Many people consider Reiki the simplest, purest, most solid and robust healing system on the planet; because Reiki can be used alone or in conjunction with other healing vibrations without those other vibrations changing or altering the purity of Reiki, or Reiki altering them.  In this capacity there is no equal.  Using Reiki alongside other healing methods has been shown to consistently benefit and further support the person receiving healing.  If you become attuned to Reiki (see Learn Reiki page), you can use it simultaneously with QiGong, Yoga, playing sports, putting the kids to sleep, writing important documents, visiting the dentist, relaxing, meditations... any time any place anywhere!  It is not religious, but it is spiritual.

Worn out, out of balance, need a lift?  Maybe you'd like to lift your spirits, silence a chatterbox mind, relieve anxiousness and stress...  Well, Reiki can help you, as it did me.  You could quickly connect with your inner self, stop a debilitating habit, think more positively, or you just want to feel better and have higher vibes every day with regular reiki treatments.  Reiki treatments could be a fast track to connecting with your true, authentic, wondrous self.  You can also use it for healing spirit attachments (tell me what you need when you book) or clearing a space from low energies.  

Holy Fire Reiki is  a lovely energy, a very high vibration of energy direct to you (not through me) from source/god, strong, kind, calm yet invigorating. 

Reiki supports your whole being  -   physical, mental, emotional, spiritual.

Anyone can benefit from Reiki treatments, at all ages.  Not based on any belief, faith or suggestion, scientific research using quantum physics is starting to help us to understand how Reiki may work to benefit the individual. One day it may be known simply as energy medicine based on scientifically measurable energy emitted from the healer's hands.  It does not require a meditative state; you can simply relax and allow Holy Fire Reiki to work its magic. 

Reiki is good for your inner smile!

Our natural state is Love, Joy and Peace

  -  yet our minds sometimes affect our emotions which in turn create pain in our bodies and stress in the head.  My work is to promote Love, Joy and Peace within, despite what's happening in our heads, bodies or the outside environment.  Holy Fire Reiki works so well that you'll begin to notice things like difficulties resolving themselves, more fortunate events happening in your life, greater love, appreciation and happiness and personal fulfilment, at one with your world.

For decades, we have been taught to focus on the positives yet, for some, it is often difficult to ignore the negatives.   Holy Fire Reiki nurtures and encourages development of our positive qualities - we feel an uplifting flow of healthy, life-giving energy, greater joy, love and happiness.  Our positive qualities will be validated, strengthened and developed; qualities such as patience, endurance, healthy well-being, honest, dependability, determination, courage, vision, clarity.  Belief in oneself, ambition, imagination, kindness, sympathy, loyalty, co-operation, independence, accomplishing goals, trust in the higher power, and faith that the universe is working in our favour.  Our positive qualities are part of who we really are, our authentic self, and when we focus on them and dwell on their value and feel grateful to have them - they grow.  Our negative aspects are the result of injuries experienced, often unhealed, often developed into personality traits that are detrimental to us.  Because they are part of an injury, they are not parts of ourselves!  They are false images of who we really are.

Holy Fire Reiki

is smart and aware of how the mind works; it knows what you're doing, and why.  Because of this, your positive qualities immediately become more powerful and effective, and the Holy Fire energy automatically begins healing your negative parts without you needing to think about them.  Holy Fire Reiki enhances your positive qualities and heals your negative qualities at the same time.  It allows you to be immersed in positive energy, which makes life more enjoyable for you and yours.  Because you're not thinking about the negative parts, they cannot lower your vibration nor feed off your energy: instead, the Holy Fire Reiki heals them independent of your conscious mind.  "Simples!" 

Every illness, condition or malady has a 2nd heaven spirit whose purpose is to complicate the situation and make it difficult to heal or release an illness, condition or malady.  Some 2nd heaven spirits need to be released from a person; they are not guides but are spirits holding you back or taking advantage o f you in some way; they usually connect to a person through parts that are out of balance3 or need healing.  Holy Fire guidance comes directly from the 3rd heaven, making it pure and of a much higher quality, bringing with it a greater potential for development.  The unhealthy spirit will be taken to a place where is cannot harm anyone, and will be given the opportunity to heal itself.  The part of you that allowed the spirit attachment to take lace will also be healed (by Holy Fire Reiki)  thus preventing another unhealthy spirit from taking the place of the one that was released.  Tell me when you book that you would like a Healing Spirit Attachment session.  


I have been practicing Reiki since 2003 and became a Reiki Master and Teacher in 2016 and took another Master course in Usui/Holy Fire II in 2018, upgrading to Holy Fire III in 2019.  I'm a member of the UK Reiki Federation, CNHC (Complementary Natural Healthcare Council, England), and Reiki Membership Association. 

Reiki literally translates from Japanese as Universal life force energy.  This system of healing was developed by Dr Mikao Usui in the early 20th century in a form that we can easily use, although Eastern medicine has for thousands of years worked with this energy, recognising its flow through all living things.  It has been taught and used in Europe since the late 1900s.  Holy Fire II is a modern addition to Reiki energy, allowing you to receive direct from Source/god/Holy Spirit/the highest heaven, rather than through the Practitioner; thus it is untainted, unlimited and purely divine.  Scroll down page to read about the  Science of Reiki.

What to expect from a Reiki treatment

Reiki is given fully clothed, usually with shoes off, at best in a calm environment.. You can lie on a massage bench or the grass/earth/beach, sit, or even stand for a Reiki "shower".  You might feel deep calm, coolness or heat in certain areas, inner peace, self-love, forgiveness, empathy, groundedness, connected to source energy and all that is; pain might vanish, ego can diminish, creativity and imagination unleashed, your mind might sort out thoughts at superfast speeds and then clear itself of thoughts...  all this and more has been reported by people who who have had Reiki.

You can also become attuned at my Reiki Courses so you can give reiki to yourself and family; or become a Practitioner or even Teacher.   

Reiki for Children

Reiki's beneficial effects are numerous: it heals fear and anxiety and promotes feelings of safety, calmness and a healthy sense of well-being.  Reiki helps children develop self-confidence, the ability to get along with others and improves learning ability.  It is soothing and promotes the healing process.  It keeps kids healthy and less prone to imbalances and if they do get sick, it helps them deal with illness and recover ore quickly.  It can also be a universal solution to many childhood difficulties including just not feeling well.   

Children usually need much shorter treatments than adults, and babies may benefit from just a minute!

Children who have received Reiki before and after birth are more open and caring towards others and tend to be peace-makers among their playmates, playing fair.  They benefit from the knowledge that there is something beautiful inside themselves which can heal and help solve problems and provide guidance during difficult times.

Reiki sessions are especially beneficial for women during pregnancy as it helps both the mother and the unborn child.  It also increases relaxation, decreases pain during childbirth and helps create a healthier delivery.

You can have Reiki treatments in person or Distant Reiki, and learn Reiki with in-person attunement courses in London SE24 (other locations on request), and on the French Riviera.  (Attunement courses not given in person by a Reiki Master Teacher are not recognised by the UK Reiki Federation and Reiki Membership Association.  You cannot be attuned over the internet!  Some people have done these internet courses and have subsequently come to me for an in-person attunement.

My mother's knee had swollen to twice the size of her other knee, and she was in pain. I gave her a Reiki treatment before bedtime; the next day she complained that she'd been to the loo a lot during the night... that was the water draining from her knee! 2 days later, I gave her 15 minutes Reiki and she later texted: "My knee feels good, even last night." The following day, she texted: "My knee has dimples instead of a big bulbous knee!!! Not much pain and am not taking paracetemol. Thanks again for the Reiki and I hope you can do it long-distance." Yes, Mum, distance Reiki is also possible.

Before her Reiki treatment, a lady told me that she was feeling overly emotional, tearful, sensitive, insecure, confused, stressed and slightly unsettled, tired, achey, with knee and hip pain. After the Reiki: "Feel much more relaxed, was actually able to empty my mind and drift a little, which doesn't happen often! Feel like I could sleep well (or better) tonight... feel quite tired!" Rest assured that reiki energy keeps on working for some time after a treatment.
"Thank you for getting rid of my unsightly ganglion on my wrist.  After over 10 years of hiding it with long sleeves, pressing it and bashing it with a book, your Reiki got rid of it forever after only one treatment. No need for the surgery the hospital offered, thank goodness. The ganglion's gone and my wrist is normal like the other one - and has been so for a few years now.  Thank-you, Kathy!"

At a Pamper Party, I gave 20-minute Reiki treatments in a quiet room.
"Most relaxed I've felt in 2 months.", "I saw lots of clouds, very wispy ones."    They also drank less alcohol at the party!  Mellowing effects all round!

The Science of Reiki 

Reiki as defined by the Oxford English dictionary is: "A healing technique based on the principle that the therapist can channel energy into the patient by means of touch, to activate the natural healing processes of the patient's body and restore physical and emotional well-being."  However, it is widely accepted that reiki can be given and received equally effectively hands-off or via distant healing - which means that I could send you reiki wherever you are on earth, at a time to suit you. 

REIKI in Japanese literally translates as universal life force energy.  This system of healing was developed and named Usui Reiki Ryoho in Japan, commonly combined as Reiho, by Dr Mikau Usui in the early 20th century.  It is a non-invasive complementary therapy that has been taught and used in the UK since the late 1900s, although Eastern medicine has worked with this energy for thousands of years, recognising its flow through all living things.  

Reiki supports orthodox medicine; reiki can be used alone but is not a replacement for traditional medication of treatments.  It is not based on any belief, faith or suggestion, yet scientiific research using quantum physics has started to help us understand how reiki may work to benefit the individual.  Perhaps in years to come reiki will be known as energy medicine based on scientifically measurable energy emitted from the healer's hands.

Research is producing very interesting results:

  • When giving reiki, practitioners have been shown to emit electro-magnetic or bio-magnetic energy from their hands.  The frequencies of the energy emitted vary from one moment to the next; many appear to correspond to those that medical researchers have identified as being the optimum frequencies for stimulating the healing process in tissues, bones and other body parts so far investigated.
  • The bio-magnetic energy, or field, flowing from a practitioner's hands has been shown to induce current flows in the tissues and cells of individuals who are in close proximity but this pulsing energy is not produced by non-practitioners of energy healing techniques.

Two ways in which these pulsing magnetic fields may stimulate repair of bone and other tissues include:

  • A cascade of reactions from the cell surface to the cytoplasm and on to the nucleus and genes where selective effects on the DNA have been documented.
  • Amplification, in which a single hormone molecule, neurotransmitter of photon of electromagnetic energy has been shown to trigger cellular responses; very tiny fields have been shown to produce the best effects, suggesting that living tissues are much more sensitive to external fields than previously considered possible.

Note: a bio-magnetic field can also be created by passing electric currents through living tissue as has been used for medical diagnoses and treatments for almost a century, eg. ECG and MRI scanning.

Reiki is often referred to as an intelligent form of healing.  Reiki may be valuable in the prevention and remission of some serious diseases that are so costly in terms of human suffering as well as expensive allopathic health care.

One theory is that energy healing works by opening up the communication channels that enable cells in the body to talk to each other, and  opening up the terrain through which cells are able to migrate to places where they are needed to initiate repair or fight disease.  Another is that these methods help to calm the person so their immune functions can operate smoothly.

Reiki is activated by intention and requires practitioners to calm their minds and thus open up their communication channels to understand where healing is most required on a body, and for how long, to care and help the person concerned.  

Visualisation techniques can also be embodied as an element of reiki treatments at a professional practising level, which also create measurable electrical and magnetic fields, enhancing its effectiveness.  As an NLP Practitioner for many years, you can additionally have specific meditations and visualisations to help you imagine your wishes and outcomes more precisely and clearly for better results; and forward-focussed coaching to aid your progress.

"Very good. Body feels energised; can feel my heart, feel warm, full."  (Man, felt a bit run down, physically weak, depressed.)
 I gave 10-minute Reiki treatments at Lambeth Country Fair (Brixton Therapy Stand).  A man returned 4 hours later to say, "It was better than Class A drugs" (he then told me that he was on methodone as a result of heroin addiction).  Could this be my best Testimonial yet?!


"Just for today..."

Just for today I release all worry.

Just for today I release all anger.

Just for today I honour my parents, teachers and elders.

Just for today I shall do my work with integrity.

Just for today I show gratitude to every living thing.

" I first met Kathy at her Zumba classes and was immediately struck by her smile. It made me think I want what she’s got!! I decided then to embark on some one to one sessions as I felt I needed some extra support in order to tackle some ongoing issues. My work is stressful and there are times when I find myself 'running on empty'; through Reiki, its been amazingly therapeutic, helping me to think more clearly. Sometimes we’ve spent sessions on planning and implementing strategies for helping me order my life, as there are occasions when I can be overwhelmed. I can always tell when I’ve just had a session as my approach is calmer and more productive. Perhaps the most surprising thing is that coming from a scientific background I was initially fairly sceptical. However I can highly recommend Kathy to anyone who wants a tailor-made programme to support them at different times.Thank you, Kathy. Yours, Olivia. "
