Embodied Intimacy Coaching, Wheel Of Consent





Forres, Online (also Edinburgh and London)



Do you want better relationships, stronger boundaries, clearer communication skills?

If you want to improve your connection with touch, intimacy, pleasure or relationships I can help you build skills and practices to:

  • Notice what your body feels
  • Trust what your body wants
  • Communicate what your body enjoys

My sessions create safe, gentle, and engaging environments for you to learn about intimacy, have more fun with your body, and (re)discover how to feel.

Using body-based principles I work collaboratively with you, giving you tools to help you (re)connect with yourself, and others.

I offer a space in which you can be held as safely as possible, and fully seen and heard, without judgement.

Choice and the needs of the individual are at the centre of each experience I facilitate, whether in a group, a partnership, or with an individual. All my work is guided by the principles of the Wheel Of Consent

I work mainly with anyone who defines as male, but I absolutely welcome enquiries from anyone who feels drawn to work with me. Please do get in touch with me, if you feel I would be the right person for you to work with – no matter how you define yourself.

Developed through several decades of practical application, the Wheel Of Consent is a simple, powerful, navigational tool, which brings choice and clarity to your interactions with others.

Sexological Bodywork is a rapidly growing, professionally recognised field. It is almost unique in therapeutic terms as it allows for very intimate touch, but communicates with, and flows directly from, the needs of each individual body rather than imposing pre-defined criteria. The work is regulated and kept emotionally and physically safe by very strict working protocols.



As required by appointment. See website for more details.



Bodywork £60 p/h.

Online £40 p/h.

I also offer a number of coaching packages – see my websites for details.

Finding Michael to work with has been a wonderful experience. He provided a safe, gentle and non judgemental place for me to explore my wants and needs. This allowed me to work at my own pace. Perhaps the best part was his willingness to listen to me and respond to my wants as we crafted our zoom sessions together. An unmissable experience. (J, Australia)

This was an extraordinary and transformative experience. We can’t imagine having made a better choice with our weekend. Your coaching allowed impressive learning and growth in such a short time. (M & M, USA)

Michael is a gifted communicator and facilitator of the Wheel of Consent tool. I felt his presence, encouragement and enthusiasm in the 6 individual sessions allowed me to gain a deeper, clearer, cleaner yes and no and a clearer understanding of the energetics of human interactions. This is a tool for life and I am so grateful. (K, Scotland)
