We are continuing to review our meetings in light of the latest government advice in response to the Covid-19 situation. We are not currently holding regular events.

On Wednesday 9th September there was a formal announcement making gatherings of more than six people (indoors or outdoors) illegal from Monday 14th September. Therefore we won't be resuming our routine meetings as planned on Saturday 26th September.

Instead, we are planning an online social.

Welcome to the home of the newly formed Surrey Transgender Support Group

Surrey Transgender Support (STS) is a brand new self-guided, inclusive self-help and support group for transgender people and their families in Surrey and the surrounding areas. We are a safe space (both emotionally and venue-wise) for all individuals - young, old and everyone in between - at all stages of the transgender journey. We acknowledge that things have improved for the trans community in terms of support and acceptance; however, there is still more to do. Our group will be there for the current generation and future generations, as we evolve as individuals and as a group.

“I am a trans-female. I have a gender dysphoria diagnosis and suffered throughout my life with massive anxiety caused by my dysphoria. My earliest memories of being at odds with my body are around age four. I self-harmed as a young child and more as a teenager, which I now know is fairly typical behaviour of gender dysphoria. There was little to no help for people like me back then in the sixties. The catalyst for founding this self-help group was the recent television drama Butterflies. Although it brought back many painful memories for me, the drama made me realise the benefits of a local self-help group. The Therapy Gardens is the perfect place, offering privacy, peace and a place to breathe.”

Alexis Hamilton (founder of STS)

We are newly formed and will be self-led. It’s important to note we are not counsellors. There are no referrals needed, and there will be no sign-in. Surrey transgender Support is an informal group. We hope that people will find the group to be a safe space. The group is an accepting and welcoming peer-to-peer support group. We hope that people will feel comfortable being open and honest; however, there is no pressure to speak, open up, or engage.

Initially, there will be no formal agenda or structure to start. In due course, we aim to set up a working group of volunteers to take the lead and develop the event, structure, purpose, and activities for the future.

Meets monthly on last Saturday of the month from 6 -10 p.m. at

The Therapy Garden
