Anxiety. It's out there and it's messing things up for us all. But for some of us, it's really messing things up.

As a trans woman, Freiya Benson is super anxious a lot of the time - from feeling unsafe in social situations, to worrying about how she looks and sounds - but over the years she has developed a toolkit for managing anxiety as a trans and/or non-binary person. Exploring specific triggers such as coming out, gender dysphoria, voice anxiety, transphobia, validity, passing and gender expectations, this guide will help you to identify and understand your triggers and anxiety, and build the resilience you need to handle life's challenges.

With advice and personal stories from a range of trans people, this book highlights the importance of self-care and being proud of who you are and highlights how trans people can flourish both individually and as a community when their anxiety is no longer in charge.


'A super practical book about how to cope with anxiety as a trans person, written by a trans person with anxiety. What's not to love? A much-needed book I will be recommending often. My heartfelt thanks go to Freiya, the author; her book will undoubtedly save lives.'
- Dr Pooky Knightsmith

'Anxiety is no respecter of persons; it claims us all! But, for some, that claim robs us of life and swallows us whole! This book is a useful, accessible, understandable, relatable and translatable guide to managing anxiety.'
- Dr. Wenn B. Lawson (PhD) CPsychol AFBPsS MAPS
