This proposal to restrict counseling is an affront to a clients right to choose the way they want to address the questions in their lives. This goes against the code of counseling. It also goes against the speech rights of counselors.
I have known many young people who questioned their gender or orientation at one time. Counseling gave them a chance to explore their feelings and options. Ultimately many decided not to adopt a gay or transgender identity. Why would you deny them that choice?
