Was that six months ago? My last post? Yes… a little more than six months ago I wrote a Facebook post that became a blog post. A sort of self-affirming, goal-refres...
Welcome to Express YOUR Gender, a social enterprise based in Ireland. I’m Rachel, the founder of xYg. I provide voice,
communication and career development services to members of the transgender (trans*) community, helping my clients to develop confident voices and engage fully with social and economic life. 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, and that professional services and advice should support and celebrate gender variance. I endeavour to break through gender norms and stereotypes. 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!
A world where all people can participate fully in social and economic life, regardless of gender identity or gender expression.
To make social and economic life accessible to the transgender community through the provision of professional, affordable services.
Freedom of gender expression, gender diversity, gender equity, honesty, love.
Voice and communication therapy for transgender people can involve ‘masculinising’, ‘feminising’ or ‘neutralising’ your voice and communication style, or simply building up a bit of confidence for that workplace presentation or big night out. Whatever the goal, we work together to achieve it.
Are you finding it difficult to get a job? Are you stuck in a rut and wondering how to move forward in your career? Is your gender identity or gender expression one of the factors holding you back from being your most authentic self in the workplace? xYg’s career support service might be just what you need.
How we have traditionally understood gender is changing. Genderqueer, demi-guy, AMAB… Great new language and thinking is emerging and I love nothing more than finding empowering, exciting and creative ways to raise awareness of the gender revolution in your school, college or organisation.
The change in my voice and communication style has been transformative. My voice passes all the time and I never have any concerns about speaking or interacting with people now. I found Rachel a sympathetic and understanding therapist who helped me realise this goal. I would recommend this therapy to anyone undergoing gender transition
