Reiki Training


Reiki becomes a way of life allowing you to live your life in a more effective way, prioritising the important things and learning to let go of unnecessary negative aspects of your existence. People who practise other therapies often find that reiki enhances their primary therapy. There are different levels of reiki which you progress through at a rate that allows you to develop your skills and awareness.  Each level has associated attunements and symbols which allow you to work with reiki. The training at this centre is based on the national occupational standards and core curriculum developed by the Reiki Council in the UK in association with Skills for Health, the UK Reiki Federation which has worked closely with national standard setting bodies to ensure professional competence and also the International Center for Reiki Training. 

There are four levels of training available within the Usui discipline:

Reiki I - this is a two day course which introduces you to reiki and allows you to work with friends and family.  You are expected to develop your skills at this level before progressing to reiki II. This can take from 6 weeks - 12 months and you progress at a rate that feels comfortable for you.

Reiki II - this is a two day course which introduces you to the use of symbols within reiki and distance healing.  This is the basic practitioner level and allows you to practise on members of the public once you become fully insured. 

Advanced Reiki Training (ART) (3a) - for practitioners who have been practising at reiki II level and have had at least 12 months since their reiki 1 training -  a standalone one day course which introduces more advanced techniques and symbols to assist with treatments for practitioners who wish to extend their skills but who do not wish to teach.  On completion you are considered to be a Reiki Master Practitioner.

Reiki Master Practitioner/Teacher in training Level (3b) - criteria as above.  An additional 2 + days training following the ART course.  You are required to have completed the requirements for registration with the CNHC before undertaking this level.  The course can be combined with ART or taken at a later time if you decide you would like to have the ability to attune people to reiki. At this level, you are introduced to the necessary skills to attune students, to offer healing attunements to clients, and to begin to understand the responsibilities of teaching/training others in reiki. On completion you are considered to be a Reiki Master Practitioner / Teacher in training. 

The term 'teacher' is slightly confusing as it is based on the traditional reiki terminology linked with someone who has evolved their reiki experience not our western expectations of university level teaching registration. If you wish to train others in reiki, I would recommend that you gain some experience in managing groups either through attending a basic introduction to training or by shadowing on the training courses here at the centre.  This involves attending the reiki courses so you can observe the teaching involved and to co-tutor for a while in order to develop the necessary competence and confidence to run your own courses.  The UKRF suggests a minimum of 6 months for this period of training and consolidation though this will be negotiated with each student individually based on previous experiences.  At this point you are a Reiki Master Teacher (4) and able to run your own training courses.

Our courses are designed to be accessed at a rate that is flexible to your needs. Additional workshops and support are offered for those who are wanting to follow the core curriculum pathway to Reiki Practitioner status and registration with the CNHC. This route requires a student to complete training and practice hours along with a prescribed knowledge content. The details are discussed on the Reiki I and II courses so you can decide how to proceed. If you are wanting to use Reiki professionally then it is now recommended that you complete this pathway. You can still get insurance and practice after Reiki II.

Training courses are run on a regular basis so please contact if you would like further information or keep visiting the calendar of the web site for planned dates.

If you are considering starting to train, please feel free to come and discuss your plans and try a reiki treatment to see if it feels as good the information you have read. You won't be disappointed!
