  • How does Reiki work across distance or under lockdown settings?
    This is a fantastic question! In short, nobody quite knows. However, it seems to make sense to me. Let me explain why... Reiki is energy. Everything is made of energy. So, everything is connected. Yes, there are still parts of the medical community who scoff at Reiki, but this is changing! In America, scientists in the field of quantum physics are starting to garner tantalising data and evidence around Reiki; enough for a small, but growing number of hospitals to start incorporating it into their care programmes alongside more traditional practices. I believe that we are living in incredibly exciting times; we're beginning to see a lot of the old ways, traditional practices and forgotten skills slowly resurfacing in mainstream society and take their rightful place alongside 21st century medical practice. Personally, I have shared Reiki with friends and clients around the globe since 2020 and we have all felt its warmth and experienced its incredibly powerful and beautiful healing. You can see what some of my clients said here. If you're still not sure, why not try it for yourself?
  • How do distance Tarot readings work?
    In my experience, as with Reiki, time and space have little effect on the strength or accuracy of a Tarot reading. I have read for friends and clients from the West Coast of the United States to Australia and have received truly wonderful feedback. In fact, my first reading during lockdown was for a client in Albania. She said she was shocked by my accuracy! While a Reiki practitioner uses a set of specific techniques to connect with a remote client, we tend not to do that in Tarot, although each practitioner will have their own preferred ways of working. However, in my experience, the connection is equally strong in both settings. I strongly believe (as do many associates I've discussed this with) that intention is key to establishing a strong connection with a client and delivering a truly accurate and valuable reading.
  • I'm interested, but not sure."
    That's totally understandable! Until you have had a reading with an authentic and skilled Tarot consultant or experienced Reiki with an adept practitioner, you may well be skeptical. This is why I like to offer short, quick consultations as well as longer more in-depth readings. If you find that none of the options on offer are quite right for you, please don't hesitate to drop me a line and we can have a chat or messenger exchange about what might work best for you.
  • What is Reiki?
    The word “Reiki” comes from the Japanese words “rei” meaning universal and “ki” meaning energy. Reiki is a form of energy healing. It works along similar priciples to acupuncture, but without the need for any physical contact. Reiki has been around for thousands of years, but in its current form was first developed in 1922 by a Japanese Buddhist called Mikao Usui, who reportedly taught 2,000 people the Reiki method during his lifetime. The practice spread to the U.S. through Hawaii in the 1940s, and then to Europe in the 1980s. You can read more about this on my Reiki page. The body has many intricate energy meridians or pathways, along which our energy or ki flows. There are also energy points or centres, larger and smaller and you may have heard these referred to as "chakras". We each have seven main chakras in our physical bodies. Each of the main chakras governs certain aspects of our lives. When we experience trauma or disease, a Reiki practitioner will sense the block and flow in energy and work to clear said blockages and restore the natural flow of energy. This is important as energy can stagnate in the body where there has been physical injury or possibly emotional pain. In time, these energy blocks can cause illness. As a result, Reiki can enable relaxation, reduce pain, speed healing, and reduce other symptoms of illness.
  • What is Tarot?
    The Tarot is a symbolic map of consciousness that encompasses our journey through life, both spiritually and practically. The origins of the Tarot are unknown, but it is generally agreed that it really took off in Europe in the mid 15th century. However, some schools of thought say it's roots go far deeper. Readings are done with a Tarot deck, usually made up of 78 cards. There are variations, but typically, a deck is divided into two halves; the Major Arcana and the Minor Arcana. The Major Arcana are numbered 0 through 21, starting with The Fool, and ending with The World. These cards align with the milestones of life’s story or The Hero’s Journey. The Minor Arcana are divided up into four suits, very similar to a traditional deck of playing cards. These suits are: Coins (or Pentacles), Swords, Wands (or Staves) and Cups. Each suit has cards running from Ace through to King and relates to a different aspect of the human experience. A Tarot reading can offer up wisdom and guidance through a specific spread (or layout) of Tarot cards. However, contrary to popular belief, the cards do not simply tell your fortune, and one does not have to be a psychic to give Tarot readings. The cards are meant to provide insight into the innermost truths of your higher self. I like to think of the Tarot deck as a mirror; yes, it shows us what's on the surface, but it also let's us see a little more; it shows us what is passing and what is coming up, what is influencing us or what we might want to work on. In other words, the cards provide an evolved awareness of what you already know deep within.
  • Do you offer face-to-face appointments?
    As the world returns to 'normal' (whatever that ends up being!), I am conducting the majority of Reiki treatments and Tarot readings remotely. However, if you have a strong preference for an in person reading or treatment, or have any specific concerns, questions or requirements, please don't hesitate to get in touch and we'll see what we can do. Once the world opens back up more fully, I will update this website with details of my face-to-face availablity and booking options.
  • Is a distance Reiki treatment or Tarot reading as effective as in person?
    Yes! But this is a very valid question to ask! A lot of clients and practitioners really did wonder about this when the world went into lockdown back in early 2020. However, practitioners still needed to practice and clients needed our services, perhaps more than ever before. As I've said elsewhere on this site, I believe that everything is made of energy, so everything is connected. However, nothing prepared me for the strength of connection with clients during distance readings or treatments. Some clients have even said it was their most powerful experience to date!
