Reiki sessions last around one hour and cost £60.
Reiki – translated as universal life force energy - is a method of activating your own internal healing energy to release blockages that may have physical, emotional, mental or spiritual sources and which are resulting in physical symptoms of all kinds, including stress, low energy, eating disorders, sleeplessness, 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 through the release of stress and trauma. On the mental level it can promote relaxation, alleviate depression, loosen blocked energy paths and help to release the energetic impact of emotional scars. On the spiritual level it can help us to access different states of consciousness, and get a glimpse of our connectedness with Universal Source or Spirit. Although it may assist in spiritual connection, Reiki is not a religious practice, 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. We work in a space of unconditional love - everything is welcome as it appears in order to be seen, acknowledged and healed. You will not receive anything you are not able to cope with
I find Reiki to be particularly effective for people suffering long term chronic illness and people suffering from severe dissociation from their physical bodies. In both these cases, a Reiki Level 1 Attunement is often appropriate, so that you can engage in self-healing. I do not encourage co-dependency - I want to give you tools you can work with yourself.
Level 1 (self-healing) £100 and a duration of around 2.5 hours
Level 2 (healing others and holding the therapy space for others) £150 and a duration of around 3 hours. 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 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 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. It is essential that this is done in a safe space for the client. 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.
Master attunement (the ability to attune others) £120 if you did Level 2 with me, £200 if you had a different Level 2 Master, as I will revise what I teach in Levels 1and 2 before allowing you to use my lineage for Attunements with your own students. Duration between 2 hours and 4 hours.
I give Attunements only on a one to one basis to cater for each person's intentions, level of knowledge and experience and if you are considering coming to me as your Reiki Master for an attunement, I ask that you visit me for a healing session first so that we can meet and you can experience how I work.

'I don't think I can quite put into words the impact of our meeting today. It was simply incredible. The feeling of energy rushing through my body for the rest of the day left me quite speechless. I am incredibly keen to continue with the level 1 attunement.'
'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.'
'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.'
'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.'
