My gorgeous friend Stacey, from Mind Interiors, reached out to chat to me about one of the Chakras - in particular, the Sacral Chakra.
Despite the fact that I teach Tantra, I often don’t share on the Chakras, because I know they can seem esoteric - and I like to be really grounded in my approach. But one of the things I really love about Tantra is that it’s not only spiritual, but incredibly practical.
So although we’re talking about Chakras today, you’ll find our conversation practical, insightful and powerful.
Before we dive in, I want to share just a little on what Chakras are for those of you that might be unfamiliar with them.
Chakras in Eastern mythology and philosophy are spinning wheels of energy and light. We can’t see them or actually find them in the body.
There are 7 Chakras aligning with our physical body. Each Chakra has it’s own energy that corresponds to areas of our lives - and we work a lot with these in Tantra.
Stacey and I are talking about the Sacral Chakra, sexuality + creativity and explore:
I hope you enjoy this glimpse into Chakras, creativity and sexuality…
Today I’m sharing just how and where you can start when you haven’t been intimate in a really long time.
One of the most common reasons couples see me as a therapist is because they’re not having sex anymore - or at least not being intimate as often as they’d like.
Becoming intimate again can make such a huge difference to our relationship and overall happiness.
We tend to think everyone else has a great relationship and sex life. We can think that there’s something wrong with us because we’re the only ones not having sex – or arguing about it. But couples who are struggling in this area are not alone. It’s far more common than we might think.
What’s really important to know is it doesn’t mean there’s something wrong with you.
If it’s been a while since you were intimate you might be able to relate to this:
For this episode we’re going to talk specifically about how to take small, practical steps towards regaining intimacy when it’s been a long time, including:
Starting again when your sex life has been in decline isn’t easy, but it is possible.

Tantra is the incredible practice that really began my journey with sexuality, sensuality and intimacy - and still provides the foundation of so much of the work I do.
I hear all kinds of things when I tell people I practice and teach Tantra.
I’ve heard "Oh Tantra, that’s about group sex right?" or
"Oh, I know all about Tantra. Sting does Tantra and he can have sex for 9 hours."
In this episode, I’m:
If you feel disconnected from your partner OR struggle with recurring arguments. If you find yourself replaying the same patterns in relationships OR if you wish you could feel more confident with sex and your body … then this episode is for YOU.
Recently I was interviewed by Naturopath Jules Galloway as part of her podcast, Shiny Healthy You, in what has jokingly been labelled her Vag series! We stepped away from discussing lady bits to delve more into relationships.
Whether you’re single, or in a relationship, there will be plenty of “aha” moments!
We talk about what to do
“It’s actually really normal for there to be different desire levels for sex in a relationship.”
And if you’re single, find out tips for attracting a partner that will be the right person for us, and how to stop repeating old patterns when it comes to the lovers we’re drawn to.
“A partner’s desire for sex is actually a desire for connection and intimacy.”
We also chat about body image, and what it means to feel happy in your body (and sexy!) as you age and as your body changes.
“Once you’re naked, your partner’s just really grateful.”
Hahaha! Yes, it may really be that simple! Listen in to find out why.

How do you initiate sex?
Does it ‘just happen’? Do you make the first move? Do you usually leave it up to a partner?
This is a topic that comes up a lot with couples that I’m working with in therapy and the articles I share on this topic are always popular.
Initiating sex can be incredibly anxiety provoking. We’re all sensitive to feeling unloved.
If we make a move, and our partner doesn’t reciprocate, we can feel like they’re rejecting us - and no one wants to feel that way.
Many women I speak to, tell me that they psyche themselves up all day to make a move on their partner when they get home, but then, they feel too nervous and back out. Or they just feel like they don’t even know how to…
Or that they try - and their partner doesn’t seem to be interested.
In this episode I share some of the common challenges of initiating sex and then ways you can initiate that are intimate, fun and sexy.
I hope you enjoy!
