Listening to trans*people is good for you!

Our practice has a specialized consultation hour for children, adolescents and their relatives who have questions about gender incongruence, gender dysphoria and trans identity. We offer counseling, diagnostics and therapy geared towards these special concerns.

Mr. Braun is a paediatric endocrinologist and has several years of experience in this field. The care of these children is very important to us.

In an initial consultation, we discuss the specific situation of each child. If necessary, initial diagnostics can then be carried out, e.g. in the form of a blood sample.

The second step is the start of therapy, which initially aims to stop further pubertal development. If puberty has already been passed, menstruation-suppressing therapy can be initiated if necessary.

In the third step, sex reassignment hormone therapy with testosterone or oestradiol is then carried out.

Parallel to hormonal treatment, child and adolescent psychiatric or psychotherapeutic support should be provided. As there are currently long waiting times, our practice offers appointments with our own psychotherapist, Ms. Fiedler, until a permanent appointment can be made elsewhere.

To mark the International Day against Homo-, Bi-, Inter- and Transphobia, the Charité Queer Network and the Bundesverband Trans* e.V. have produced a video for inter- and trans-friendly treatment in medicine , which we would like to recommend to you.
