Coaching for Men
Men are very often very oppressed by how they should be sexually. The standard idea is that a man should be a masterful lover, should be able to have an erection whenever he wishes and to maintain that erection for as long as he wishes. These ideas aren’t the product of wishful thinking. They are inherent in the culture. If they are made explicit and challenged, then a much fuller idea of what it is like to be a loving man is possible.
Karen has a range of body energy work experience with men. Having worked with both men and women she can also answer the age-old question “What do women want?” She loves to support men in revealing their true selves and learning how to meet women’s needs. She has worked with professional men from CEOs to therapists. As a mature relational practitioner she values the male attributes that are often ignored or ridiculed because they are misunderstood. Addressing these issues can work wonders for men’s solo performance and their performance with their partners.
John understands the pressures men feel under, both to perform and to give their partner pleasure. Men tend to associate sexual pleasure with ejaculation, and are taught that their pleasure is located in their penis.
A lot of men’s sexual problems, such as premature ejaculation or low libido, come from these pressures and assumptions.
He gets men in touch with their real sensation rather than what they believe they ought to be feeling. He helps them to get more aware of their bodies. And how to control levels of arousal and excitement. He can teach men to move away from fantasy and porn and so get out of their heads and into their bodies. He teaches new skills for self-pleasuring.
In this way, from a place of safety and acceptance, John can help men find sexual pleasure all over the body. They learn to move away from tension and performance to discover pleasurable, relaxed whole body arousal, using touch, breath, movement and dialogue.
