As a young man I was very much in my head and not at all confident sexually. I started to get in touch with my body through improvisational dance and related practices in my twenties. I explored core process and gestalt therapies.
I am the founding teacher of The Glasgow Zen Group, which I have run for over 30 years.
I was a solicitor and partner in a successful law practice for 35 years.
When I discovered Tantra in 2003, by accident, it changed my life. It made me feel more alive, more confident and much more embodied.
Seven years ago my Tantra teacher, Hilly Spenceley, encouraged me to offer tantric sessions and I found it answered a need in me to be in loving service to others.
To this end I trained in Sexological Bodywork with Joseph Kramer, Deej Juventin and Uma Furman, qualifying in 2015.
I have since done further training, including Caffyn Jess Intimacy Educator Programme and Dr Betty Martin’s inaugural year long practitioner training in The Wheel Of Consent.
I am also working on collaborative projects with colleagues in this developing field of sexology.
Finding my own way to the potency and pleasure of my body has been complicated for me, so I can really identify with people who feel the same.
I could not have done any of this without the constant support and encouragement of my beloved partner Karen.
She and I sometimes work together, but she is now primarily engaged in developing her own unique work.
