“In my work, I see so many people feeling isolated because of the pandemic as well as those who are grieving and need physical comfort.

“I start by playing soothing music, holding hands, and I encourage deep breathing.

“We cuddle in many positions like standing up and spooning. Boundaries are always discussed before we start.”

Kristiina, in Stratford, East Londonemphasizes that her visiting clients – mostly men and mostly between the ages of 30 and 40 – understand that “cuddle is a form of pure touch therapy”.
