About

Alternative relationships and sexual counselling - finding a therapist to help you in these areas can be daunting. How do you know you can talk openly about any sexual difficulties you have without feeling shame? Will they understand your ethical non-monogamous relationship structure and the complexities that arise with it? Will your conversation around your kinks make them uncomfortable? Do they understand the language around your relationship, allowing you to speak freely without explaining things? You would feel anxious enough without the added extras of judgement, misunderstandings, and overreaching concerns citing abuse.
I invite you to leave society's judgements and stigma at the door. I invite exploration (self), removing negative self-judgements, and finding acceptance. You can sit with me and use the language you are comfortable with. You can talk to me about your kinks and how they make you feel. I understand ENM & D/s relationships come with their challenges.
I welcome you into my space, held in safety for you. We start by exploring your past, setting goals, and working together for change. Take the most challenging step and connect today. You can be struggling with other things, just know this space is one you can be honest about who you are, and who you want to be.
