Vanessa K Vance
I am a counsellor, coach, sex educator and facilitator based in Perth, Western Australia but also bring my work to other parts of Australia and the world. I work with individuals and groups and am deeply motivated and passionate about furthering the culture of consent, embodiment, and sexual freedom. In the realm of the creative arts I consider myself firstly a musician, then a thespian, a writer, and a creative visual artist. I have over my life and to this day continued to express myself and create through those mediums in private and public ways. I have also explored a variety of other expressive therapeutic-like modalities that have given me other avenues for expression in my body, mind and emotions. Some of those include ecstatic dance, meditation, breathwork, psychodrama, tantra, shamanic and somatic sexological practices. Through that growth journey, I have increased my awareness of myself and my body, and my relationship to others and the world, particularly in the areas of sexuality and its socio-cultural constructs. All of which has allowed to hold a position of deep love and service for this work. As a performer and facilitator, I appreciate the sacredness and privilege of holding the space and capturing the attention of the group that I am guiding; for the purpose of the event and the unique journey of each person and the greater collective.
