More Than One Way To Hold Someone

When trying to get to grips with the practical issues of offering my services as a touch and cuddle therapist online what is evident is that, during an in-person session, I’m not just embracing clients in the physical sense but also emotionally, socially, psychologically and spiritually too.
This work requires me to “turn towards” suffering and to be absolutely present in body and mind.
This enables clients to feel safe, to be authentic with their own emotions, to prioritise their emotions and that need for connection and presence that isn’t being met.
And to feel accepted just as they are.
It’s an opportunity for them to slow down and experience a deeper moment – a moment where no-one is trying to heal them, fix them, change them.
It seems that as I bear witness to what is there for them in that moment it allows them to bear witness to themselves.

I can still do this for you from a distance. It is not the same as the closeness experienced in-person. But nothing right now is quite the same as it was. 

There is more than one way to hold someone…….
