This is the basic entry level for learning the technique of Reiki. Whether you wish to work with people or animals you need to learn to offer Reiki to people first.

The 2 day course will consist of you receiving attunements, as well as learning theory and putting your learning into practice. After this course you will be able to give Reiki to yourself and on an unpaid basis to friends and family. You will then be asked to complete a number of treatments if you wish to progress to level II (practitioner level).


Our weekends are an opportunity to meet like-minded people, have fun and learn a technique that is yours for life but you are not left on your own after the training, Sue will be your mentor for as long as you desire her help.

Cost for 2 day course:
Small group £175 

One to one training £300

This takes your reiki to a higher level, again through a mix of attunements, theoretical learning and practical sessions. Your Reiki will strengthen and you will be taught additional skills and techniques that benefit your work with people and enable you work more effectively with animals too. If you wish to work with animals on a professional paid basis we strongly advise that you take further training and become a recognised animal Reiki practitioner afterwards.


As for level 1 you will be asked to complete the required treatments and hours of practice following your level 2 training in order to gain adequate experience before offering your services as a Reiki Practitioner to paying customers. We will also discuss practical aspects such as professional indemnity insurance, membership of a professional reiki organisation also ways to gain experience and raise awareness of your Reiki service. 

In between level 1 and 2, and ongoing afterwards, you are welcome to come to Sue's regular Reiki Shares where you can meet and chat to other people The Reiki Experience has trained, learn and practice new skills, share experiences and enjoy relaxing and fun evenings. The courses do provide a lot of learning but we aim for them above all to be enjoyable and rewarding for everyone.... and Sue is there for you afterwards should you need any support or guidance.

This training is for Practitioners who view Reiki as a way of life and wish to further develop practical skills, Reiki strength and knowledge...possibly in preparation for later teaching? This course includes a further attunement  to add strength to your Reiki, additional theoretical learning and practical sessions.  To attend this course you must have been an active Reiki Practitioner for at least 1 year, although 2 years + is more common.


We are never true masters of this technique as we are continually learning. Becoming a Master Reiki Practitioner it is also not to be seen as a status symbol, but a sign of commitment and passion for working with Reiki energy.

To be awarded your certificate you will be required to show understanding of Reiki Mastership, and demonstrate the ability to proficiently perform the new skills taught on the course.


Afterwards, you are welcome to attend monthly Reiki shares where you can meet and chat to other students trained by The Reiki Experience, you will also be supported through your future Reiki journey by Sue.

This training focuses on the development of professional skills to enable registration onto the accredited UK Complementary Natural Healthcare Council (CNHC) Register. GPs may refer their patients to any practitioners on this register

For CNHC registration you must be trained suitably to demonstrate competence in meeting the relevant National Occupational Standards [NOS], developed with Skills for Health, for delivering Reiki professionally. This includes training and discussion on anatomy, physiology and pathology, also marketing, business, finances, relevant legislation and delivery of Reiki to meet professional standards which includes 5 observed treatments. If working as a professional Reiki Practitioner, running your own business or providing a Reiki service for an other organisation this level of training is encouraged. Some hospitals consider this level of training essential in order to be employed/ contracted to provide Reiki treatments to patients, and all hospitals are being encouraged to require this standard of training. It takes Reiki training to a standard that equates to a level 3 qualification,  which makes it  comparable with many other complementary therapy training courses.  

Level 1, 2 and professional Practice Reiki training must collectively meet the requirements of The Reiki Council  core curriculum for you to be approved for CNHC registration. This involves a minimum number of training hours, self-treatments, written up treatments on others, case studies, observed treatments, and a final written assessment.  

Currently this training excludes the anatomy, physiology and pathology content but we can recommend where this training can be done to a high standard. All other aspects are included in a one day course plus arrangements of observed treatments and preparation for, observation of and evaluation of the assessment for CNHC registration.

Cost: £250 

Additional costs include: 
- Anatomy, physiology and pathology training (if you have a suitable qualification that includes this topic, you do not need to repeat this part of the training)
- Approved observers costs (will be discussed and agreed upfront)  

- A further £70pa (approx.) fee will be charged by CNHC for registration

 If you are thinking about this training for a future date it may be worth having a chat as soon as you decide. You can then start to write up your self-treatments.

This training is for Master Practitioners who have gained expertise through practice and living a Reiki way of life, and now wish to teach this wonderful therapy to others


This course prepares you for teaching, discussing all topics that should be taught and preparing your own teaching materials, or you can purchase The Reiki Experience training materials at a very reasonable cost for each course you run. You will learn how to give attunements and will also be required to attend my training where you will observe as well as playing an active role - guiding some practical work, and contributing at times. Advice will also be given on how to get started as a teacher. 


To attend this course you must be an active Reiki Master Practitioner with at least 2 years Reiki Practitioner expertise and feel ready to mentor others and share your own experiences. If you have not trained with The Reiki Experience additional training may be required.

To be awarded your certificate you will be required to demonstrate the ability and confidence to teach competently and show that your training materials (initially for level 1) follow this style and tradition of Reiki as taught by Mikau Usui, although there may be aspects that you make your own in terms of adding your own perspectives and examples. 


You are welcome to run aspects of one of my Reiki shares to gain more experience of being a teacher and I will provide support and guidance in your creation of your materials and when starting to run your own classes if desired. I expect those I train to teacher level to act as an ongoing mentor to benefit students, as required.   

Cost for 2 day course:
Small group £175 

One to one training £300 

Includes support in development and/or overview of own training materials

If you are interested in taking an animal Reiki course, these are being run by
Friends Of Baxter Animal Care, with whom we work closely. If you
wish to register your interest see for more information.


As a Reiki Practitioner you will understand and be confident offering effective Reiki Treatments. If you wish to work professionally with animals though, it is important to understand animals (body language, behaviour, handling and ideally basic anatomy & physiology). As well as being confident with general Reiki techniques additional tools are specifically helpful when working with animals in a Reiki session, for example with behavioural issues. You will be made fully aware of veterinary and other relevant legal requirements, animal welfare guidance and good practice for working with animals.


This training will provide theory and practical learning to be followed by dedicated practice and a number of Reiki session written notes before you will be awarded Animal Reiki Practitioner status.

It may be possible for this training to be conducted at your chosen animal care venue,
if suitable facilities are available for the theoretical learning and animals are
available for the practical sessions.
