Therapist * Coach * Mentor * Clinical Sexologist

Creating a life worth loving.


I’m Cyndi Darnell, internationally renowned sex therapist and clinical sexologist. I offer specialized, trusted sex and relationship therapy and coaching in person in NYC or internationally via video. Originally from Australia, I bring over 15 years experience, knowledge and passion to my world-class practice – uniquely tailored to take you from where you are, to where you want to be! People enjoy my gentle, affirming yet no B.S. approach that makes clients feel safe, secure and understood. Nothing is too much or off-limits.

Life is about our relationships. To ourselves and to others. Personal, professional and intimate, our relationships are the foundation of our lives. Without the skills and tools to manage ourselves and our relationships, our connections feel empty and meaningless. I am passionate about helping people develop the skills they need to create rich, meaningful connections from the boardroom to the bedroom.

I hold 5 degrees, including 2 Master’s degrees from Australia’s most prestigious, accredited universities, plus over 10,000 hours clinical, supervised therapeutic experience navigating the rich terrain of modern sexuality, ecstatic pleasures and rewarding relationships.

Working with me is profound. People often marvel at how a few simple changes can transform their relationships almost overnight. I provide a life-changing yet reassuring, heart-opening and results-oriented process for people seeking effective outcomes.

I help you set attainable goals and offer you the tools, support and encouragement you need to thrive.

I offer assistance with:

Sessions are conducted face-to-face in FiDi – New York City and globally via video. I’m also available to travel. My multi-disciplinary approach blends clinical training with a dynamic personality to offer a warm, nurturing and engaging experience. We focus on how you want to feel and what you want to experience and what it will take to get there.

My client-centered style means I draw on ‘talk’ modalities but also somatics / body wisdom, art and movement therapies. My unique combination of human sexuality, clinical sexology and international 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 exploring more of what’s possible every day.
