Hi, I'm Bonnie...

When I went to the ‘career advisor’ at school, I can’t say I had any idea that I’d build a career supporting women to feel at home in their bodies, overcome libido challenges, have more fulfilling intimacy and find a path forward after experiencing sexual trauma.

For many years, I felt numb and disconnected from my body. I thought I was broken. 

Fumbling my way through the first 6 years of my sexually active life, it seemed like my body existed to please others. I was stuck in performative patterns, believing that sex was something I owed a partner. I felt very little pleasure and just assumed that my pleasure wasn’t important and I’d never be able to enjoy intimacy.

These days, I feel a deep sense of care and love for my body and I feel empowered to communicate if something doesn’t feel right to me. Shame doesn’t get me like it used to, and I know how to use embodiment practices to support self enquiry, access pleasure, build sensitivity and move through challenging emotions that arise in the bedroom.

On a daily basis, I get to support thousands of women to enjoy being in their bodies, expand their pleasure potential and experience deeeper intimacy. It’s such an honour to share this work in the world.

I'm a Somatic Sexologist,

women’s pelvic specialist & embodiment teacher. I’ve basically spent the last decade of my life in the world of the female pelvis. Nothing brings me more joy than supporting women to release shame & numbness, connect with their pleasure (especially after challenging experiences!), overcome libido issues and feel more at home in their bodies.

I've done a boatload of training...

which is all listed below. I believe in being transparent about exactly what I’m trained in, and I want to respect my incredible teachers and what I’ve received from them. My biggest learning however, has come from the 10,000+ hours I’ve spent in 1:1 private client work and facilitating workshops & retreats in person.

These days, my work is all online.

I’ve shared my various paid programs and trainings with over 5000 students so far. Currently I offer a range of lower cost programs in topics like partnered intimacy, yoni massage, body confidence and pelvic embodiment, but my main offering is my 3 month program for women  – The School of Embodied Pleasure.

I sometimes take too much on.

Usually working on a handful of projects, I’m also learning to (gently) wrangle my relentless creative inspiration into specific plans. I’ve been through burn out  before so I try to listen to my body and not hustle or push too hard.

I'm a country girl at heart.

I grew up on a farm on Yuin country on the south coast of NSW, Australia, without electricity or television. I definitely miss the country lifestyle, but I’m loving living in Melbourne now. I recently rescued a 6 year old husky named Akira and we go for lots of walks on the creek!

I love moving my body,

being in water, and connecting with people I love. I’m happiest when I’m by a fire or wandering through the bush. I’m an extroverted introvert. I’m an Aries and I’m wildly impatient. I laugh a lot. I’m better with 1:1 time with people rather than groups. I have a weird neurological condition called prosopagnosia, which means I often don’t recognise people’s faces. (Yes, it’s as awkward as it sounds!)
