What is Sexological Bodywork?
Sexological bodywork is a client led, somatic education based modality for people who would like to access more pleasure in their lives. This means there is an enormous, possibly infinite scope of practice in what a session could look like. The primary tools that we bring to a session as somatic sex educators are breath, movement, sound, touch and placement of awareness.
Each session begins with a conversation and a co-creation of an educational contract about what practices and forms of touch (if any) are going to happen during a session. This gives both client and practitioner time to attune their nervous systems and work at a pace that allows for integration of learning.
Our work together might include embodiment exercises such as breathwork, movement, sounding, and touch. Throughout, we will reflect and adjust to ensure our work together is serving your intentions. You will also be supported to continue the practices in your own time at home.
What is Scar Remediation?
STREAM stands for Scar Tissue Remediation, Education and Management. This multi-disciplinary approach benefits those with both emotional and physical scar tissue. Stream benefits people with birth related, trauma related, or surgery pain in their bodies, especially the pelvis and pelvic diaphragm.
STREAM is the brainchild of the legendary Ellen Heed PhD, who was my anatomy and physiology educator during my Sexological Bodywork Training. She has developed a two year program from her expertise in several different modalities and has been offering in-depth training for people who are passionate about pelvic wellness and health. Practitioners come from a range of professional backgrounds - we may be sexological bodyworkers, birth workers or pelvic floor physios. our commonality is that we are passionate about making a difference in pelvic health.

I completed my training with Ellen in 2023, travelled to the States both in 2022 and 2023 to learn from her in person and she continues to mentor my work.
“STREAM practitioners meet you where you are - they tune in to your story and your state, holding space to discover, assess, and connect the dots in professional relationship. Through meaningful education, facilitated self-discovery and mapping strategies STREAM works to resolve pain and blockage from scars-both physical and unseen”.
- Ellen Heed PhD
In Person Sessions
All in person sessions happen at my home, on Wurundjeri-Woiworrong Country in a lovingly designed room I have built in the Macedon Ranges just outside of Melbourne.
For a first session I like to allow 2 hours, so we can take a bit longer to get to know each other and discuss why it is you are here and are choosing to work with me. Subsequent sessions are 90 mins.
Whilst I do offer single sessions, somatic learning is an ongoing process and it is beneficial to have a series to really reap the benefits of work. The work is priced accordingly. A single session is $300. A series of 3 are $250 per session and a series of 5 are $220 per session if paid up front and can be done over a series of weeks or months, to suit your needs.
Accessibility is important to me, as is this work, if you are experiencing financial hardship but feel you would greatly benefit from the work, please contact me directly to discuss.
If you are an Indigenous Australian, please also contact me if you would like to hear more about my Pay the Rent pricing options.
I also offer online sessions for those who are more interested in coaching and education than bodywork and scar remediation. Many embodied practices can be explored together online and it can be very useful to learn more about your own genitals through guided self mapping sessions if you are unable to come and see me in person.
Online sessions are $175 for 75 mins.
