As a trans person you are welcome at Checkpoint! Our professional trans counselling offers general and psychological advice for questions concerning gender, identity and transition.

Advice for all those who deal with the topic of gender on the following topics:

  • Identity: Who am I? What is gender? Am I trans?
  • Means: How do I want to live? What possibilities are there to live my gender? What is the situation regarding medical gender reassignment measures? What is covered by health insurance? Who are competent professionals?
  • Coming-out: How do I tell my parents, my partner, my superiors, my team?
  • Networking: Where can I meet other trans people?

Psychological support: If you simply need someone to talk to, who knows and understands the topic, you’ve come to the right place.
