I had been interested in Reiki for a long time and decided to explore it with Fay. I was sceptical whether I would be able to relate to it. To my delight I really could connect with it and feel its effect right away. Fay holds the space and helps everyone in a lovely way, an inspiring experience!

Frequently Asked Questions

I have no knowledge about energy I’m worried I won’t understand.
No previous experience or sensitivity with energy work is necessary. Reiki is designed to be simple to learn, accessible for everyone and easy to use. The lessons and exercises are easy to follow. You will have the opportunity to ask questions via the facebook group and during any live calls during the program.
Will this course help me work as an energy healer?
This is Reiki level 1 training which means it connects you with the flow of Reiki. This course will help you understand and experience the healing flow of Reiki, its origins and how it can be applied. The focus is on self-treatment and treating friends, family and pets. If you are seeking to take your training further and become a professional Reiki practitioner you will need a) an in-person attunement and b) to learn Reiki Level 2 training.
What if I already work with energy intuitively? Is this going to be too basic for me?
That's great that you are already aware of energy flow and might be sensitive to the energy of others and places. This course focuses on Reiki, so you will learn the system of Reiki, specific ways to work with Reiki energy and the origins of the system. Reiki is unique in that it is passed from teacher to student via an attunement. It will help if you are already sensitive to energy as you will pick up Reiki very quickly. The course may also provide focus for your intuitive energy connection and strengthen your ability as a channel.
I might need some extra 1:1 assistance, is this something you offer too?
Fay also offers one to one healing, mentoring and shamanic coaching visit or contact [email protected] for details.
How long do I have access to the course?
Lifetime access for as long as the course is running! You can access whenever you need to and also it's possible to download the content too.
I don’t have much spare time to study, how long does the course take?
Consider Reiki level 1 training as the beginning of a journey rather than a course. Each module is divided into short 20 - 30 minute sections so you won't find hours of video to watch in one go. The amount of time you take on the practical exercises is up to you. There is no rush. The Reiki journey is a practice so the time that you put into the connection and practice with Reiki will help you have a deeper experience and understanding of the energy. Students are encouraged to incorporate Reiki connection into their daily routine such as while lying in bed at night or in the shower, to make it easy to experience Reiki and feel confident. Practice, practice, practice!
What if I am unhappy with the course?
We would never want you to be unhappy! If you are unsatisfied with your purchase, contact us in the first 7 days and we will give you a full refund. A refund cannot be provided after you have experienced the Reiki attunement in module 2.



I'm excited to guide you on this heart centred journey into Reiki and find out where it will lead you!
