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).

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:

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 I started a Mindfulness Teacher Training Course with Mindfulness UK. The training will be for a minimum of a year, and will be supported by extra training via silent retreats, mindfulness retreats and other short courses. 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.
