What is Somatic Sexology?
Somatic sexology is the meeting of somatics (focussing awareness through the body), with sexology (the scientific study of human sexuality).
It is the merging of practices from time-tested traditions such as yoga, meditation and tantra, with cutting edge research in neuroscience, psychology and somatic learning theory.
Somatic sexology develops ‘embodiment’, which is a deeper presence, awareness, and understanding of what is going in your body and in sex. Embodiment releases body-mind restrictions that inhibit pleasure, and allows space for greater growth, choice, and play.

What is Embodied Therapy?
Embodied Therapy develops your potential to live fully, and empowers you to direct your own growth and learning. It teaches you awareness around what makes you feel safe, what your boundaries are and it teaches you about your consent.
Breakthroughs in science and technologies this century are showing us that every aspect of our lives, including our bodies, thoughts, emotions, relationships, eroticism, and spirituality, are aspects of an interconnected system that develop, learn and grow together.
In learning to live more in the moment and experience life more fully through your body, you develop greater choice in your life experience, the freedom to direct our own growth and development, and more ease with the process of living.
“To be fully embodied means to be at one with who we are, in every respect, including our physical being, our emotions, and the totality of our situation”.Reginald A Ray
What is Sexological Bodywork?
Sexological Bodyworkers are Somatic Sex Educators, supporting individuals, couples and groups to learn to direct their own personal and sexual growth. We also facilitate learning about the body, sex and sexuality, as well as working through sexual issues or concerns.
Sexological Bodyworkers offer education and coaching to support people to deepen their experience of embodiment.
Sexological Bodyworkers believe that sexual health and erotic education are basic human rights.
We use a variety of instructive modalities that bring awareness to limiting patterns and habits and offer body-based experiential learning opportunities.
Recurring patterns can arise in relationships that limit people’s capacity for intimacy. Working with a Sexological Bodyworker can provide a safe, supportive environment outside these relationships, to openly work through and resolve issues at a relaxed pace.
Sexological Bodywork is not clinical; it is individualised holistic education.
“Cyd holds all of these strings to her bow, but it’s the learning and wisdom which come from her life experience that really enables her to lift her Sexology and Embodiment practice to the next level.”Joscelyne

Why would I visit Cyd?
The sessions have a powerful way of finding the clients real want and/or desire beyond the head chatter, working with the clients body/mind can create a whole new narrative.
Clients can come with a sexual issue or concern, (sometimes it takes a problem in our sex lives to make us take the action towards healing or help), OR they want to work on embodiment, diving deeper into the body, unraveling and finding more choice and accessing body intelligence.
There are as many reasons to book a session as there are people on the planet and sometimes you might not know exactly why you feel to book but with attunement and awareness your real desire or want or need will emerge. Thats what I am good at. “All of you is Welcome”
