Thank you for visiting my website. I hope you find the content helpful.
About me…… well I’ve given this some thought……
I’m passionate about working with people who are ready to make a change in their life but are feeling stuck.
I’m no different to anyone else in that I’ve had and continue to have challenges in my life, some small, some not so small and some that have felt like absolute stinkers….
I’ve been overweight, struggled with confidence and low self-esteem, been sexually abused, been promiscuous, been through relationship breakdowns, struggled with depression, anxiety, felt scared, guilty, ashamed and felt lost as to what my purpose in life is. I’m sure you get the picture.
I used to say what I thought people wanted to hear, overcommit to ‘keep people happy’, say yes when what I really wanted to say was no and moan a lot when things didn’t work out as I thought they should. This cycle, I was stuck in, continued for years….. until, that is, I found Reiki which is when everything started to change for me.
I now like to see my challenges as opportunities to learn and grow.
I’ve been fortunate enough to work in medical practices, both NHS and private, for the last 20 years, which has allowed me to see, first hand, that whilst traditional medicine has its place, it doesn’t have the answer to every ailment.
My Reiki Journey
My Reiki journey began in 2003, before that I’d not even heard of Reiki. I’d started a new job working in a medical practice and met a “Reiki Practitioner/Teacher” who worked there. I had no idea what she did but found myself being really curious. I observed her students as they attended their Reiki training and my curiosity grew and without knowing much or why, other than being aware of a strong feeling within, asked if I could join her next class…. and my Reiki journey began.
My journey has taken many twists and turns, introduced me to many new spiritual practices and teachers and allowed me to grow in knowledge and undertanding of me.
As I increased my Reiki practice, studying to Master Teacher level in 2007, opportunities to grow in strength and confidence opened up. The challenges that life presented me with seemed to have more meaning and although I still have to work through the challenges, I’m not pretending it’s been easy, I feel much more able. I’ve found daily meditation, breathing techniques and walking in nature, which my teachers introduced me to, have become a valued part of my day to day and I’m aware how much more peaceful I feel following these new practices.
I look forward to each day, embracing opportunities, whatever they may be, to learn and grow and I know I want to share the path that Reiki has set me on with those that feelready to begin their Reiki journey.
Now fifteen years on, and so many students I’ve lost count, there is nothing I enjoy more than being able, in the best way I know how, to share Dr Usui’s teachings and support others on their journey of self-discovery, growth, health and wellness, as they open up to their full potential.
I know there is a lot more to life than meets the eye and that there is a reason why you are reading this right now. If you feel ready to begin your Reiki journey let me know, I’d love to meet you, introduce you to Reiki and share this part of your journey with you.
What is Reiki?
Reiki is an energy healing system that works holistically on the whole body, mind and spirit. Reiki is not a system of religious belief, it is simply a relaxing treatment where natural healing vibrations are transmitted through the hands of a Reiki practitioner (acting as a channel) and absorbed through the client’s chakras (energy centres) and auric field. The purpose of a Reiki treatment is to relieve stress and pain, induce relaxation, release emotional blockages, accelerate natural healing, balance the bodies energy system and support the body’s regenerative self-healing ability.
