Kendra Holliday, Personal Consultant and Sexuality Expert
Q: Who is Kendra Holliday?
A: In the spirit of being open and honest, my life is an open book and can be viewed at my website, The Beautiful Kind. I believe that as long as you take care of your obligations and duties, you can have as much fun as you want, as long as you’re not hurting others. In other words, I promote responsible hedonism and don’t have time for guilt or shame. I’m also one of the Co-Founders of Sex Positive St. Louis, a community resource and safe environment for people in the St. Louis metro area who are interested in human sexuality.
I’ve been through a lot in my life, but strongly believe in moving forward and turning negatives into positives. I am happy to answer any questions about me that you might have.
Q: Why choose Personal Consulting over Professional Licensed Therapy?
A: I’ve had many clients tell me they have achieved bigger breakthroughs meeting with me once or twice than they’ve had after spending months or years working with their professional therapist. Traditional therapy certainly has its place, but is not always the most effective way to address problems.
Social critic Barbara Ehrenreich offers an interesting take: “What therapy aims to achieve is not health, but compliance to social norms.”
I encourage people to think outside the cage. So many people put themselves in self-imposed cages – at work, at home – then feel miserable and end up on anti-depressants.
I offer a different approach. I look past social norms and dig deeper into our human nature. Using my connections and knowledge, I offer tools and resources to examine your unique situation. I won’t necessarily solve your problems, but I will offer you the keys to step outside the cage you’ve found yourself in. It’s up to you to decide how far you want to go with your self-actualization. Our societal constraints are not conducive to self-actualization, because so many people can’t be open and honest about who they really are.
We all have a choice to be honest with ourselves. It takes courage. I am here to help.
Q: As a Personal Consultant, where did you learn about life and sexuality?
A: I have very little formal training or education as a sex consultant. All of the information and ideas I share with other people are based on being self-taught and 25 years of personal experience. That doesn’t mean I’m declaring, “Hey I’m sexually active, therefore I’m an expert.” If I’m curious about a fetish or lifestyle, I jump in and get firsthand experience. My blog is my vita. Others are able to learn from my experiences, both good and bad. I’m happy to share my personal stories and resources if it can save others time and grief. I’ve worked hard and had to be courageous to get to where I am. Everyone deserves to be happy and accepted for who they are.
The key to happiness and health? Love, acceptance and respect.
