Meet the Team

Our Board

Nicole Bennett
Director (Chair)

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.

Who is the real Nicole?
When I’m not seeing clients you can find me enjoying time with my family and friends, facilitating meditation by playing my crystal singing bowls or with my head deep in a textbook!

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.

Carol Macrae
Director

Dubbo, NSW

What do you bring to Reiki Australia?
I bring 23+ years of experience teaching and using Usui Reiki and energy medicine to heal my own life, and the lives of my family, friends, students and clients. I am also a Clinical and 5-PATH Hypnotherapist, a Komyo ReikiDo Master, a Touch For Health Kinesiology Practitioner, and have studied several other forms of energy medicine, including Theta Healing. I originally trained as a Registered Nurse, and also owned and operated several fitness centres, including teaching Tai Chi and Yoga for more than 20 years. 

Why did you get involved with Reiki Australia?

I joined Reiki Australia in 2011 as I was looking for an organisation that aligned with my values, to help spread knowledge and gain recognition for Reiki as a healing modality in the wider community.
I have seen the power of Reiki first hand when I was able to heal badly damaged knees healing my bone cancer and recovering from a double mastectomy and reconstruction. Reiki Australia are focussed on helping bring this modality into hospitals and the main stream as an adjunct to traditional medicine, and this is one of the things that drew me to Reiki Australia in the first place. 

I love Reiki Australia. Together we can make a difference!

Who is the real Carol?
First and foremost I love my family. We have 3 adult children and are also blessed to be raising our 5 year old granddaughter and assisting raising our 2 grandsons. I love to spend time with the kids baking, and teaching them life skills. 

I meditate, am teaching myself guitar, was a singer in a band with my husband for 15 years, and also have a black belt in Taekwondo. I love to do the super-sudoku on the weekends, enjoy the outdoors and my herb garden, and have a very busy Hypnotherapy and Reiki practice. Whenever I have a spare moment, I am studying mind-body healing techniques such as the Silva System, and even working on my psychic abilities with the Sage Method. I am a member of MindValley, and Gaia TV, and strive to stretch and grow myself, so I can be more effective in helping people in the work I do.
 
I believe that there is nothing we cannot do if we put out mind to it. There are no obstacles, only opportunities to overcome and grow our soul.

Operations Teams

Amy Squires
Operations Manager

Mosman, NSW

What do you bring to Reiki Australia?
I grew up with Reiki as the key to keeping our family happy and healthy. Having a background in Paramedicine I have a passion for helping others and while I still take interest in emergency services I have moved my focus to raising awareness of Reiki, its benefits and how others can get involved.

Who is the real Amy?
I moved to Australia to put an end to a lengthy long-distance relationship (we eloped and kept it a secret for 1 year!). I have a gorgeous pooch and am on a mission to end breed stereotypes.

Why did you get involved with Reiki Australia?
When I moved to Australia, I immediately recognized that I didn’t have the support or like-minded Reiki folk. Shortly after, I began seeking out a Reiki organisation with a friendly community and who were motivated in increasing the awareness and benefits of Reiki. After a few months of research, I attended a Reiki Share in Newcastle, which was hosted by Reiki Australia Members. It was then that I decided that I would apply to join Reiki Australia. It has now been almost 4 years and I have created, and continue to create, beautiful friendships and have been enjoying being a part of the growing organisation!
