Reconnect with your body.
I empower people to find their erotic expression.
I believe that any true personal change comes from within. I guide people to access and use their body wisdom and show them how to be more present in their bodies and minds.
I educate people of all sexual orientations and gender identities, to be more empowered and to see all their exciting choices when it comes to intimacy and pleasure. Instead of suggesting answers, I ask good questions.
I have a unique mix of presence and skill. I teach through consensual, conscious and safe touch. In addition to private consulting, I have worked as a bodyworker in various spa centers.
I live and work in Berlin, Cologne and Prague and travel regularly to other cities in Europe and overseas. I also welcome clients to online coaching sessions via skype or zoom. I am fluent in English, German and Czech and have a good command of Russian.
I hold professional certificates in Somatic Sex Education (CSSE), Sexological Bodywork (CSB) and a Master’s degree in Sociology, Philosophy, English and American Literature.
Adventures & Influences
Besides a passion for teaching sexual wellness and wisdom, I enjoy travelling and learning about foreign cultures.
My adventures have taken me all around the world including places like the Yukon, Canadian Arctic, Iceland and Mongolia.
I bicycle to remote places and skipper sailing trips on the Adriatic, Ligurian and Tyrrhenian Sea.
The following personalities and their perspectives and teachings have been significantly influential in my professional and private life:
- Dan Millman (Peaceful Warrior’s Way),
- Nonviolent Communication (Marshall B. Rosenberg)
- Brad Blanton (Radical Honesty),
- Betty Martin (Wheel of Consent) and
- Rüdiger Nehberg (Target).
It’s me riding a pedelec after a dry suit scuba dive between the European and American continental plates at Silfra in Þingvellir National Park (Thingvellir), Iceland. More: iceland-challenge.de
