    Sex Coach / Somatic Sex Educator / Intimacy Coach

    Welcome to my site

    I'm looking forward to hearing from you!

  • Intimacy Coaching sessions are...

    - for changing habits around masturbation, porn & sex

    - for addressing issues such as erectile dysfunction, pre-orgasmia, negative body image & premature ejaculation

    - for exploring elements of consent, boundaries & communication

    - for repairing impacts of scar tissue on sexual health & wellbeing

    - for learning about your body, your genitals & your pleasure

    - for couples who want to expand their sexual menu

     

    I want to help you have more choice, more understanding, more awareness & more enjoyment of your body.

    I want to support you to feel more able to notice, value & communicate your sensations and emotions.

    It is my belief that in developing these skills we can be more fulfilled people, lovers, partners & parents.

     

    In order to fully support clients in their journey, all Certified Somatic Educators abide by a Code of Ethics.

  • Individual Sessions

    In person: 90 minutes (£150) / Block of 3 ~ £405 / Block of 5 ~ £675

    Skype: 1 hour (£50) / Block of 3 ~ £135 / Block of 5 ~ £225

    There are many reasons people seek out a sex & intimacy coaching (READ HERE). Your motivation is unique to you, and so that's where we begin. Sessions will involve getting clear on your intention and what you want to learn or change about your relationship to your body, sex, pleasure, and arousal. From there I will guide you and we co-create a contract of content for the sessions. This isn't a case of coming along and 'being done to': you are actively engaged in the learning process.

     

    Sessions might include things like:

    ~ conscious breath work to regulate arousal

    ~ simple meditation to help you stay present during arousal

    ~ practical education of your unique anatomy

    ~ exploring consent, setting & communicating boundaries

    ~ hands on touch & bodywork from me to you

    ~ getting comfortable with receiving & relaxing

    ~ masturbation witnessing

    ~ coaching in movement & body awareness

    ~ sensual massage (breast, genital and/or anal)

     

    Sessions will never include:

    ~ touch that is not 100% invited by you

    ~ sexual intercourse

    ~ touch from student to coach

  • Couples sessions

    Together In Person: 90 minutes (£300) / Block of 3 ~ £810 / Block of 5 ~ £1,350

    Bespoke Packages: a course of individual and combined sessions, please enquire.

    Couples sessions can help to address things like:

    ~ learning more about genital touch/massage

    ~ addressing communication & expression of desires

    ~ re-igniting passion & connection

    ~ performance anxiety issues & sexual confidence

    ~ how to dive deeper with intimacy

     

    The content of sessions is co-created between us, meaning that everything we explore is agreed on in advance. You might have all your sessions together as a couple; or you might come for an individual session each and a combined session.

  • Testimonials

    AS

    I came to Libby as I often numb out during intimate moments and lose touch with myself. Libby listened and offered exercises that helped me reconnect to my body and breath. Through working together I have become more comfortable receiving pleasure and have a stronger sense of what I desire. Libby was supportive and offered a very safe nurturing space.

    CD

    I had never tried anything like this before and was very nervous about starting. Libby is an incredibly patient, kind and considerate teacher, catering the sessions to my comfort zone and specific aims, and creating a safe space in which I could relax and be open about my issues surrounding body image and addiction. She listened to all I said and introduced me to ways I could meaningfully reconnect with myself through breathing and touch. I'm very grateful for all she has done.

    SJ

    I was interested in sessions with Libby to go deeper into my eroticism and power as a woman. Having some sexual trauma in my past I am aware of the physical and mental shut down I sometimes experienced during sex and my tendency to 'transcend the body' through spiritual practices. Ive realised that embodiment is key to living a full and conscious life and the potential to explore this more deeply in an intimate, held space with another woman seemed like a wonderful opportunity. I was not disappointed.

     

    The sessions were hugely enjoyable and very safe. They helped me find my voice, to know more deeply my yes and no, to vocalise my desires and remain fully present to the intimacy of each moment. I experienced new physical sensations, new awareness, learnt new things about my anatomy and experiential exercises to take home and use in my daily practice. These have all contributed to feelings of joy and increased general wellbeing since the sessions began. READ MORE.

    What are your hygiene protocols?

    As a Somatic Sex Educator and Sexological Bodyworker I will always use gloves for any genital or anal touch. I stay educated and informed around STI symptoms and treatments. Other things you might like to know: sheets and towels are fresh for every session, I use a waterproof sheet to prevent oil or fluids permeating the futon mat we work on, I 'smudge' my space and energetically cleanse before and after every session.

    Can I touch you?

    Touch is one-way, from me to you, and I will always remain fully clothed. I am bound by a code of ethics that is in place to ensure you are comfortable, safe and able to say a wholehearted yes or no to anything we explore. The sessions are focussed on your exploration of sensation in your body: this does not include touch from you to me. If you would like to explore sessions that include this please ask and I can recommend other practitioners who work with sexual surrogacy.

    Who are the sessions for?

    I work with people of all genders & sexual orientations.

    I enjoy working with people who are engaged in their personal journey of growth and sexual exploration. Some people have experience exploring their sexuality and are aware of how sex connects with the rest of their lives, others are 'beginners' and only just embarking on the path. Some people have specific questions or issues they want to address, while others are interested in increasing their existing abilities to build and experience pleasure. Think of me as a Personal Trainer for Sex: you might be training for a marathon or you might be just maintaining general fitness.

    All of my clients are adults (at least 18 years old) but there is no upper age limit.

    Preparation, Location & Arrival

    If you need to you can use the towels and shower facilities provided at the start of the session (this is included within your session time), or you can arrive freshly showered. It's a good idea to avoid coffee and other caffeinated products for 24-48 hours before your session so your system is not over-stimulated. Please don't consume alcohol or other drugs before your sessions.

    I work from a dedicated treatment room in my home in Tufnell Park, North London. The full address will be given once a booking has been made and confirmed.

    Please be punctual but not early for your sessions - there is no waiting room.
