Treatments For Women, Men & Couples

Colin has been providing sensual and psychosensual treatments to women and couples since 2008. Colin sees most of his clients at his stunning 24th floor luxury treatment room in Battersea Central London. Colin works with people of all ages, nationalities, ethnicities and body types. Some are single by choice, some are reluctantly single, and many are partnered in loving yet sexually unfulfilling relationships. Some are in relationships where the sex has become routine and predictable, others are in good relationships but need more, sexually. A few are from cultures that restrict sensual and sexual expression, and others are simply nervous and naive, lacking sexual confidence and knowledge. To hear how Colin works with this diverse range of clients and to learn more about his unique abilities as a ground-breaking therapist – click HERE.

45% Discount – 12 month Payment Plan for Female Clients

For women taking a regular sensual massage is not just a pleasure, it is fast becoming realised that it is a health necessity, both physically and mentally. In todays world of busy careers, singledom or cultural restrictions many women now find themselves in situations where sensual intimacy is either intermittent, irregular or even non existent.

To help women enjoy regular ‘me time’ I have set up a yearly payment plan to enable some to enjoy 12, 15 or 20 hours of massage over 12 months at discount and with spread payments. Maximum places 40 so hurry if this fits your needs and budget. [Click here] for more details

Colin’s Media Coverage

Read how the media view Colin’s work

Over the past five years, my work as a sex engineer and therapist has caught the attention of the media and I am fortunate to have been featured in some of the most well-known outlets: Cosmopolitan, The BBC, and recently The Metro and The Independent newspapers, to name a few. What is interesting is how over the years the approach and tone of the articles has changed from sceptical and almost judgemental to informative and supportive. From my first 6-page feature in Cosmo in 2015 Would you pay this man £175 to give you an orgasm? to the most recent Cosmo article in January 2018 Why these 4 women pay a stranger to give them orgasmic massages – there is strong evidence that the importance of having a fulfilling and healthy sex life is finally being supported by the mainstream press.

Tania - Psychosensual, July 2018

I went to see Colin for a 3-hour psychosensual treatment, with a pretty clear idea of what I wanted to work on. What drew me to his particular approach was the quite unique combination of psychological mentoring and physical/sensual touch. I wanted to spend some time exploring my difficulty and vulnerability around receiving pleasure from a man. I had an idea of where it came from but had never really had an opportunity to look at it with a qualified experienced professional.

I appreciated Colin’s warmth, kindness, care, openness and genuine curiosity – all of which helped me to relax and feel safe. The pre-session authorisation form also felt to me like an indispensable part of the process; it felt both reassuring and liberating to be able to communicate my boundaries and preferences in this way. Last but not least – I thoroughly enjoyed the sensual massage. Colin is very skilled in what he does and I felt I was being introduced to an expanded repertoire of types of touch, stimulation and pleasure! I will definitely be going back for another session.

Che - Absolute Massage, April 2018

I told Colin it has been over two years since I have been sexually charged and active. He was beyond professional and extremely caring and built trust and rapport very quickly. He understood my experiences and took a moment to look and speak with me. I never imagined having such an experience, as a Nigerian woman in my early twenties I needed to learn a lot about my body and my carnal instincts and Colin helped me accomplish that. He was extremely thorough and focused on my body and my pleasure. He spent some time educating me on the various historical contexts that shape how women behave sexually and most importantly how women respond to sexual exploration and enjoyment. He delved further into my career and social circles and helped me notice patterns and trends that have an impact on my sexual health. He not only made this a very pleasurable experience but also focused on the therapeutic aspect of our session. Words cannot describe how satisfied I was with this appointment, I strongly encourage any woman that is embarking on a path of self-discovery or simply in need of pleasure with an educational foundation to support the experience. I am travelling back but will come and visit Colin again as soon as I am in London.

Emma - Absolute Massage, August 2017

I fully appreciated the time you took to find out the history and reasons why l might have had problems achieving orgasms. It was an eye-opener and I was impressed with your subject knowledge. Although l was nervous to begin with the glass of wine helped! I knew l could totally trust you and knew that l was in your expert hands. I was blown away by the whole experience and for me the icing on the cake was achieving that elusive orgasm! It has changed my perception and l am very happy about the experience. I can absolutely recommend you to others and once again a big thank you!

Gemma - Tension Release, February 2018

I felt really relaxed and tried to disconnect from the day to day activities while you were doing an amazing job! I must say you are very experienced, not that I had lots of guys in my life and would be able to compare but the fact is you made me feel relaxed, you showed care and tenderness.  Every little thing you have done was in its place and I actually enjoyed it! It’s been a pleasure meeting you and I want to see you again very soon!

Sharon - Female Psychosensual, August 2017

Sharon has taken 4 appointments over 2-3 months. One Absolute then a series of three Psychosensual

I spent so many years feeling that I would always remain a caterpillar, never progressing to the next stage. Then I made it to becoming a chrysalis, sadly for many years, this is where I thought I would remain. Encased, frozen in a cocoon for eternity, never knowing what else was out there. Then out of nowhere, I have turned into the most amazing bright, colourful big butterfly. I can now choose where I fly off too, where I land and how long for. I now decide, no longer feeling/allowing myself to be controlled. Pure magic that’s what it is. With your help and guidance, I am now in a place that I thought I would never get too. I am so glad that you do the service that you do.

Clive - Male Psychosensual, February 2018

I just wanted to say a late but very big THANK YOU for our meeting last Tuesday.  It was all quite overwhelming but all good.  I didn’t know what to expect but you made me feel welcome and safe.  I enjoyed talking with you so much, especially about anxiety.  My apologies for being anxious and maybe not giving you the fullest answers or even remembering all I meant to tell you.  It was a big relief to tell you the many things I was able to.  The massage was incredible and I feel as if it was helpful in so many ways.  It really seems to have brought me to life.  It made me realise the importance of touch – giving and receiving – and just how much this has been lacking with my sexual partners.  Likewise, your suggestions on things that might help were very helpful and I am currently following up all of them.  What I plan to do is to see how your recommendations work out in practice.  If there are still difficulties (or even if not) I would very much like to see you again, say, within the next couple of months.  It would be fantastic to talk to you again about anxiety and combine this with massage.

Couples’ Treatments & Workshops

Alex & Sanja – January 2018

Thank you very much for your professionalism and experienced expertise. Your exquisite professional demeanour made it possible for my wife to allow herself to receive an incredible intimate sensual massage. Me being there standing by and later participating in the session made it even more enjoyable and exciting for both of us as a couple and individually. Thank you again and look forward to repeating it when possible.

Karen & Mike – December 2017

Just a quick email to say Thank you to you for yesterday.  You are a great teacher and Keith & I thoroughly enjoyed our time with you. It was lovely to experience the day together and something we will always remember and will endeavour to practice what we have learnt.  Keith is definitely feeling more positive and it has certainly reinforced our intimacy.  He has a spring back in his step!
