Life and Soul Inc

Therapist – Coach – Mentor

Creating a life worth loving.


I’m Cyndi Darnell, originally one of Australia’s leading, trusted sex & relationship therapists, now in New York City. I bring over 15 years experience, knowledge and passion to my therapy and coaching practice – uniquely tailored to take you from where you are, to where you want to be! I specialize in human relationships, intimacy, sexuality and life coaching.

I believe life is, first and foremost, about our relationships. To ourselves and to others. Personal, professional and intimate, our relationships determine the quality of our lives. Without the skills and tools to manage ourselves and our relationships, our lives feel empty and meaningless. I am passionate about helping people develop the transformational skills they need to create rich, meaningful connections from the boardroom to the bedroom.

As a life coach, I help you set attainable goals and offer you the support and encouragement you need to thrive personally and professionally. As a clinical sexologist and qualified therapist, I offer you the space and guidance to reflect on where you have been and where you want to go, along with tools to ignite your passion for yourself, your relationships and the most important people in your life.

I offer assistance with:

I offer face-to-face sessions in New York City and globally via video. My multi-disciplinary approach blends clinical training with a dynamic personality to offer a warm, nurturing and engaging therapeutic experience. From unpacking family history, trauma, depression & anxiety to partnerships, self-esteem, body image, grief or any of life’s other complications, I’m with you every step of the way. 

My client-centered style means I draw on ‘talk’ therapies but also somatics / body wisdom, art and movement therapies. My unique combination of human sexuality and psychotherapy training allows me to partner personal relationships with well-being and intimacy skills that deeply change people’s lives.

My clients come from all walks of life, but with a shared intention of creating meaningful relationships and exploring more of what’s possible every day.
