Professional Ethics

Ethical Practice In Somatic Sex Education

 

As a professional sexuality educator, I strive to practice with honesty and integrity, within appropriate boundaries and clearly-defined roles. 

 

My primary commitment is to the health, well-being, and safety of my clients.

 

Before working with me, I encourage prospective clients to consider their ability to work successfully with a somatic sex educator by consulting this checklist offered by the SSEA.

 

I offer prospective clients a free, no-obligation Discovery Call so they may ask questions and learn more about what I do before deciding if they would like to work with me.

I believe ongoing professional development and peer mentorship are vital to the ethical practice of Somatic Sex Education. I meet regularly with a group of colleagues for supervision where we discuss issues we are encountering in practice, share ideas and resources, and get oversight on ethical issues before they become problems. I attend seminars, webinars and Community of Practice calls weekly, and read extensively to keep up with the latest neuroscience, sexuality education and somatic coaching theory.

The Somatic Sex Educators Association has created a checklist to help you help you decide if you are ready to explore somatic sex education, and to help you find a practitioner that is right for you.
