Connection during the covid-19 pandemic

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.

 

So, perhaps, you’re wondering how Touch and Cuddle Therapy can support you in a time when we can’t be physically close?

Here are some other ways that I might just help support you:

  1. I am offering virtual cuddle 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 20 minutes up to an hour dependant on your needs.
  2. 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 anothers heart and simply appreciate that beautiful, united moment. Some questions you might want answering: Can I blink?
    Of course! It’s not a staring competition.
    Can I look away?
    Yes, anytime you feel the need to avert your gaze you are welcome to do so.
    What if I burst out laughing or cry?
    Whatever arises for you is fine. We can support each other just by being present with each other. No words necessary.
    How long will we eye hug for?
    For as long as we are comfortable to do so whether that’s 2 seconds, 2 minutes or 20 minutes.
    The only thing I would suggest is that you approach it with no expectations. Be open to whatever the experience is.
    And, if you’re into meditation, it’s a beautiful form of meditation too.
  3.  I can guide you through a beautiful  exercise in self-soothing. This exercise teaches you how to use touch and reconnect with your own body.

Of course, nothing will beat that physical experience but I can hold you in other ways.

The fee for this new way of working is simple – Pay from Your Heart. I will give you a link when you book for paypal or bank transfer and you are welcome to pay before or after the session. I’ve set it up this way deliberately as I know many may be struggling financially currently as well as  mentally and emotionally.

Because this current way of working doesn’t require us to meet in- person I’ve suspended the need for ID checks.

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-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.
