Reiki was a word that I had heard plenty of times over the years, but I had never considered what it really was or indeed the abundance of benefits it could evoke in me.
My first 'hands on' experience of Reiki was shared with me by my wonderful best friend when I was twenty seven. She shared this energy with me during a time in which was I recovering from a period of challenging emotions while taking the first steps in healing from Anorexia Nervosa, alongside a traumatic breakup from a partner. My energy levels were plummeting and my personal and professional life were suffering, at the same time, my loveless relationship with myself only amplified.
My best friend grew up in the Tropics of the Far East, where Reiki is a well respected and commonplace method for aiding healing of physical and emotional pain. She offered to 'give me a bit of Reiki'. I am infinitely and eternally grateful for her offer. She gently placed her hands on the back of my head while I was laying down. I felt an immediate sense of emotional relif that was warm, like golden honey in colour and wonderfully comforting. Something about this soothing energy felt like coming home.
My journey with Reiki has been a gradual one, and along the path I have risen up to meet the various challenges of PTSD and healing my physical and emotional ills. I am overjoyed to be able to share this healing and loving energy through being a Reiki practitioner.
A Little More About Reiki
Reiki is just one of the many offerings that Universe wants to bestow on us. Reiki can help improve our physical, emotional and mental health. In addition, we live in a society where being busy and burnout seem to be lauded social trends, so it seems even more pertinent for Reiki to be used as a method for slowing down, re charging our minds and bodies.
For me, one of the most important hidden benefits of Reiki is the energy's potential to reconnect us with our deeper awareness for how our bodies really feel and what they really need. This can help us attend to our genuine needs rather than compensating our depleted energy with more work, more possessions, more drugs and alcohol, more socialising and more social media.
Reiki helped me calibrate who I really am with what I really need. I want that for you.

"Sarah holds space beautifully. Her Divine Feminine workshop has put me back in touch with myself on a deep level. Attention to detail was intrinsic, delivered in a way that made me feel safe, closer to my spirit and Mother Divine." CW-Brighton
"I sought out Sarah as I was feeling completely mentally blocked. Deep down I knew the reason why but my session with Sarah helped to bring it to the surface and make me take action. A few days later I quit my job and as soon as I did I knew it was the best decision I ever made. Reiki with Sarah literally changed my course of life, for the better." SF- London
"I have had 4 sessions with Sarah. As well as being professional and attentive, she has a hugely calming presence which helps me relax into the healing. I always feel distinct visceral movements of energy during our sessions, and her insights afterwards are always pertinent and usually relevant to things that have not been discussed beforehand. Her intuition is very on point. Very grounding, and I can't wait to continue our sessions." TlP -London
