I am a Reiki Master Practitioner, and a member of the UK Reiki Federation, trained in the traditional Usui System of Natural Healing (Usui Shiki Ryoho).
Additionally, I am registered by the Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council (CNHC). By choosing practitioners registered with the CNHC, you can be confident that they have a high level of skill, and are fully insured.
As I would like to contribute in time to the growing body of evidence that Reiki enhances wellbeing, I am also registered with the Research Council for Complementary Medicine. (I have a particular interest in demonstrating an improved quality of life for those affected by cancer.)
It is wonderful to have made the transition from being a patient receiving Reiki to that of a therapist, sharing this potent life-enhancing energy with others.
In 2004 I was diagnosed with breast cancer. Thanks to Reiki, I sailed through the usually debilitating regime of chemotherapy, surgery and radiotherapy with minimal discomfort, high energy levels and a very positive mindset.
My Consultant actively encouraged me to combine complementary therapy with the gold star treatment I received on the NHS. She confirmed that current research shows that the highest success rates are enjoyed by those who have complementary therapy alongside standard treatment.
An initial Reiki course enabled me to actively participate in my healing process. It also ensured that I have remained healthy and free from lymphoedema ever since.
Having spent most of my working life in teaching and training, I left adult education as an award-winning tutor in 2011 to pursue a career as a Reiki therapist.
As with teaching, I am motivated by the significant difference I am able to make to peopleís lives. I derive tremendous satisfaction from the dramatic results I regularly witness in the people who come to me for treatment. Many of these have offered testimonials.
As I have experienced the benefits of Reiki during serious illness, I now volunteer my services to three cancer charities, and offer reductions to those affected by cancer and other debilitating conditions.
Given a lifelong love of music, I have channelled this into successful fundraising for several cancer charities. In 2014, I was thrilled to join the Sing to Beat Breast Cancer Choir. We recorded a charity single with Camilla Kerslake and classical crossover artists, Blake. Thereafter, there have been many exciting opportunities to perform in Londonís West End and even live on daytime television.
I passionately believe in paying things forwards (not just back). As a result of my brush with cancer, I regard myself as a survivor, and I aim to make that survival count.
