SHIELD appointments are individual or small group education sessions.

These sessions are for people of any age and ability, and are tailored to the needs of people who have experienced trauma or who have additional needs.

They provide targeted relationships, sexuality and sexual health education. Participants often want to learn about topics such as public and private, types of touch, relationships, consent and pleasure etc.

We work with the participant to create an individual learning plan that best suits their needs and interests. When selecting this session type please be aware that participants are required to bring a support person with them to the appointment.

Education sessions can be provided for either individuals or small groups and topics include:

  • Private Body Parts
  • Public and Private Places
  • Types of Touch
  • My Support Network
  • Feeling Safe and Feeling Unsafe
  • Social Mapping
  • Online Safety and Relationships
  • Contraception
  • Gender and Identity
  • Intimacy
  • Relationships
  • Consent
  • Masturbation/Self Touch
  • What is Sex?
