How to self-heal with Reiki - an online Reiki course with Reiki Master Teacher Sophie Shaw

Learn Reiki online.


In-person training has resumed - but you can still get started on your Reiki journey from the comfort of your home.

How to Self-Heal With Reiki is a beautiful new online Reiki foundation course equivalent to more than half of Reiki First Degree.

You'll learn everything you need to know to use Reiki energy to heal yourself - plus get £100 off the usual price of a First Degree course when you're ready to complete your training in person.

"Sophie's instruction is beautifully presented, well thought out and easy to follow and her soothing voice is the cherry on top. Highly recommended" - Toni Wills

What is Reiki?

A beautiful, natural energy healing system founded by Mikao Usui in the early 1920s - Reiki is more popular today than it's ever been.

What is it used for?


All-natural, totally safe and profoundly relaxing, Reiki can be used to soothe, ease and heal virtually any difficulty - physical, mental and emotional or spiritual.

In my experience, it usually works on all levels at once.


Reiki training is designed to be beautifully simple and the powerful healing tools can be learned very quickly - usually in just a couple of sessions.

Anyone can learn and practise Reiki -

the training is easy, but the benefits are lifelong.

Sophie is one of the best Reiki Master Teachers around.

Her Reiki technique and healing touch are absolutely beautiful

Why learn Reiki?

  • take control of your wellbeing

  • learn a new skill

  • change your career

  • discover how to feel profound inner peace and calm - whenever you like

I've been a Reiki Master Teacher for over ten years, and it still manages to surprise me!

The extraordinary and profound healings are like nothing else. 

There is something so magical about empowering a new student with the beautiful, healing tools of Reiki and seeing them finally find peace.

Learning Reiki is the start of a healing journey that utterly transforms lives.

I'd like my clients to feel as safe and comfortable as I did with Sophie, I wouldn't hesitate to recommend her.

I can honestly say that it was a life-enhancing experience for me - Rachel Mills

Individual training that suits you


Learning something new can be a little daunting - that's why I teach one-to-one or one-to-two, if you want to train with your partner or friend.

With individual training, you get all your questions answered and receive personal guidance and feedback.

Individual training means you can complete each level in just 2 half-days, on any dates that suits you - you don't have to wait for a group course to start and you don't need to attend multiple ongoing sessions.

To legally practise Reiki as a professional in the UK, you need guild membership and professional insurance - this is only given when the training is done in-person

Sophie is an amazing teacher, mentor and friend.

I have been lucky enough to do all three levels of Reiki training with her and I would definitely recommend everything about the way she taught me, and the caring, knowledgeable and thoughtful way she shared her wisdom

- Sarah Wason

Why train with me?

Choosing a Reiki Teacher is personal - your gut will tell you when it's right.


I've been a Reiki Master Teacher for over ten years - in that time I've built an extensive private practice, as well as working for the NHS and practising as a hospice volunteer.


I've trained and healed hundreds of clients, patients and students


I've devoted my professional life to getting rid of all the mystical nonsense (no patchouli, bells or ancient curses!) and delivering Reiki in a no-nonsense, fluff-free way.

I will not blather on uselessly about things you don't need to know.


I'll get straight to the point and tell you what you do need to know:

What is Reiki and how do I use it to heal?

My teaching style is very relaxed and informal.


I like to create a no-pressure environment, where you feel very comfortable and at ease. That's how we learn best. 

I'll make sure that you feel confident in what you're doing at every level of training - there are no exams or tests, just easy practice and discussion until you feel sure of yourself.


And if you have any questions after training, I offer free follow-up email support to all my Reiki students - for life. 

Where are you?

All in-person Reiki training courses take place at my home practice in the quiet village of Mulbarton, 15 minutes from Norwich city centre.

Without exaggerating life-changing - and the Reiki, well incredible is the best way to explain it, so much so I am now being taught all the way to Reiki Master level - Steve Duncan
