Names are an integral part of the human condition and taking on a new name can be one of the most meaningful steps for a transgender or gender non-conforming person in validating and expressing who they are. Adopting a new name to reflect this is a significant part of the journey.
A naming or re-naming ceremony allows you to share and celebrate this occasion, surrounded by those you love. Like all milestones, I feel it is so important to honour the journeys we experience together.
If you want to celebrate the changing of your name or indeed mark your transition, it would be my privilege to chat with you about how we could best celebrate your journey. Every ceremony will be unique, comprising of individual elements which will celebrate a new beginning, a new name, and the next steps on a joyous journey through life.

The years will never take away
Our chance to start anew,
It's only the beginning now
So dreams can still come true.
