Introduction to sexual grounding therapy
Sexual grounding therapy is a powerful form of self-development rooted in experiential body-psychotherapy. It was the work of Dutch developmental body psychotherapist Willem Poppeliers and represents an innovative approach to psychosexual issues. The work contains exercises and therapeutic structures which enable participants to feel seen as the sexual beings they are and which give them a new experience of their sexual innocence, with full support from parents (even if this wasn't possible in real life) for male and female identity. This could be seen as a process of sexual re-education; re-learning the facts of life.
What people are saying...
"Powerful and profound work. The space was held very skilfully by Geoff and Helena. I learnt a lot about male and female polarities and energies."
"I cannot imagine any other scenario in which I would feel as safe and held whilst also being profoundly challenged - and therefore enabled to go to such depths within myself. Helena and Geoff's sheer compassion, years of experience and breadth of skill were immediately evident. I would say this workshop is not for the faint hearted... I imagine the repercussions of this workshop will be many and far reaching in my life. I will be recommending it to friends and colleagues and look forward to more for myself when the opportunity arises."
"An incredible couple of days, beautifully led and supported by Helena and Geoff, allowing a safe space to dive into the unknown. I would highly recommend this to anyone wishing to become the best they can be!"
"For me, it started to close the split between my sexual side and the rest of me, words like embracing, owning, accepting, enjoying, being relaxed with, reclaiming... come to mind. Observing and recognising unmet needs before and during adolescence, feeling them and articulating them; connecting with and respecting the sexual part of me; these are phrases that begin to describe why I found it valuable. My body feels different - the pull I was conscious of, back to adolescent feelings and stresses, has diminished and the chance to develop a stronger heart-genital expression seems available."
