About Me and How I Work
Sophia is an experienced sex-positive, gender-affirming, LGBTQ educator turned coach and therapist. She has been running workshops on consent, sexual empowerment and kink in the UK and Ireland since 2009. She has also facilitated support groups for women coming out as lesbian and bisexual. She is passionate about communication, negotiation and creating win-win situations.
Sophia comes from a humanistic background, but also uses tools and teaches skills from Dialectic Behaviour Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy and Emotional Efficacy Therapy where these might be useful to a client.
She likes to think of her work as straight friendly, since it focuses on building connection and trusting, sustainable partnerships rather than the gender or sexuality of the individuals involved. While most clients are non-monogamous, kinky or queer; more traditional couples and individuals also appreciate her open-minded approach.
