For many people masturbation is simply something functional – little more than a means of relieving pressure. But if we can’t even access our own body’s potential for pleasure, to be truly intimate with ourselves, how can we hope to find a real connection with a partner? Conscious masturbation techniques can provide a meditative practice which goes beyond either solo or partner sex and helps re-connect you with authentic pleasure in your body.
Whether you feel stuck in a rut, or unhealthy patterns with your masturbation, or whether you would like to move your masturbation from functional to fulfilling, Mindful Masturbation Coaching is a great way to begin to build a positive relationship with your own body.
Are you stuck in unconscious patterns of giving or receiving pleasure, or even just ‘tolerating’ an experience – enduring rather than enjoying? This work is aimed at moving beyond these limitations, opening up understanding, and helping you connect intimately or erotically with others in a more fully authentic way.
In intimate situations (including sexual ones) we can often allow ourselves to be coerced into something in the mistaken assumption it is consensual. We can often misconstrue something we do to another person as something we do for them. This is ideal work to experience with a partner, with my guidance, but it’s also possible to experience it with me effectively, fully clothed and with non-erotic touch.
Many people have come to rely on fantasy and porn in their route to pleasure. These often take you out of your body and into your head, resulting in less pleasurable, and even desensitising, experiences. Learning the ways back to your body, can reconnect you with physical intimacy, and even help establish healthier ways of incorporating fantasy or porn with a full body experience.
The process can involve a variety of practices and techniques including mindful masturbation coaching, sensate focus, hands-on bodywork, and core erotic themes, to help shift from your mind to your body, develop new neural pathways and a more conscious understanding of how to create your own pleasure from within your body, rather than relying on an external source.

“After one session I have identified areas I have never used and I’m now opening a new insight into how sexual pleasure can be explored.”
“This was a totally new experience for me to find out the different ways of touch and mapping of where my pleasure points are and to think about how my body is feeling then putting it into words. As the session progressed this got easier and I was able to connect with the feelings and express how I was feeling better. Again, it was interesting to see how my mind and body can work together to experience pleasure such as what I felt.”
