Our Board

Louise Riley
Chair + Executive Director

Sandringham, Melbourne Victoria

What do you bring to Reiki Australia?
A great passion for Reiki. I also have a wealth of experience teaching and giving Reiki treatments professionally.  I have completed Reiki training to Master Level in four types of Reiki, this enables me to bring an understanding of the breadth and depth of Reiki. My professional experience as a Registered Nurse and Educator gives me an understanding of both healthcare and education on many levels.


Why did you get involved with Reiki Australia?
With Reiki we hold a precious and immensely useful gift to humanity and the world. My hope and wish is that we can continue to raise community awareness of Reiki as a powerful effective complementary healing modality that can have a place in everyone’s life. I see Reiki Australia as a wonderful organisation that can help to achieve these things and more.

Who is the real Louise?
I love sharing time and beautiful food with my loved ones when I’m not seeing Reiki clients or teaching Reiki.  I’m the one who often suggests Reiki as a possible solution for just about everything. I have a great love for the plant kingdom, be they in my garden, during a walk or visits further afield.

Nicole Bennett
Director

Redlands, Brisbane QLD

What do you bring to Reiki Australia?
I bring a strong commitment and passion for Reiki and as a Clinical Nutritionist, to the Natural Health industry as a whole.  It’s very important to me to encourage the advancement and recognition of Reiki within the wider community.  In this position I aim to bring fresh ideas, perspectives and work to support the team in propelling the association forward.

Why did you get involved with Reiki Australia?
As a member I was very impressed with the association.  I observed a high level of professionalism, support and guidance matched with an innovative and progressive outlook.   These qualities are what I believe Reiki needs to expand into the broader population, mainstream healthcare settings and to be acknowledged for the incredible healing modality that it is.

I’m a definite mix of logical, analytical and scientific thrown in with a very deep spiritual connection. I also have an enthusiasm for traveling and exploring other cultures that’s been with me since a young age.
