Is this therapy?
No. Whilst I am fully trained and insured in various therapeutic techniques, my role in the work I do with clients is as coach and facilitator for their own self-exploration and healing. I will often teach the women I work with exercises and therapy techniques to use for themselves at home, but I strongly believe in the abilities of the women I work with to find the answers they are looking for within them, and aim to help cultivate a deep trust of their own intuition and the wisdom held within their bodies.
As a coach, I am equal to my client, and together we work to create a strategy towards sexual and spiritual wellbeing that is true to them.
Should I work with you instead of seeing my GP/Mental Health Care Provider/trained Sexual Assault Counselor about an issue?
No! Absolutely not. It really doesn't need to be an either/or situation, we can do this work alongside any counselling or mental health assessments you have booked (with awareness and permission from the people you are working with already), or I can support you as you take the steps to contact your GP (your doctor or medical practitioner if you are not in the UK) or the relevant organisations.
If you have been referred to a Rape and Sexual Abuse Counselling service, Women's Centre, Psychiatrist or professional Therapist by your GP I urge you to keep those appointments, or if you have been considering making contact to do so. This work will be here when you are ready, and if you and your GP think you are ready then I will be thrilled to chat about working together over your free Discovery Call.
Do you have a payment plan?
I have just been raped/assaulted/escaped an abusive relationship. Is this work right for me?
Firstly, I am deeply sorry for what you have experienced, I have deep reverence and BIG love for all that you are. You may not feel like you've got this, but I PROMISE that you do.
Ideally, my clients will have already had some experience of therapy or coaching before coming to me. They will have found things that have worked and things that have not worked and be fully committed to doing the inner and outer work necessary for healing.
When you have just escaped a traumatic environment, your body and mind will be working overtime in survival mode and whilst this absolutely has it's place and serves it's own purpose it is not the best state to be doing healing work in.
During the immediate aftermath of trauma, physical and mental self-care are what is needed. The excavation and exploration can come later when the ground has rested.
An article with suggestions on how to navigate this stage of the process is currently being written and will be available on my blog within the upcoming days.
That being said I never say never. Everyone heals at their own pace and needs different kinds of support so if you are feeling drawn to my coaching programme book a free Discovery Call so we can get a feel for your individual situation and needs. If I (or you) feel like the offerings advertised here are not right for you at this time I will never leave you without an alternative option or a plan for where to go next.
I have ongoing mental health issues/have been diagnosed with a mental health issue, can we still work together?
Of course! Provided either your mental health issue is manageable, you are under the care of a Mental Health Care Provider and your GP is kept up to date with your status, or you have been stable for a considerable length of time and have access to support should this change.
Do you only work with trauma survivors?
My work is largely focused on women recovering from sexual trauma, however I know that trauma comes in many forms, so if the description of my programme speaks to you, contact me to book a free Discovery Call and see if this work feels like the right fit for you!
Can we work online?
Yes! All my services are provided 100% online via Zoom (an online video conferencing platform) which can be easily downloaded completely free in less than the time it takes to make a cuppa! We can see and speak to each other face to face, and you don't even have to change out of your pyjama bottoms.
Can we work in person?
At this time I do not offer any in-person services outside of my limited workshops - Facebook, Instagram and Twitter are where I keep people up to date with when and where these are being held so if you haven't already, follow me on social media to stay connected.
Are you LGBTQ+, alternative relationship/family dynamic or kink friendly?
