- for couples who want to expand their sexual menu
I want to help you have more choice, more understanding, more awareness and enjoyment of your body.
I want to support you to feel more able to notice, value and communicate your sensations and emotions.
It is my belief that in developing these skills we can be more fulfilled people, lovers, partners and parents.

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.
