I’m joined today by Dr Claire Macaulay. Claire is an oncology doctor who treats people with breast cancer. She is also a sex science geek who is passionate about supporting people to create the kind of sex life that is right for them. Throwing away ideas of what people “should” be doing, she concentrate on what is meaningful and nourishing to you as an individual.
Drawing on modalities as widespread as neo-tantra, orgasmic yoga (yes that’s a thing!), somatic sexology, coaching and erotic intelligence alongside practical science and research, Claire brings her own blend of compassion, fun and pragmatism to create sex positive spaces where people feel safe to explore and thrive.
With a particular interest in working with people who are in the perimenopausal or menopausal phase of life, whether naturally occurring or as a consequence of medical treatment. Claire works with clients 1:1 or in group coaching programmes, delivering training to healthcare professionals on matters of sexuality and loves nothing more than speaking in public about all things sex.
It’s a fascinating conversation and definitely gets me challenging some of my own beliefs and inhibitions around sex, particularly as we head into perimenopause and beyond.
