People have been coming to see me for Reiki treatments over the last 12 years at A Time For You Reiki and Counselling, Swindon for a wide range of difficulties, such as stress, worries, anxiety and panic attacks, sleep problems, low energy levels, headaches, aches and pains and much, much more.
Your Reiki treatment will be given to you in a softly lit, relaxing and ambient atmosphere during which you lie down fully clothed on a therapy couch and are covered over with a soft blanket. I will gently place my hands on your body on your energy centres (chakras) to rebalance them and improve the flow of your life force energy.
As I channel Reiki energy you will feel more and more relaxed and feel warmth from my hands in the areas that are being treated.
My clients find their Reiki treatments an enjoyable and very relaxing experience. They tell me on leaving, that they feel calm, more refreshed yet energised and with an improved feeling of wellbeing.
Why come for Reiki with Me?
When we are busy going about our daily and often stressful lives, our body is unable to repair itself and our immune system becomes compromised. So if you are feeling out of sorts, tired and drained or purely that you want to escape, unwind and relax and treat yourself to some "me" time, Reiki can provide the space and time to truly relax and therefore give your physical body a chance to repair.
As I am an experienced counsellor, I am able to listen and offer you help and support with any current or past issues that you may have whilst you are having a Reiki treatment.
If you are upset and worried about something in particular but it feels too daunting to sit and talk about yourself, your situation and your feelings, especially if you are already suffering with high levels of anxiety and stress, Reiki will calm and relax you and I can gently help you to feel safe and enabled to express what is on your mind.
If you have specific difficulties or you are feeling a bit stuck in your life but not sure how to move forward, I can help you to identify some changes that may be needed and Reiki may help to shift your energy so that you can begin to make them.
If you feel that you want to let go of difficult feelings you have been holding on to but you are reluctant to get in touch with them, during the session you may dip in and out of relaxing and talking whilst Reiki helps you to release negative emotions at an energy level and recharges your life force energy.
Reiki can help with physical pain too and can help with symptoms of illness such as fibromyalgia or chronic fatigue and is helpful if your are undergoing medical treatment as it can help to relieve side effects of prescribed medications such as chemotherapy.
If you are pregnant Reiki is great for both you and your baby.

How does Reiki Work?
We are alive because of the life force energy or "Ki" that flows within our physical body. Life force energy flows within the physical body through pathways called chakras, meridians and nadis. The chakras are spinning vortexes of energy which draw in the energy from our energy fields (the aura) and are responsible for storing, regulating and distributing our vital nourishing life force energy to the organs and cells of our physical bodies.
During our lives we hold on both consciously and unconsciously, to old painful memories, negative emotions, negative thoughts and faulty self limiting beliefs. These attach themselves to our energy fields and our life force becomes disrupted. Our chakras eventually get depleted and clogged and are unable to effectively distribute our essential life force energy flow which becomes blocked or weakened. This diminishes the vital function of our physical bodies and results in suffering discomfort, physical pain and illness.
When Reiki energy is channelled through my hands into you, it flows through the affected parts where any disruptive negative thoughts and feelings are attached. It charges them with positive energy, raises the vibratory level of the energy field and causes the negative energy to break apart and fall away gently. Reiki clears and heals the energy pathways, helping to release past distress and upset which have been held there, allowing the life force to flow more freely in a healthy and natural way so that you feel better.
Scientific research has shown that Reiki’s healing energy regulates injury, repair and recovery as well as a system rebalance and that the recipient's brainwaves move into the “alpha” sate (characteristic of a meditative state) which is why you experience a feeling of deep relaxation.
Reiki works in conjunction with all medical treatments.
I am an accredited and registered Counsellor & Psychotherapist with the BACP with over 14 years experience of working with individuals, couples and therapeutic groups in a variety of settings.
Counselling is always at the heart of what I do, but by incorporating other treatments and techniques I can offer my own unique combination of therapies to effectively help clients to feel better on all levels.

Combining Reiki with other therapies
People will often contact me because they have tried counselling in the past but they still feel as if their issues are affecting them and they are looking for another approach to help them or they are experiencing high levels of stress, anxiety and panic and just don't know where to start.
The amazing thing about Reiki is that as soon as it flows at the start of any treatment, your brainwaves naturally change into "Alpha" - a deeply relaxed meditative state. This safe and calm place provides an obvious starting point to begin to work on any emotional issues. From here, whilst Reiki is working to release negativity from the energy field, there are options available to me as an experienced counsellor and hypnotherapist to help clients understand and resolve their difficulties in the best way I can.
This may be through talking therapy or taking you into a deeper hypnotic relaxation where agreed work can be done behind the scenes whilst you are getting an energy boost from the Reiki treatment.
What I pick up energetically during the treatment I can feed back to you and help you to understand what you may be doing that is depleting your energy levels and empower you to make any changes that would help you to feel better.
Reiki also combines well with other the energy work that I do to release negative emotional from the energy field with such as EFT and Matrix Reimprinting as Reiki can help to re-charge the energy pathways and chakras in the body.
