After becoming a lawyer and partner at 26, I was very successful in a conventional sense, but deeply unhappy. I was poor at forming and maintaining intimate relationships. I gradually came to understand that I was stuck in my head, disconnected both from my body and from my heart.
In my thirties, to free myself from this unhappiness, I started to get in touch with my body and my feelings through dance, yoga, tantra, psychotherapy, body-mind centering and other practices. I discovered the joy and aliveness of my body and my sexuality. I worked with wonderful teachers such as Janis Claxton and Nancy Stark Smith [dance], Hilly Spenceley and John Hawken [tantra]. I studied core process therapy and then gestalt psychotherapy for four years. In 1990, I became a Buddhist and set up The Glasgow Zen Group, where, 30 years later, I continue to be the principal meditation teacher. Encouraged by my tantra teacher, I started offering sessions in 2012. I was keen, and remain keen to work with people who experience significant blocks to their sexual fulfillment, as I did for much of my early life.
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 have written extensively about sexuality. You can find my articles here ,which give some idea of the scope and range of my work
