‘We are not at a place of full acceptance or equality for trans people yet’

We hear from Robin Dundas, 2018 winner of the British Psychological Society’s Division of Counselling Psychology annual award for carer and service user involvement

Tell me about the first steps on your journey in psychology. I first became interested in psychology having dropped out of art school around the age of 21.
