Welcome to Purple Healing!
My name is Sharlot Clark. I work to "speak your language" in my counselling, so I can empower you with tools to effectively address your issues. My approach is:
- Trans-friendly. It's time to move past simplistic notions of biology, sex and gender: there are a multitude of ways of experiencing and expressing a multitude of gender identities.
- Kink-friendly. Kink/BDSM based on the informed consent of all parties can be part of a healthy, respectful, loving relationship.
- Sexworker-friendly. My counselling is about providing support to help you address the issues of concern to you - not judgmental moralising about your work.
- Fat-accepting. I strongly oppose fat stigma and fat shaming, and instead support Health At Every Size.
- Poly-friendly. Polyamory - ethical, consensual nonmonogamy - can be a healthy relationship style with its own unique challenges and rewards.
- Queer-friendly. Bi, lesbian, pansexual, gay .... I respect and welcome all sexual orientations involving informed consent between adults.
- Feminist. Women and women's lives have value in their own right, independently of men and the male world.
- Sex-positive. Human sexuality is not something best avoided or 'transcended'. It's something that can be celebrated and integrated into one's life in a way beneficial to both oneself and others.
My practice is located in Thornbury, Melbourne, Australia. However, I also provide counselling via video/voice services (e.g. Skype) where necessary and/or appropriate.
As a queer, polyamorous mother of two adult children, with two transgendered life partners, I bring a wealth of life experience to my counselling. To find out more, or to make an appointment, please contact me.
