After graduating in Law from Edinburgh University at 21, I was very successful, in a conventional sense, but deeply unhappy. I came to see that I was very heady, disconnected from my body and from my emotions.
In my thirties, to navigate a way out of this unhappiness, I started to get in touch with my body through improvisational dance, yoga, meditation, tantra, body-mind centering and related practices. Later, I studied core process therapy and gestalt. Alongside this, I set up The Glasgow Zen Group, where I continue to be the principal meditation teacher. Meantime, I carried on a busy professional career as the litigation partner of a successful firm of Glasgow solicitors.
Finding my own way to the potency, pleasure and connectedness of sexuality was complicated and drawn out for me, and I can really empathise with people who feel the same.
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 Betty Martin‘s inaugural practitioner training in The Wheel Of Consent.
I am also working on collaborative projects with colleagues in this developing field of sexology, in particular my Couples Project with Katrina Clark and pioneering work on The Erotic Imaginary with Rachel Connor.
I’m tremendously grateful for the consistent support and encouragement of my partner, Karen.
