As a Certified Sexological Bodyworker and professional member of the Somatic Sex Educators' Association of Australasia (SSEAA), I hold a strict code of professional conduct and adhere to the Code of Ethics of the SSEAA.
My name is Danniel Shervey. Somatic Loving was born of a desire to share the sense of sexual freedom that comes from experiencing sexuality through the body in awareness; through loving IN the body.
At the encouragement of friends who liked my naturally intuitive touch, I began my bodywork career in the late '80's. Completing a Dipoma in Swedish and Therapeutic Massage, quickly followed by a Certificate level training in Sports Massage. After massaging for a few years I felt there was something missing and I found my way to Reiki. On the completion of my level 1 Reiki training my bodywork took a whole new path to include the life-force of the person, and after training as a Reiki Master I found I naturally worked much more deeply with the subtle energies of the body, creating profound change for those I worked with.
Some years later, after realising that I was not happy in my sexual self I delved deeper into the human psyche by starting a Masters degree in Gestalt Therapy. I also undertook trainings in sexuality including Sexological Bodywork. What I have gained since then has been an exponential growth in my own life and I now serve to pass the benefits of conscious, consensual, authentic, present, embodied sexuality (and relating) to those on a similar journey. These benefits are offered through the creative aspects of sexuality and the wholistic principle of "Self".
My speciality is the body, its energy, sexuality and awareness. Empowerment is my core desire for working with people which is why I take a relational approach - me meeting you, us as people working together to achieve your desired outcome/s. I work intuitively from an educated and experiential perspective, and sessions are tailored to suit your needs. All work is consensual and verbally contracted to meet your needs and maximise your desired outcome/s.
My personal values are integrity, authenticity, connection, and respect. I bring my full self into every session with heart-felt presence, commitment and transparency.
