Reiki Training Courses

Once you have experienced receiving Reiki you may well decide that you would like to learn to use it for yourself.  

A Reiki training course at the first degree - Level 1, is mainly about you!  Being attuned to the energy for the first time and becoming accustomed to the feel of the Reiki energy. Then learning how to use it for your own self-healing, and beginning to use it to help others. 


Reiki training at second degree - Level 2,  develops your ability to connect to the energy, being attuned to the symbols, discovering what they represent and the ways that they can be used, learning how to 'send' Reiki through distance healing, and beginning to develop your own intuition when healing. 

Reiki at third degree - Level 3, brings the use of the master symbol and reinforces everything that you have learned at first and second degree, but developing your understanding further, allowing you to use more advanced techniques.  This level is separated into two strands: Level 3A Master Practitioner, and Level 3B: Master Teacher. 

Level 1 Training Course Details

  • Reiki First Degree (Level 1) is a two-day course, giving twelve hours of contact time with me. The course has been designed aiming to keep within the National Occupational Standards for Reiki, and to give you maximum opportunity for practising working with the energy for yourself, and also with other people.  

Reiki at the first degree is mainly about you developing yourself and becoming accustomed to using the energy for your own self-healing, and beginning to use it to help others. 

The aim for the Level One training is:

  • To introduce you to Reiki and its history.
  • To attune you to Reiki and for you to make the connection with the energy.
  • To introduce you to the practice of Reiki for your own self-healing.
  • To introduce you to giving Reiki to other people.

Following the attunement process you will begin to:


  • Develop your sensitivity to the flow of energy.
  • Begin to learn how to use the energy for your own self-healing, and for others.
  • Develop your ability to channel the energy and starting to trust in your own intuitive abilities.
  • Learn to focus your attention and drop into the ‘now’ moment so allowing yourself to be a clear channel for the energy flow.

By the end of the second day you will be able to give yourself a treatment, know how to give a seated and a full treatment to another person, and have a range of techniques that you can use when you are using Reiki.  You will also receive your Level One Certificate.

Once you have completed the training, you won't be on your own.  I will be there to support you and answer any questions or queries that you have to help you while you are learning.

Next steps: After your Level 1 course 

Following your course I would encourage you to self-treat as often as possible – try really hard to self-treat every day at least for the first 21 days, this doesn’t have to be a long treatment, even just ten minutes a day will make all the difference and strengthen your connection to the energy. I would also recommend that you keep a log of any treatments that you have done for yourself, other people or animals. There is no formal requirement for any case studies to be completed at this stage, but it is useful to highlight any areas that you want to clarify, and also enable you to share your experiences with others during future training. 

If you do decide to be attuned to Second Degree Reiki (Level 2) and onto the pathway for a Practitioner Certificate, your log will provide the evidence of what you have practised, learned during your use of Reiki, and the time that you have spent actually using Reiki for yourself and others, and count towards the activities that are necessary to complete the Level 2 Practitioner course. 


The cost for this two-day course is £140 (this includes a comprehensive course manual).

10am to 5:00pm on both days.

If you would to book a course, please contact me at: (there is a direct link to this e-mail address on my Home page)

or ring me on 07521 447642

Please note:  Refreshments will be available throughout both days, but lunch is not provided.  

The ideal format for this training is a two-day course, giving twelve hours of contact time with me, but it could be possible to split the training into modular format of six two-hour sessions, or four three-hour sessions.  To complete the course, twelve hours of contact time is essential, and your Certificate would only be issued after this.  

Next steps:  Progressing on to Reiki Second Degree (Level 2) where you will be able to develop your practice by using the symbols that you will be attuned to, and this will include being able to do distance treatments. 



Level 2 Course Details

Reiki at Level 2 is a two-day course with twelve hours of contact time with me.  The course is designed aiming to work within the National Occupational Standards for Reiki, and to give you maximum opportunity for developing your use of the energy for yourselves and for others.  I have separated the Level 2 training into two parts:

Level 2 Skills Workshop:  This will give you the benefit of being attuned to the three symbols and developing your skills and knowledge, and you can then continue to use Reiki for yourself, family and friends.

Practitioner Certificate:  This is the minimum requirement if you want to go on to work professionally, and charge for the treatments that you do. 


At Level 2 you are attuned to three of the Reiki symbols and this will bring a much deeper connection to the energy, and to your higher self.  Each symbol represents a different aspect of the energy and you will discover how the energy of each symbol feels and learn how to use them individually and altogether.  


The aim for this Level 2 Skills Workshop is:


  • To recap on topics covered during the Level 1 training.
  • To introduce you to the symbols and mantras, and give you the opportunity to practise using them on yourself and others.
  • To introduce you to distance treatments.
  • To help you develop your own intuition further.
  • To introduce you to techniques appropriate to Level 2 work. 

By the end of the two-day workshop you will understand what the three symbols mean and explored how to use them individually and altogether.  You will have practised doing distance treatments using a teddy bear as a surrogate, and will have begun to develop your own psychic ability by tuning into another person via a photograph.  You will also have practised using a pendulum to check chakras and meridians for balance.

A certificate showing that you have done Reiki Level 2 training will be issued at the end of the two-day course, but please note that this will NOT give you Practitioner status.  

The cost for this two-day Skills Workshop is £160 (this includes a comprehensive course manual)

10am to 5:30pm on both days. 


This will involve:

Attending a separate Practitioner Preparation Mentoring session that will give you the criteria for meeting the requirements of Practitioner status.

Completing a set of case studies.  

Commitment to developing yourself further through private study.  

All requirements need to be met to before a Practitioner Certificate can be issued. 

It is expected that this element of the Level 2 training will take at least 9 to 12 months to complete, but you will be able to work at your own pace so it doesn't matter if it takes longer.


An additional fee of £80 will be payable to cover the cost of the Preparation Mentoring Session and marking of your case studies.
