a qualified counsellor since 1986 so her involvement with sexual and gender diversity started well before words like ‘gay’ or ‘trans’ were used or widely understood. She has a wealth of experience as a GSRD (Gender, Sexuality and Relationship Diversities) Therapist which she brings to the GenderGP family. She initially worked with survivors of child sexual abuse but her energy and commitment to therapy-for-all took her on a path of continuous professional development.
She has had a diverse career. This has included supporting offenders and addicts in prison and working as a Needs Assessor for the Open University.
Trained as a person-centred counsellor, Tilly has, over the years, combined this work with research into autism, dyslexia, speech and language, and mental health. She believes that understanding these conditions and the associated difficulties has complemented her holistic approach as a counsellor and therapist.
Tilly continues in private practice but the primary focus of her work now is in relationships, gender and sexual diversity.
