Kendra Hamilton, RPC
Emotions, sex, love and relationships are among the most common shared human experiences and yet they can often be some of the most difficult to talk about.
Many aspects of our culture imply we should know how to live happy stress-free lives, have great sex, healthy relationships and manage our emotions seamlessly, but that could not be further from the truth.
Emotional regulation, sexual pleasure and romantic relationships are an art and a skillset that can be developed with proper support and guidance.
I am a Registered Professional Counsellor and Somatic Sex Educator. I work with individuals experiencing anxiety, low mood, loneliness, relationship issues and stress. My specialties are issues related to sex and sexual difficulty and/or dysfunction.
So… if you want more intimacy, energy, pleasure and passion in life - and perhaps in the bedroom too 😉 send me an email to set up a free 30-minute consultation and see if I am the right counsellor for you.
I can help if you are struggling with:
- Low mood
- Relationship issues
- Low self-esteem and issues with confidence
- Female Sexual difficulty and/or dysfunction
- Female Sexual Interest/Arousal Disorder (low libido)
- Female Orgasmic Disorder
- Genito-Pelvic Pain/Penetration Disorder (pain during sex)
- Male sexual difficulty and/or dysfunction
- Male Hypoactive Sexual Desire Disorder (low desire)
- Early Ejaculation
- Delayed Ejaculation
- Erectile Disorder
If you are experiencing something not listed above, please reach out if you are being draw to my work. I may still be able to support you 🙂
I provide empathy and a non-judgemental presence to help you discuss and reflect on these concerns, as well as, learn tools for coping - all with the goal of helping you thrive!
I believe our bodies are wise and a crucial part of the healing process.
Therefore, I use body-based therapeutic exercises - breath work, mindfulness, stretches, self-massage, exercises, somatic practices, etc. - in combination with traditional cognitive therapies to help you with your mental health and/or sexual struggles.
I am strongly informed by client-centered and strengths-based theraputic approaches, while using a trauma informed lens. My practice is also informed by Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT), Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT), Solution Focused Therapy and Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT).

"My experience with Sarah has been wonderful...
I’ve struggled with body image and restrictive/binge eating most of my life and while working with her I’ve learned so many important things about the science of our bodies and ways to properly support them.
Sarah is a really positive, inspiring, knowledgeable individual who takes you through exercises to build a healthier relationship with your body.
She also recommends natural ways to support your immune system and builds a plan with you to work towards your goals. I would highly recommend working with Sarah if you’re struggling with disordered eating or want to improve your overall health and diet.”

"Sarah has been a transformational force in my fitness journey since 2016...
As a novice to exercise and fitness, Sarah was a real support in making sure that I felt comfortable with my routines and sets. I truly appreciated how open she was about where my goals should be adjusted and offered help where needed.
Many trainers aren't mindful of how their clients are feeling on the day, but Sarah is emotionally aware and I can always count on her to be there to listen to a problem while encouraging me to do that extra squat!
Fitness and health for a person take time and Sarah has been wonderfully patient throughout my journey with her. I cannot recommend her enough if you're looking for a supportive friend and trainer. "
