How I Work
I am a sex-positive, BDSM and Kink-knowledgeable professionally qualified psychodynamic psychotherapist and am familiar working with a wide range of relationship models and gender dynamics. I work with people from a diverse range of cultural backgrounds, including individuals from queer, poly and kink communities, sex workers, and people who identify across the gender spectrum. I provide a supportive, non-judgemental space in the City of London and online.
I offer both short and long-term, therapy and counselling to help individuals, couples and groups involved with alternative sexual lifestyles and relationships who want to explore issues associated with their choices. I do not work with my clients to discourage any consensual, healthy sexual practices. As a kink-positive therapist this means that you can reveal and share aspects of your sexuality safe in the knowledge that they will be accepted as a normal healthy part of your life.
I hold UKCP accreditation and BACP, BPC & BPS membership.

It is the mission of Ouroboros Therapeutic Arts to change the world one person at a time through holistic healing and health. Using a combination of massage therapy techniques and modalities, energy healing, myofascial release, holistic wellness coaching, and empowerment through education, Kristina strives to aid her clients in living pain-free lives by managing and reducing chronic pain; recover from accidents, injuries, and surgeries; and release and heal from their traumas. She believes that helping individuals heal themselves will create an effect similar to a ripple in a pond, expanding outward and healing communities.
Kristina has been a Licensed and Registered Massage Therapist in New York State since 2017. She is also a certified practitioner of the John F. Barnes’ Myofascial Release Approach®, and an Energy Healer, using both hands-on and hands-off energy healing techniques. The John F. Barnes’ Myofascial Release Approach® has become an integral part of her practice, and more she learns about this powerful modality, the more important it becomes to her personal life, the practice, and the more passionate she become about sharing it with her clients and community.
She is also a certified practitioner of Kineseology Taping, or K-Tape, and Myofascial Cupping. Both K-Tape and Myofascial Cupping are used to aid in pain management, nerve entrapment, proprioception, stabilization, decompression of tissues, postural correction, and more. Myofascial Cupping is offered free of charge during therapeutic massage sessions. K-Taping is offered as an add-on, and works well as an adjunct to therapeutic massages and Myofascial Release sessions.
The healing studio is located in her home, and as such all sessions are by appointment only; no walk-ins available.
