Somatica Institute

The Somatica® Training is a sex and relationship coach program that offers you both an in-depth journey of personal growth and a chance at a lucrative, rewarding career. You can take the training for your own transformation, or to become a certified professional in the fields of sexology, sex coaching, and relationship coaching.

In 2010, Danielle Harel, PhD, and Celeste Hirschman, MA, co-founded Somatica Institute with a shared desire to fill the world with love, pleasure, and deeply satisfying relationships by training and certifying experiential sex and relationship coaches. Somatica Institute has since empowered hundreds of aspiring sex coaches, spanning the Americas, Europe, Africa, Australia, and Asia. Our alumni have gone on to achieve fulfilling careers as sex and relationship coaches, authors, podcasters, TV and film intimacy coordinators, and thought leaders.

Our Mission is to help people have the most love, secure attachment, erotic pleasure, emotional intimacy, agency and self-awareness with as little pain and trauma as possible. The Somatica Institute has been accredited by two industry-recognized certifying bodies: The American Board of Sexology (ABS), California Association of Marriage & Family Therapists (CAMFT)

Rooted in emotional and erotic connection, the Somatica Method combines talk-based coaching with experiential practices to help coaches and clients expand their skills and beliefs around intimacy. This process is the key to changing your existing habits, uncovering your true self, and unlocking a more fulfilling sex life and deeper relationships. It takes more than traditional talk-based therapy to unlearn the sexual or relational patterns we’ve picked up throughout our lives. To incite lasting change, you have to identify and shift habitual behaviors. The Somatica Method facilitates this through an experiential, embodied process, which is more effective than simply using cognitive learning techniques.

Hundreds of sex and relationship coaches have chosen to learn the Somatica Method, our revolutionary approach to Transformation through Pleasure™. As a coach, the Somatica Method teaches you to build mutually vulnerable, two-way relationships with your clients. You then in turn teach real-life intimacy tools to them within a safe, non-judgmental space.
