Reiki Testimonials

”The three days of Reiki 1 training were very enjoyable as Carolyn took us through the basic precepts of Reiki, the philosophy and practice, and then prepared us for the attunements. Everything was explained clearly, there was plenty of time to discuss and ask questions, and lots of time for meditating before the attunements and practising Reiki after them. Being in a small group meant the days were very personal and relaxed and I look forward very much to completing the Reiki 2 days soon.

After the training days Carolyn has been available to give help and guidance with case studies and Reiki practice and could not be more supportive. The attunements I have received have enabled me to give Reiki to others with some wonderful results as well as working on myself. Doing Reiki has changed my life so much for the better and I thoroughly recommend this discipline to everybody. In particular, any energy therapist will find that their treatments gain such a lot from this course.“ Lisa Hardi, holistic therapist.

”Carolyn delivered a fantastic Reiki training day to staff working at Claire House hospice, who had previously trained up to Reiki Master level. She had given a great deal of thought into tailoring the study day for the slightly differing practitioner levels of the group, and had skilfully put together an interesting and fun programme, covering topics particularly relevant to this specialist healthcare setting. This allowed therapists to learn some new skills including work on chakras and crystals, which will enable them to further enhance their therapies. There was a perfect balance of theoretical and practical work, which also allowed for lively and informative discussion, alongside helpful practise in a safe environment.“ Jan Scott, Complementary Therapy Co-Ordinator, Claire House children's hospice

”This has opened up a new understanding of energy, connection and the human body for me. Carolyn is an excellent teacher, I highly recommend this course if you feel called.“ Ali Bell

”This was an excellent course. Informative, sensitively delivered, good support for students, and great group atmosphere. Am so pleased I have been part of this and look forward to practicing Reiki on myself.“ Gwen Williams

”An enjoyable course meets the needs of those wishing to progress further & for those who wish to use the learnings personally.“ Hilary Rodden
