WHY INTIMACY JAM
Are you touch hungry?
Our culture provides for meeting all other needs, especially the need for autonomy, but not for intimacy. It still stigmatises sexuality and the majority of us has difficulties talking about it in detail. What some psychologists term "skin hunger" (also known as touch hunger) is a need for physical human contact. Although many people sate their skin hunger through sex, skin hunger isn't exactly a sexual need. Satisfying your skin hunger requires you to have meaningful physical contact with another person, and failing to observe your need for human touch can have profound emotional, even physical, consequences.

I’m a facilitator of transformational spaces, community activist and artist. Sexual liberation is at the heart of individual transformation, without which there can be no meaningful societal progress. To this end, I have started hosting Sex Club, a conversational and experiential group space to normalise talking about sex and its nuances, to share knowledge and experiences, and to redefine sexuality as a spectrum. I am an experienced space holder, having co-founded an intentional community in London and having received training in non-violent communication, co-counselling and mindfulness-based resilience. I am also a co-founder of playground, an online education source and engagement platform for sexuality and intimacy due to launch this summer.
My artistic and personal enquiry is the authentic expression of self through creativity, intellect, emotion and sexuality. I consult on collective experience design at festivals, transformational co-created events and artist residencies. I spent 10 years in the corporate tech industry before my calling into the nonprofit sector and I remembered that I'm an artist, as we all are.
I’m a somatic sex therapist, facilitator, and events consultant. As a therapist, my intention is to enable people to explore the special connection between their sexuality, creativity and well-being, often in and through relationships, and always using the body as a tool for transformation.
I use a combination of somatic and creative approaches including Movement Psychotherapy, Shadow Work and Conscious Kink, Tantra, Creative Arts, Mindfulness and Play Therapy. In my events and consultancy work I combine my therapeutic skills and knowledge with traditional events management and production, and my ability as a facilitator and space holder, to create powerful transformational experiences for groups at workshops and parties.
