Reiki Healing & Intuitive Guidance Sessions

Reiki comes from the Japanese words “rei,” meaning universal, and “ki,” which means vital life force energy that flows through all living things. Reiki is a hands-on, gentle, natural healing approach directly attuned to, and working with, the universal life force energy. 

How does Reiki work? 

The Reiki practitioner acts as a channel between the patient and the source of universal life; energy flows through the practitioner’s energy field and through her hands to the patient. (The energy does not come from the practitioner; rather it comes through the practitioner from the universal source.) 

What happens in a Reiki session?

During the session, following the completion of a brief health questionnaire, the patient lies on a massage table, fully clothed. The patient and practitioner set the healing intention for the session. 

The Reiki practitioner gently places her hands palms down on or just above the patient’s body in specific energy locations and uses a series of 12 to 15 different hand positions. There is no pressure, massage or manipulation. 

The different hand positions correspond to the seven energy centres located in the body known as ‘chakras’ (a Sanskrit word meaning wheel or vortex).

The patient may experience the energy received as heat, cold, tingling or pulsing where the practitioner has placed her hands. Sometimes, the sensations are felt moving through the body, or appear as images in the mind.

Most people feel very relaxed and peaceful. 

After the Reiki, the practitioner will share guidance on general self-care practices for after your healing.

In the two-hour sessions, the practitioner will also share any intuitive guidance which came through to her during the healing process.

What are the benefits of receiving Reiki? 

Although formal Reiki research is still in its infancy, a recent Researchprogramme concluded that “Reiki acutely improved physical and psychological symptoms associated with many health conditions, including affect, pain, depression, anxiety, tiredness, drowsiness, nausea, shortness of breath, appetite, and overall well-being."

What others say about their Reiki session with Helen


I really enjoyed my Reiki Healing & Intuitive guidance session with Helen, she really put me at ease and made me feel completely calm and open to getting the most from my healing. I was given all the information I needed. The reiki was amazing! It completely blew me away as I wasn't expecting to have such strong feelings of healing energy, warmth, and emotional sensations. It was also very relaxing and just a lovely way to take some time out for me to work towards being the best version of me, I can't wait to have another session." --Jo


" Wow. THANK YOU! I was right to trust Helen, and I am thankful to myself that I went with an open mind and open body into my Reiki Healing & Intuitive Healing session. It was beautiful and powerful and full of useful information for my ongoing healing. The information and guidance I received felt like a buffet on which I am still feasting a few days later. Information is power, and I feel very empowered now." -- Anja


Can Reiki replace traditional medical or therapy treatments? 

Reiki complements all other types of medical and therapeutic treatments. Reiki treatment should not be used as a substitute for consultation of a doctor, Psychotherapist or other medical or alternative health practitioners. Reiki can however increase the effectiveness of other types of healing. 

What conditions can be treated by Reiki? 

Reiki is not specific to any particular type of disease or condition. Because it works on the entire self – mind, body, and emotions – and because it is universal life force energy, it may be successful in all types of physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual healing. Pets and other animals respond positively to Reiki healing as well. 


About Helen 

I first began working with Reiki in 1999, when I was attuned by a Reiki Master to Level 1. In 2003 I was attuned to Reiki Level 2, and in October 2020 I became a Reiki Master with the Academy of Energy Healing. Using Reiki in my personal and professional life has been a profound and beautiful experience, always reminding me to work in alignment with the Spirit of life. I continue to work on myself to remove any blocks to love that I may be holding in my being, to enable me to be as pure a conduit for healing energy, life force and divine love as possible. As well as offering Reiki healing treatments, I also practice as a Creative Psychotherapist specialising in mid-life transitions, self-compassion, and Forgiveness. Click Here for further info!
