I am a Reiki master and practitioner with over 20 years of experience giving Reiki treatments. Ever since learning Reiki, I longed to see Reiki treatment acknowledged in health care.
I am very proud to be the first student that undertook the new nationally accredited qualification, Cert IV in Reiki Treatment Practice. So now that I have credible accreditation I feel that I have equivalent status alongside practitioners in other accepted modalities.
I got so intrigued by all the stories I heard about Reiki and the people I met that worked with Reiki that I decided to take the First Degree Reiki course, just out of curiosity.
That was in December 1994. In October 1995 I took the Second Degree Reiki course and that was it.....I thought. I enjoyed Reiki and practised it on myself, my friends and family and our cats. But in 2001 there was this inner voice and calling of becoming a Reiki teacher. So I started a 15 months apprenticeship which I completed in May 2002. I am trained in the Usui System of Reiki Healing ' Usui Shiki Ryoho. I teach and practise the Usui System of Reiki by honouring and maintaining the system which is passed on through the direct spiritual lineage of Mikao Usui, Chujiro Hayashi, Hawayo Takata, Wanja Twan, Inger Droog, Werner Mulder, Mies van Hoorn, Gerard Visker to Annemiek van de Kamp.
I work from home as Reiki teacher and work at Mercy Palliative Care to provide Reiki treatments to palliative patients.
Reiki brings me luck, tranquillity and trust.
In difficult and troubled times it restores my balance, it helps me determine my purposes in life. It has changed my inner vision and therefore my view on life. My life is caught in a flow and I decided to go with the stream.
Reiki showed me the way and took me on a great journey to Australia.
