My initial reason for signing up to do the Professional Dominatrix course were mostly to do with my writing. I’d published a BDSM novel before, but never really explored the practical or went in-depth with the psychology, and as I had started doing more femdom short stories, I wanted to be more descriptive and knowledgeable. Alongside this, I was also interested in learning more about being a Domme to explore that side in a d/s relationship behind closed doors (submissive men definitely make the best partners!).
Having now done the eight modules from the Beginner course, and the first four modules of the Advanced course that I was interested in, I’ve gained more than I thought I would out of the two months that I studied with Governess Elizabeth (once a week). Her own studies into the psychology of BDSM, particularly chastity, ensured that Elizabeth is probably the best person to learn from in London – whether you want to explore female domination fantasies as a couple, or if you are thinking of going professional. Understanding what makes a submissive tick really is the key to being successful as a Dominatrix. The course has been designed to be done as individual modules that interest you, or can be used to build each week as your confidence grows. Electrics was one of the modules I’d been dubious about, but it quickly became one of my favourites.
All the way through the course, Governess Elizabeth and Jonas (the school model) provided feedback on not only practical technique, but also on how to set up a business. While I’m not going to go Pro-Domme full-time due to other work commitments and my writing, I definitely feel better equipped to make an informed decision and able to make a success of it if I do. My writing has definitely improved, and I’ve loads of short story ideas to publish and also to engage with the right readership via the social media channels that Elizabeth and Jonas introduced me to.
An addition, and unexpected, benefit was that going through the course has made me more assertive in my everyday working life, better able to communicate and control (particularly the men!), but also to put a value on my time. This is even more so in my personal life. I’m now likely to say to a man who is intent on wasting my time for just one thing, ‘I’ll invoice you at the going rate!!’
The investment in the course modules will definitely be worthwhile, whether it’s as a way of adding more intimacy to your relationship, or giving you the skills, knowledge and important safety information, to build up a Dominatrix business with repeat clientele and good reviews.

If you've ever been curious about what it's like to be a dominatrix, whether due to a natural preference, or something you'd like to explore with your playmate, then the Dominatrix School is for you. This was the position I was in a few weeks ago. Looking to up my game in the bedroom, I was excited to see that not only did the School cater for the curious and kinky, but also offered training to become a professional dominatrix, to which I thought "why not!?'
At the initial consultation with Governess Elizabeth, who was friendly and professional, I was even more sure of the decision to embark on this adventure. The chamber in which you work (which I affectionately called the naughty room) is in a great central London location, clean, organised and well equipped. I excitedly completed the course within two weeks and learnt the basics of becoming a dominatrix, including those all important psychological and health and safety aspects.
Practicing on Jonas was great fun, as well as informative, with feedback givenat all stages throughout. Finding out that we all liked the same kind of music and having it play in the background during lessons added to the enjoyment of the whole experience. And the final session with Governess Elizabeth's sub was very realistic. The School also provides support on setting yourself up as a professional dominatrix...the stage that I, Lady Lucinda, is at right now. Thanks to the Dominatrix School I'm looking forward to putting my new skills into practice and seeing what unfolds....watch this space....
"I found the London Dominatrix School by searching for 'learn to be a Dominatrix' on Google. I wanted to train to be a Dominatrix but didn't know how to - I didn't know anyone who was a Dominatrix or how to get started and I didn't want to hurt or embarrass myself or anyone else! When I found the website, I was so relieved! Arranging the training was quick and easy and I couldn't wait to get started. I was worried that a scary, strict woman would meet me at the door and bark orders at me, but Governess Elizabeth is warm, kind, clever and gracious. I felt she really listened to me and matched the lessons to my interests. I found getting feedback from her and the school model was so useful - it gave me confidence to know I could push myself more. For anyone looking to become a professional Dominatrix, the client and business advice she and her school model provide are invaluable. Any question, they can answer for you. It makes what would be a confusing and anxiety-provoking experience much easier. Thank you to everyone at the London Dominatrix School for introducing me to a new world that I absolutely adore and giving me the chance to start a fun, interesting and exciting new career. No more Monday morning commute for me!"
"E follows a lot of kinky Twitter accounts and one day spotted a picture from the London Dominatrix School retweeted on one of them. We've been experimenting with S tying him up and blindfolding him but wanted to try something more. We didn't want to do a class with other people or jump into a fetish night unprepared so private lessons seemed perfect. It's so exciting, arriving at the station, walking along and knowing in a few seconds you'll be in a real dungeon! Her dungeon is beautiful, big, clean and with a lot of equipment. In the consultation we chose a few lessons we were interested in - bondage, corporal punishment, tie and tease - and we got straight down to it. We learnt all the practical points and safety, but what we remember most is what we learnt about each other - about fetishes we fantasised about, new things we wanted to try, pain tolerance. With Governess Elizabeth's support, We've been exploring each other, new kinks and we're even attending out first play party soon!"
"I actually met Governess Elizabeth through a friend. I've been training with her for some time now. The lessons have been great - relaxed and informative and fun. I found caning most difficult - she was very patient! (and so was the school model!) She carefully gave instructions, showed me how to do it and then I did it. She saw where I was going wrong and gave me advice. I never felt rushed or anxious or stupid - she reassured me and we went at a pace that was right for me. I like learning the psychology behind it too - it's interesting and surprising. She gave me a reading list and some homework (caning) and I've really enjoyed learning. I like that you can rent her dungeon and sub to practice with - she's also around if you'd like advice about what you're doing. I like that she really loves what she does - it made me enthusiastic about it and I'm always excited about my lessons. Thank you Governess!"
"What started off as a joke between me and my girlfriend ended up with us turning up at Governess Elizabeth's door anxious to explore kink (and report back to our mates!). We've tied each other up before and played with toys but didn't know where to go from there. We searched a bit online and decided to phone the London Dominatrix School to learn more about the kinky couples course. We weren't too sure what we wanted to explore so we decided on a lesson of a couple of hours so we could discuss our fantasies and take it from there. We were a bit nervous, but Governess Elizabeth assured us on the phone that same-sex couples are more than welcome and we could take the lesson in whatever direction our fantasies went.
Governess Elizabeth welcomed us at the door, offered us some drinks and we were soon chatting about our fantasies, desires, sexuality as if we'd known each other for years. We learnt a lot about each other too. We moved into playing with what we learnt was sensory deprivation, tease and denial and, after realising we enjoy switching, how to use D/s and switching in and out of the bedroom, building anticipation. She gave us lots of ideas and encouraged us to be creative.
Governess Elizabeth started us on our journey into kink and, a few months on, we're learning and exploring more and more each day."
"I've had a couple of lessons at the London Dominatrix School with my husband. We didn't know where to start so told Governess Elizabeth that we were beginners and asked her to guide us. Our first lesson was an exploration of why and how we were interested in kink, discovering what it meant to us, what interested us about it. We had a look and play with some of the toys, dildos, floggers, rope to see what most excited us. I really wanted to do some strap on play and B was pretty happy about this too so our first lesson was all about anal and strap ons. Governess Elizabeth handled this really well - she was both professional and relaxed and friendly - she didn't make something so intimate awkward or intimidating. She gave us tips and techniques and introduced us to the variety of anal toys we might consider once we're more advanced.
It's sometimes difficult to say what you'd like to explore with your partner and to know how to do it and what to buy for it. With Governess Elizabeth we could be open and she had everything we needed to play and learn and have fun doing it. She was sensitive, encouraging and made the lesson fun. We came away thinking, why did we wait so long to try it out?"
