Coming to terms with your sexual or gender identity?
Struggling with aspects of your sexual life?
Feeling disconnected from your body?
Experiencing shame or guilt in relation to your sexual life?
Seeking to construct a more positive and integrated sexuality?
Sexuality and the body is one of my areas of particular interest, where I adopt a sex-positive and LGBTI+ friendly approach. I have had additional training and education in working with issues related to the body, sex, sexuality and gender. I have worked with people of different sexual orientations, with clients dealing with gender identity issues, and with others who engage in alternative sexual practices including kink and BDSM.
Apart from being a psychotherapist, I am also a trained Somatic Sexuality Specialist (ICS). For issues concerning the body and sexuality it is possible to use a more body-orientated approach that involves touch and bodywork. This allows us to directly access body memories while avoiding cognitive defences. Further information about somatic sexuality can be found on Orange Bodies of which I am a founder.
If you wish to work on issues related to sex, sexuality and the body, feel free to contact me to discuss your needs and how we can work together.
