I work with youth and young adults to help them improve depressive symptoms and self-esteem as well as effectively address family, relationship and peer conflicts.

Reachin out for a local LGBT community or support group near you can be of help. Usually, they know how to help people finding they support they need, also in the medical field. They will sure know where you can look for inclusive care a d be able to point you there!
Speaking to your GP will help, they will have to correct and most up to date information regarding trans inclusive support, they will most likely refer you to your community mental health team and from there you will receive specialist support. If you're not comfortable with going to your GP, you could always have a friend/ family member do this for you, or someone you trust if you're not so confident.
LGBTQ is all about people who struggle daily for understanding who they really are. They help people all over the world who are lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, gender fluid and so on. Contact any hotline connected to LGBTQ and you will see how much you will feel better and at ease! :)
You can do some research on the web and speak to your medical doctor to refer with a list of supporters of trans Mental Health Supporter
It can be a struggle sometimes but start in your community. If your LGBT group doesn't support trans, ask them for references to someone or some group that does. Ask your doctor or any other health practitioner for references not only to other practitioner but if they maybe know of places that are trans inclusive. If you can't find anything location there is always the internet.
Try doing a search on "trans-inclusive health care?" + your area? Also try joining local trans groups on social media and ask where the best places to get health care in your area are.
You can find health care or mental health support that is trans inclusive by consulting your local health care/mental health office. Good luck!
Certain therapists on the psychology today search function will indicate that they specialize in transgender issues. Also, there's the RADremedy database. I don't know how helpful it would be but there is stuff on there. Other sources would probably be asking around/the local transgender support groups. Good luck!
