Hi everyone. This Patreon account is all about my way of giving back to the GSRD (gender, sexuality, relationship diversity) communities in which I both live and work. I already do, profoundly, and this is hopefully a way that I can viably continue to do so. 

Many already know about my Pay-It-Forward scheme, to part-bursary fund therapy sessions (psychotherapy & counselling) for the less privileged, whether by sexuality, gender, relationship, ability, race or the intersectionalities therein. So my less privileged clients pay what they can, and the bursary fund (& me) makes up the rest. So past and present clients and others who publicly support my work, have contributed when they can to enable others to receive therapy. To be honest, this work has been coming out of my own pocket more often than not, as donations to the fund - as gloriously generous as people have been - have been sporadic. So fundamentally I'm hoping that by having a base of Patreon investors that this work can continue to be provided, and take less food from my own table!

My mission is to take therapy out of the oft-criticised realm of a 'wealthy leisure pursuit' and into the hands of those who truly need it, most especially in these times where the world can be so challenging for any person of difference. This work is about recognising those with the least privilege in our society, and offering them an often much needed helping hand.

Current Offerings:

  • Pay-it-Forward (Article on my blog about the funding scheme for part paid bursary places for therapy)
  • Website (Psychotherapy and counselling; overdue to be updated!)
  • Facebook Page (Counselling FB Page)

One example of the educational work that I do (via the link below) of a presentation I gave for the Pink Therapy Annual Conference 'Beyond the Rainbow', on how as a therapist to discern whether kink or bdsm activity is healthy or unhealthy for a particular client.

Alongside this important therapeutic work, I am widely known for giving workshops and lectures and sharing knowledge of diversities of gender, sexuality, relationships (including LGBTQIA+, Polyamory, Kink, Tantra and more), having lectured at 5 national universities and held or facilitated workshops in literally hundreds of events since the '90s, both smaller and larger national events (organising director of Kinkfest 2014), and giving workshops and keynote speeches for everyone from Tantra4GayMen, Pink Therapy's Annual Conferences, Polyday, the Unitarian Church youth leaders training weekend and many more). This work invariably takes time out of my limited earning schedule and mostly comes out of my own pocket!

So PLEASE consider supporting my work. I will endeavour to create an inspiring and heartwarming monthly newsletter to keep people updated on all the good work that I'm doing, to share results of this Patreon fund with you, my supporters. I'll include things like (with permission) case studies where this fund has enabled individuals therapeutic work, and all workshops information ahead of time where possible to allow you to attend for yourself or read all about it! 

CHOOSE your reward level based on what you can afford and what rewards you'd like, and do it now while it's hot on your mind!

PATRONS!

Goals
$73 of $360 per month
This goal will cover approximately a dozen bursary placements per month (2.5 per week of my 24 sessions available) for therapy; where the client pays what they can genuinely afford (due to lack of privilege around gender, sexuality, culture, ability etc) usually around half, and the bursary fund (and me) makes up the rest.
