Each of us has within us an aliveness; a vitality that expresses who we are. Each of us has the capacity to be potent, powerful, affectionate, creative, active and connected. We live most fully when we are able to maintain contact with our own bodies and our own inner ecosystems. From here we are better able to appreciate the wholeness of ourselves within our relationships and to interface with and contribute to the world around us.
Integrating our sexuality is about being comfortable and responsible wielding the power that is our inherent nature; whether we choose to share and connect it in loving play with others, or focus it in creative or other transformational expressions. Our bodies are the container for our Life-Force Energy.
Healthy systems Contain, Connect and Create
Many of us, sometimes without our conscious awareness, have experienced life events that overwhelm our systems, bypassing the natural neural pathways that allow for connection, intimacy and satisfaction, and prioritising those geared towards survival.
The experience of such Trauma causes us to switch into more protective and reactive parts of the brain. Our capacity to experience higher cognitive function and to respond to the world around us in healthy, boundaried and pro-social ways becomes constrained.
Discovering your Integrated Sexual Self is a process of increasing your capacity to tolerate and enjoy the full range of life again: pleasure and pain, togetherness and aloneness, certainty and confusion. There is a place in you that can navigate everything life throws at you, prioritise what you need to thrive and grow in your life and make peace with the past held in your body so you can lean into your future with an inner strength, soft breathe and open curiosity.

Internal Family Systems
Internal Family Systems (IFS) is a powerful Evidence-Based Modality, rapidly growing in popularity for practitioners and clients worldwide. It was developed in the 1980's by Family Therapist and Clinician Dr Richard Schwartz as he began to identify the healing potential lying within even the most disorganised patients, particularly those with extreme eating disorders or the tendency for self-harm.
IFS has subsequently evolved and expanded to treat a wide-range of physical and psychological conditions and behaviours and now commands an impressive and expanding community of practitioners across the globe specialising in everything from couples therapy, through trauma and addiction, Self-led parenting, recovery from eating disorders, PTSD recovery and much more.
I work with IFS to support all those seeking more Self-leadership, the unlocking of their innate potential, personal development, the resolution of trauma through the body, integration from childhood devlopmental or acute adult trauma, plus recovery from sexual abuse and the resolution of any perceived sexual or relational dysfunction.
Even if you're new to therapy, IFS will support to reconnect you to the deeper, Self-guidance system inherent in your body.
Are you wanting to identify and heal any limiting intimacy habits, take back ownership of your body and reclaim your right to healthy, heart-warming sex?
Celebrating Nature and our Essential Nature
Funding Reforestation through Clinical Donations
I'm delighted to announce that, since Covid, for every therapy session conducted, 5 trees have been planted by means of a donation to my nominated Charity Treesisters: a feminine reforestation movement. As much as our bodies need to breathe and heal, so do our Forests. I have now reached my target of planting 10,000 Trees (Sept '23) and will be looking to close this chapter of my contribution and to orient some funding to a new cause, which will be announced later this year.
Trees donated to plant at sites of significant ecological impact as at Sept 2023: 10,000 Trees
Note: On 1st November 2022 Treesisters migrated their donation platform to Just-Giving and have subsequently removed the Tree Count so I have been counting it manually since then. You can make a donation direct to my new fundraising page here at any time until I remove this page and close the fundraiser. I have revised the target from an overall Tree-count target to a £4,000 target total donation, which will equate to approximately 10,000 trees and the number of trees planted post Nov 2022 has been transferred to an estimate based on a 40p cost per tree planted, which has now risen to 45p per tree.
A heartfelt thank you to all my clients for supporting me to make this positive and meaning contribution to global environmental restoration. Go us!
