Gender Dysphoria refers to distress felt by a person because the gender they were assigned to at birth conflicts with the gender that they identify with. These individuals are also known to be Transgender. There is evidence suggesting that gender dysphoria can be caused by psychological, environmental and biological factors.
It is a common problem worldwide for transgender individuals to face stigmatization (both from their society and themselves) and victimization. As a result, it is common for transgender individuals to face mental health issues.
Psychotherapy can help transgender individuals cope with associated mental health issues. Therapy can be directed towards helping individuals accept the gender they were assigned to at birth, or learning how to manage the issues they face in life. A therapist can also help individuals to understand the various physical interventions that they can undergo to alter their primary and secondary sexual characteristics.
