Elemental Shamanism

DK is a queer, polyamorous, shamanic, trans man who has been facilitating workshops, seminars, and rituals at pagan events (such as Litha Camp, Pagan Pride, Oak Spirit Gatherings, and Queer Spirit Festival) and kink & sacred sexuality events (such as Kinkfest, BBB, LAM, SWAMP, MsC conference, Urban Tantra) for almost a quarter of a century. He’s been a speaker for NHS, Polyday London, Pink Therapy Annual Conference, seven UK Universities, Tantra4GayMen, Unitarian Youth Workers and many more.

He lives in Derbyshire and loves working with the land in this pretty, green, hilly bit of middle England. His holistic psychotherapy practice specialises in gender, sexuality, and relationship diversity (GSRD), neurodivergence, and disability. With a foot firmly in both psychology and shamanic worlds, he specialises in diversity and personal growth. His experience of living Leather and navigating the world as a spoonie informs his work as a practitioner.

Always a waiting list to work with me in any capacity, so get your name down!

This space is facilitated by a white person who strives to be anti-racist and anti-oppressive in their practice; it is trans-led and centres the safety of Queer, LGBTQI, BIPOC, neurodivergence, and disabled folk.


An opportunity to work deeply, spiritually, and personally with DK.

Annual Circle (currently not open to applications) is a yearlong commitment to self development and growth, that invites you to…

… develop your spiritual practice in harmony with the seasons, elements, and festivals. Bring your own cultural heritage and learn about others’ with respect and compassion. Whether you’ve held your own circle or never journeyed before, whether you’re an experienced druid or starting out as a baby witch, Circle offers you an opportunity for self-development on every level – emotionally, mentally, and spiritually.

unmask. We all wear masks in everyday life as the strong single parent, the capable entrepreneur, the disabled person who manages their pain, the racialised person who deals with microaggressions, the neurodivergent person who has to present allistic. Circle is a space where your mask can drop, and you can discover what it means to be yourself. We don’t shy away from exploring the power of our sexual energy.

… come as you are. Your trepidation, laughter, fatigue, excitement, anger, overflowing joy and sceptical reservation are welcome here. Come as you are and find yourself and your circumstances welcomed and accepted exactly as you show up. We gain a deep sense of each other in working together, and the intimacy and trust that unfold enables the magic to happen. Celebrate your wins and feel held through your heartaches.

… find balance. Do you have a big goal you’re focusing on in the next 12 months? Do you need more playfulness in your life or more emotional release? If you’re not sure, you’ll soon find out through journey and group work. Spirit has a way of whispering into our ears – or sometimes hitting us bluntly over the head with the next steps we need to take. Elemental work will balance your life.

The Circle is held by DK
