Dating Tips is great way to explore beautifully and safely what dating means to you and what you might need in a partner......and to connect with others exploring the same. Great if you want to think more deeply about dating without actually going on a date. And it’s brilliant if you want to understand yourself and be more in control of your choices and needs, particularly if you’ve dating dreads or fears.
Opening up to a total stranger is never easy particularly when discussing intimate personal issues so finding a person with the right level of understanding, knowledge and discretion is difficult. I feel fortunate that not only does Alison possess all these in abundance but she has a warmth of personality that makes you want to explore your own psyche and understand more about what pleasure means for you. I couldn’t recommend her highly enough.
After emerging from a twenty year marriage that had featured no intimacy for around fifteen years I was in a bit of a pickle.I was confident and successful in my work life but my sex life had been reduced to beating a shameful one off in the toilet. That’s a pretty humiliating thing to admit. And I didn’t feel I was quite equipped with the knowledge necessary to start this next period of my life.Working with Ali has pretty much changed my whole concept of intimacy.I have learned to ask for what I want sexually, this slowly unlocked the process of me thinking more about what I might want in my life. I have learned to encourage my partner to ask for what she wants and thank her for feedback rather than feel affronted or say sorryI have learned to touch a woman sensually and in a way that makes us both feel safe rather than sets her on edge. And how this is essential before getting to anything sexual.I have learned that anything is OK if it’s open and discussed and both people want it. I’m no longer ashamed of my fantasies and realise how bringing them out into the open, without imposing them unconsciously on others is liberating me. This stuff changes everything and as Ali says “it’s strange that the most important things in life are also the ones we find hardest to talk about”.Thanks Ali, this is really important work.
I am a Tantric Practitioner, Bondassage® Practitioner and at the time of writing, a trainee Sexological Bodyworker. My journey to all of these practices has been immeasurably aided by Ali who has been my mentor and professional supervisor for over 18 months now. Ali taught me my first tantric massage; but more than that, she helped me to believe in myself, encouraged me to choose the future I wanted and has helped me plan and find my way here. I have never been happier in my life choices or career path and Ali has unwaveringly supported me to achieve this. Whether you are unsure of where you are and where you want to be or if you feel the need for one off or occasional support/advice, or if you are looking for longer term one to one, I highly recommend Ali as an excellent professional resource.
From meeting Ali running a Consensuality workshop, being a 1-1 client, and now as a mentor and booking agent, Ali has been supporting me on many levels to begin offering my work. Her insight, practical experience and clear honesty are guiding me to finding work to express my true purpose. Offering help with writing profiles, offering nurturing connections with other practitioners and finding clients, she is being a steady, loyal and supportive collaborator. Finding a place as a trusted Shiva and male practitioner in this field of conscious sexuality can be complex and Ali is helping me step into this with clarity and belief.
