Physical Health

Four Pillars will endeavour to look after and support people regarding their physical health.

Unlike our other 3 pillars physical health can and does cover a wide range of aspects in a person’s life. From health and fitness to living as transgender. Because of this we cover the following:

•Sign posting to various public and third sector organisations such as; NHS Grampian for smoking cessation courses, to assist a person in addressing their smoking and the health impact it has on them.

•Supporting an individual wanting Gender Reassignment Services in our peer to peer T-Folk support group and/or sign posting them to counselling and medical practice professionals.

•Helping an individual struggling with activities, get into mainstream fitness; we do this by offering taster sessions in sports and/or sign posting an individual to other services such as LEAP Sport

 

Four Pillars recognises the link between physical health and sexual health and will not work with an individual on just one topic. Four Pillars understands that a person needs to be in a physically stable place before they can truly start to look after their sexual health and address their sexual behaviours, in order to reduce the risk of HIV & STIs, whilst maintain the sex life they desire.
