• Sex Coach
• Sex Expert

Biography, Degrees and Certifications:
I started my psychological practice in 2010 working with children. It gave me a deep insight into how emotional habits and attitudes are formed in childhood, which prevent adults from living happily and freely. Creativity and spontaneity were valuable for me in psychotherapeutic work with schoolchildren.
And one day I played enough children’s games and thought, “Isn’t it time for me to look towards adult games?” So sexuality became my area of interest.
In the past, the topic of sexuality seemed to me serious and difficult. To dive into it is like entering a dark labyrinth, in which a demon with a hellish flame in its eyes is waiting around the corner. Later, I became convinced that a similar fear of sexuality prevents many people from enjoying life. That’s why I keep on helping people.

I don’t measure sexuality by numbers, I’m far from stereotypes. I don’t evaluate or judge. If I were asked to say what sexuality is for me, I would say: “This is creativity, spontaneity and lightness!” I want others to be able to discover this world full of pleasure and life.
I believe that sexuality is one of the existential concerns (as Yalom says there are death, meaning, isolation, and freedom). But sexuality is the 5th one as I suppose. The way that person lives his/her sexuality is the way to deal with such a huge amount of phenomenon of our life (pleasure, relaxation, self-expression etc).
