About:

I work in education and also run my own ethical fashion label. I come from working in events and still do so occasionally. I like to keep myself busy, so being a cuddle therapist is the perfect counter balance for my busy lifestyle. I enjoy sharing the gift of touch with my clients, as it was quite the revelation when I discovered how relaxing it actually is! It's a beautiful opportunity to unwind, forget about all the worries in the world, and connect with another human being in a professional, but also personal way.

"With her warm, friendly demeanour and soothing voice, Miriam excels at putting me at ease. Our cuddle sessions feel perfectly natural and are a sensual experience that leaves me feeling rejuvenated. I really look forward to my cuddle therapy sessions with Miriam." - Peter, Artist

Location:

London therapy studio at 'Brighter Spaces' in 2A Prebend Street, Islington, N1 8PT.

About:

Ever since I could remember I have always been very passionate and curious about people and their stories, psychology, mental health and discovering different practical tools in life that would help us all to live in harmony. I have often found that the simplest things, our core needs, such as caring touch from another human being, undivided attention, a listening ear, empathy, compassion and essentially, supporting each other in our life journeys can ease the progress towards holistic wellbeing. Cuddle therapy is a really beautiful experience that can help to re-connect with oneself and others or just maintain a happy balanced lifestyle.

“I recently had a session with Kristiina. She was amazing! She is a very warm soul! It was my first Cuddle Therapy session, so I wasn’t entirely sure what to expect but she put me totally at ease. Since the appointment, I have felt more relaxed, I have been sleeping better and I have given myself more self-care. Thank you so much Kristiina!” - Lyn

About:

I’m a licensed massage therapist and I feel that it’s my mission to help people relieve their physical and emotional stress through massage and integrated bodywork.

The art of healing is a great passion of mine and I also look forward to delivering cuddle therapy sessions, which is the start of an amazing new experience for me.

"My session was an absolute delight. I was a little anxious as this sort of thing was very much out of my comfort zone, but Vanessa made me feel at ease straight away. Vanessa was so comforting, I felt like we had been friends for years. There was no need for a mask, I could truly be myself with Vanessa. 5 stars is an understatement. I definitely will be booking with Vanessa again sometime in the near future. Thank you Nordic Cuddle and thank you Vanessa." - Joshua

About:

I’m a trained Cuddle Therapist, and my goal is to make you feel as relaxed as possible no matter where you are in life.

I will help you remember the love we all possess, and how we can share this back comfortably with others.

“I’m almost speechless in describing the pure non-judgemental compassion and love that exudes from Douglas. This was my first voyage into cuddle therapy and the rewards were profound… The beauty of Douglas was his ability to allow your true emotions to run the gambit ultimately only to have them finally reside within the arms of a sensual healer. I would not hesitate to recommend Douglas to anyone in need of human touch and a safe harbour from the stress and judgements of a fearful world. 10 out 10!” - Jeff

About:

I’m a trained cuddle therapist and am currently training to become a qualified massage therapist. I’ve always had a protective nature and a deep desire to help others.

Location:

I'm based in North London, and practice from a studio in Islington.

About:

I have always been interested in the way we communicate, so I studied languages and continue learning to this day. For me touch is like a natural language, another way to communicate with others and I truly believe in the positive benefits it has on us. In my day job, I'm a teacher in a special needs school. I also practice and teach yoga, I meditate and try to live the most conscious life I can. I believe everyone deserves an abundance of nurturing touch and connection in life.  A cuddle session with me provides an opportunity to fulfil that need in a safe and warm environment free of judgment.

“I had a cuddle session with Johnny yesterday. My overriding feeling was how relaxed and comfortable I felt in his presence. He has a very kind energy and I instantly knew he was the right practitioner for my needs. Johnny listened to what I was hoping to get from our session and that was achieved. Our energies certainly clicked and I haven’t felt quite so zen’d out probably ever. I slept so well that night. I look forward to booking another session and couldn’t recommend Johnny highly enough. Namaste.” - Mark, 40.

JOHNNY

By booking a session with a cuddle practitioner, you confirm that you’ve read and agree to abide by our code of conduct and client service agreement.

Location:

Home Visits in London (Zone 1-6)

About:

I am a final-year history student and current LGBTQIA+ Officer at SOAS, University of London. I was first introduced to Cuddle Therapy when I met Rebekka at a speaking event, where I discussed how I overcame my mental health issues, particularly loneliness and depression. Rebekka commended my ability to be open with my experiences and create an honest dialogue with the audience. For this reason, she knew that I would be able to connect with clients and have a positive impact on their lives. Therefore, a session with me can go beyond just cuddling, and towards an honest discussion about the issues you are facing, in a safe, non-judgemental and comfortable environment. Although, there would be no pressure to share anything and I have been told I give pretty great hugs, so just cuddling would be completely fine too.

About:

When I first heard about cuddle therapy in 2017, I knew I’d be making my first authentic move towards a new life and career. A one hour cuddle session will very quickly create a sense of union between the practitioner and the client through breathing rhythms and physical contact. Cuddle therapy for me is a channel through which I enjoy expressing myself and also keeps me grounded as touch benefits both the giver and receiver. My joy comes from facilitating and connecting with other people through this gentle form of healing.

 

“She is very genuine, super friendly and a professional cuddler. She is very easy to talk to and is extremely passionate about what she does. I have always felt very relaxed after the numerous cuddling sessions I have had. It’s a nice feeling to be able to have someone like her to be actually willing to hold me without judging. With her…the session times are never enough ;-) Thank you!” – Jo

Receiving touch is a powerful act that shapes our heart and our soul.

A cuddle session includes caring touch and the chance to speak about what’s on your mind, which can be a profoundly deep and nurturing experience.

Take a break from your busy everyday life to feel rested and rejuvenated, ready to return into the world anew.
