Tender Touch is a connection coaching practice, founded by touch therapy practitioner and coach, Kirsten Jense.
Positive touch is one of our first necessities as a human being, from birth to the moment we leave this earth. It brings us emotionally and physically in balance and can help with various things as further indicated on this website. Unfortunately, as people, we have sometimes lost part of this contact because of the fast, demanding and digital world we live in. Or because of the personal problems and traumas we have experienced. Connection coaching through touch therapy and cuddle sessions within a safe and secure container is a way of coaching and therapy that has been received very positively in countries such as America and England for a number of years and is growing enormously. The effects of this method of coaching are experienced as very effective and healing.
Introducing Kirsten Jense
Through my work experience within mental health care and my various educations and trainings in, among other things, coaching people with various problems and questions, coaching relatives of people with psychological problems and / or addiction, Ayurvedic massage and multiple trainings to become a professional touch therapy practitioner and deep listener via Cuddlist.com America, I am very experienced in working with people and offering coaching and support in different ways and areas.
As a result of several negative and traumatic experiences in my youth, I lost the connection with myself at a young age, so I quickly developed a negative self-image. What later in my life developed into depression, isolation from others and an eating disorder. Fortunately a few years ago I was able to make a good start with reconnecting with myself, which helped me with self-acceptance and healing, both physically and emotionally. Bodywork, therapy and yoga have helped me a lot to balance my thinking and my feelings. "The issues are in the tissues" such as the wise American experience expert and yogi Nicky Myers likes to say. This means as much as emotional struggles and trauma literally gets stuck in your body and therefore also need a body-oriented approach to be released. I personally agree with that. In my work experience and within my personal life I have repeatedly seen that body-oriented forms of therapy, coaching, and self-development certainly contribute to the speed and depth of someone's personal growth and healing.
The mission of Tender Touch is to help people by offering body-oriented coaching and the possibility to receive what he or she needs. Because I personally have experienced what impact it can have on your life if you lose connection with yourself and / or others and what power it gives to regain it again. I call my way of working connection coaching. The request for help you can ask for at tender Touch can vary from just wanting to relax & de-stress, relieving a feeling of loneliness or recharging your oxytocin & dopamine levels; To the more therapeutic work aimed at healing trauma, relieving depression, learning to indicate boundaries and experiencing free choice again.
My method is open and curious, practical and intuitive. At Tender Touch you receive the attention and care you need to recharge and find the power to take the right / desired steps in your life. The power and energy to be able to connect more with yourself and with others.
Introducing Mimi the cuddlecat...
This is my super sweet cuddle and therapy cat, Mr. Miyagi, nickname Mimi.
As a therapy cat, Mimi is very happy to help with the sessions. Are you curious about Mimi, read more about him in this blog.
Of course, not everyone likes having a cat present at his or her session, or maybe you are allergic to animals.
This is no problem of course. If this is indicated in advance, I will make sure that Mimi will play outside during the session. I also always ask about having Mimi present during the intake call, so that you have the choice to indicate what you do or do not like regarding Mimi's presence.
