    Hi Helen,

    I was wondering if you have any pland for further Reiki Level 1 courses? I am unable to attend the one at the end of this month but would like to undertake this in the near future.

    Also, I am struggling to find reputable accredited crystal healing courses in the nottingham area. Can you make any recommendations?

    With kindest regards,

      Hi Anna
      Thanks for your message.
      I’m planning to hold my next Level 1 course some time in May. I’ve made a note of your email address to contact you when dates are arranged but if you want to email me some time, I can send you further course information. My email address is
      I know what you mean about lack of Crystal Healing courses in Nottingham. I’ve been asked this question before. I did my course at UK Holistics in Grantham, which are now called A-UK I think. If you do a search on google, you should be able to find them. Good luck!
      Kind regards
      Helen Shortland
