SARAH ELIZABETH | Ethical Cuddles, Surrey
I’m Sarah. I practice ethical touch and cuddle therapy in accordance with the Cuddle Professionals International Diploma. I am a warm, open person who believes in the therapeutic power of touch, as has become especially evident in our recent COVID times.
If you are anxious, lonely, sad, bereaved, ill, depressed or just a little low; the hormones released during therapeutic touch can help you to better cope with life, and thrive. I provide a safe space to listen to how you are or what is going on in your life in a friendly way. We agree which form of touch suits you best, it might just be a resting of arms, rather than proper bear hug. You need to feel comfortable. Each session is bespoke to your needs. Please feel free to contact me for further information.
MEL|Your Embrace Space, Hampshire
Hello, I’m Mel. Due to my affectionate, maternal nature and my interest in mental health, the healing power of touch and platonic intimacy, I decided to become a Cuddle Therapy professional. I have completed courses in mental health and counselling skills and I have a positive outlook on life with a love of meeting new people. Touch is a basic human need and unfortunately some of us, for whatever reason, just don’t get enough of it. We all want to feel like we belong but we don’t want to diminish authentic selves in order to “fit in”. I can offer you platonic touch sessions in a safe space, no matter your gender, race, shape, size, sexual orientation or mobility issues. I want to provide an empathetic ear for you to share your worries without judgement, whilst receiving 100% of my attention, affection, compassion and reassuring physical contact. All while practicing consent and respecting personal boundaries. Everyone deserves to be held, nurtured and appreciated for who they truly are. The mental and physical health benefits of which are innumerable. If you’re interested or have questions please don’t hesitate to contact me.

Everyone deserves affection, touch and acceptance, and for me there are no exceptions for that. I offer a safe space for you to be you, in your most authentic and comfortable way. Join me and dive into an experience, which will leave you feeling deeply relaxed and more at peace than you’ve ever been

PETRA | Harmony Cuddles, London
Originally from the Czech Republic, I am trained and certified member of Cuddle Professionals International. I’ve always been a “hugger” and all my life I’ve been working with people, in community or in hospital. I am trained as a general nurse and have NVQ2 in health and social care in the UK. I am a positive and kind person who loves meeting new people. I am a great listener and I can offer you support, understanding, a shoulder to cry if needed or we can laugh and joke or just enjoy each other’s company. My goal is for you to leave the session with a smile on your face, feeling relaxed, loved and connected. My mission is to make this world a better place by sharing my unconditional love via loving, nurturing touch.
Ethical Touch, Scotland
I am based in Glasgow and work through the central belt. I am a mother and a grandmother (Nana) with an understanding of the healing and beneficial powers of cuddling. I have always been a tactile person and like walking in the woods listening to birdsong. I have completed a degree in Integrated Health and Social Care and am also a CPI certified professional cuddler (CPI Diploma). The health and wellbeing benefits that the human touch can offer is something I can assist with as part of my cuddle therapy. I am an empathic person with a love of animals and nature. Health and wellbeing are improved by enjoying human interaction in a relaxing setting. So, come along, unwind, let me help uplift and inspire you!
ALCHEMYRA | London & Dover
Mirela promises to provide you with a space where you are you, and this you is fully accepted, heard and seen by her. She actively practices authenticity, self-love and fierce boundaries in her own personal life.
Cuddling is an extra-ordinal experience to enjoy safe, consensual touch in, and to feel surprisingly home surrounded by someone else’s energy. Mirela also works as a Spinal Carer, and is also a core team member of Touch Project in London where she works alongside other therapist to spread awareness of the importance of connection.
RAWZE | Powered by Touch, London
Hi, I am Rawzé. I have been immersed in the healing arts for the past 10 years. As an intuitive holistic therapist I dedicate my life's work to self- realisation through breath-work, ecstatic dancing, sound healing, plant-based health coaching, meditation and Yoga. I am an empathic person with a love of animals and nature. I am also a friend and a sister to many. I am excited to be able to offer unconditional love and nurturing platonic feminine energy in the context of professional cuddling. My desire in offering this work is to provide connection, affection, acceptance, a shoulder to lean on, a hand to hold, touch, understanding a listening ear, a profound safe and compassionate space, mindful breathing or maybe just a laugh, and to explore my clients needs, wants and boundaries within a platonic consensual touch.
POPPY | Healing Hugs, Hampshire
Hi I'm Poppy and I’m the founder of Healing Hugs. I am a professional Cuddle Practitioner and connection enthusiast, trained, certified and insured by Cuddle Professionals International with a degree in psychology and a background in health & wellbeing. I am based in the beautiful and historic town of Winchester in Hampshire, United Kingdom. I provide a holistic therapeutic experience through a combination of warm social communication, authentic connection, and therapeutic, non-sexual, touch. I became a professional cuddler because I understand the innate need people have for close human contact, to be listened to without judgment, and to experience emotional intimacy. Unfortunately, not many of us receive enough of this organically - that's where a professional cuddler comes in. Everyone deserves affection, touch and acceptance, and I want to offer you a safe space to indulge in the positive benefits that touch and a kind listening ear can provide. If you need a positive, supportive, and caring Cuddle Practitioner, please don’t hesitate to reach out and book a session with me. I look forward to meeting you!

TANIA | Cuddle Therapy, London
As a Spanish-born I grew up in a very rooted culture of hugs and kisses. This made me realise how much difference platonic touch makes to someone’s lives. I trained to be a cuddle therapist to help people to feel better with themselves and help them to overcome anxiety, solitude, stress and anything they struggle with. I offer in my practice mindful breathing, counselling and all the support and kindness you need.
NANCY | This Moment Matters, Yorkshire and Greater Manchester
Compassionate, platonic touch has always been an important part of my life, though there have been periods where that has seriously been lacking. I have also experienced the profound effect that a sincere and nurturing hug can have on a person - it can be truly transformational. As well as being a Cuddle Therapist I'm also a Meditation and Laughter Yoga Teacher, and an End of Life Doula. I have a background in hospice work which highlighted the immense need of the physical intimacy of a hand-hold and a hug. It's a wonderful way of showing someone that they are not alone - that they matter. Both compassionate, platonic touch and laughter bring a deep sense of healing and connection. Whether you prefer platonic touch or a cuddle with chatter or in quiet contemplation is purely a personal choice. Each and every session is tailored to your specific needs.
