I have always been intrigued by alternative therapies, but if you'd told me 10 years ago that I would be a Reiki Master (both human and Equine) I would have laughed at you!
I have three grown up children of whom I am very proud. While they were growing up, I was lucky enough to be able to stay at home with them, and on a voluntary basis ran a Surrey based Rehabilitation Centre in conjunction with an equine charity situated in Wales for old and abused horses. Horses came to me to either recover in both their body and minds, and then to be rehomed to loving homes, or to spend the remainder of their days in peace and comfort.
I have spent most of my working life in education, supporting children with special needs, using my BSc (Hons) in Psychology and an MEd in Special Education: Autism to good effect. Until recently, I worked with young adults with Speech and Language challenges, although the majority of my time has been spent with children with autism.
I have always appreciated that my body responds much better to alternative therapies than conventional medicine, and wherever possible I take this route. I have a passion for Reiki and the benefits it can provide, ranging from blissful relaxation and feeling more at one with yourself, to helping with more challenging issues such as anxiety, exam stress and sleeping issues to name but a few.
I currently have three rescue dogs, all of whom have had lives of abuse and neglect before they came to me. I use Reiki to help balance them and release any past traumas that are ready to be released.
I am a member of the UK Reiki Federation and am fully insured. I also have an enhanced DBS. I have a dedicated room in my home that has been designed to promote a positive space to facilitate healing, and I also work at Chevington Clinic alongside other alternative therapy practitioners, some of whom I have known and been treated by for years! You can be assured that all sessions are confidential, non-judgemental and will be led by the needs of you and your body.
My training was in person, with regular supervisions and face-to-face attunements. To allow me to become a member of the UK Reiki Federation, the requirement was to complete a written assessment and over 100 hours of healing both on myself and 100 hours on clients. As a requirement of the UK Reiki Federation, I am bound to undertake continuous professional development, meaning that I am constantly evaluating and improving my practice.
