In the past two years the national Reiki Council, the governing body in the UK, have been revising the proposed guidelines for Masters wishing to train their students for professional Reiki practice as set out in the CNHC core curriculum. CNHC is an accredited register.                    
Prior learning will be recognised for masters who can evidence having ten or more years active teaching experience, especially if they have not undertaken any formal teacher training. This means that your Reiki Two students would be able to take this training with you to become a competent professional practitioner and have the option to not continue further to master or teacher training level, unless really called to do this at a later date.
The main criteria for the Course providing Masters will be:

  • They are CNHC registered themselves
  • They are familiar with the CNHC updated Code of Ethics.
  • They will preferably have a basic teaching certificate for adult education (Level One)
  • They will be willing to provide a course outline (syllabus) covering the CNHC core curriculum, mapping to the national occupational standards (NOS) designed for Reiki Level Two students and Masters who wish to work in clinical, hospice or other public settings. Corporate treatments are becoming ever more popular for example.

If you plan to offer this Professional Reiki Practitioner training to your students, we encourage you to take a course at your local adult education centre for a basic teacher training certificate, (12 weeks). This will help you map the core curriculum and learn about how to use effective teaching aids including additional modules which you may find on-line. Experienced teachers will also be offered other pathways initially based on evidence of prior learning.
Although Reiki Level One and Level Two are required for students wanting to do professional Reiki practice training, students can start the course at Level One but will need to have taken Reiki Two to complete their training. There will be no assessment of the Level One and Level Two part of the teaching as long as you can present an outline of what you have taught at each level.

Course providers will need to provide students with their full lineage details. We suggest that all masters give their lineage details to students when they complete their Reiki One class.
Please contact me if you would like further information. The overall cost of having your professional course assessed will be approx. £450.00
So what do you get in return?

  1. Once your course is approved, you will be able to fast-track your own students to CNHC should they choose to register, once they have completed the course to your satisfaction.
  2. Your courses, like our verified practitioners will be listed on our website for free. You can also be listed as a course provider on the CNHC website, and on the Reiki Council website.
  3. We are getting numerous queries from the public and various clinics looking for approved teachers for professional practitioners.
  4. You will receive Certificates from us and the national Reiki Council and the use of specially designed logos.
  5. Balens apply no extra charge for teachers to be fully insured on the discounted block scheme which all members are entitled to join, if you contact them and quote your membership number.
  6. Your training course will be assessed to level three, by experienced masters and teachers. Both the Reiki Council and the Reiki Association aim to support you in this process. The Assessors will be picked and trained from a pool of experts put forward by the member organisations to the Reiki Council, and will recognise and honour all styles of Reiki. 
  7. No site visits will be required.
  8. Once your course is approved, you will be responsible for your personal CPD (continual professional development) and there will be a three yearly review to ensure standards are maintained and that you have integrated any updates on legal requirements such as GDPR.

Please contact me for further information and to put your name on the list for the launch of this new initiative.
