Meg Callander provides sexuality coaching for adults and young people. She is a sexologist and has a versatile and multidisciplinary practice. Drawing on her professional training in sexology, health promotion, public health, tantra and youth work, Meg offers well-rounded support, education and practical tools that can be tailored to your individual needs.
Determined to create an open and positive dialogue about sexuality, Meg creates a safe and confidential space so you can talk openly about your desires or challenges and ask as many questions as you like! During her sessions, she combines talk-based sexuality coaching with comprehensive sexuality education using a range of educational props, diagrams and resources.
Meg’s job is to be your personal sexual health and wellness resource, and the open-minded friend you never had. Her goal is for you to walk out of your coaching session feeling seen, heard, and in control of your sexuality.
Wanting more fulfilling and satisfying sexual experiences and intimacy is not a selfish act, it’s actually a really clever move! Having a healthy sexuality is critical to our self-actualisation and overall health and wellbeing.
Sexuality coaching gives you the opportunity to have meaningful discussions with a sexologist about all aspects of your sexuality, not just the physical parts. By exploring the emotional, mental and spiritual aspects of your sexuality, you will be supported to identify any self-limiting beliefs, fears or insecurities that might be holding you back from achieving your sexual goals.
You already have the ability to change, adapt and adjust your current situation, you just need the right support and some accurate education! Sexuality coaching will provide you with new knowledge, skills and options so you gain new perspectives and confidence to accept and embrace your sexuality.
Sexuality coaching for adults
Without access to sex-positive support and ongoing sexuality education, we can develop unhelpful sexual behaviour patterns, low sexual self-esteem, and feel disconnected from ourselves and our sexual partners.
Sexuality coaching is a collaborative, empowering and dynamic process that combines some or all of the following elements:
- Identifying and overcoming negative self-talk, self-limiting beliefs and attitudes
- Sexual goal setting and action planning
- Comprehensive sexuality education and information
- Behavioural training
- Resources and referrals.
Some of the areas you can explore with Meg include increasing intimacy in your relationships, receiving and giving sexual pleasure, sex toys and pleasure products, sexual function, sexual and reproductive health, and sexual communication and consent.
Sexuality coaching for young people
Young people are more likely to engage in sex education when they are taught by a trusted ‘sex-positive’ adult rather than a school teacher or parent (1).
As a qualified youth worker with experiences working in Melbourne’s youth homelessness, family violence and drug and alcohol sectors, Meg understands the challenges facing many young people when it comes to safely navigating sex and relationships.
Meg provides confidential sexuality coaching sessions for young people aged 12-25 years to safely explore their sexuality and learn more about a range of topics including puberty, sexual and gender diversity, respectful relationships, pornography, pleasure, contraception, menstruation, and consent.

Sexuality coaching and education for parents
Meg understands that many parents or carers can feel overwhelmed and anxious when it comes to talking to kids about sex and sexuality, especially if they never received good sexuality education themselves!
To ensure young people don’t go without an open, positive and ongoing dialogue with their parents about sexuality, Meg provides sexuality coaching for parents and carers. She is knowledgeable about adolescent sexual health and sexuality and sex-positive parenting strategies and will help you deal with any fears or concerns preventing you from having ‘the talk’.
You will gain the knowledge, confidence and skills to be a positive role model for your children, and support to develop realistic strategies that suit your family’s situation.
