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 an eight-week embodiment journey and mentorship programme for people interested in exploring Ethical Dominance.
Some people are drawn to this training because they want to engage in Dominant/submissive play in safe(r) ways. Others come to build a healthier relationship with power in their lives more broadly.
The way I see it is that kink is a tool through which we can delve into our relationship with power. When we do this kind of self-exploration it has the potential to impact many different aspects of our lives, sometimes in ways we don't expect!
THIS IS REALLY ABOUT EMPOWERING YOU SO THAT YOU IN TURN CAN EMPOWER OTHERS ✨
What I share in this programme is the outcome of two decades on my own personal journey from people pleaser to Professional Dominant.
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.
I share openly about my own personal (good, bad, and ugly) experiences with power, 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.
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.
At the heart of this programme is the COMMUNITY - it's about learning and practicing together, and sharing our own experiences so that we can see we are not alone in the challenges we might have around power. I had the most beautiful time with the last group and can't wait to embark on this new journey 💜
Mentees will have access to the programme for 8 weeks, during which you will be invited to participate in:
THREE in-person classes to connect with your peers and practice face-to-face. Each class will be approximately 2.5 hours long.
THREE online group sessions via Zoom. These are usually 2 hours long and each focuses on a different topic, with space to ask questions and share experiences
Weekly home practices - you will receive weekly prompts for research, self-reflection, or practical exercises, which will deeply enrich your learning.
Our POWER & PRESENCE 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 one last time to bring all of the pieces together, deepen the embodiment aspects, and celebrate our progress! This will be a day-long workshop.
There will also be an option to add on extra 1-to-1 sessions with me online or in-person at a discounted rate while the programme is running, as past mentees have found this really helpful.
The next programme will begin on Tuesday 27th June 2023.
Group sessions will take place on Tuesday evenings, alternating between in-person and online.
Week 1: Tuesday 27th June
Week 2: Tuesday 4th July

Weekly home practices will be sent out via the group forum every Wednesday.
The cost for the 8-week course is £390.

Please note: all participants will be asked to complete a pre-programme survey beforehand and I will arrange an introductory call with you if we've not worked together before. This is to make sure that the programme is a good fit for you before we get started. Should we decide that it's not, your ticket will be refunded in full.
You can also contact me directly if you'd like to chat about the programme in more detail.
The programme was of great benefit to me in raising my awareness and confidence with how to approach and embody dominance in an authentic, mindful way... [it] supported me in overcoming inner obstacles to utilising my power, and gave me tools to pursue experiences in a balanced and ethical manner that centres the sub's well being, without compromising the authority and excitement of stepping into the dominant role. I would highly recommend the programme to anybody interested in developing their dominant side although I feel that anybody, including submissives, could benefit from the content.
