Sally to Shay

We are all told, “live your life to the fullest”; I am here to do just that. Shay Robertson FTM serves as a vessel to aid you on your journey of transformation.

Sally to Shay is a powerful account of one person's struggle to love themselves and find self worth. A traumatic early life could have led Sally to believe that happiness is something only experienced by others. But true love and happiness is worth working for, and finding new hope and support, ‘Sally’ spends months under the surgeon's knife to become his true self ‘Shay’.

Sally to Shay is a must read for individuals and families going through the same turmoil. Medical references and graphic surgical pictures are included for reference and self help. This book has been written to assist others on their journey, to help them understand necessary procedures, and for family and friends sharing the transition journey, to give them an insight into what it entails

So sit back relax and read on...

Training for tomorrow, today

Transgender equality presentation for training in the workplace Providing a factual presentation of the transitional journeys of two people, including language and terminology, pronouns, intersex, equality in the workplace, how you can help, and so much more.

National Gender Training was set up by Michelle Clarke in answer to the growing demand locally, and nationally, for training in and around the subject of being transgender.

In collaboration with Shay Robertson, the business manager, they had been giving talks of their journeys, to local NHS staff, that were so well received that they were being asked back time and again. Seeing this demand brought about the formation of this business in 2020.

During 2019, Michelle and Shay started giving talks to various groups of mental health nurses within Northamptonshire, and these were so well received that they often received a standing ovation at the end of the talk. Then, in March 2020, the UK was put into lockdown because of the Coronavirus, and Michelle decided to expand the talks into something better. The finished article was a 3.5-hour presentation dealing with all aspects of transition, both male to female and female to male, as well as covering non-binary and other forms of gender incongruence. Included in the course is language & terminology, pronouns, gender clinics, key stages in each pathway, 2 videos of our transitions, equality in the workplace, important legislation and so much more. © National Gender Training Call on: 07513 017579
