My History of Training

I began training at 1st Degree Reiki on 6th February 2006 with Jane Scullion (Northwich, Cheshire). 


I completed training in 2nd Degree Reiki 'Usui Shiki Ryoho' with an Elizabeth Bates on 7th June 2006 (Nantwich, Cheshire). 

I completed further training at 3rd Degree with Jane Scullion (Northwich, Cheshire) at Reiki Master Healer/Teacher on 27th February 2013.

After discovering that there was so much more to Reiki than this, I began retraining with Simon Bailey at the Navitas Holistic Centre, Crewe.  Here I completed the following:

Western  (Modern) Reiki Lineage

Usui Shiki Ryoho Reiki - Level 2 - Practitioner - 5th October 2014

I am so very fortunate to have had the opportunity to train with Simon, as he no longer teaches Reiki courses.  He runs consciousness retreats and is a consciousness coach.

The Power of Chanting – Webinair 2019

On 12th October 2016 - I completed a further Reiki Master Practitioner and Teacher Course (online) with Taggart King, Reiki Evolution.  This course took place over an 8 month period.  The course brings Western Reiki together with Japanese Reiki, and a different perspective on working with the energies of symbols, and distance 'empowerments'.

Mindfulness Training:  In 2017 - I completed 2 different Mindfulness training courses, one online MBSR (Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction) and one in-house.  One was in the style of 'Thich Nhat Hanh' (Community of Interbeing) and the second in the style of 'Jon Kabat-Zinn' (Mindfulness UK).

I became a member of The Shibumi International Reiki Association in 2018 - The organisation supports the Japanese art of the system of Reiki - Frans Stiene (International House of Reiki).

On 23rd May 2019 - I completed a Reiki Master Practitioner and Teacher Course, at Abbey House in Glastonbury.  The course was run by William Lee Rand (International Center for Reiki Training) another prominent teacher, this time I trained in Holy Fire® III and Karuna® Reiki.

In October 2020 - Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction (Mindfulness UK) 8 week course, online and teacher led, this was completed in December.  This personal development in Mindfulness will further support our Reiki practices and journey of self-healing and self-discovery, as Mindfulness played a large part in Usui's Reiki from 2nd degree onwards.

March 2021 - Online (Zoom) Mindfulness Retreat (3 days) with The Community of Interbeing - Be Calm, Be Happy with teachers Katie Sheen, Laurie Bower and Ian Sneath, in the teaching style of Thich Nhat Hanh
