When social distancing restrictions were introduced as a result of COVID-19, we launched live video online training and we have found it to be just as enjoyable for our students and equally effective. 


We have also been very keen to ensure that our online training maintains its high quality standards and continues to comply with requirements for professional recognition by the Reiki Council and its nine member organisations including the largest UK Reiki organisation, the UK Reiki Federation. 


Feedback has been wonderful - a few comments are noted below.  This interactive online training includes all of our usual training content but for a certificate of completion and training that is professionally recognised, you will need to attend an in-person training session afterwards. This session will include your attunements and some practical treatment/ technique work.


At Level 2 and beyond, additional treatment work is required prior to certification.

Courses available online :

Our training at level 1, 2 and 3 is approved by the UK Reiki Federation as meeting National Occupational Standards for accredited registration with the Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council (CNHC)

If you are interested in Animal Reiki and related training please see Therapy Training - Friends Of Baxter

Reiki training MUST be completed at level 1 before level 1 Animal Reiki training is permitted

Reiki training MUST be completed at level 2 before level 2 Animal Reiki training is permitted.
An Animal Reiki Practitioner must also be qualified and insured to give Reiki to people as it is sometimes necessary to help the animal's carer to fully benefit the animal.

"I have found my online training hugely beneficial. I feel like it is a perfect substitute to training in person during these difficult times. I am enjoying continuing my educational journey as well as appreciating the calmness and mindfulness the online sessions bring to my day at home while self isolating."



"I have been attending Sue's level 1 Reiki course initially face to face and now (due to COVID-19) online. The course is excellent and easy to follow and understand.  The energy and teaching is conducted in the same manner online as face to face and I would highly recommend anyone who wishes to learn Reiki to sign up."




"Sue always creates a safe environment in which to ask any questions, she explains things well and is incredibly patient and supportive.  Her knowledge never ceases to amaze me. There was a good balance of theory and practical work and guidance on what we need to do moving forward. I enjoyed the course immensely and I am already feeling the benefits (a few days later). I don't think I would want anyone other than Sue supporting me on my Reiki journey.

Online delivery worked far better than I expected and I was really thankful that we were able to do it this way in the current circumstances."


“I thoroughly enjoyed the course.  The time went very quickly, and I look forward to developing my Reiki journey.  Sue always invites questions and comments, and makes time to provide considered answers, based on years of experience. The course delivery worked well over Zoom.”


Having previously attended my Reiki training in person, I didn't know what to expect with regards to having to complete my training online this time around...I'm always happy to try new things though, so of course I was going to give it a go. I'm glad I did: Everything flowed perfectly, from the simplicity of logging into the online training, feeling the energy, completing activities, to the interaction which was in real time without delays. I thoroughly enjoyed my online training, in fact it felt as though Sue was sat in my living room.”

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.

This  course is run over 2 consecutive days but is also being run across a number of shorter times eg over a few afternoons or evenings that add up to the same number of hours. It will consist of theory, putting the theory into practice and attunements. After this course you will be able to give Reiki to yourself.

Providing that you attend and complete the in-person session we will then award your Reiki level 1 certificate. You can then carry out Reiki treatments on an unpaid basis with friends and family. You will be asked to complete a number of treatments if you wish to progress to level II (practitioner level).


Our courses 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.

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. 


You will need to attend the follow up in-person session and be asked to complete the required treatments and hours of practice following your level 2 training in order to gain adequate experience before being awarded your Reiki level II certificate. Then you may offer your services as a Reiki Practitioner to paying customers. We will also discuss practical aspects such as professional indemnity insurance, code of ethics and conduct, membership of a professional Reiki organisation also ways to gain further experience. 

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. Attendance at an in-person session is also vital, when this is viable, for a certificate to be awarded


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

The course ensures that you have been trained to and are competent to meet the relevant National Occupational Standards [NOS], developed with Skills for Health, for delivering Reiki professionally. It also provides training and discussion on anatomy, physiology and pathology, marketing, business, finances, and relevant legislation. 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 level 3,  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.  

This training course is approved by the UK Reiki Federation (the largest UK Reiki organisation) as providing all the requirements for registration onto the CNHC Register 

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.

The theory content of this training course can be done via our online interactive means.  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.
