Reiki sessions last around one hour and cost £50.
Reiki – translated as universal life force energy - is a method of activating your own internal healing energy to release blockages that may have physical or emotional sources and which are resulting in physical symptoms of all kinds, low energy, depression, feelings of being out of balance or disconnected. Receiving Reiki treatments should help your inner energy, known as Ki in Japan, Chi in China and Prana in India, to flow smoothly, to those parts of the body that require it.
It is a completely natural healing energy activated by intention. On the physical level, Reiki can help to relieve pain and assist in the regeneration of organs and tissue. On the mental level it can promote relaxation, reduce stress, alleviate depression, loosen blocked energy paths and help to release the energetic impact of emotional scars. On the spiritual level it can help open the kundalini channels with the aim of accessing different states of consciousness, and union with the Universal Source, Spirit, True Self, One, God. Although it may assist in spiritual connection, Reiki is not a religion, and does not require any philosophical doctrine or belief.
The treatment is completely unique for each person, and your experience will be completely individual. Amongst other possibilities, you may fall asleep, feel as if you are dreaming, sense that you are leaving your body, feel emotional or cry, feel vibrations or contractions or pain in various parts of your body. All sessions are totally confidential and you can do or say whatever you want. We work in a space of unconditional love - everything is welcome as it appears in order to be seen, acknowledged and healed. It is your own inner energy and inner physician that is driving the healing process. You will not receive anything you are not able to cope with!
Reiki healing was developed (or some would say rediscovered) by Mikao Usui in Japan early in the 20th century. Originally it was handed down to a very small number of initiates or Masters. But in the last years of the 20th Century a number of Reiki healers felt that the earth needed as much healing as possible and decided to widen the number of those initiated or ‘attuned’ to the Reiki energy forces.
For further speculation on how it works, see my books 'Corporate Bitch to Shaman' and 'Temenos Touch' which investigate the science underpinning non-local healing.
Reiki Attunements last around 2 to 3 hours and cost £80 for level 1 (self-healing), £120 for level 2 (healing others and holding the therapy space for others) and £120 for the Master level (teaching others).
I give attunements only on a one to one basis to cater for each person's intentions, level of knowledge and experience.
Level 1 is for Self-healing
Level 2 is for working with others, so I now very clearly split the level 2 attunement into two sections. One part is pure Reiki - the hand positions, the meditation, the symbols, the attunement, and distance healing.
The second part is holding the therapy space in a safe way. I like to call this Reiki Plus and I believe it is an essential part of what happens when we are working with another. We are there as human beings working with other human beings. There is transference, projection, possibly judgement and certainly entanglement! Many clients have never experienced physical touch from the perspective of unconditional love, without physical or sexual demands. We are inviting what is held in the shadows to be revealed and then either integrated or released. We are inviting the system to express itself, whether that is through anger, grief, shame, disgust, rage, or even potential and magnificence!
Part of the healing resulting from this holding and seeing, client-therapist engagement, might be called placebo. For me that is not a derogatory statement. Placebos work. Fact.
So for me now a critical part of my Reiki 2 attunement process is to teach something about holding that client-therapist space. I am surprised by the number of people I meet who are Reiki attuned and have never been given any guidance on this. If this does not resonate with you, then please approach a different Master for your journey.

I would like to say a big thank you for the healing session a few weeks ago - you are an amazing lady. It's been quite a ride! Your healing and kindness has changed me for the better. Magnificent.
I just wanted to say thank you for your help and healing over the past year. The session on Sunday was very unexpected but I do feel even stronger and more excited about life! The sessions have made me realise that I am me again!
When I first met Evelyn I was very stressed and exhausted, emotionally and physically. Within the first treatment I felt hugely better. Amazingly, she immediately pinpointed my energy blockages without me telling her anything about my pains or troubles. This has been the case ever since. I am so looking forward to seeing her every time, she never cease to surprises me with her intuition and healing abilities. Her tranquillity and kindness is infectious and after every treatment I feel invigorated, recharged but also blissfully happy and calm as if I just spent a time with a most caring and giving friend.
I would love to recommend your services - they really have made a difference to my health and overall outlook on life - I feel comfortable and safe when you are treating me, and I think that's pretty important. Though I don't understand the actual mechanics of Reiki, I have no doubts about its beneficial effects in my life and would advise anyone to try it.
I first went to Evelyn in a time of personal and emotional turmoil and no with real concept what Reiki was about. . . since the very first session I have given up trying to rationalise my experiences and now accept and explore them -they have helped me find balance in myself, in my life and I feel in a better, less stressful place. . . my recommendation to anyone reading this is to try it with an open mind and discover for yourself.
Evelyn - I feel a lot better since seeing you for that amazing reiki experience. I've been trying to hold on to it and do some self-healing. I really do think of it often. I'm back at work which is still very stressful so I'm looking for other work. I've told a lot of people about my wonderful experience so you may have some people contacting you (probably stressed out social workers mostly.
Evelyn thank you so much for the Reiki session. I feel it really made a difference in releasing the “lump in my stomach” but also in softening my feminine energies.
It makes me feel very nice and has helped to relax me a lot. I now suffer from fewer spasms than previously caused by my spinal injury.
Last night got home feeling very spacey but had the best night’s sleep I've had in several weeks. . . today feeling much better.
I was new to Reiki, partially sceptical but open to new ideas. I enjoyed the session which was followed by good feedback and discussion about previous physical injuries and ailments that Evelyn detected during the session.
Just wanted to say thank you for my Reiki session yesterday. My head is definitely feeling much more calm and relaxed, and I had a brilliant night’s sleep.
