Our program is one of the most detail oriented available, and we teach our cuddlers a variety of different cuddle poses and customization options, self care, avoiding codependency, security measures, how to conduct consultations, and so much more! Our membership includes access to an online learning portal with: support discussions, video modules, and continuing education to ensure you are always up to date with the newest training available.
Certified Cuddlers does not take a cut of the money from sessions like many other companies do. Our cuddlers sign an oath to ensure we are all following the same rules.
Our program focuses on allowing you and the client to decide who guides the session. We teach you everything you need to know to guide your sessions or to be comfortable allowing the client to guide. We require each Certified Cuddler to complete five training consultations and sessions with people they trust to ensure comfort and confidence in the role of Certified Cuddler, and we will teach you the in’s and out’s of what to watch out for in cuddle poses to keep our clients in appropriate mindsets.
