Rose C. Jiggens
I am a practitioner working with individuals, couples, polycules and groups, both online and in London UK. I have taught the Wheel of Consent in sessions and groups since 2016, along with my main co-facilitator Rupert James Alison. Our approach is to recognise that consent is influenced by many factors, including cultural dynamics of oppression and privilege, as well as our personal trauma histories. I offer Family Constellations and Trauma Sensitive Breathwork.
If you feel stuck and ready for change, I usually have something in my therapeutic and educative toolkit that will help. I live with my partners and chosen family in East London: we are GSRD, like dancing, walking our neighbours dogs, feeding squirrels and crows. https://trueselfsystems.com/
