How I Work

My role is to support you to feel yourself at a deeper level and get in touch with your potential. Sometimes I may do this on my own; sometimes this will be in conjunction with Louise.

You are invited to connect with your body in a safe, new way that allows you to discover who you truly are. The work broadly consists of two phases. Firstly, helping you to release any old memory, emotion or trauma that is stored in the body that stops you from being truly free. You will be invite to bring awareness to your body either with words or touch. When we connect with our bodies consciously we become aware of deeper layers of experience that we may have previously denied ourselves access to – this may be feelings of sadness, grief, rage, or love, joy and pleasure.

The second phase of the work is helping you to have a different, more positive experience of your body. Similar to the first phase this may take the form of inviting you to connect with yourself either through words, movement or direct touch.

My role is to invite you deeper into yourself and reflect back how I experience you. It is rare in life that we are given lovingly authentic feedback about how our way of showing up in the world impacts others, and this is a great gift.

Session Types

I work with clients from around the world and I offer Skype sessions for those who are not available to meet in person, as I am usually working in London or California.  Many international clients have an initial session via Skype and then travel to work with me in person.

The work usually starts with a one-hour consultation (cost £150) that enables both of us to ask questions of the other and for you to let me know what you would like to get from the work. We will begin to explore how your patterns of behaviour limit you and what needs to happen to shift this. Often this initial consultation alone creates powerful shifts for clients.

If we agree to continue the work, we will book a new session for bodywork, or whatever type of work is required. This usually consists of a number of 2- or 3-hour sessions. The work is typically short-term, of between one and six sessions. Again, in many cases, one session is enough to facilitate powerful change but in some cases more work is needed.

Each session is very different, but here are some of the typical types of session that you may experience with my work.

Regular Therapy Sessions

Further Information

Regular Therapy Sessions

I offer regular 1 hour sessions to those looking to work with issues such as:

  • Dealing with sexual dysfunction (anorgasmia, vaginismus, loss of libido, etc.)
  • Awakening consciousness
  • Becoming more feminine / masculine
  • Improving existing relationships or moving towards the one you desire in your life
  • Re-awakening your sensuality
  • Balancing masculine and feminine qualities
  • Re-connecting with your feminine power
  • Healing sexual woundedness and shame

For these sessions I work in a way which has similarities to conventional therapy, but I focus particularly on the body, using techniques such as guided visualisation or imagery, body sensations, energy work, and some non-intimate physical touch.

When I work with clients in this way I find that after regular weekly sessions of 2 to 3 months, they have made sufficient changes in their lives that they are ready to move on.

Physical Release Session

Scientific evidence shows that memory, emotion and trauma are stored in the body. Just as when we get stressed we may hold tension in our shoulders, so others emotions and the memory of trauma may be held through-out the body. These sessions offer very powerful healing for the mind, spirit and body and help to reconnect mind and body through releasing the emotions that have been held in the body and that often inhibit us from staying in our body, especially during intimacy.

These sessions are usually 3 hours, although some work may be able to be performed within 2 hours. This time frame allows the body time to soften and relax more deeply into the experience. Often clients feel sufficiently healed after between one and three sessions, though in a few cases the process may take a little longer

Erotic Mindfulnes

In addition to the Physical Release work, above, Loving Touch may, with your prior consent, include gentle holding or sensual touch, reconnecting you with your feminine essence and renewing your vitality and sexual aliveness. The safe, loving and present touch which I offer allows you to drop deeper into your femininity and to feel sensual and alive, re-affirming your inner feminine nature. After such treatment, clients tell me that they leave feeling:

  • freer to express themselves
  • more confident
  • more feminine
  • lovingly held and touched
  • softer
  • expanded
  • more vital, alive, vibrant and free
  • healed

These sessions are usually 3 hours, although some work may be able to be performed within 2 hours.  This time frame allows the body time to soften and relax more deeply into the experience.  Often clients feel sufficiently healed after between one and three sessions, though in a few cases the process may take a little longer

Sexual Awakening

Some issues may be dealt with by more intimate work.  Full body, including pelvic bodywork, if that is within your boundaries, may be appropriate. This type of session has all the benefits of the Erotic Mindfulness but offers further healing and the possibility of deeper pleasure.

If you desire to work on sexual issues, to expand your pleasure or release trauma held in the pelvis, this type of session may be for you. By holding the same strong, loving masculine presence in these sessions I create a safe space for you to release any blocks to ecstasy and I help to empower you into expanding your pleasure. It is only with your consent that the session may, with your prior consent, include pelvic bodywork. The experience will usually hold deep healing for clients, even if the intention is simply to allow yourself to receive more pleasure.

Cancellation Policy

Please note that I have a cancellation policy. If you book a session and cancel it with 7 days of the session date, I will have to charge you for the session if I cannot find someone else to fill that session. This is in line with many conventional psychotherapists.

Payment

You can pay in cash or by bank transfer to my account.  I also accept Bitcoin payments. If you need to use a credit card, you may pay via Paypal, however please note that I will add any Paypal fees to the cost of the work.

To book a booking for any of the above please call Mike Lousada on +(44)7739 260 600 or email my PA, Clare on info@mikelousada.com to make a booking.
I look forward to hearing from you.

“Thank you so very much for that time yesterday. It was wonderful in many many
ways. I was touched so deeply that I am left without words as they seem too trivial
to describe it. Rather I feel a pure love for you and your work. Thank you. Thank you.
Thank you.”
