Biography, Degrees and Certifications:
Welcome All! My name is Malyrah (mah-leigh-raah).
I came to Somatic Embodiment after following one of the pioneers who brought the program to Canada. After taking some of their online courses, I was hooked and could not wait to learn more.
I have completed my Core Course 3 in my Somatic Sex Educator program. I am registered for Core Course 4 in June. This training is through the Somatic Sex Educators Association in Canada.
I started my Certificate of Sexological Bodywork (CSB) in September and completed my CSB in February. This training was through the Sea School of Embodiment in Dawlish, England.
I attended a Sexual Attitude Reassessment training in January in Gabriola Island, BC.
I attended Massage Training for Somatic Sex Educators in February in Victoria, BC.
I have completed my Intimacy Educator Training program in September, 2018.
I have completed “The Sexessible Practice” training in February, 2019 – focusing on creating an accessible practice to all students of all physical, emotional and mental disabilities.
I have completed the Like a Pro Training with Dr Betty Martin, April 2019 in Seattle.
I am working through a Holistic Peer Counselling Program.
I have attended University through multiple programs (Travel Counsellor, Bachelor of Education). All of my training have fostered a love of learning and brought me to a place of love of interaction, and working with Students to heal.
This work sings to my soul. I feel so filled up when I have an opportunity to facilitate my Students through their education, discussion, healing and growth. Each student I have brings new learning and growth to me, as an educator, and I look forward to learning with you!
I have a wonderful family who support and love me. I work with amazing colleagues all over the world.
Fees are available upon request. I offer “pay what you can” days, so please mention that in your message if that interests you. Also, I offer discounts to pre-purchased sessions, so if you are interested in multiple sessions then we can come to an arrangement about the fees for those as well. I am also available for house calls depending on the case (travel fees may apply).
My practice is focused on Client-led processes. We will walk together through all the options that my practice offers. We will work with any and all options that you, the Student, are drawn to exploring or experiencing.
Together we will work to find all areas and topics that interest. Then we begin our journey together.
We work at your pace, through all of the options in my toolbox. As we work together, we will explore any pressing topics or curiosities that arise.
I welcome all persons, over the age of 18, of any gender, sexual orientation, class, race, ethnicity, nationality, relationship orientation, physical or mental or emotional disability.
