Health Professionals

Health professionals tell us time and time again, that they have never had any, or very little, Sexual Health/Human Sexuality training and therefore lack skills, information, resources and confidence to address these important issues.

Our sessions, tailored from as little as 1 hour to all day training, focus on providing a greater understanding of what Human Sexuality is, tips on how to address Sexual Health with patients/clients, and how to respond to questions and difficulties encountered in their every day work.

Participants are provided with practical examples and resources with the aim of them being able to start implementing sexual health into the overall wellbeing care of their clients as soon as they complete the session.

Vanessa has 24 years experience as Sexual and Reproductive Health Nurse and Clinical Nurse Consultant, she has heard thousands of patients stories and shares them with participants to facilitate learning and knowledge.
