Reiki is a simple, gentle, yet highly-effective practice that can enhance well-being and can be easily learned by anyone. If you are interested in learning how, I offer courses in traditional Japanese Usui Reiki Ryoho (Usui Spiritual Energy Healing Method) and like to teach in small groups or individually. Whatever suits you best.

Recognised as a complimentary therapy, the practice is traditionally centred on building awareness of one’s Ki (energy) and working with different methods to ensure health and vitality on all levels.

I am one of just two graduate teachers in the UK for the International House of Reiki (see more here) and am the Gloucestershire representative for the UK Reiki Federation. I teach what has been practised in Japan since the early 1900s – before the system of Reiki moved to the west. These earlier teachings consider the system not just to be a hands-on-healing practice but one that also focuses on a student’s spiritual path that supports healing and personal development. This particular method includes physical and energy enhancing exercises to help practitioners delve deeper into their Reiki practice. It is a simple, gentle, yet highly-effective practice that can enhance well-being and can be easily learned by anyone. I teach all three levels of Reiki, from my home in the Cotswolds and from the Isbourne Holistic Centre in Cheltenham, Gloucestershire (see more here). Reiki Level I is for beginners, and for those who wish to practice on friends and family. Reiki Level II is for those with the Reiki 1 qualification who wish to practice professionally. Reiki Level III courses are for those who hold the Reiki 2 qualification and who wish to take the practice further. My students also enjoy access to my Jo Fellows students’ monthly Reiki share which is held in Cheltenham, which gives you the opportunity to practice and meet like-minded people.

Everyone’s journey is unique. Reiki is an energetic practice and can only be experienced energetically. This means that there is no hurry to move onto the next level until you are ready. Progression must be at your own pace. Reiki is a lifetime practice and a journey into self-discovery.

Reiki Level 1 (Shoden) course
This course is for beginners.
At this level you learn the skills, knowledge and ability to give Reiki to yourself, family, friends and pets (but not professionally). During the course you will receive energy (Ki) attunements and be taught techniques to enable you to sense and cultivate Ki. You will be taught the five precepts of traditional Japanese Reiki, which will help your development. You will also learn some of the history of Reiki. You will finish the course with a solid foundation on which to build your personal practice.

The cost of £175 includes Reiki training and initiations, the course manual and on-going support to suit you. A £40 deposit is required four weeks before the start of the course to secure your place.

Reiki Level 2 (Okuden) course
This course is for those who have completed Reiki 1. This level is known as the practitioner level meaning that you are equipped and qualified to apply the Reiki energy and techniques professionally, if you so choose.

Okuden is Japanese for 'inner teachings'. As the word implies, at this level a deeper understanding and connection to the founder’s teachings is achieved, and you will develop a deeper connection to Reiki. You will learn three symbols and mantras, enabling you to learn and experience the Japanese energetic system of earth and heavenly energy. An important part of Level 2 is to move beyond standard hand positions when you treat people, to embrace intuitive working. You’ll learn how to allow the energy to guide you in terms of where you rest your hands – it’s a lovely way to work. You’ll also learn how to send Reiki long-distance in a variety of ways, so you can experiment and find the approach that works best for you.

Certification requires evidence of 15 hands on treatments completed within six months, along with evidence of practicing daily routines, documented by a Reiki journal.

The cost of £175 includes Reiki training and initiations, the course manual and on-going support to suit you. A £40 deposit is required four weeks before the start of the course to secure your place.

Reiki Level 3 (Shinpiden) course (Master/Teacher level)
Shinpiden is the Japanese word for ‘mystery teachings’. It is for Level 2 practitioners or established Reiki teachers who wish to continue their personal journey. This level is truly about a lifetime personal development practice. It teaches you how to become a Reiki teacher, enabling you to perform attunements and Reiju. You will also learn a much deeper and philosophical understanding of Reiki and how you relate to the rest of the universe.

It will help to deepen your self-healing by focusing on energies that bring powerful physical and emotional balancing and bring a deep sense of connection.

An important part of the Master Teacher level is to full open to your intuitive powers and to explore the power of intent. The cost of £500 includes Reiki training and initiations, the course manual and on-going support to suit you. A £100 deposit is required four weeks before the start of the course to secure your place.
