2. Listing on the Nordic Cuddle Website
Upon completing and passing both the theory and practical elements of the course, Nordic Cuddle will consider your suitability for listing as a practitioner (London-based only). Please note that completion of the course doesn’t guarantee a listing on the platform. Contact us for the current fees and charges applicable. A valid DBS check and insurance will be required at this point.
3. Ongoing Support & Training
Nordic Cuddle has built a cuddle therapy support forum for our practitioners. In addition, we also run in-person refresher training sessions for our existing practitioners to share ongoing best practice.
Nordic Cuddle’s dual-accredited course is comprised of theory and practical elements, and each trainee must complete and pass evaluations for each element. The course can be studied at your own pace and more information is available here. After completing the course, we’ll consider your suitability for listing as a practitioner. Please note that you’ll be required to provide a DBS check, before this takes place. A Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) check is a way to identify whether someone holds a criminal record, which therapists obtain for their client’s peace of mind, and can be purchased here.
