Reiki Master/Teacher

Crystal Healer


I'm a Reiki Master/Teacher and Crystal Healer, having trained with Reiki Master and internationally renowned author Marion McGeough at the British Academy of Reiki. I have seen many people benefit from reiki and crystal treatments and would like to give more people the opportunity to experience this for themselves.


I came to reiki by chance.  I was in a challenging place personally and felt that something needed to change in my life.  I was already having regular reflexology treatments so was open to the idea of complementary therapies and I came across a book on reiki by Marion McGeough.  As I read through it, I felt the metaphorical lightbulb go on and realised this was what I needed.  I immediately signed up for Marion's Level 1 reiki course, and the rest as they say, is history.


Starting January 2017, I will be also offering reiki courses.

All Reiki Masters can trace their lineage back to Mikao Usui, the originator of reiki. This is mine:

What is Reiki?
The word 'Reiki' comes from two Japanese words - rei (pronounced ray) and ki (pronounced key).  There are several translations of these words but my favourite is universal life force (rei) energy (ki).  Reiki is a gentle energy healing treatment that promotes a state of deep relaxation providing balance to both mind and emotions.
Benefits include:
  • Promotes deep relaxation
  • Reduces anxiety
  • Helps manage symptoms and side effects of medication
  • Supports recovery after injury or illness
  • Promotes mental clarity
  • Provides relief during emotional distress and sorrow.
Reiki is completely safe for adults, children, babies and pregnant women.
