"Best course I
have ever done ... almost 3 years ago now and I'm
still enjoying helping people and
appreciated your effective combination of Reiki
and counselling. Since my course of Reiki
treatments with you a couple of months ago I've
noticed huge improvements in how I feel. You've
helped me achieve an inner stillness and balance
that none of the previous therapists I've seen
were able to do. I attribute this not only to your
excellent healing skills, but also to your
sensitivity, compassion and ability to truly
understand your clients' needs."
Reiki - a magical experience for
mind, body and spirit.
Reiki Treatments in Edinburgh
During this period when we are all being asked to continue to socially and professionally isolate as much as possible in the fight to stop the spread of Coronavirus, I am open again for business as usual, but in addition to offering face-to-face appointments and workshops, I am also offering support in the form of telephone, Zoom, Skype and FaceTime consultations. These have been working very well during lockdown. If you would like to speak to me about your needs, please feel free to call me for a chat on 0131 476 2585, or leave me a message with your name and phone number if you would like me to call you back.
Pure Reiki: 1 hour of pure Reiki, sitting or lying down, hands on or hands off.
Reiki 'Plus': 1½ hours. A powerful combination of Reiki with counselling or coaching to help with stress or other issues. Can include relaxation, stress management, self-healing and breathing techniques to use at home that really make a difference. Audio recordings are provided where useful.
IEMT-Reiki: 1½ hours. I also offer IEMT (integral eye movement therapy), a highly effective process for changing unhelpful emotions, beliefs and stuck states very quickly and with permanent results. I have consistently found that IEMT has created rapid change in clients where no other approach they have tried in the past has worked.
Hypno-Reiki: 1½ hours. Reiki and hypnotherapy work really well together. The ultimate healing experience. Really effective! Depending on the issue you would like to address, hypnotherapy can either be done first, sitting up, followed by Reiki, or it can be done during the Reiki treatment itself, lying down.
Counselling/IEMT/Hypnotherapy without Reiki1 hour or 1½ hours sessions. Sometimes Reiki is not the most effective approach for a particular issue. You might decide to choose sessions without Reiki if you are looking for help in resolving trauma, a phobia, fear, grief, guilt, shame, or anger issues that keep throwing you off balance; or if you feel stuck and do not understand why; or if you have a persistent personal behaviour or attitude challenge that is holding you back in some way and you suspect that it stems from something in your past. Patterns of belief and behaviour are laid down in our early childhood (generally under the age of 10, when children are very susceptible) that can affect us for the rest of our lives if not addressed. A traumatic experience is not always recognised as such at the time but can have a lasting effect all the same. IEMT is particularly useful in resolving challenges of this kind ... usually very quickly, often in just one or two sessions
Reiki Courses in Edinburgh
Learn Reiki for health, happiness and
vitality. Find out how to take control of your life
I teach Reiki in small groups throughout the year. Reiki Level I, II and III courses are all taught over a full weekend to give you plenty of time for learning, practice, discussion and sharing.
The Reiki courses are all run in a comfortable, welcoming and attractive environment and the atmosphere is very relaxed, giving you a friendly experience of learning Reiki.
I am also happy to teach Reiki on a private one-to-one basis.
I am often asked what the difference is between a 1-day or a 2-day course for each level, and why I do not teach Reiki Levels 1 & 2 together in one weekend. A 2-day course gives you a much richer understanding of energy and how it works, helpful knowledge about the mind/body connection, and a deeper insight not only into yourself but also into other people and situations in your life.
Many students experience significant 'aha' moments as we reflect together on life and its challenges and on how using energy allows us to respond more effectively and feel more in control. This understanding is often truly life transforming, and will give you real confidence in applying what you have learned to create the life you want.
What you learn at Level 1 needs to be practised and integrated into your life in order for you to get the most of out of Level 2, which takes you much deeper into the subject. This is why I have never taught the two levels together. Combining the two simply does not do Reiki justice, in my view. Understanding is everything! There is so much more to Reiki than many people recognise.

I have been practising and teaching Reiki in Edinburgh for over 18 years and have a well established private practice, working from home. Before that I worked in business and in personal development and effectiveness training.
I also hold qualifications in stress & trauma resolution, advanced hypnotherapy & hypno-healing, life coaching, Human Givens counselling & psychotherapy, Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT), Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP) and Integral Eye Movement Therapy (IEMT). For this reason I offer not only Reiki treatments but also Reiki combined with counselling, hypnotherapy and/or IEMT, a combination which I have found works particularly effectively for many people.
I teach Reiki courses in Edinburgh at all levels: Reiki 1, Reiki 2, Reiki Master Practitioner and Reiki Master Teacher and over the years almost a 1,000 people have attended my workshops.
Many people also come to me for Reiki treatments and Reiki workshops from areas outside Edinburgh - from all over Scotland, England and as far afield as France, Germany and Spain.
From my own life and from other client's experiences, I know that difficulties can in fact be blessings in disguise even though they certainly don't feel like it at the time. When the body/mind shouts out its stress and dis-ease loudly enough, we are finally forced to stop and listen to it. I have lost count of the number of clients who, when they begin to feel better, say that what they have learnt through it all has made a really positive difference to their lives and outlook. It can be life transforming.
More about me ...
Reiki was originally developed in Japan a hundred years ago as a method for health, happiness and peace of mind. Reiki is a highly effective energy treatment for relaxation, calming the nervous system and boosting the immune system. Reiki has many therapeutic benefits at all levels - physical, mental, emotional and spiritual - and inspires wisdom, insight and understanding that can literally transform your outlook and your life.
You need to experience the loving, soothing and supportive energy of Reiki therapy to really understand its effects. Over time it can make a real difference to how you feel in all areas of your life. It does not merely deal with symptoms but may also address the root mental, physical and emotional causes of ill health or dis-ease at a subconscious level.
Many people report that over time Reiki brings them relief from anxiety and stress, emotional and physical pain, injury, illness, trauma and personal concerns. The results can sometimes be dramatic as the relaxing support of Reiki can boost the auto-immune system and stimulate the body's own natural healing process. As the body becomes stronger and more in balance, it is then better able to restore itself.
Reiki gently and effectively complements all types of medical treatment and does not compromise prescribed medication.
"Thank you for
a fantastic Reiki I workshop. The small group size
and the atmosphere you created felt safe,
respectful and nurturing and it was a good place
to learn, share and reflect. It was also
good fun! You teach Reiki really well and by
the end of the weekend I was confident that I
understood what energy healing is all about and
how to continue practising it effectively on my
own at home."
"The Reiki I
weekend was really enjoyable and I have learned so
much from it. Thank you for everything. I
especially enjoyed hearing your personal
experiences and understanding of Reiki and working
with energy. Sharing such a wealth of experience
with us helped put things into context for me and
made it real."
