I enjoyed being a guest on Good Morning Britain to discuss cuddle therapy and hugs in the workplace.
You may have also heard me being interviewed on BBC Radio 4, BBC Radio 5 and a selection of local BBC stations.
Cuddling reduces stress, anxiety, fear and depression, lowers blood pressure and the risk of heart disease, and boosts your immune system. It can help with insomnia and relieve physical pain. It can also be used to address issues with intimacy and boundaries.
You may choose to have talking therapy as well, talking about problems or fears, or anything that comes to mind. Or you may prefer a peaceful, quiet cuddle. You can see what you feel like doing on the day, as each session is guided by you.
I have a Foundation in Science Degree in Person-Centred Counselling and a diploma in cuddle therapy. I grew up in the US and am now settled in the UK. I'm warm, gentle, empathic, and direct. I adapt my sessions to each individual client.
Whether you would like to start slow and slowly build up to physical contact, or jump straight in with a close, tight hug, you can gain an array of health benefits from cuddle sessions- read more about the science behind touch.
I've had lots of lovely feedback from clients as well as interviews and articles written by journalists who had a session with me- a great way to get an idea of what a session is like.
Cuddle sessions are platonic- the type of cuddles you would have with a friend or family member. I'll ask you to sign a contract before we start. If you have any questions, please do get in touch.
