"Having avoided close relationships due to trust issues, cuddle therapy was my attempt at a temporary substitute for platonic physical human contact. I wasn't expecting the internal emotional release that occurred during the session as I experienced a non harmful form of intimacy that turned my self protecting view on its head. Mel is kind and warm, yet gently assertive, building trust while leading the way to healing platonic touch. A skilled professional with a truly nurturing personality." - S.
"I was extremely nervous about doing this but felt it may be of benefit with my current situation. Right from the initial zoom call Mel put me at ease and I was looking forward to our first session even though still nervous. When I walked in, Mel goes through some exercises about boundaries for each other which puts you totally at ease, then the actual session itself was just AMAZING! We went through so much I could feel the weight lifting off my shoulders within minutes. There was so much involved from gentle touch to long firm hugs that your body and mind feel immediately elated. I would highly recommend this to everyone. You don't realise how much you're missing in life until you have one of these sessions. I can't wait to go back for my second one! :)" - C.
"You take the benefits away with you. A welcomed new smile on my face has appeared, a gap between mind and heart has been bridged. The whole experience from consultation to end of session has been professionally delivered with care and unconditional empathy. I have no doubt I will be back for another session, I have no doubt this therapy is what I needed. Melissa's maternal warmth dissolves any nervous feeling, replacing it with a homely embrace. Melissa understands the value of her service and is committed to fulfilling that value." - A
"Just wanted to say a massive thank you. You truly don't know how good it felt. Things were far better than I could have ever imagined although nervous at first, you made me feel calm and relaxed so well, then everything just felt so natural. Seriously I could have stayed all day it felt so good. I can't believe the time went so quick." - C.

"Mel amazed me with her great service I didn't expect that, I was feeling down then suddenly full of joy and happiness such as I was in darkness then came into lights, waw it was a miracle. She has big love and smooth silky skin, she squeezes me tightly which is relief my pains and forget all my worries sadnesses you can ask her anything as long as it's platonic. She's very open minded don't be shy. She's wonderful person and a carer. Big thanks and greetings to Mel." - Ali
