Welcome to Open Relating

Open Relating means creating and maintaining conscious, connected, autonomous, expansive relationships, regardless of how many people are involved and what consensual agreements are made. Doing so requires an honest unflinching look at our own vulnerabilities, fears, needs, wants and desires.

My name is Roy, I'm a relationship coach and counsellor, and offer support and guidance to individuals and partnered people both online and in-person. I use a variety of methodologies from my training along with extensive lived experience as a multilingual and multicultural global citizen.

I offer coaching and counselling following the Psychosynthesis modality, and am accredited by NCPS. My support to you is based on lived experience, a great deal of self-experimentation, exploration, a range of educational courses and 7+ years of running workshops and facilitating groups. I have additional training in Radical Honesty, Non-violent Communication and Wheel of Consent.

To get started, use the navigation bar above to book a session with me, join the monthly peer support or watch one of my pre-recorded workshops.

The resources section has a wealth of free content for education and insights, including an exhaustive glossary, free podcasts and videos and an archive of articles about relationships.
