Coaching

Are you looking for a way to move beyond fear and shame around your sexuality, and find self-acceptance and erotic empowerment?

Are you searching for creative and consensual ways to give voice to your sexual desires?

Are you wondering how to chart a course beyond “the norm” in terms of gender, sexuality, or relationship style?

Are you longing to enter into radical relationship and creative intimacy with yourself and/or your partner(s)?

Are you ready to discover, embrace, and celebrate your erotic self?

If any of the above ring true for you, and you are looking for a safer and welcoming space from which to address the difficult questions about love, sex, intimacy, and/or gender, psychosexual coaching may be for you.

I’m Rowan, the founder of Making Love with God, and in my capacity as a psychosexual coach, I take pleasure in empowering my clients to:

  • Clarify and communicate their boundaries, their needs, and their desires
  • Develop strategies for radical self-acceptance and ethical self-care
  • Discover new possibilities for intimacy and sex, and navigate different stages of love and life in creative and pleasure-giving ways
  • Address questions around identity, and find safe and fulfilling ways to embody and express themselves
  • And to reconnect – to their own sexual and creative energy, to partners and loved ones, and, if they so wish, to an experience of unconditional (and sex-positive!) divine love

My work takes the form of talk therapy, and uses breath, visualisation, and embodiment techniques to promote integration, pleasure expansion, and peace. I bring warmth, humour, and presence to my sessions, and my unique coaching style is influenced by a decade of experience in conscious sexuality, spiritual counselling, and the gifts of the breath.

My practice is LGBTQ+ affirming, non-monogamy and kink-friendly, and grounded in an awareness of intersectional oppression, and of the struggles inherent in living in a capitalist society.

Previous Clients Say…

What I appreciate about Rowan is that I really feel centred in the space. It's like having a very kind, loving, and deep mirror held up to me that lets me see new aspects of myself. Everything they ask, every journey they help me to take, is led by what's already present in me. It's never about a pre-existing format or about their curiosity about the ways that I might be different to them or to other people. So I feel honoured in everything that I am. Rowan understands that helping me thrive is not just about looking at dark things and difficult emotions. It's also about exploring my joy and my pleasure. That brings a playfulness to the sessions that balances out the more challenging work, and helps me to feel like a full human with a full range of emotions. I appreciate their expansive understanding of sex and sexuality and of gender and their devotion to helping me understand what helps me build safety. I can speak freely about all aspects of who I am: my non-monogamy, my queerness, my kinks, my sexual fears and shame, my gender. I'm never having to explain myself to them for their benefit. Instead I am truly centred in the space. - S, Coaching Client

Each session starts with breathing together, which I experience as an excellent way to get in touch with my feelings and really be there during the session. Rowan first helped me through the process of grieving the end of a relationship. I found their advice on rituals, and on how to integrate rituals in my life, very applicable. Starting in parallel, and continuing after I was done grieving, they helped me explore what my own contributions to the chaos and unhappiness had been and in what ways it was linked to experiences I had had as a child and teenager. During the whole process, I felt deeply and profoundly welcome. Rowan invited me to look at parts of myself that other parts of me felt ashamed of, and did not wish to exist, and treat those parts with kindness and understanding, and listen to them. I feel that throughout the coaching, I became better able to connect to my grief, and my anger, and my shame, because Rowan held the space between us and I felt that it was okay to have these feelings. Learning to acknowledge those feelings, and trying to give them room when needed, has also deepened my connection to the rest of my feelings - my joy, my curiosity, my inner child. I am very, very happy to have achieved that, with Rowan's help. And while all that has been hard work, it was very rewarding and even, from time to time, fun! - B, Coaching Client

Over a series of sessions Rowan enabled me to explore sexual orientation and identity along with it's spiritual and psychic aspects. Rowan brings radical acceptance and kindness to their work, coupled with deep insight and an intuitive grasp of where you are coming from. I was really impressed by the open, deeply informed approach and the inclusion of the effects of structural oppression in exploring blocks and fears associated with non-normative sexual orientation. The work we did together enabled me to move into a new level of acceptance of myself and improved integration. I would highly recommended them as a skilled counsellor in what can be quite a difficult domain. - M, Coaching Client

Rowan – Words are not going to be enough to express the gratitude I feel for the help you have given me during my counseling sessions with you.

Your therapeutic approach has been the first facilitation I have experienced that has helped me implement concrete external improvements in my life – as well as what is the normally expected internal psychological development. Your insightful witnessing and holistic technique has been like a breath of fresh air – literally – that has allowed me to straighten the knotted tangles of thoughts that have held me back. The way you have helped me work with a heightened body consciousness has been amazing and allowed me to clear out old locked-in, and disruptive, thought patterns. I would recommend your therapeutic work to anyone. - C, Coaching Client

Dear Rowan - Thank you so much for your incredible focus, presence, love, support and listening over the last couple of months.

I have thoroughly enjoyed our sessions. It seems a little weird to say “enjoyed” through the sobbing, processing, expressing and deep heartfelt moving through some very painful stuff. Yet, that is the word I would use to describe this wonderfully gentle yet powerful holding of the session that you so seamlessly offer. You have the ability to marry deep wisdom and intuition with practical grounding help and inspirations to help me move through and challenge myself in my life, as I ease into a more flowing way of experiencing, expressing and relating. I feel like I have been hugged with love into myself. - E, Coaching Client

Dear Rowan - You have already helped me in ways I could never have imagined.

I’ve experienced different therapies in the past and they have always focused on fixing me, rather than allowing me to listen to myself and begin to see who I truly am. You aren’t just with me during our sessions, but send me away with something to work on – whether that’s reading a book, making art, going on a journey, or performing a ritual. I haven’t been given the space to create since I was a child. Sometimes our sessions challenge me, because of the rawness that comes with discovering your Self, but I am already witnessing the shift in my perception of the world. Or perhaps, simply remembering a world I’ve experienced before.

Thank you. I am so looking forward to delving deeper within whilst learning to make more connections, more authentic connections, with others, with The Other. - O, Coaching Client
