How did I get into Reiki?
For many years I was a Publisher at The Quarto Group, the world's leading illustrated book publisher and distribution group. It was an enjoyable, intense career, working with talented colleagues in a demanding, deadline-driven and fast-changing sector. To help me stay consistently well and strong, I had Reiki around once a month. In honesty, I didn’t know what it was exactly, or how it worked, and hardly had the time to find out—but I booked it because I knew that without fail I always gained useful benefits from it. Reiki refreshed my mind, helped me sleep, cleared up infections, boosted my energy, dramatically aided the impact of timezone changes when travelling, mitigated the fatigue of a daily 4 hour commute, and generally gave me headspace and sanity.
When I retired from publishing, having gained such benefit from Reiki, I decided to take a closer look. After researching how to access the best training, I enrolled with Sue Baker. All degrees of my Reiki training were brilliant experiences. In fact, I’m still wary of the term ‘Master’ because I believe that good practitioners are always open to learning more, and always students. I favour a calm and practical approach to Reiki and tend to steer clear of New Age descriptions and additions.
I positively enjoy practicing Reiki and my motivation is to help my clients improve or maintain their health.
