Reiki III (teacher) Certificate is delivered via a 1-day workshop in Brighton, Sussex with 12 hours of follow-up mentoring which can be face-to-face in Brighton or online. You can start your Reiki III (teacher) 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.

  • The role of the Reiki teacher
  • Review of the Hui Yin
  • Tibetan symbols
  • The attunement process

  • Self attunement
  • The Violet Breath
  • Giving Reiju empowerments
  • Teaching skills
  • Teaching Reiki
  • Further meditations
  • Self-development

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.


As an intensive care nurse, I sought to advance and deepen both my knowledge and practice of Reiki. The advantage of one-to-one teaching is that you can move from where you currently are, no matter where you are with your development. The day proved relaxed and peaceful and it felt as though I was being handed nuggets of gold. Having contact with Laurel over a period of time means that you can check out your understanding as your experience grows. Also, prepare to be gently and supportively challenged with your ideas. By working with Laurel, my ideas about the symbols were challenged and the ways in which I explored working the Reiki broadened. Colin, acupuncturist, senior lecturer at University of Brighton


I have thoroughly enjoyed my Reiki III with Laurel; at times challenging, often subtle with learning unfolding in the most unexpected ways! Annette Street


Thank you for all your help and support during my Reiki 111 Teacher training. I found this level quite challenging at times, especially learning how to think as a teacher instead of as a student. But with your direction and help I managed to take the right steps, learning how to make lesson plans, hand-outs, helping a student become proficient, as well as the significance of Reiki attunements and how to pass on the knowledge with best intentions. The course content covered everything I needed to know to become a Reiki teacher. But as importantly you helped me manage the changes within me as this level definitely deepens how you feel about many things and how I wanted to impart my knowledge in the future. I am excited and looking forward to teaching Reiki to my first student this week. Without your help and support over the years I would not have been able to reach this very important goal in my life.Carole, Reiki III Teacher
