Chair

Anne-Marie Carratu

“I discovered Reiki in 2001 when I learned it to treat my son, who has Autism. His remarkable improvement, when treated regularly with Reiki, was astounding and my passion for Reiki grew experientially. Giving up my full-time corporate work in 2007, I have since become a full time Reiki Practitioner and Master Teacher, also working at St George’s Hospital, SW London as part of the Connecting Reiki with Medicine team. I joined the UKRF as an Area Rep in 2011 and was then invited to join the Management Committee that same year. For the last two years I have been Education Coordinator for the UKRF and as a qualified teacher and assessor, I am also part of the CNHC’s PSB board for Reiki education. As Acting Chair now, I would like to see the UKRF go from strength to strength and am committed to the UKRF being the most outstanding Reiki organisation that can be achieved in the UK.”
