Why Professional Training?

To work with sexuality, I believe it is essential to have undergone professional training.

Many people are operating without recognised, ethical, reflective training and offering sessions after a weekend workshop or a weeklong retreat.

I am committed to ongoing professional development and choose to work with those who I respect, have been recommended and meet my educational and experiential needs.

I am yet to find any training that fully meets all my needs. There are specific course, workshops and training I will not undertake due to ethical differences, others I try as there is an element of something I want to try.
