Somatic Sex Therapy, Sexological Bodywork and Intimacy Coaching in Glasgow, Scotland for Individuals and Couples
“Of all the forms of unhappiness, sexual unhappiness is the most tragic, because it is avoidable; if we only knew how”
In matters of sexuality and intimacy, sometimes we need communication, learning and understanding, and sometimes we need acceptance and touch. But most of all, we need connection and warmth.
I offer the chance to explore and improve sexual issues, intimacy, sensual and erotic pleasure, sexual confidence and expression for individuals and couples, working with you through talking, exploration, education and consensual touch, in a way which is warm, open, collaborative, agreed and – most importantly – safe.
We live in a society suffering an epidemic of sexual unhappiness and dissatisfaction. Why? Because we think of sexuality as something we do, rather than as a vital part of who we are. I believe that the cure for our unhappiness isn’t a technical fix, it’s relational: healing the splits and conflicts within ourselves so we become joyful, feeling, embodied and whole, and dealing with the obstructions which inhibit us from being happily intimate with others. And that can’t be done just through talking; our bodies need to be released back into their natural state of pleasure and receptivity from an often habitual -and largely unconscious – state of disconnection or tension.
Finding our way to the pleasure and connection of intimacy is complicated for many of us. I am here to help you resolve your sexual and relationship issues so you can live a more joyful, connected life.
I am a seasoned somatic sex therapist and sexologist, working primarily through the body [ I’m a member of The Association Of Somatic and Integrative Sexologists] and based in the leafy West End of Glasgow, Scotland, a few minutes from excellent direct rail links to Edinburgh [75 minutes from Central Edinburgh] and the rest of the UK, and conveniently located for Glasgow International Airport.
I have written extensively about sexuality, intimacy, somatic sexology and relating, and you can find my articles here.These give a broad sense of the wide range of my work.
I can work with you individually or as a couple, and I can work with you:
- by telephone
- in person here in Scotland
- or a mixture of these, for example, a weekend plus Zoom combination, which might be useful if you’re outwith Scotland, in London say, or just want to combine focused practice with a getaway break in Glasgow.
My Couples work, in particular, is ideal for Zoom. I have clients in London, Manchester and New York.
I know that embarking on sex therapy can be challenging, so I offer a free and completely confidential Exploratory Conversation, either in person in Glasgow [or, by arrangement, in Edinburgh] or by telephone [or Zoom] so you can find out more. There’s an outline of the possible starting process for Individuals here and for Couples here.
