Bound BDSM are delighted to formally announce our partnership with All for Love Coaching
You can hear Anneke's interview and join her Q and A session on the 19th April on our free to use Discord server, link to join at the foot of our homepage here.
Anneke has written her first blog for us...................
I've spent the last few weeks in talks (and texts, and Discord messages) with BoundBDSM, and finally can reveal to you all our new partnership! My coaching services are available through their website HERE. Cue me squealing and bouncing and generally being a nuisance.
"But Anneke!" you shout, "Who even are you? Why should we care?"
Let's start with the basics. What are my qualifications?
a Board Certified Behavior Analyst (BCBA),
working on becoming a Certified Professional Co-Active Coach (CPCC),
a BA in linguistics and education,
an MS in behavior analysis, and...
really goddamn weird.
"Okay, fair enough," you might follow up with, "but what are you doing here?"
I'm coaching! Specifically, I'm doing relationship coaching with a focus on LGBTQ+, polyamorous, and/or kinky individuals!
Life coaching is...
a goal-oriented approach to progress,
individually tailored to each person,
based in curiosity and inquiry to your underlying beliefs,
an ongoing process
However, there are a lot of misconceptions around the term! So just to be clear:
Life coaching is NOT...
a treatment for mental health disorders,
a protected term.
"Fine, whatever," you grumpily agree, "But why LGBTQ+, polyamorous, and/or kinky people?
I am LGBTQ+, polyamorous, and kinky!
I definitely would have liked someone like me to guide my introduction to the broader community years ago, and I had the thought one day, "Why couldn't that be me?"
Now that I can sense you're slowly coming around to the idea, I should introduce myself more fully.
In the vanilla realm, I'm a giant nerd. I love musical theater, video games, and anime. My hobbies include embroidery, pole dancing, knitting, reading, resin art, and singing. I'm involved in two separate D&D campaigns and am the proud caretaker of two cats and eight spider plants.
In the kink realm, I'm.... well, we did a whole interview on exactly what I am, but you'll have to be good and wait to hear that, now won't you?
On April 19th, my interview with BoundBDSM is going live covering the intersection between life coaching and kink, where I discuss my approach and how I avoid accidentally treading into Domme territory (let's leave that to the professionals!). Afterwards there's going to be a live Q&A where I answer audience questions about my services. I hope to see and hear lots of you there.
Ciao for now, lovelies!
