Amanda McDermott




Before becoming a Reiki Teacher, I previously held operations and management positions within a variety of industries such as insurance, PR, further education and finally as a director of a contemporary art gallery.

Throughout this time I had an interest in Reiki. I first qualified in 2001 and gave treatments to friends and family. When I took a break from the business world to have children, my work as a Reiki Practitioner and Teacher began.

I fully understand the stresses of being involved in business, running a family and trying to keep all those balls in the air at once! I enjoy being able to treat clients to help them cope with their busy lifestyles.

As well as offering treatments, I also run courses in the UK and internationally to teach Reiki to individuals for their personal well-being or to those training to become practitioners. I also produce Reiki Candles which are individually infused with Reiki energy to provide a calm, balancing environment at home or work.

I am a fully initiated Reiki Master Teacher, a Crystal Reiki Master, and Master member of the UK Reiki Federation.
I hold full professional indemnity insurance.
