EXPERIENCE :

Professionally I create a nurturing environment, helping people have personal transformative experiences. My energy is centred and still, with an ability to enable people to feel safe. Most of my life has been involved in creative roles, or roles of service, so I have well-developed verbal, and non-verbal communication skills, and natural sense of intuition.

Besides ongoing professional development with pioneers in the field of consent, and conscious sexuality, my experience includes professional vocal training as well as embodied movement practice, with some of the most respected practitioners all over the world,

My ongoing teachers and mentors include Dr Betty Martin – creator of the Wheel Of Consent, and Joseph Kramer –the founder of Sexological Bodywork, Body Electric, and the foremost teacher of intimate bodywork in the world.

SPECIFIC  EMPHASIS :

Do you want better relationships, stronger boundaries, clearer communication skills? If you want to improve your connection with touch, intimacy, pleasure or relationships I can help you build skills and practices to:

  • Notice what your body feels
  • Trust what your body wants
  • Communicate what your body enjoys

My sessions create safe, gentle, and engaging environments for you to learn about intimacy, have more fun with your body, and (re)discover how to feel.

Using body-based principles I work collaboratively with you, giving you tools to help you (re)connect with yourself, and others.

I offer a space in which you can be held as safely as possible, and fully seen and heard, without judgement.

Choice and the needs of the individual are at the centre of each experience I facilitate, whether in a group, a partnership, or with an individual. All my work is guided by the principles of the Wheel Of Consent

I work mainly with anyone who defines as male, but I absolutely welcome enquiries from anyone who feels drawn to work with me. Please do get in touch with me, if you feel I would be the right person for you to work with – no matter how you define yourself.

 

Developed through several decades of practical application, the Wheel Of Consent is a simple, powerful, navigational tool, which brings choice and clarity to your interactions with others.

Sexological Bodywork is a rapidly growing, professionally recognised field. It is almost unique in therapeutic terms as it allows for very intimate touch, but communicates with, and flows directly from, the needs of each individual body rather than imposing pre-defined criteria. The work is regulated and kept emotionally and physically safe by very strict working protocols.
