Notice what your body feels
For many people sex and intimacy can be challenging, which may direct them to supress or turn away from the natural instincts their body is providing because it does not feel safe. I offer practices and tools to become more fully aware of what you really feel – sensation or emotion – and an environment in which to engage with this safely.
Trust what your body wants
Once you understand what you feel it becomes easier to know what it is you truly want – or don’t want. But it’s not always easy to trust your desires. I offer body-based practices to open the door to more fully engaging with what feels good to you, exploring your authentic pleasure in the way that only you know how.
Communicate what your body enjoys
When you’re able to notice and trust what feels good to you, the key to fulfilling interactions is finding ways to express your desires. Like any muscle, building these skills takes work, so I offer a learning environment in which to develop and practice new ways of communicating your needs and getting them met.
Life-skills for your love-life
Although most of us tend to equate the idea of consent with sex, I believe consent is actually a fundamental life skill. If we want to learn to have consent, choice and agreement in the bedroom, we need to learn to have it everywhere else first! Read more about the Wheel Of Consent which underpins all my work.
"My work with Michael was transformative. Michael's great skill lies in his intuitive sense and our work together provided a gateway to a deeper connection in my body/ mind"
"One moment touched me immensely deeply – opening a tiny chink in a rather well protected piece of antique personal armour. Thank you for holding the space with such beautiful sensitivity”
"Michael is very perceptive and supportive. I learnt a great deal in quite a short time, and experienced an opening up of what had been very shut down!"
