Sessions

I offer private shibari sessions for people who would like to be tied by me.

I offer these sessions for:

  • People who are new to shibari and want to experience their first ties in a safe(r) environment, with an experienced facilitator who can guide/support them through the session, answer any questions, and adapt to their needs. 
  • People who are interested in the experience of being tied for play, exploration, or finding new ways to connect with their bodies, emotions, and other people. 

Many people are also interested in the potential of shibari for helping to calm them, reduce anxiety, release stress, set boundaries, or work through other issues etc. I am very happy to help facilitate this but I am NOT a therapist (and would personally be suspicious of anyone who claims to offer shibari sessions as a ‘healing’ or ‘therapeutic’ tool). I am always happy to hold space for ‘aftercare’ in the form of tea and conversation, but I am totally unqualified to go beyond this.

A little more about my rope:
I have 15 years of experience from both sides of the rope (being tied/tying) which I feel gives me an ability to empathise with the experience of the person I am tying. I also have good physical awareness, and always try to make my rope adaptable to different bodies. My main interest right now is in a combination of ‘one rope’ movement play, and creating slow, simple flows for moving between suspension and partial suspension, but I’m very open to other things (e.g. dynamic suspension, or more static, restrictive ties).

Please contact me to discuss, including a bit of information about yourself and your interest in doing a session like this. I will usually ask questions in advance via email to establish your wishes/needs, and to check that we’re a good fit. We will also need to arrange a short video call before finalising the session.

Prices for these sessions are based on your individual requirements, and I also offer sliding scale pricing for those on a lower income.
