Orange Bodies is a space for you to establish a deeper connection with your body and your sexuality in an embodied way. The foundation of our work is body-focused and experiential, integrated with a trauma-informed therapeutic approach.
Our aim is to facilitate an experience through which you can bring attention to your body and your erotic self, discover new ways of being in touch with your physical pleasure that is not necessarily about sex, and develop a more embodied sexuality. In our work we look at how your experience of your body and your sexuality is hindered or suppressed and provide a safe and confidential setting to work through this for you to develop into a more integrated person. We do this through individual work and through workshops and retreats that give you the chance to experience this growth together with others.
Orange Bodies was founded by Michael Conti, a highly qualified and experienced psychological counsellor, EMDR therapist, life coach, clinical supervisor and somatic sexuality specialist. He is specialised in working with sexuality and gender, as well as with trauma. He is also the founder of Forging Paths where he offers online therapy and coaching.
At Orange Bodies we are open to all kinds of diversity. We adopt an accepting and affirmative approach towards sexual and gender identity, diverse relationship formats and alternative sexual practices. We work considerably with LGBTQIA+ individuals and couples, people who are in polyamorous or open relationships, as well as with those who are involved in kink, fetish or BDSM sexual practices.
