Online coaching from professional BDSM educator and former International Mr Leather, John Pendal – either as video calls to individuals and relationship groups, or workshops to larger numbers.
John has 18 years experience teaching BDSM workshops around the world. His life coaching practice helps people who feel like outsiders with any area of their life, both personal and professional. Coaching takes place over video calls, so you can be calling from anywhere in the world.
John is relatable rather than aspirational. During his life John has experienced negative thoughts, gay conversion therapy, coeliac disease, back surgery and is autistic. He has also become the only British winner of the International Mr Leather contest in Chicago and had a ten year career as a stand-up comedian which has taken him around the world.
He wants to help other people, especially those who feel like an outsider. You may feel that way because of your gender or sexuality, neurodiversity, health diagnosis or just a feeling of “not fitting in”. John will listen and ask questions in total confidence and without judgement.
