Wheel Of Consent

“True consent is not simply about one person saying yes. Consent is the agreement between two or more people about what will or won’t happen, and – just as importantly – the understanding of who it is for

Developed through more than 15 years of practical application, the Wheel Of Consent is a simple, powerful, navigational tool, which brings choice and clarity to your interactions with others.

The Wheel Of Consent allows you to:


what you feel


what you want


what you enjoy

Imagine this scenario:

Someone comes towards you, arms outstretched, saying “do you want a hug?”

Ask yourself: who is this hug for? Have they decided for you that you need a hug? Or is it that they actually want a hug themselves?

We all encounter situations like this every day, and often we feel pressured into an exchange we don’t really want. The Wheel Of Consent can help you change this.

So tell me what you want, what you really, really want… When it comes to what you genuinely desire are you able to accept it, or does it feel a bit like opening Pandora’s gift-box?

Allow Me

Every day we endure so many things we don’t really want – from adverts to other peoples’ behaviour. The question is: ‘how can I learn to allow things to happen in a way which feels right for me’?

The Perfect Serve

Is your service with a smile, or do you have a hidden agenda? How good are you at giving a gift with absolutely no strings attached? And how much recognition do you want for giving it?

Take, Take, Take

From Black Friday sales to land grabs in the Amazon, most of us would probably say there’s too much taking going on in the world. Taking has become a dirty word. But it doesn’t have to be…
