BSc (Hons) MSc MBACP (Accred.) AFBPsS
Senior Specialist Psychology Associate
Clinical Research Fellow


Dr Christina Richards

I am an HCPC Registered Doctor of Counselling Psychology and an Associate Fellow of the British Psychological Society (BPS) where I am also Chair Elect of the Division of Counselling Psychology.
I was selected by the executive board of the World Professional Association for Transgender Health (WPATH) to be Lead Chapter Author for Adult Assessment in the Standards of Care Version 8 (SoC v8) revision. I represent the East Midlands to NHS England’s Clinical Reference Group (CRG) on Gender Identity Services and am one of the few psychologists recognised by HM Courts and Tribunals Service as a Specialist in the field of Gender Dysphoria, thus allowing me to prepare medical reports for the Gender Recognition Panel.

Within the NHS, I am Lead Consultant Psychologist at the Charing Cross Gender Clinic.

In terms of academic work, I lecture and publish on trans and non-binary identities; as well as sexualities, and critical mental health – both within academia and to third sector and statutory bodies. I am a co-founder of BiUK a Trustee of the National LGBT Foundation; and co-author of the Bisexuality Report.
