Who I Am

About Rachel

** Please note that I am currently not taking any new referrals. I will be sharing some new developments soon! My apologies for any disappointment this may cause.**

Welcome to Express YOUR Gender, a social enterprise based in Ireland. I’m Rachel, the founder of xYg. I provide voice, Rachel Moore
therapy and support to transgender people, helping you to develop confidence and engage with life in all its forms. I want everyone to be able to embrace and express their authentic selves and live happier, freer lives.

I believe that gender is an individual experience, that everyone feels, expresses and lives their gender differently. I believe that healthcare providers should support gender diversity. I endeavour to break through gender norms and stereotypes and I help you to see past the “shoulds” or “should nots” and to find a communication style that is right for you and your life. I believe it’s YOUR gender and that you should express it YOUR way; not my way, not your doctor’s way, not your boss’s way, not your best friend’s way, not your teacher’s way, YOUR way!

What I Offer


Voice and Communication Therapy - Trans Gender - Express Your Gender

Voice Therapy & Support for Trans People

Voice therapy for transgender people is often about building up a bit of confidence in everyday interactions, at home, with friends, in the workplace, or on a night out. It can also be about ‘masculinising’, ‘feminising’ or ‘neutralising’ your voice. Whatever your goal, we work together to achieve it.

Support for Speech & Language Therapists

I believe that speech & language therapy is an essential service for many transgender people. If you have recently received a request or referral for/from a trans client and are unsure of where to start, contact me and I will help you. You know more than you realise but a bit of guidance will certainly help.


Lectures, Talks and Workshops

I am focused on empowering emerging and established Speech & Language Therapists and Occupational Therapists to embrace equality and diversity in their clinical practice and professional lives. Undergraduate lectures, departmental workshops and CPD talks are available.


Confident Voices Galway commences 9th April 2018

Super excited that the upcoming ‘Confident Voices’ Voice & Communication Group Therapy Programme has been fully funded, thanks to The Ireland Funds and the HSE National Social Inclusion Office. It’s been a couple of years in planning. Sometimes things just take time! 

Confident Voices is a group programme for trans people which aims to increase self-esteem and communicative confidence. In the upcoming course, we will focus on techniques to feminise the voice, identifying targets that feel authentic and right for you. We will also examine gendered communication behaviours, such as gesture, posture and facial expressions, and explore methods to cope with stress management and social anxiety. If you have very specific ‘functional’ targets, those will be incorporated into the group where possible. The group environment is very motivating and it’s a chance to make friends and be yourself in a no-judgement place.
