I am a Master Reiki Practitioner, Teacher also a Master Animal Reiki Practitioner and CNHC registered. In 2011 an unexpected introduction to the wonders of Reiki compelled me to commence my training and I was hooked! I became a Member of the UK Reiki Federation in 2012. I now run my own Reiki business The Reiki Experience giving Reiki to both people and animals as well as managing Friends Of Baxter the holistic animal therapy venture I founded in 2015 which will see its first dedicated charity therapy and training centre open in 2018.
As a committee member I have co-ordinated our Pioneers group since 2015 but now I am directing all of my efforts into the development of Animal Reiki as a professional therapy in its own right, rather than an ‘add on’ to human Reiki. This requires the creation of high quality training standards and many supporting initiatives that will in time lead to increased veterinary understanding and greater public awareness.
Whilst championing the UK Reiki Federation Animal Reiki agenda I am co-ordinating a project with all eight Professional Reiki Organisations that make up the Reiki Council to develop official National Occupational Standards for Animal Reiki training. We will then professionally recognise Animal Reiki training in the UK, offer Animal Reiki Practitioner certificates and both approve and promote Animal Reiki training courses. My primary goal is to increase the number of animals and people who may benefit appropriately from our lovely therapy professionally and compassionately in accordance with UK Reiki Federation’s quality standards.
