What our clients are saying
"You have such a fabulous gift for taking all the awkwardness out of sexuality and turning it into such a lovely and beautiful thing to embrace. "
"My sessions with Jacqueline were like a great conversation with a very wise sister/friend. She helped me through the end of my 25 year marriage with compassion and insight, giving me perspective, coping skills and a gentle push where required. I’m so grateful to have had her wise counsel."
"I feel an enormous sense of relief that we have a platform to communicate about intimacy and sex in an open respectful and adult way."
"You've changed the whole way I look at sex, now I feel so much more positive and free and empowered!"
"We used to fight constantly about sex, I never thought we'd find a way out. Then we found you and that's all changed. You're awesome!"
"I felt so useless and alone after I had my baby, and forcing myself to have sex with my husband made it worse. This book has helped me see in little ways how I can enjoy being a mother and a wife - which means I can enjoy being me! Thank-you."
"I never thought I’d lose my libido - but I did! Who’d have thought one little baby could be so exhausting! Your book made so much sense - it explained why I was feeling this way, why my partner was feeling this way, and what we could do about it."
"Working on the solution instead of the problem has taken me further forward then anything else I have tried."
"Before meeting Jacqueline we were fumbling around in the dark, I couldn’t go the distance and this left my beloved underwhelmed. We were caught in the daily grind, were sexually frustrated and wanting a more satisfying experience. Since Jacqueline’s sex coaching our lovemaking has become light-hearted, our lives filled with romance, dating, petting, smooches. When we make love the time is intimate, fun, erotic, orgasmic and/or all of the above. We’ve never been happier, whole or as complete – and can’t thank you enough."
"Sex was just off the agenda and we’d lost connection. We couldn’t recommend this book more. It really will help"
"We have noticed a real shift in our energies towards each other since seeing you, almost like switching from AM to FM radio, the difference is that noticeable."
"You’re the first of many counsellors who really feels comfortable and is coming from a practical, understandable place. You've helped us find the key and it's really quite simple."
"It’s been so good to find a book that tells us how to look after ourselves - not only how to look after the baby."
"We really love coming to see you, as you offer us such support and have made a huge difference to our lives."
"A massive thank you for all your guidance and wisdom. Your sex therapy played a very significant role in changing our lives forever."
"I'm so happy with ME, where I am and where we are as a couple. This is where I've been trying to get for so long and now I'm here! Thanks - you're the best!"
"Thank-you for so deliciously weaving my sexually and spiritually together again, I now feel the way I’ve always wanted and known I could feel."
"Thanks again for your brilliant life-changing support. "
"I've seen so many therapists but you're amazing! I come out of each session so much more self-aware and enlightened."
"Seeing Jacqueline has been by far one of the best decisions we have made. Before seeking her help I was very sad about our situation. I am so happy to say that as a direct result of her thoughtful guidance we are in such a different and better place in our sex life."
"We weren’t in a very good place. Reading Jacqueline’s book together made the world of difference and we’re stronger for it"
"This book has changed our lives. It’s all good practical common-sense - and it works!"
"I wish we’d had this book when our first bub was born. But better late than never, it’s been a great help second time around!"
"It’s made us realise how important it is to always be there for each other, to prioritise us, even though it’s so easy to be distracted."
