I look forward to working together!
Here is a little about me, why I chose to be in service in this way and the different ways you can work with me.
Six years ago, I ended a 6 year long partnership, quit my job as a Psychologist, sold my home and left the country- burn out, depleted and yet, entirely liberated. As much as I loved my partner and was deeply fulfilled by my job, I was not entirely living life on my own terms and it was soul- wrenching!
Letting go of all that I knew and the end of this relationship was the catalyst to really understand what my heart and soul was yearning for.
As I reflected on the end of my relationship, I realised I had been shutdown from my emotions, sexuality and my joy for life for years. I had struggled to express my pain to my partner and we both felt deep grief, resentment, fear and confusion as to how we had found our way here. I searched for someone who I felt would really go there with us, but could not find anyone who I felt comfortable enough personally or professionally to talk to about these sensitive issues.
I felt ashamed of my body, my pleasure, my desire and found it difficult to really prioritise my self care and needs. I also felt ashamed that I had found myself in this place!
I realised that this is what my heart and soul so deeply yearned for - depth of emotional and sexual intimacy and joy in my life again!
Emotional intimacy and human connection is one the most significant factors associated with our sense of wellbeing as humans and a very foundational core need, on which the rest of our wellbeing can thrive.
I saw a few people around me experience intimacy at a depth, but not many! I wondered what it was about me that contributed to my shut down. I realised that I had no real experience of such depth of intimacy and honouring and had deep trauma formed in intimacy.
A key to really being able to create a new reality for ourselves, is being able to have an embodied experience or contact with the innate dignity and sacredness of our human experience- our sexuality and trauma in particular!
I knew at some level that the childhood emotional trauma I'd experienced and the VERY confusing and dishonouring sex I had in my early teenage years had a lot to do with the shame and fear I experienced around sex and speaking my needs, boundaries and desires in my relationships.
I was and continue to be supported and trained by some of the most deeply embodied teachers, practitioners and coaches on my journey. These big hearted people helped me realise that none of my experiences were anything to be ashamed of and actually- the very medicine I needed to form the resilience, skills and depth of embodied wisdom I can now share with you! My experience taught me that all these challenges were supporting me to grow in character and spirit to live my purpose.
Through out my journey I continued to develop my personal and professional skills and knowledge of holding space for and supporting the integration of trauma and human emotion in the body through many modalities, including somatosensory experiencing and Yoni Mapping Therapy.
Traumatic experiences and unprocessed emotion can live in our tissue, fascia and nervous system and cause us to feel unsafe or numb to our current experiences, despite no real threat in our current reality.
Integrating these emotions and experiences trauma in the body requires us to also release any old limiting beliefs and unhelpful patterns of relating attached to the memories and experiences, to step into our true and empowered nature. I witnessed myself and continue to witness my clients creating deeply honouring and fulfilling relationships, lifestyles and opportunities for themselves and others by investing the time and energy in themselves to understand and meet these needs.
Our true nature is innately wise. We have within us, everything we need to return to feeling whole, connected and to thrive. Our nature is erotically innocent, blissful, joyful and easeful! Whether consciously or not, we, as humans, all seek to connect to this inside ourselves. I believe that is why sexual intercourse is such a primal and foundational core desire to human- because it is a portal that allows us to experience this wholeness and unity with ourselves and another human.
The Yoni Mapping Therapy I offer is for ALL female bodied individuals, from all walks of life. My commitment is to support you to reconnect to your body and womb's innate wisdom.
Our journey together, is an experience of being held unconditionally in loving presence and deep body/soul listening. The body knows what to do in this space to naturally heal itself. All past experiences or traumas that are ready, find integration and harmony. We simply allow, and bare loving witness to the process of unfolding.
My service is a deep commitment to providing a safe, sacred and unconditional space to support people to find deep fulfilment and soulful union in their intimacy with self and in relationship with other through my embodied wisdom of lived experience and the tools, practices and modalities I have worked with over the last 10 years supporting people.
What I do fills my heart deeply, it is such an honour and a privilege to be of service to you and your wisdom.
