    Creating a culture of care in sexuality workshops with Catherine Hale

    Creating a culture of care in sexuality workshops with Catherine Hale

    Catherine Hale is a pioneer in creating workshop and event spaces with care and safety at the core. She calls this ‘a culture of care’.   
    The sexuality workshop scene is evolving with ongoing revelations of unethical, unprofessional and often dangerous practice. Shining a light on bad practice is essential, and so is defining and promoting best practice.
    We had this conversation to explore how the sexuality workshop scene has changed over the years, the risks of intense, cathartic processes, why safety in the nervous system allows you to go deeper, the importance of integration and how to choose the right facilitator for you and much more. 
    Catherine shares:
    How the sexuality workshop scene has changedThe difference between the gentle and the intense, cathartic approaches to sexual healing in sexuality workshops The importance of safety within sexuality workshopsHow workshop spaces can re traumatise people The difference between hyper and hypo sexuality and how this plays out in workshop settings Why the most sparkly shiny looking workshops may not offer the deepest healing and transformation How high intensity workshops match our societal conditioning around sexualityWhat a culture of care is and what that looks like in a workshop setting The importance of integrationHow creating safety in the nervous system creates a base for deeper erotic exploration and lasting transformationHow to establish if a facilitator or a training is right for youHow a regulated nervous system supports you to be with uncertainty 
    Catherine is a qualified trauma coach, sexological bodyworker, and postmenopausal woman who understands what it takes to heal and grow from the inside out. Her trauma-informed perspective focuses on reducing the harm of internalised capitalism in our bodies and businesses, recognising the need for radical rest in business, and unlocking the power of post-traumatic growth.

    I am super excited to share this interview with Diana Richardson who is considered one of today’s leading authorities on human sexuality.  Diana is known as the pioneer of Slow Sex and has been running ‘making love’ retreats for couples since 1993.  She has also written 8 books on how in practical ways a person can experience a more fulfilling sex and love life.

    My partner and I are very honoured and excited that we are now authorised teachers of Diana and Michael Richardson’s retreats - The Making Love Retreat® and we will be bringing this to the UK in Autumn 2025. You can find out more via the link below.
    This episode is full of really practical info for couples. Diana shares how past emotions affect sex and relationships, how to recognise when you are being emotional, what to do about it and how to bring more harmony and love into intimate relationships.
