Reiki Practitioner Course (including Reiki 1 and Reiki 2)

The Gaia School of Natural Health is thrilled to be accredited and verified by the Reiki Federation and the CNHC to offer the new style qualification in reiki training: the Reiki Practitioner Course, which is a qualification to practice reiki as a practitioner and leads to the Reiki Practitioner Course certificate. The accreditation from the Reiki Federation (Verification Number: 2014-1025P) and the CNHC confirm that the course meets the required number of hours, attunements, content and case studies as specified by the Reiki Council Core Curriculum and the reiki National Occupational Standards. Those wishing to work within hospices or NHS environments are increasingly being required to have trained to this recognised level.

Please note that we are currently the only school/Reiki Master Teacher on the Wirral, in West Cheshire, Merseyside and North Wales accredited to offer this level of reiki training. Completion of this qualification will ensure that in this changing environment of regulation of complementary therapies, you will meet all the required criteria for membership of professional associations and regulatory bodies. Reiki training is provided by Carolyn Roberts who is a Reiki Master Teacher and practitioner.

Reiki is a safe, gentle and relaxing healing method which can be learned and used easily by anyone. You may choose to learn Reiki for your own personal use, or you may wish to train in order to become a qualified practitioner.

Reiki courses

The Reiki Practitioner Course consists of three elements. You must attend all three and complete the required case studies and assessments in order to complete the Reiki Practitioner Course.

  1. Reiki I

  2. Reiki II

  3. Reiki Practitioner
    Skills Workshop
    (exemptions available for qualified therapists in other disciplines). This workshop should be undertaken after Reiki I, but can be before or after Reiki II.

The Core Curriculum states that training must take place over a minimum of 9 months, however you can choose to attend each of the three parts of the course whenever you feel ready, so you can take longer than this if you wish to. Reiki I and II may also be taken for personal reasons and without the intention to practice as a Reiki Practitioner, in which case completion of the case studies is not compulsory, and a certificate of attendance, only, will be given.

Those who have completed Reiki I and Reiki II, or the Reiki Practitioner Course may also choose to undertake Reiki III (Reiki Master) training, when they feel they are ready for it, with the Gaia School of Natural Health.
