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 connection and touch. But most of all, we need acceptance and warmth.
I offer the chance to explore and improve sexual issues, intimacy, sensual and erotic pleasure, sexual confidence and expression both 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, or something that’s done to us, 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 become joyful, feeling, embodied and whole, and dealing with the obstructions which inhibit us from being happily intimate with others when we want [and not be “done to”].
None of that can be done through talking alone; our bodies need to be released back into their natural state of pleasure, receptivity and expression from an often habitual -and largely unconscious – state of disconnection and 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 and sensual 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 particularly love working with Couples who have tried talking therapy, found that it hasn’t entirely worked for them, but don’t know where to go.
I know that thinking of embarking on sex therapy can be challenging, so I offer as one option 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. I usually have these in my studio, but am flexible, depending on what works for you.
And if you’d just prefer a chat to learn more and see if I can help, why not buy me a coffee? [and possibly a cake too!]. We can meet in a cafe of your choice and we can just have an informal, open conversation. If you text me on 07545 707751 or email me at email@example.com, we can arrange that.
There’s an outline of the possible starting process for Individuals here [where I also set out the various modes in which you can work with me] and for Couples here, but I’d always encourage you to contact me at the level which feels comfortable for you.
