Abstract

In this chapter we provide an overview of psychotherapeutic and counselling practice with non-binary clients. After a brief introduction to non-binary clients and the general mental health of this client group, we explore the ways in which the major psychotherapeutic approaches (humanistic, psychodynamic, and cognitive-behavioural) conceptualise gender identity and expression, and the potential tensions and possibilities of these conceptualisations in relation to non-binary experience. We also offer ideas and practices from the existential and systemic therapeutic approaches, which often utilise less binary conceptualisations of gender.
