Reiki II Certificate is delivered via a 1-day workshop in Brighton, Sussex with six hours of follow-up mentoring which can be face-to-face in Brighton or online. You can start your Reiki II at any time and your workshop/mentoring can be during the week or on a Saturday.

Attunements are the Western way of awakening the Reiki energy. The Japanese approach is different. In Usui’s day, a simple, elegant connection ritual called Reiju would have been used and this is what I use to connect you to the Reiki source. Reiju is the same in its form at all levels and is a lovely energy dance, rather like following the flowing form of Tai Chi or QiGong. It does not use mantras and symbols and does not change with different levels. Reiju is given repeatedly during the time we work together and is not a one-off practice.

I do not teach standard hand positions for healing, rather I teach you to develop the ability to use your intuition to guide to the right-hand placements. This style validates your own subtle awareness and encourages its development. It also allows you to develop a working relationship with the Reiki energy and thus be guided by its potential.

IMPORTANT: Reiki was originally intended to be facilitated on a 1:1 basis with students, and this is the way I teach Reiki.


Reiki II opens you to the physic and intuitive levels. This level qualifies you as a Reiki practitioner and introduces you to the practice of distance healing.  We cover:

  • Working with the mindbody link
  • Meditation practice
  • Introduction to visualization and guided imagery
  • Introduction to counselling & helping skills
  • Setting up and running a Reiki practice
  • Hands-on Reiki healing (couch and chair – Reiki II symbols and techniques)
  • Distance Reiki healing (Reiki II symbol and techniques)

I am based in Brighton, Sussex.  Buses go to either end of our road and there are two train stations nearby.  On-road parking is pay and display.

There are places to lunch in nearby as well as two parks with cafes.  While we work in the healing room, you are welcome to enjoy our woodland garden during your lunch break.


I came to Laurel having completed Reiki I and after receiving a series of treatments, decided to learn Reiki II with her. I wanted to build on what I had learnt at Reiki I and explore the Reiki symbols. However more importantly I wanted to find out more about the principles of Reiki and how they could be part of my own spiritual development. I didn’t want to encounter all of this learning over one weekend and the prospect of engaging with Reiki II over a period of time was extremely appealing. I saw Laurel once a month for a year, for two hours each time, where we explored Reiki II together. This method of learning suited my particular learning style. Laurel was reliably always at the end of the phone or only an email away. She is very supportive and considerate of where you are on your journey and she always offers an excellent blend of teaching. Laurel is extremely flexible and what I particularly like about her is the fact that she leaves you free to decide what you want to spend your time with her doing. This may vary from receiving a Reiki treatment to simply talking! Clare T.


After completing Reiki I, a friend of mine recommended Laurel to learn Reiki II from. As soon as I met Laurel I knew she was the right teacher for me. I have learnt so much from her, much more than I expected. Laurel is an excellent teacher, very thorough and easy to understand. One of the nicest things about the course is the flexibility and the fact that Laurel is more than happy to give you, the student, a Reiki treatment. The support is ongoing, even after completion of the course. I would recommend Laurel to anyone wishing to learn more about Reiki. Jan
