Your Questions, Answered

What can Reiki help me with?

Reiki works by moving your energy; helping to keep your body, mind, heart and soul clear. This enables greater clarity, confidence and positive processes.

Typically, people have Reiki sessions for issues such as:

  • Anxiety

  • Support with life transitions

  • Burn out

  • Love and loss (grief, beginnings, endings)

  • Relationship challenges

  • Work stress

  • Support in overcoming habits 

  • Low energy

  • Relief from physical ailments

  • Spiritual alignment

  • Enabling a stronger connection with themselves

  • Clearing the heart and mind

  • Strengthening intuition

Can anybody have Reiki or the 13th Rite of the Womb blessing?

Absolutely! Both Reiki and the 13th Rite of the Womb is the energy of love and life; pure and simple. All I ask is for anyone aged 17 and under, to be accompanied by a parent/responsible guardian.

Do I need to prepare for a Reiki or 13th Rite of the Womb session?

No preparation required. You simply need to be ready to relax.

I only request that you refrain from alcohol (and recreational drugs) at least 24 hours prior to your session and try to abstain for at least 24 hours following. This is to ensure the best, most beneficial flow of energy through you.

Prior to your appointment, you may wish to take an opportunity (or few) to set yourself an intention and/or allow spiritual guidance to flow in to your heart and minds eye.

How do you conduct a Reiki or 13th Rite of the Womb session?

In person sessions:

  • Upon your arrival, we will take a few moments to relax in to the space, chat about your lifes' current journey and how Reiki and/or the 13th Rite of the Womb can help you on this path. Although you agree to the session upon booking, I will also ask you to sign a consent form to indicate that you are happy to proceed with the session. For the 13th Rite of the Womb we will begin with an loving ceremony, honouring your ancestors. You will then lay comfortably on my treatment couch (or a chair if you are unable to lay down), remaining fully clothed (you only need to remove you shoes (and glasses if wearing any)). I have pillows, blankets and eye masks to keep you comfortable and cosy. Following your session I will give yo a few moments to come back to the present space, before chatting and feeding back to each other about the session and ideas to help you on your onward journey.

Distance Reiki (13th Rite of the Womb is only conducted in person):​

  • If you are unable to attend an appointment, or would like to send Reiki to a loved one afar (please ensure they are aware and happy to receive!), this beautiful energy can be honoured anywhere, at any point in time. Distance Reiki is best received whilst in a relaxed, peaceful environment, as if you were in my treatment space. A working mobile telephone number or email address must be available as I will message 15 minutes prior to the session to remind you to get comfy, then again following the Reiki, to give my feedback of the energy and guidance I experienced from you/the recipient. I will need to know the recipients name, location and time they should receive the Reiki energy. 

How does Distance Reiki work?

Energy is constantly moving - Naturally, in growth of life and health; and moved intentionally in our man-made creations, processes through life and intentions. So whether near or far, known to me or not, Reiki energy will flow to it's intended destination - No technology needed! No video, no audio: Just a peaceful space.

Is it ok to fall asleep during Reiki?

Absolutely! Breathe, let go and relax as deeply as you wish - You will still receive the energy in just the same way.

Where are sessions held?

I am based in Reading, Berkshire. A Distance Reiki session is sent by me to you, wherever you are. Please note, all sessions are by pre-booked appointment only. You can book your in person, or distance, Reiki session online HERE

Will I feel an immediate difference?

Receiving Reiki and/or the 13th Rote of the Womb is a powerful, yet deeply relaxing and soul soothing experience. Following your appointment, your heart, mind, body and soul will be nourished and refreshed. You may feel clarity in your path ahead and a greater love, respect and appreciation for yourself and others. You may also feel a stronger connection to yourself and the earth, and a powerful transition from clearing negative energy to confidence and peace.
