Sexological Body Work Session

 

Who are these sexological body work sessions for?

Sexological body work is about you connecting to your body, to its sensations and to your sexuality.

Clients often want to:

  • enhance their enjoyment of their sexuality
  • increase their pleasure during masturbation and/or partner sex
  • to break free of shame, guilt and fear about their sexuality
  • to deal with sexual challenges such as premature ejaculation or difficulty to orgasm

How does a sexological bodywork  session work?

These sessions are educational. Together we craft a contract for the specific learning you want to take place in the session.

Body work and touch may be part of the session, if so it’s one way and I remain fully clothed.

You are an active participant in the process, supporting yourself to discover what you need, what you like, what you want to understand and what new skills you want to develop.

My role is a guide or coach and I’ll be supporting you to notice what’s happening in your body through any touch that may be happening.

Catherine made it so easy for me to change the pattern of premature ejaculation which I’d been experiencing  for many years. Her clear guidance through the skills and acceptance of me was a total game changer!! Tim

Some clients have received the following sessions:

  • ejacultory choice skills
  • genital mapping: learning the structures of arousal
  • anal mapping: to release tension and find pleasure
  • boundaries and consent
  • masturbation coaching
  • scar tissue healing
  • breathwork
  • couples work

How would it be for you to be met with openness, compassion, and non-judgment by someone who’s knowledgeable about sexuality? From someone who makes it their business to know the most up to date information about sexuality and who can offer you practical support, guidance and humour around your sexual challenges?

As a sexological body-worker and  coach I’m passionate about demystifying sexuality, to free it from the clutches of shame, to bring it back to the place of sacredness and to support people in connecting with this powerful life force that streams through us!!!

I am qualified Sexological body-worker, a professional member of The Association of Somatic and Integrative Sexologists (ASIS), and Association of Certified Sexological Bodyworkers and I abide by the ACSB code of ethics.

What to expect after a sexological body work session

  • greater sexual empowerment
  • access to embodied sexual pleasure
  • better masturbation skills
  • deeper relaxation and connection to own body
  • ejaculatory choice
  • sexually exciting relationships
  • more varied orgasms

What I have learned from Catherine about female sexual anatomy has amazed me, I only wish I’d known this earlier in my life! If you are thinking about booking a session don’t hesitate, your life will change!!- SP

Premature Ejaculation Support

Premature Ejaculation

 

Premature Ejaculation (PE) is men’s most prevalent sex problem and yet, being shrouded in shame and embarrassment, it’s not openly talked about. While men experiencing impotence can visit their GP and get some ‘blue pills’, they’re unlikely to receive any beneficial support for premature ejaculation.

As men get older the likelihood of PE increases, but few men have successful strategies for dealing with it; they often avoid intimacy, blame it on their partners, pretend its ok, when deep inside it isn’t, or just declare that is part of getting older and then must learn to live with it. All resulting in a lack of sex, which we all know is essential for our well-being and success of most intimate relationships.

Why does PE occur? Culturally many men are fed on a diet of porn leading it to become the chief sex educator in most western countries. Most porn is fast, genital, friction based and focused on the goal of ejaculation.

When we watch porn and masturbate at the same time essentially we’re programming our bodies to follow the same upward trajectory as we see on the screen. This puts huge pressure on our nervous systems by pushing us into sympathetic arousal leading to rapid ejaculation, the penis has no other choice!

premature ejaculation

The whole process is fed by our dopamine reward system, in that it feels good to ejaculate, so we keep on repeating the same habit and hard wire it into our neurology. What we are dealing with here is an addiction to ejaculation.

Like with all addictions, it is possible to break this habit, by committing to a practice that supports the creation of new pleasure pathways.

Learning how to regulate arousal with the breath, along with moving the pelvis to open it to create more space for sexual energy, combined with exploring new ways to touch the genitals and the whole body when engaging in masturbation is the way to the solution!

Men’s partners report the shift from goal orientated sex, to a more playful sex where ejaculation is a choice and the intention is intimacy, creates more fulfilling sex and happier longer-lasting partnerships.

I’ve been successfully working with men and couples supporting them to make this shift from premature ejaculation to ejaculatory choice by teaching them my ‘Ejaculatory Choice Program.’ Through which I’ve witnessed hugely successful results.

Now’s the time to make the changes and step into Ejaculatory Choice so you can have the fulfilling sexual experiences you’ve been longing for. If you want to discuss joining the program and having 1:1 coaching sessions with me then email: catherine@tantricawakening.org

Spiritual Sexual Shamanic Experience (ISTA level one UK) 16th – 22nd October 2017

Spiritual Sexual Shamanic Experience ISTA Level One UK 

Spiritual… Sexual ….Shamanic … each of these three areas alone carry enormous charge for shadow and misuse of power as well as potential for liberation, freedom, love and joy.

If you are ready to transform your life, this experiential 7-day ISTA Level One UK event is for you.

Thousands of people have gone through the Spiritual Sexual Shamanic Experience worldwide. The individuals cover a wide age range from 18 to 80, varied backgrounds, all sexual orientations, those who are gender fluid or trans, differing professions from students, artists, surgeons, and people from many different religions, races and nationalities.

Some people take the Spiritual Sexual Shamanic Experience for their own personal evolution, to gain a deeper self-connection and to enrich their relationships and empower their lives.

The ISTA Level 1 training is pure alchemical magic. Just when I thought there wasn’t room for huge growth and transformation in my being … my doors were blown open. I learned, I healed, I grew and i was transformed into a bigger expression of who I am. I have nothing but love and gratitude for this experience and the entire ISTA staff. Life changing. Kevin Brizendine

What does the Spiritual Sexual Shamanic Experience Involve?

This intensive is a well-designed and well-honed programme that unfolds within a powerful group process based on safety, trust, unconditional love, intimacy and acceptance of what is arising. It focuses on clearing the physical and emotional body of shame, guilt and fear related to sexuality and authenticity.

The deeper transformation comes from reconnecting to your personal power. In exploring sexuality, we create a fast path to encountering the challenges and gifts of fully owning our own power.

How will I feel afterwards?

By the end of the week, you will feel more in touch with your body, more aliveness and presence, more aware of your patterns,  and have skills to change them. You’ll have more awareness of your emotions and how to hold them more lightly and relaxed. You will be more in touch with the effortless flow of life, no matter what it looks like. 

Meeting myself in ways I could never logically have imagined. Daring to take that risk – one jump at a time. Revelations showing up. Prior expectations sometimes creating disappointment. An open heart and courageous spirit to piece through my pains and fears and powerful experiences creating profound shifts in me, my world view and acceptance of myself. Definitely the most useful gift right now in my core in loving with an open heart and willingness to recognise that everyone I meet is showing me a part of myself – and to accept, love, be compassionate with others – as not doing so would be denying my real fears, and longings for love and to share love with myself and around the world. Greg C

How does the Spiritual Sexual Shamanic Experience work?

The transformation is supported through multiple pathways using the best of the ancient temple arts including:

  • Tantra
  • Taoism
  • Kundalini energy
  • Shamanism
  • Modern day techniques NLP
  • Bioenergetics
  • Guided visualization
  • Emotional release tools
  • Conscious touch/ consent and boundary skills.

The inner masculine and inner feminine archetypes are explored. When they are fully integrated a door opens to a deeper knowing of the Self as whole and complete.

A note on Masculine & Feminine

Please don’t perceive that our use of the terms masculine and feminine is an indicator that ISTA operates from place of duality and gender separation. We do not, far from it, we realise that we are all masculine and feminine regardless of our physical form.

We use this terminology as it is an effective model for understanding the different energies or qualities that each if us is made of. They do not translate to men and women or male and female.

Who is facilitating this Spiritual Sexual Shamanic Experience?

Couples Session

divine-masculine-divine-feminine

Who are these couples session for?

Most couples face challenges in their relationship at some point. I’ve created these bespoke couples sessions for couples wanting to go deeper in their relating, to shift from blaming and shaming and to heal and transform their wounding. To shift from co-dependent patterns of relating and to ultimately create a relationship that is healthy and serves love where you are both independent and yet you choose to be together.

I work with couples of all genders.

How does a couples session work?

Usually you will both meet with me for the first session where we decide upon a course of action based upon my suggestions. After this I may work with you individually or together, depending upon your specific needs.

A couples session can include:

  • Tantric meditations and rituals
  • active listening instruction and support
  • attunement exercises to explore how each of you is feeling
  • counselling
  • body work
  • energy work
  • sex education

  • Identify the patterns which run you and how to change them
  • Dissolve all that gets in the way of your ecstatic self
  • Move out of co-dependency and into wholeness
  • Create more intimacy
  • Understand each other more as sexual beings and how to increase your pleasure

A relationship is like a bucket that you both hold. You each choose how much you can pour into it and whether you put holes in the bottom and let it all out. Taking care of the bucket requires time , care and attention.

Healing Trauma

healing trauma Catherine Hale

Who are these healing trauma sessions for?

Healing trauma is for anyone who has experienced an event in their life that was overwhelming at the time and hasn’t been able to integrate this experience. My focus is particularly around healing sexual trauma which can include:

  • rape
  • abuse
  • being exposed to sexuality at an inappropriate age
  • being shamed for your sexuality
  • abandonment
  • ridicule
  • harassment
  • any area where you felt sexual energy was present and you felt overwhelmed

Trauma is the most avoided, ignored, denied, misunderstood, and untreated cause of human suffering. It is the often debilitating symptoms that many people suffer from in the aftermath of perceived life-threatening or overwhelming experiences. –

Peter Levin (Trauma Expert)

How does a healing trauma session work?

The experience of trauma, whether its physical, emotional, or sexual abuse results in a loss of connection – to ourselves, to others, to the ground beneath us, to our bodies, our families and to the world around us.

As a consequence of trauma our choices become limited as we avoid certain feelings, people, situations and places. This constriction leads to a loss of vitality and costs us our freedom.

These healing trauma sessions start with where you are with no idea of forcing or pushing but instead using an approach that supports coming back into your body. Feeling and claiming your boundaries, and developing the capacity to feel everything including pleasure in a safe way. Allowing you to develop a deep intimacy with your self, infused with confidence and self-love.

Including:

  • body work
  • energy work
  • breath practices
  • embodiment practices
  • TRE (trauma release exercises)

What to expect after a healing trauma session

  • greater ability to regulate your emotional responses
  • feeling calmer and more centered
  • a sense of freedom from the restrictions from the past, which can feel like you are lighter
  • more pleasure in your life
  • a growing experience of self-love
  • being able to have the type of sexual experiences you want to have

Energetic Body Orgasm

energy orgasm

After my energetic body orgasm session, I felt very comfortable, and it really woke my body to feeling more sensual, relaxed and loving to myself and others! I also experienced an orgasm in my lower belly which was a wonderful feeling of pleasure and giggling. – Niall

Who are these energetic body orgasm sessions for?

For all genders to increase the body’s capacity to experience bliss through creating expanded orgasms in the body.

This concept of energetic body orgasm is beyond what current thinking believes orgasm to be. When being sexual often men believe that they can only have one orgasm; this is experienced in the genital area and is partnered with ejaculation. Some women are able to have multiple orgasms but again these are focused in the genital area.

Watch my Energetic Body Orgasm video

How does the energetic body orgasm session work?

  • I work with your energetic and physical body using touch to activate and circulate your sexual energy
  • I support you in clearing old old and stuck energies from your body
  • I support your energy to flow through your body
  • I create space for orgasm to arise.

Read my interview in Kindred Spirit’s magazine about energetic body orgasm.

Some of you may wonder how on earth this happens? Well our bodies are filled with energy and electric charges and quite simply without it we would not be alive. Our sexual energy is one of the most obvious and powerful energies in the body. We notice it when we are getting aroused or “turned on”. An energetic body orgasm session requires that we move our energy from our sex centre or genitals to other parts of our body, when we do this we can have highly pleasurable orgasmic experiences in any body part.

An energetic body orgasm session is the most intense experience I’ve ever had. My whole body started shaking, which was a little unnerving, but I relaxed into it and experienced waves of intense bliss and pleasure in the most obscure parts of my body! I never knew I could orgasm in my throat. 

Read my article in the Huffington Post: The Full Body Energetic Orgasm: Revolutionise Your Sex Life

What do I expect after an energetic body orgasm session?

  • More pleasure and bliss
  • Deeper, fuller orgasm
  • Release of old energies from the body (including trauma)
  • Deep healing of the body at a profound level

Scar Tissue Healing

scar tissue healing

Who are these scar tissue healing sessions for?

Some scars can remain active, meaning that collagenous deposits are left at the site of the scar. These deposits can travel along connective tissue in the body creating tightness, pulling, sharp pain, aching often a distance away from the scar site. Often there can be pain during and after sex with abdominal and pelvic scars.

I offer sessions for painful scars including:

  • c-section scars
  • inter-vaginal birth related scars
  • episiotomy scars
  • pelvic surgery including hernias, laparoscopic surgery and laparotomic surgery
  • breast scars from augmentation, reduction or other breast surgery

How does a scar tissue healing session work?

These sessions are often done in conjunction with other body work that you may have requested. Each scar is met through touch and you are encouraged to connect with the sensations and emotions that may be present there for you.

Scar tissue massage is performed using castor oil, a traditional healing oil, that significantly reduces inflammation and breaks down the collagenous tissue.

You may be advised to do a series of castor oil packs after the session, full guidance is given on this.

Scars need to be more than 6 weeks old.

What to expect after a scar tissue healing session

  • more softness on and around the scar
  • less of the symptoms you were presenting with
  • more pleasure
  • more connection to your body
  • greater sense of well-being

Price

  • 1.5 hours Devon £150 or London £200

Menstrual Empowerment

Menstrual empowerment is an unfamiliar concept for most women. Often they consider their menstruation or moon time as an inconvenience that gets in the way of their lives. In adopting this attitude they miss to pay attention to the needs and inherent wisdom of their bodies.

menstrual empowerment coaching Catherine Hale

What if you were told that your bleeding is a sacred time, a time of deep introspection, a time to shed your responsibilities, to retreat to a special place, the moon lodge or red tent, with other women where you could share your wisdom, journey and dream?

I was suffering from terrible PMS and  had no idea about planning my life around my menstrual cycle , I was just carrying on regardless. In our session I learned to chart my cycle, and discover what my needs are in each phase. Since my session I  follow my flow using an ap and plan my life accordingly. I feel so empowered, I can use my cycle to know when are the times to take on a new project,  to take time out, to be social, even when to go shopping!!! Life has radically changed!! – DM

Who are these menstrual empowerment sessions for?

  • women who experience a menstrual cycle
  • women who experience PMS, irregular, painful, or somehow challenging menstruation
  • women who want to discover the power of menstruation
  • women who want to learn about menstruation as a spiritual path
  • women who want to celebrate menstruation with other women
  • teenagers and pre-teenagers who want to learn about menstruation

The flow of blood can be thought of as the monthly ‘clean out’ of not only the body but the mind and spirit….a good time to spend at home – just relaxing and letting go and clearing out. – Dr Christiane Northrup

What if you had received the support you needed when you first started to bleed? How would it have been for you to have your first bleed celebrated and considered to be a rite of passage into your womanhood? How different would you feel about your body if you had been given positive messages of approval, love beauty and acceptance instead of hiding your bleeding in shame?

How does a menstrual empowerment session work?

  • Education around the seasons of menstruation
  • Guidance on knowing your flow and how to plan your life around your cycle

What do I expect from a menstrual empowerment session?

  • To know how to chart your cycle
  • To be able to identify patterns within your cycle and what you need to take care of yourself based on the characteristic qualities of each of the four monthly phases
  • To experience less pain during menstruation
  • To connect with the sacred power of your menstrual cycle
  • To feel more empowered

When we make a decision to connect with our menstrual cycle, life becomes an adventure where we open up new horizons for living a fulfilling and empowered life.
