We are social creatures & most of us learn best alongside others. Especially when we see ourselves reflected in their experiences. This is validating and helps us to normalise emotions and interpersonal difficulties that we are experiencing which is a pathway to building self compassion. It can also help to see how others experience similar things very differently. This can give us hope that our perspective might change, or that our own way of experiencing something isn’t the only way. These are just a few of the reasons I work primarily with groups.

I’m queer in the way I approach my relationships, in the way my brain works, and I’m a white disabled woman. Most of the folks that come to my skills groups are a mixture of LGBTQ+, neuroatypical, disabled, sex workers and/or otherwise social misfits (said in the most loving way possible, these folks are my community). I take a rights not rescue approach to sex work, and I believe trans folks know their genders better than the professionals they have to work with to get access to medical interventions / support.

The groups that I’m going to be running in the next few months are:

Self consent
The radical act of tuning in to & showing up for your needs, desires, limits and boundaries.
A powerful declaration:
I am on my side, I am on my side.

Self Consent

I offer workshops that help people to be more connected to their emotions, desires, boundaries and needs. These classes help people to treat themselves more consensually and to have more intentional and authentic relationships with others.

I can’t wait to learn something together.
