Do you want to feel more comfortable in your power, more confident being in charge, and better able to set clear boundaries?
POWER & PRESENCE is a three month embodiment journey and mentorship programme for people who are interested in exploring Ethical Dominance, whether that's for the purpose of engaging in D/s play or more broadly building a healthier relationship with power in their lives.
I believe we ALL have the capability to step into Dominance in a way that is authentic. If you don't feel that you fit into the box of a stereotypical Dom or Dominatrix, don't let that hold you back! The world needs more people who can wield power responsibly in their own unique way.
My style of Dominance draws upon what’s already within me - you might like to think of these as traits, desires, archetypes, or energies.
In order to tap into this ability, it is essential to do our own inner work first before we try to influence others. That includes, amongst other things, looking at where you have blocks, shame, resistance, unmet desires, and the strategies you use to get what you want.
What I share in this programme is the outcome of two decades on my own personal journey from people pleaser to Professional Dominant.
I share openly about my own personal (good, bad, and ugly) experiences with kink, how my non-kinky parts of life have influenced me greatly, and the challenges of this work that nobody told me about.
The focus of my teaching is on creating a space for us to experiment and have embodied experiences of power.
Learning happens through a combination of theory, embodied enquiries, core skills practice, demonstrations, and group sharing. Included in the programme are two bonus classes with guest facilitators who will bring in some additional, special expertise!
This is a programme that supports us in becoming a whole, integrated human rather than simply teaching the “technical skills” of kink. It's less about the activities we do and more about having the ability to change our own state and invite others to do the same through our presence, embodiment, and language.
The structure is designed to provide you with ongoing support as you learn to embrace and integrate the different parts of yourself that might be called upon to empower you.
My work is influenced by the Wheel of Consent, conscious kink, archetypes, the psychology of dominance and submission, some aspects of Sexological Bodywork, unpicking implicit and conditioned power dynamics, and skills that I've been taught and have gone on to develop such as verbal domination.
Mentees will have access to the programme for 3 months, which includes:
TWELVE online group sessions via Zoom. These are usually between 90 and 120 minutes long and each focuses on a different topic, with space to ask questions and share experiences
Weekly home practice - you will receive weekly prompts for research, self-reflection, or practical exercises, which will deeply enrich your learni
Community - you will have the option to join a private group chat with other mentees where you can share the outcomes of your weekly home practice, receive input from me and your other peers, build connections with others, and find people to practice with!
One in-person gathering - at the end of the programme, we will come together to put our learning into practice, deepen the embodiment aspects, and celebrate our progress! This will be a day-long workshop and will take place in the North West of England.
The next programme will begin on Tuesday 18th April 2023.
Weekly home practices will be sent out via the group forum every Wednesday.
Group coaching calls will take place weekly on Tuesday evenings between 7 and 9 pm via Zoom. Please ensure you can attend as many of these live as possible. Recordings will be available for two weeks after the call if for some reason you are unable to make it. The dates for our calls will be as follows:
Tuesday 18th April

The in-person gathering will take place on the weekend of 1st/2nd July 2023. The exact date and location will be confirmed at the beginning of the programme.
There will also be an option to add extra 1-to-1 sessions with me online or in-person at a discounted rate while the programme runs, as some current mentees have found this really helpful.
The cost for the 3-month course is £299/month.
This includes weekly group coaching calls and the two guest facilitators' classes (approx. 6 hours of coaching per month on average), ongoing home practices and support, and attendance of the in-person full-day workshop. Please allow extra in your budget for travel and accommodation costs for attending the workshop.
** If you are keen to join but feel that the price is the only limiting factor to attending, please get in touch and we will see what we can do to make this more accessible! **
Lex's knowledge and understanding of the topic was very clear from how they delivered the content and the ease in which they were able to guide discussion. The exercises we did with Lex were a great introduction to exploring our relationship to power, power dynamics, consent and the embodiment of our Inner-Dominatrix. The space was invitational and Lex's ability to hold space ensured that everyone felt comfortable to participate in discussion as and when they wanted. Thank you Lex! I look forward to attending more workshops!
