Attention Asexuals, Allies, And Asexualise Channel Fans! Want More Asexual Help? Asexual Advice, Live Coaching, Training, A Monthly Meetup, And Inspirational Journal All In One? Join Asexualise Academy Club Now.


What you will learn when you join Asexualise Academy Club

Mental health (Coping techniques/strategies) for anxiety, depression, stress)

In 2012, I freed myself of long-term depression and learned how to self-love. Over the years I have learned a lot about how to manage my anxiety better, so I can pass this knowledge onto you. Within the Asexualise Academy Club, you will learn how to develop new habits that make you feel good and are likely to stick, as we work on our Inspirational Quotes and Questions Journal together, to foster positive emotions, develop a feel good mindset, and grow your self-awareness, so you become a happier, more vibrant and energetic version of YOU, with less emotional pain in your life, which will reduce anxiety and stress, and help alleviate depression. Get extra group coaching, training, and insights, not in the journal, to help you to be more mentally healthy.

Mindset and Motivation (How to maintain a positive mindset, stay motivated)

Most people go along in life, with no real direction. They get up, do the same routines, and wonder why nothing changes to make their life better. Change starts from within. So in order to develop a positive mindset you need to develop more self-awareness. Each of the inspirational quotes and questions in your journal, is designed to inspire you and get you to think more deeply about yourself, your life, and reflect on what changes need to be made, to have a more positive mindset and be motivated to start each new day with renewed hope, confidence, and aliveness. Change can be difficult but with the right support, which you will get in the club, you won’t have to go it alone and you have support there whenever you need it most. Together we can make a change, and be the change others want to see, we can turn our life around and be more happy.

Advice, help, and guidance, about asexuality and related asexual life topics

Feeling lost, alone, or misunderstood, in this highly sexualised world? Trying to make sense of it as your asexual self, can be really tough, but with this kind of club, it will be like we are one big family and there to support each other, rather than living with aliens speaking another language. Worry no more. With my help and your participation, you can feel relieved that I am here to help you to live your best asexual life. Ask me anything you like about asexuality and asexual life related topics in live Q and A sessions within the group. You can post your questions beforehand and I will discuss them in live streams exclusive to group members only, and you can post questions at any time.

Dating and relationship advice (Including healthy friendships and relationships)

Everyone wants sex! At least that’s the way it feels if you’re asexual! Get more personalised help with exclusive members only group coaching on how to grow, develop, maintain and sustain, healthy relationships and friendships, including with yourself – so you stop self-sabotaging. Discover how to spot narcissists and abusers, before they worm their way into your heart, and steal your soul. Learn how to have open, honest, healthy discussions, with those you care about, like and love, so you can be more of your authentic self and lead a happier life. Learn how to put boundaries in places with sexuals and how to understand sexual language more, so you don’t get pulled into things you wish you never had! Learn how to keep yourself safe and happy.

A regular monthly online asexual/ally/channel fan meetup

Are you fed up with not having enough in person support around you? Do you feel like a fish out of water and you are wiggling around clinging to dear life and gasping for air? Do you feel suffocated and repressed among people who don’t understand you, who think you are making it up, or who completely invalidate your asexual identity and feelings? If so, I know how you feel. For years I didn’t know I was asexual, but I have always known I’m different. The relief of discovering I’m asexual in March 2014, and finding an online community of people like me, with similar mindset, beliefs and thinking, was just incredible. But… I was so desperate to meet other asexuals in person, offline, rather than just through forum comments or the occasional PM, to cement my asexual identity and be around people who understood me, and I could develop and strengthen those message only relationships into something real and tangible. So in 2015, I started successfully holding in person asexual meetups and when the pandemic hit in 2020, I did a few online asexual meetups, by Skype, these were popular and asexual people from all around the world came together, but I couldn’t devote enough time to do them regularly. For club members only, we will be having an online meetup, at least once a month, around the first Sunday of the month, scheduled for an hour, using the chat room and video feature, in our exclusive members only Facebook group. This means you don’t have to log out of Facebook and into somewhere else, it’s a lot more convenient, and if we need to get together for a special occasion or just to have extra support, we can do it! This is the next best thing to an in person meetup and it will help your mental health to have regular face-to-face contact with others like you!

Time management and productivity hacks and tips, so get the most out of life

We only have one life, but if we don’t feel we are making any progress in it, we stagnate, procrastinate, and feel down in the dumps. Can you relate? So our life takes a turn for the worse and we feel like giving up. I know, I have been there, and I’m still a work in progress where procrastination is concerned. I don’t pretend to be perfect, but over the years I have learnt many things to help me manage my time better and be productive, so I will be teaching these to you. Once you can manage your time more effectively, you will automatically become more productive, feel like you are making progress, and have greater satisfaction in life by achieving more, making yourself happier in the process.

Life hacks on how to live your best life, tailored to group needs

From where to get tasty allergy free foods, to how to market your own book, make spare cash online, or how to make new friends, it’s your group, so you tell me what knowledge and information you need, and I will do my best to provide you with it. I have been studying personal and professional development since 2012, so I am a walking brain of knowledge and experience that you can utilise to help you live your best life, to love yourself more, to fulfil your goals, ambitions and dreams, and to make your difference in the world, to make it a brighter and more happier place, because you’re in it. You matter, your needs matter, so make this group your own, tell me what you need to know and I will throw in some surprise life hacks along the way, to make your asexual personal life journey, the best one ever.

Heck, we ALL need this, with the way the world’s been lately.



Asexualise Academy Club Monthly Membership:

Everthing you get with the Inspired Journal Monthly Membership as the Inspirational Quotes And Questions Journal comes with your Asexualise Academy Club membership. Live group training/coaching in a private Facebook Group, covering all of the topics in the “what you will learn section”, with a strong focused on improving your mindset, motivation, and overall mental health and wellbeing, as we go through the Inspirational Quotes And Questions Journal For The Soul premium E-Book, together each day, with additional coaching and training from me on the various topics, Q&A, and a monthly online meetup. To help you live your best life, and be happy.


Asexualise Academy ACE-happy Monthly Membership.

Includes Asexualise Academy Club monthly membership for however long you stay subscribed. (So excellent value for money)

Each month you will receive a 1 hour one-to-one therapeutic audio or video chat session, via Skype or Facebook Messenger with someone who will listen and understand you. This is not a counselling session, but rather having someone regular to talk to, who has lived experience of mental health, so understands what you are going through, including depression in the past, and anxiety. Who will be that constant in your life, and who you can share your thoughts, feelings, and emotions with, without being judged. So whether you are a person who experiences high levels of anxiety, or you are a secret crossdresser with no one to talk to about it, I am here for you.

Sessions will be billed every 30 days and need to booked at least 2 weeks in advance to secure your time and date within those 30 days, sessions are not rolled over, so if you don’t book your session and use it within those 30 days, you lose it. You will still retain your membership to the Asexualise Academy Club though, and get all of the benefits that go with that, and access, for however long you keep up your subscription, so you will still get the group coaching from me.

As this is one-to-one, I can only take on a limited amount of ACE-happy members, once the membership hits a certain number of members, this plan will not be available any more, and an individual ACE-Happy chat session is currently £45 without the Asexualise Academy Club, or Inspirational Journal that comes with membership, Premium E-Book. So you save £15 a month by getting this plan.


Asexualise Academy Coaching Monthly Membership

Includes Asexualise Academy Club monthly membership for however long you stay subscribed. (So excellent value for money)

Each month you will receive a 1 hour one-to-one coaching session, via Skype or Facebook Messenger, this is not a counselling session, and it’s not the same as a therapeutic ACE-happy chat session, which is more about me being a friendly ear to listen to you, to understand you, and for you to experience the acceptance and validity of your identity, as you are.

A coaching session is where we work on a specific problem you are facing in your life, and we work together to help you overcome that problem so you can move forward in your life. This involves your active participation in wanting to change yourself and your life in some way. So it requires you to actively want to make a change, and admit that not everything is alright and you want to work hard to change it, because the pain you are experiencing is just too much to bear. It requires me to ask you appropriate coaching questions for you to reflect on your life to date and current circumstances in relation to problem, and this will give you new insights that will help to remedy the situation. At least 3 coaching sessions is usually always required to help you with any problem you are facing, as we explore the problem and your current situation in the first session (or more), this is known as the exploring stage, we then dive deep into what’s really going on for you, which is the discovery and insights stage in the second session (or more), and the third session is focuses on creating a plan of action, tailored to you and your specific circumstances, to move forward in your life, which is usually the 3rd session (or more). I say more because in order to really dive deep, we could easily spend a number of sessions on each of the stages, and there may be a number of smaller stages in-between, depending on how self-aware you are and how complex the problem is that you are facing. Some people have coaching for 6 months, or a year, or on-going, to hold themselves accountable for their progress and stop them from getting into bad habits again and going off track from their plan, so that change never happens. There may be homework involved and you may want to book more that one session a month for it. But with the monthly membership, you are guaranteed at least one session a month, to keep you on track.

Sessions will be billed every 30 days and need to booked at least 2 weeks in advance to secure your time and date within those 30 days, sessions are not rolled over, so if you don’t book your session and use it within those 30 days, you lose it. You will still retain your membership to the Asexualise Academy Club though, and get all of the benefits that go with that, and access, for however long you keep up your subscription, so you will still get the group coaching from me.

As this is one-to-one, I can only take on a limited amount of coaching members, once the membership hits a certain number of members, this plan will not be available any more, and an individual coaching session is currently £80 without the Asexualise Academy Club or Inspirational Journal, Premium E-Book. So you save £25 a month by getting this plan.


Unique Unicorn Art Posters

But… I only want the 2 Inspirational Unicorn Art Posters, so can I get those pleassssssseee, pretty please, with unicorn magic on top! As you asked me so nicely, for £7 you can.

Do You Want More Passion, Sensuality And Satisfaction, In Your Dating And Relationships?


Do You Want More Passion, Sensuality And Satisfaction, In Your Dating And Relationships? If yes, then Erogenousity is for you! Watch the video above to discover the 3 needs you must know, for more passion, sensuality and satisfaction, in your dating and relationships! And subscribe for more practical dating and relationship advice!

Are you fed up of being dateless? Are you confused by today’s technology and how to successfully date in today’s online world? Is your relationship stale and passionless?

If you are struggling with dating in today’s modern times, if you are fed up of feeling alone – even if you are in a relationship, or getting people who are just mismatched and no good for you, Erogenousity is for you!

Erogenousity, is all about being erogenously generous with your partner or date. It takes a holistic and practical approach to dating and relationships, and takes into account, body, mind, soul, and the senses, for ultimate match success.

Erogenousity is my new YouTube show for men and women who want more passion, sensuality and satisfaction, in their dating and relationships. Who are fed up with all the mind games and manipulation techniques being shoved down their throat by other dating and relationship coaches, and who are looking for guidance from a modern 21st century dating and relationship coach, that can show you how to have loving, healthy, happy, dating and relationships.

Many of you know that I help asexuals, those who lack sexual attraction, on my reality TV chat show for asexuals www.youtube.com/asexualisemyasexuallife and as you know, I am asexual myself. After 5 years of coaching asexuals in how to have loving, healthy, and happy, dating and relationships on that channel, and being approached by more and more sexuals for dating and relationship advice, I decided I need to help more people. I also discovered through my own asexual life journey, that although I don’t experience any sexual attraction, I still have a hugely erogenous side to my nature, especially with a guy’s upper body, and I have had sex in the past, so can help a lot more people than I’m currently helping.

So if you are struggling with dating or your current relationship, or a relationship or date, is non-existent for you, be sure to subscribe to Erogenousity here https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCOSRlMro_YXCDRQuW96S7Ig 

I would love to know what you think of the new channel and this video? Please leave your comments either here, or below the video on YouTube!

I am so happy Erogenousity is now live and officially launched. Website to follow.

Until next time, stay quirky and write soon,

Sandra xx

It’s Official – I am the UK Blog Trainer


Hi everyone
image

Today is the official launch of my new blog trainer business and my new http;//www.blogtrainer.co.uk site.

Teaching Blogging as an aid to recovery – How to start a WordPress.com blog, has been successful, and I thoroughly enjoy teaching it so much, that I now offer to teach blogging as a business.

I have been blogging for 4 years this year, and like a lot of you, I can’t get enough of it. I am still learning and evolving as a blogger and I always will be.

Including this blog, I currently have 4 blogs that I blog to as frequently as possible. Although this blog is always my priority because it’s my first love, I value your loyalty and like to give back to you.

I provide inspirational blog posts at http://www.beatredundancyblues.wordpress.com

I blog to give help, advice and inspiration, to people who have been made redundant on my http://www.beatredundancyblues.co.uk site.

I blog about events I have been to, about my interests, passions and businesses at http://www.sandrabellamy.co.uk

Two of my blogs are WordPress.com blogs, the others are self hosted WordPress.org blogs, so I can teach both, but the person I am teaching, would need their own WordPress.org site to do so. I can also create WordPress.org sites, using templates, widgets and plugins.

If I can take a business on a deep and meaningful journey to connect with its customers, I will be filled with joy. If I can help make just one more person’s life so much happier and more rewarding through blogging, I will be ecstatic

If you know of anyone who could benefit from me teaching them, please spread the word. I can teach one-to-one, or as part of a workshop for up to 8 people. As one-to-one teaching is bespoke, prices can vary, they start from £30 an hour, in the Exeter area, in the UK. If they quote this post on this blog, they save 10% off an hour, or on a workshop.

For anyone living outside the UK who wants training via Google Hangouts or Skype, please contact me using email in the first instance.

My business number is 01392 434202 for a free 20 minute consultation, or they can email me at blogtrainer@blogtrainerUK.

Catch me on Twitter at http://www.twitter.com/blogtrainerUK or Facebook http://www.facebook.com/BlogtrainerUK

Thanks for your continued support. I couldn’t do it without you.

Blogging as an aid to recovery – How has it helped you?


Hi everyone

I published this post recently but it would seem that it has posted in the month that I first started to write it in draft form. This may have caused you to miss it in your reader and so here it is again.

( A huge thanks to Ralph, from bluefish way.com who left a comment on the original post. It will be a huge help to my learners.)

It’s official, amongst everything else I do, I am a Tutor for the RLC (Recovery Learning Community).

I will be teaching my first course, “Blogging as an aid to recovery” on the 18th and 25th of November and 2nd of December.

The RLC provides a range of educational, practical and creative courses, for students with mental health difficulties and their family and friends who support them.

I will be teaching students how to start a WordPress.com blog of their own, that they can continue to use after the course has finished.

I will be teaching students how blogging can make them to feel better and improve their quality of life through:

  • Building online relationships and friendships.
  • Communicating with like-minded people.
  • Improving communication skills.
  • Building confidence and self-esteem.
  • Giving them something to focus on.
  • Giving them a sense of purpose and a reason to get up in the morning.

Plus loads more fantastic reasons.

I would love for my students to know how blogging has aided your recovery. Please leave a message in the comments section so that I can share your story with them.

Thanks in advance.

Stay positive.

Hi everyone

Fantastic news. I got Daisy’s test results yesterday, her lumps were fatty tissues, not cancer. I am over the moon with joy.
