Dr. Leyla Gulcur

About Me

My name is Leyla Gulcur. I’m a psychologist by training but I also wear many other hats: university instructor, sexuality educator, qigong teacher — and much more.


A long-time practitioner of tai chi, bagua and meditation, I have combined my experience and background in Western psychology, Chinese medicine, Tantra and Taoist energy arts to create a pleasure-based coaching practice.


My program is designed specifically to help individuals and couples craft conscious ways of relating with each other through the enhancement of communication skills, emotional vitality and sexual polarity.

What to Expect

The Practical Pleasure Program

Length and Frequency of Sessions

Sessions are undertaken once every 1 or 2 weeks, depending on your needs and desired time commitment. Sessions are done online via secure video and can be undertaken in packages ranging from 8-16 sessions.

During the first few sessions I will do a thorough assessment of your relationship and sexual history and patterns, attachment style and experiences.


Working together, we will identify your current needs and discuss some quick solutions for you to try out as soon as you leave the first session.

Subsequent sessions will encompass coaching, psycho-education and experiential exercises that will identify unproductive patterns of communication, which you will replace with powerful methods to communicate effectively with your partner.


I will also show you practices to increase your somatic awareness of sexual and emotional patterns that prevent you from connecting more deeply to a partner, which you will release to make room for more emotional vitality and sexual polarity.

During our whole time together, I will give you weekly or bi-weekly "play practices" to try out at home with yourself or with a partner and we will debrief and discuss what worked and what needs to be tweaked during the next session.

Toolkit of Pleasure Practices

At the end of each session I will give you a “toolkit” of practices to boost daily pleasure.


Moving forward, I will continue to provide you with an individually tailored set of daily practices that you can do at home or elsewhere, any time.

My goal is to have you live your life guided by the wisdom of your desires — and to create relationships that enhance mutual growth, self-expansion and passion!
