One to One Offering...

I am currently offering a limited number of 1:1 sessions per month with sliding scale payment available, for more information on the way I work, pricing and to express interest, see below. 

I can help you with ...

  •        Self esteem, confidence and body-image issues

  •        Struggling to get pleasure from sex

  •        Issues relaxing when being intimate

  •        Issues feeling the need to be performative during sex

  •        Beliefs that sex is for others, but not for you

  •        Experiencing discomfort or pain associated with penetrative sex

  •        Building sexual communication skills

  •        Finding clarity around what you do and don’t want when it comes to your experience of sex and relationships

  •        Clarifying personal and sexual boundaries and building confidence to uphold them

  •        Creating a trigger-plan

  •        Navigating and managing triggering and flashbacks

  •        Reconnecting with desire and rediscovering what pleasure can mean for you

  •        A place to be heard, seen and nurtured

  •        Signposting to other organisations and creating a supportive action plan in the aftermath of trauma

I help women reconnect with their sexual power and create new relationships with their post-trauma experienced bodies; relationships built on foundations of deep respect, trust, compassion and joyful possibility.

I use a combination of EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique), hypnotic meditations and visualisations, coaching and intuitive guidance to hold a space where healing can take place and clarity can be found.

Whichever model of support you choose for our work together, whether it is a stand-alone session or more long-term engagement it’s important to note I am not acting as your therapist.

 

Your body is your greatest teacher and healer, I will help you reconnect; tapping into the wisdom within and lovingly guiding you back to yourself. Together we will dive deep into my tool-box of resources, practices and self-help techniques and pull out what we think will be the best fit for you.

SEXUAL POWER? SEXUAL WELLBEING? SOUNDS A BIT FLUFFY TO ME...

My 1:1 practice alongside my sex education facilitation are founded on the belief that sex is not about sexual penetration, it's about connection; perhaps with ourselves, another person or the Universe around us.

Sexual wellbeing, and reconnecting with your 'Sexual power' means something different for everyone.

 

This is not about sexual prowess (whatever that means), having something resembling the 'stereotypical' sex life that is sold to us as 'ideal' in the media, or miraculously spontaneous and mutually experienced sexual desire, culminating not only in fantastic sex but also all the orgasms you could dream of.

 

Sexual wellbeing, for me, is knowing what sexual joy and harmony mean and look like for you individually and within your relationship and being at peace with that.

 

And sexual power, for me, is the ability to know and connect with your own desires and boundaries and be able to communicate them, honour them, and explore them, feeling safe in your body and the sexual spaces you create to expand in.

 

This is the standard I hold for my clients and it's this place of knowing and trusting yourself and being able to love and hold space for your own growth and exploration that I know I can help you move towards.

How I work 

Sessions with me are conducted in a consultation style, we will discuss the issues you are presenting with and prioritising for exploring, and use a combination of relationship and intimacy re-education, therapeutic modalities (such as Hypnotherapy, Emotional Freedom Technique, Parts Therapy and Inner Child) along with self-compassion and boundaries work.
What a session together looks like will depend very much on what issues you wish to work on and then we will intuitively work together to find the support that is most needed by your system at this time.


I may recommend other forms of support to enhance the work we do together, or I may refer you to someone who I feel is better suited to work with you due to specialising in a field closer to your needs or having different experience or tools to me.
 

Sliding scale pricing 


Pay it forward fee - £80 per hr (pay for a future session for someone who needs it, this may include members of LGBTQ+ communities, BIPOC communities or SW communities, or anyone experiencing hardship due to cost of living crisis. 
 

Suggested fee - £50 per hr

 

No questions asked fee - £25 per hr (for anyone for whom £50 would be financially harmful) 

 

A lower fee may be available, so please do contact me directly if you feel called to work together, let me know your situation and we will find a donation amount that feels comfortable to you, while still honouring the transformation being undertaken. Money should NOT be barrier to growth and healing.
