“People think that intimacy is about sex. But intimacy is about truth. When you realize you can tell someone your truth, when you can show yourself to them, when you stand in front of them bare and their response is 'you're safe with me'- that's intimacy.” - Taylor Jenkins Reid
Embodied Coaching gives you the safe space to drop out of your Default patterns of Behaviour & Reaction into a decelerated mode of Listening, Speaking your truths, Letting go, Receiving, Recharging, Rebalancing,
As couples we have developed individual dynamics of physical & emotional intimacy. Often these dynamics are based on roles that we have taken on, roles that may not actually serve our relationship very well. The Coaching sessions are an opportunity to slow down, show yourself, to work out what you and dare ask for it, to try something new. To step into a new phase of your relationship.
The session offers you a space, a time for you, as a couple, to explore touch, communication & patterns of behaviour.
I will be coaching you to create a space to share your true desires, to explore your inner readiness for touch, for setting boundaries, for appreciation.

My offer to you:
I will create a safe container for you to slow down, show up truthfully, listen deeply and be heard & seen. I will offer you exercises and reflection, inspirations and impulses to look at the dynamics at work between the two of you, to support a new intimacy, to extend yourself - in order to come closer!
I may support you to learn new skills and offer you rituals that you can use as a couple at home.
We will start each session with a conversation about your patterns, challenges, wishes and intentions. We will weave exercises, touch structures and communication. You will have opportunities to give and receive touch.
The coaching session is a beautiful, powerful space for transformation and development.
The session can be used as a SPA DAY for your relationship, a preparation for shared time away so that restoration and reconnection can be possible or I can support you over several sessions to make more significant changes and developmental steps.
A pre-work questionnaire will give you opportunity to share what is going on for you and enable me to create a bespoke session for you.
First session: 4 hours - £360
Subsequent sessions can be 3 or 4 hours: £270 or £360
'We have worked with Anja for a number of years to enable our relationship to discover new places which help us cross thresholds (not always easy) to reach our fuller selves individually, and together. This work has been, and continues to be invaluable to us. I feel the ripples we create together not only benefit us but travel through our children, family, communities and the wider world.' L. and K., Sussex
'The session was profoundly insightful, challenging and helpful. Like a wise friend pointing to the hurts and power in me.' Z. and J., East Sussex
'Anja surpassed our expectations in helping us deepen our connection as a couple. She’s a wise, intuitive and insightful guide with a great capacity to observe what was unfolding between us and then reflect back to us in easily understood language, with gentle exercises to explore the emerging issues. We particularly appreciated the experiential and embodied nature of Anja’s work encouraging us to move from our heads into our hearts, allowing us to let go of much of the ‘noise’ and stories which had been interrupting intimacy. She supported us in being able to reveal greater levels of vulnerability opening us to deeper truths within ourselves. Her work is both accessible and profound and we would warmly recommend Anja to any partnership considering couples coaching.'
