Elaine Young BSc MSc CSB ~ London
Somatic Sex Coach & Certified Sexological Bodyworker
What attracted Elaine to this work?
“The exploration of this work as part of my own healing journey following a life altering grief event, revealed to me how working with Somatic Sexuality, Tantra, Shamanism and Breathwork could be a portal to personal transformation, healing, power and freedom. I now love to share these gifts with others. I was medical diagnostic scientist in direct patient care for 20 years. I brought my scientific skills (including a healthy dose of cynicism and skepticism) alongside my experience of the physical manifestations of dis-ease to my current transformational healing & wellness practices.” Elaine

Somatic Sex Coaching & Sexological Bodywork
Somatic Sex Coaching & Sexological Bodywork provides a structure for you to begin to understand your sexuality better, improve your sex life and to heal your sexual wounds. It will teach you skills that will enable you to transform/change the things you are unhappy with or that prevent you from enjoying your sexuality to its fullest potential. It may be that you are struggling with a specific issue or that you just feel disconnected from or not in fully charge of your sexual energy, expression and interactions.
Sexological Bodywork will also offer you the opportunity to receive skilled body work to allow you to release of old tensions/pain/holding patterns from your body and to rewire your connection to your whole body, genitals and sexual pleasure.
Sexological Bodywork supports you to in terms of how you feel about your sexuality and how you experience sex alone or with others. It will open up what your inherited beliefs are about sex, how your culture, your family and your past interactions may have shaped or shut down your sexuality.

‘I found Elaine to be one of the most empathetic and focused healers I’ve ever worked with. I had some quite out of the ordinary childhood experiences to grow through and Elaine was like a Warrior-Mama, she went right there with me and held the space beautifully, all the time working and weaving with a number of modalities she has mastered. Ten out of ten, no reservations.’
‘As we went deeper, I was struck by how much knowledge Elaine has about the workings of the body. She balances a solid understanding of human biology with a highly-attuned intuition and an ability to read the body at many levels. Occasionally the process felt almost mystical and quite wondrous – but somehow this was always grounded in skill, knowledge and a playful sense of humour. This combination of elements is extremely rare in a practitioner and meant that Elaine could hold whatever came up in our work together.
By the last couple of sessions Elaine had gained the complete trust of my body and my energy system and we were able to release years (maybe centuries) of tension in my pelvic region and my anus. This is an outcome beyond what I was hoping for and I’m overjoyed about it.
I wholeheartedly recommend Elaine to anyone who wants to expand their sexual potential and transform negative habits and patterns in their body. She’s an outstanding practitioner and a fine teacher of this work. – London Faerie’
