I have trained in traditional Usui reiki to Master/Teacher degree, which enables me to practice this wonderful holistic complementary therapy and to carry out distance treatments. I provide a warm, professional, and confidential service in the comfort of your own home, which can include a full reiki session taking approximately an hour, or the reiki can be tailored to suit your individual needs or preferences.
Animals also benefit from reiki if they are or have been injured or off-colour, and they tend to be very receptive to it. Not all animals will tolerate it; one of my own dogs, for example, gets down off my knee when I try giving reiki to her. My other dog, however, is a rescue who was badly abused and he loves reiki.
Reiki works on the principle that all living things have a 'life force energy', which at times can become depleted or out of balance. Practitioners believe that when our life force energy is low we are more likey to become sick or stressed, either physically, mentally, or spiritually. Reiki replenishes the energy to our correct levels, and enables us to feel happier, more relaxed and at peace, and more able to cope with the difficulties life throws at us.
Before the end of this year (2016) I will have achieved my teaching certificate and I'm so looking forward to sharing my knowledge and experiences, so that my students can create their own store of experience and 'share the love' with clients of their own :-).
Training, qualifications & experience
There are three levels to Usui Reiki, the original form of reiki, and I have completed all three of them to the Master/Teacher level. It is possible to become a Reiki Master without attaining the teaching degree, but I want to teach this wonderful holistic therapy and hope to do so by the end of this year (2016).
I completed level 1 in April 2015, which allowed me to practice on family and friends, and level 2 in October 2015, increasing the energies I'm able to channel to practitioner level and allowing me to broaden my client base and to carry out distant healing. In July 2016 I completed the Master/Teacher class, although the teaching certificate is not issued until my own Reiki Master is satisfied that I have sufficient teaching experience to hold classes of my own. My attunements and lessons at all three levels were given by the same lovely Reiki Master at True Serenity in Rochdale, Lancs.
My own experience of this wonderfully warm treatment is that it helps to bring perspective and a sense of peace and balance when life's stresses become too much, and my experiences as a practitioner have been many and varied. No two sessions are the same, not even for the same client, and it is important to recognise that by accepting reiki the client does their own healing. Any practioner who claims 'their' energy works miracles is feeding their own ego and is best avoided. The practitioner is merely a channel.
Clients have experienced a whole range of responses; deep, deep relaxation; emotionally cleansing responses such as crying or deep-seated anger leaving the body; physical responses such as no longer requiring back support after being reliant on it for many years; spiritual responses such as out-of-body experiences or the increased ability to make correct life decisions; the list goes on. I have practiced reiki on men, women, children, and animals, and I am passionate about the practice, believing it can only do good to the recipient even if they don't 'see' or 'feel' anything during the session. Everybody is different and everybody is very welcome.

Fees are negotiable, depending on individual requirements and how far I travel to reach you. However, charges will usually be between £25 and £30 for a full session, as you will pay only for my time and travel.
