I am constantly asked how did I get into the business of being an Intimacy & Sex Educator and Coach.
The answer to that is actually quite funny. My whole career had been in administration, working in various capacities from Receptionist to Executive Secretary. About 10 years ago I became very restless and wanted to pursue something in alternative therapies of some sort because I loved working with different modalities for my own personal journey.
I eventually did my NLP training and was working with a girlfriend to come up with an area that I wanted to make my niche. We were going through a particular process and every time I said health and emotional well being, my friend kept saying no. She was actually being quite harsh with me at the time and really kept pushing me, which to this day I’m so grateful for, because out of my mouth came tumbling the word, sex!
We both looked at each other and she said, “yes that’s it, you know more about sex than most people I know” and so that is how my business came about.
Of course since then, I’ve done a lot more study, Tantra and Sexological Body Work™ and attended and assisted at many sacred sexuality workshops and teachings. So in the beginning I solely used NLP, working with the mindset to sort people’s problems out as well as more generalised activities which I resourced through doing extensive research and lots of reading.
I now have many different tools and resources to draw on and am far more educated around intimacy and sex than I was back then!
I live my life with enthusiasm and passion and quite simply love my life. I’m fit and healthy and am totally comfortable with my sexuality and who I am as a sexual woman and my desire is for all women to feel the same way.
I am passionate about sex, sex education, intimacy, conscious connection, loving relationships, eating good nourishing organic food and living a clean and conscious lifestyle. Friends and people I meet through business are always commenting on my energy and vitality, however it wasn’t always this way.
Almost 22 years ago, just after my daughter was born, apart from having un-diagnosed post natal depression, I was diagnosed with a “chronic” auto immune disease. I didn’t really know how to handle that information, so I buried my head in the sand and I ate and became more and more miserable. I totally shut down my sexuality and along with that unknowingly started to shut down my emotions. Life was an existence, I had a beautiful daughter however realised that my marriage was not really working out and I was completely stuck and didn’t know how to move forward.
Finally I reached a point where I knew something had to be done, so the first thing I did was set about losing almost 20 kilos which had crept onto my frame. As the weight came off, I started coming into some major realisations and the first big challenge to get through was realising that my marriage was over.
Then the most bizarre thing happened, within a week of my marriage being over, I started feeling some sexual stirrings deep within. It took me by surprise as it dawned on me what was going on, as I hadn’t really felt that way for years. My MOJO was back! I was pretty stunned and confused about this sexual energy popping up in the middle of my marriage ending however I decided to embrace it and not turn it off again!
Since that time I’ve realised how important good health is as well as not burying emotions as we tend to do. I’ve also fully embraced my sexuality and realised that this is the center of creativity and having a healthy sexual relationship is also part of the equation. So my journey of self discovery started, with doing some deep inner work on myself on all levels, searching the spiritual path and uncovering a lot about myself and my sexuality along the way.
