Discover & Explore The Power of Hugs
There are many fall-outs from this current pandemic. The obvious isolation that we’re having to maintain is having a knock-on effect with our mental health and further increasing feelings of loneliness and some front-line workers are experiencing trauma. I’m finding an increasing number of people contacting me for support through connection so I’ve been exploring ways to try to meet your needs.
In-person Compassionate Touch and Cuddle Therapy is currently on pause.
As I tentatively move forward to opening up to offer in-person compassionate touch and cuddle services once more please carefully read the Covid Policy here:
I have some wonderful ways to support you remotely until we can be physically close again:
- I am offering online compassionate touch and connection sessions via video-link (the camera can be switched off during the main part of the session if you feel self-conscious). As a trained meditation teacher the session will run as a visualisation. These sessions will run for 30 minutes up to an hour dependant on your needs.
- We can also connect in a way that is deeper than words can fulfil with an online eye gazing hug. The first few seconds can sometimes feel the most awkward but as the seconds tick by it’s easier to connect with another’s heart and simply appreciate that beautiful, united moment. And, if you’re into meditation, it’s a beautiful form of meditation too.
- I can guide you through beautiful exercises in self-comforting. These exercises teach you how to use touch to reconnect with your own body.
Of course, nothing will beat that physical experience but I can hold you in other ways.
As with all of my sessions you are welcome to stop the session at any time as am I if I feel things are not working well for us.
This is a wonderful way to feel nourished and supported at a time when you may be feeling very vulnerable.
And, if none of these options appeal to you I’m also available for online one to one meditations. We can discuss what your meditation needs are and start from there.
I’m still here for you so do reach out if you need me.

In the Media
Early in 2020 I was part of a recent interview on BBC Radio Scotland discussing the importance of touch for the Sunday Morning show with presenter Connie McLaughlin and Psychologist Dr Suzanne Zeedyk.
It is time for the human race to reconnect with each other in-person, face to face, hand to hand, smile to smile, chuckle to chuckle. Don’t just put down your gadgets when you’re with someone – switch them off. Give the person you are with your undivided attention. Your time and presence is one of the greatest gifts of all.
