I am a Reiki Master/Teacher who practices and teaches traditional Usui reiki to Master/Teacher degree, a wonderful holistic complementary therapy that can also involve distant healing treatments. I provide a warm, professional, and confidential service in the comfort of your own home, to include a full reiki session taking approximately an hour, or can tailor the reiki to suit your individual needs or preferences.
Animals also benefit from reiki, especially if they have been injured or are 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 before he came to us and he loves reiki, pressing himself into my hands.
Reiki works on the principle that all living things have a 'life force energy', which at times can become depleted, stagnant, or out of balance. When this happens we are more likey to become sick or stressed, either physically, mentally, or spiritually. Reiki replenishes the energy to the levels required, and enables us to feel happier, more relaxed and at peace, and more able to cope with the difficulties life throws at us.
I love to practice Reiki and to share what is often a deeply personal experience for the client, but I also love to share my knowledge and experiences in classes, knowing that students will then experience their own Reiki journey 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 having to teach it if this is your preference, but I love to share this wonderful holistic therapy with my students.
My own learning and attunements at all three levels were given by the same lovely Reiki Master at True Serenity in Rochdale, Lancs, and my experience of this wonderfully warm therapy is that it helps to bring perspective and a sense of peace and balance when life's stresses become too much.
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 for the energy.
Clients can experience 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 for treatments 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.
Classes at each level are over two consecutive full days, and prices take into account the cost of room hire, the manual and assorted extras given to each student which vary according the the level undertaken. Please contact me for dates, prices, and venue details. Thanks.
