About Shaun Mckeown
My Professional Background & Experience:
I have around 20 years professional experience helping people build their health and well-being, a lot of which has been in the field of coaching. I have also been teaching Reiki for 10 years and have a few thousand professional Reiki treatments under my belt. I have an extensive proven track record of results helping people in fields of building health, well-being, fitness, sports performance and healing. Helping people reduce stress, feel calmer, support emotional well-being, healing, improving sleep, achieve goals and personal growth. The focus of my work is quality and results.
I seem to have a gift with Reiki, it was completely natural for me as soon as I started on this path, I just seem to be able to help people on a very deep level with Reiki treatments, especially with emotional healing, I do not know why, it just seems to be this way and teaching Reiki is a natural extension of this gift which is supported my by background in coaching and teaching.
With Regards to my Reiki training background I was originally trained to teacher level and taught Usui Reiki (western teachings). I have since studied to teacher level and taught more modified as well as traditional styles of Reiki from prominent teachers from the USA, Europe and Japan. I have also trained in Jikiden Reiki (authentic traditional Japanese Usui Reiki) with Tadao Yamaguchi, the president of the Jikiden Reiki Institute, Kyoto, Japan, in which I have been granted the level of Shihan (full teacher) one of about 12 teachers in the UK to currently have been granted permission from the Jikiden Reiki Institute in Japan, to teach both levels of the Jikiden Reiki training.
In addition to Reiki, my professional background has been in the areas of coaching and teaching, with exercise coaching, personal training, holistic lifestyle and nutrition, fitness, performance coaching and sports coaching. I have a BSc.(Hons) degree in Sport and Exercise Science. I also have experience teaching martial arts, fitness management and as an infantry soldier in the British army, along with being a physical training instructor in the Army, as well now being an experienced Reiki teacher and practitioner.
A bit About Me:
I'm a calm, positive, determined person. I'm very creative, highly organised, with both strong intuitive skills as well as rationale thinking. Performance and personal growth have always been passions of mine, the superficial doesn't interest me at all. Ethics and integrity are also very important to me. My interests, or things I get involved with are things that create a strong positive impact.
Making an impact, contribution, social entrepreneurship, clever solutions to society challenges interests me, along with protecting wildlife and the environment. Children's protection, development and alternative education approaches being another interest topic of mine. I enjoy time with my family and have always been keen on sports performance and fitness. I was a competitive middle distance runner as a kid & teenager, on the track, road and cross country, then moving into martial arts competitions, and gym training, more recently I can be found out on my road bike, in the pursuit of the speed of sound and in denial that I'm not 20 years old anymore.
