As a woman I had complete trust in John. Everything was fully discussed and boundaries were very clear. The work I did with John allowed me to get more in touch with who I am and what my needs are. Previous to this I had never been sure of saying what I wanted and what I didn’t want in terms of relationships and connection. My self confidence increased and my shame and guilt lessened. I felt enormous relief with his lack of judgement and his gentle approach. Most important was the huge trust I had in him immediately.
Working with John has been a wonderful, life enhancing experience. I was initially apprehensive but felt drawn to take a chance and begin to explore the possibilities of being fully embodied. I can now attest to the power of tantric touch, held in a beautiful and safe space. John’s deeply caring and intuitive approach, combined with a thorough physiological understanding of the body, has provided a richly rewarding experience, far beyond a typical massage
Having sessions with John has been life changing for me. I feel safer and more confident in my body. I feel more, I am more sexual and I feel more free. Being a woman, it has been fabulous doing this kind of work with a man and I now feel more able to go forward and have sexual relationships. I wholeheartedly recommend seeing John. I was worried that he might be quite directive, and have a fixed way of working, but those worries were groundless. He very much works with you in a collaborative way, which I find empowering. He offers a safe space to discover things about yourself, as well as to find out what you need and want, and how to be able to express that confidently.
This man is an exceptional man: kind, generous, beautifully gentle and considered, with a wealth of knowledge..love him to pieces..you will learn a lot in his company
John has a wealth of experience in the personal development and sexuality field. I’ve known him for 15 years and in that time I’ve come to know him as someone who is sincere, trustworthy and immensely knowledgeable. The private work I have done with him has been healthy and supportive. He creates a trustworthy environment that enables deep healing, learning and growth
John is a kind, visionary and trustworthy practitioner. Working with him over the past few years has allowed me to feel safe and relaxed in opening up to my eroticism and vulnerability. I love his wide ranging knowledge and his compassionate way of seeing and integrating so many aspects of sexuality
My partner and I had become quite stuck and repetitive in our sexual relating. He would always initiate, I felt unconfident, and neither of us knew what to do about it. We tried talking therapy but. although it helped a bit with our communication, it didn’t seem to help at the level needed.
Working with John really helped my partner and I to reconnect with one another as well as give us a new and better framework for understanding sex and intimacy. This has been invaluable to us and I have found it really liberating. We both feel better connected to ourselves, each other and our sensuality. Due to the coronavirus epidemic, we worked with John remotely once a fortnight for four months using Zoom which worked really well. I would highly recommend sessions with him
I wanted to reclaim the sexuality I had when I was younger, and which fell by the wayside with a long marriage and children, but was apprehensive about what would happen. Although it felt risky to work with a man, I felt it was the right thing to do, but I was worried that the focus would be quite high energy and sexual. When I first made contact, we had a long telephone conversation, which helped me get more of a sense of how we would work together, and his suggestion that I just come to his studio to see what it was like and chat, and then decide whether it felt right for us to work together helped with my anxiety. In a two hour bodywork session, I was concerned that we might immediately jump into quite risky things, but we always talked over and agreed everything before we started any bodywork. In particular, we agreed the boundaries, which hugely lessened my vigilance and helped me be more aware of what I was feeling. John brings a sense of peace and curiosity to his work. His humour and open relating helped me to gradually relax and allowed my own curiosity to emerge. This was particularly helpful, as I had often been over focused on what the other person wanted, and how they wanted me to be.
I found his patience and warmth supportive; I felt enabled and empowered.
Trustworthy and kind
I approached John with my partner during a winter riddled with painful sex, frustration and anxiety. After a confusing experience working with a tantra coach I was looking for support by someone who is more aligned with my values and who fully embodies what they preach. John is humble, passionate and generous. From the very first session he has been fully transparent about his values and his approach and insisted we only work with him if we feel 100% aligned. This sense of integrity made me feel very at ease. He inspired me to drop the idea that something needed to be ‘fixed’, and helped us focus on widening our concept of sex and exploring the limitless possibilities that become evident when you let go of what’s culturally prescribed! He gave us exercises to do at home that were mostly focused on relaxation and embodiment – kind of meditations, really. After some time I noticed my bouts of anxiety became less frequent and a playful confidence took its place more often – a feeling that we’re on an exciting journey of discovering our own and each other’s sexuality. This is the attitude shift we needed. It’s still work in progress, and maybe it will always be, refocusing again and again after you lose track – much like any other spiritual practice
