I found Shaun to always be sincere and have an interest and desire to help. He has high personal standards, vision and focus. The advice and guidance I have received from Shaun has been of great value and helped me grow as a person.

I decided to try Reiki on the recommendation of several people, to help with long term chronic fatigue, anxiety, depression and poor sleep. Shaun is a supportive and thoughtful, problem solving practitioner, he has made me feel at ease from the first treatment. Reiki has proven to be an amazing, life changing for me, Shaun’s treatments have not only helped with the previously mentioned symptoms but I have felt a great increase in my focus and physical well being. I definitely have more energy and an increase in my self confidence, self worth and at this time of using Reiki therapy my blood pressure has also lowered. I am getting better with every week that goes by. 

I also took both the Shoden and Okuden Jikiden Reiki training courses at the same time, taught by Shaun over three days and found them to be extremely informative and enlightening, it gave me a great sense of self belief and the energy generated throughout the days was very powerful. I found Shaun’s explanations of the history and the techniques of Jikiden Reiki easy to understand, his teaching style is very straight forward. I find him to be extremely knowledgeable and passionate about Jikiden Reiki.  I have found new direction in life and look forward increasing my abilities as a practitioner."

I'm not entirely sure how it works but I understand the principle of Reiki and can certainly feel the positive benefits of my Reiki treatments with Shaun. My treatments are always relaxing, calming and hugely energising and I find Reiki helps me in both my personal and professional life. Since starting Reiki treatments with Shaun I feel more positive, can handle demanding situations and stress easily, and make decisions with clarity and confidence. I would definitely recommend Shaun to anyone juggling the demands of a busy life!

"Having received Reiki from Shaun for some time and told him about my issues with poor sleep and tiredness, I undertook his sleep programme.  It was a really useful and interesting investigation, and opened my eyes to all the different aspects of life that can influence sleep (spoiler, its almost everything!)  We looked into diet, exercise, blood sugar, sleep routines, bedroom temperature, stress management, and many other things.  Tweaking my routine along the way.  One of the biggest improvements came from a counterintuitive step that I won’t give away.  I found the programme really helpful and have enjoyed better sleep ever since."

"After each Reiki treatment with Shaun the relaxation seemed to grow, my sleep improved, I found myself much better able to respond to stressful situations. This reduction in my stress levels has helped reduce my previously daily headaches significantly. I don't understand why Reiki works but I know it has made a difference to me."

“After a long, arduous search for a Reiki tutor, a series of 'synchronicities’ led me to Shaun. Contacting Shaun was simple and he happily supplied lots of useful informative materials, this enabled me to make an informed decision to learn Jikiden Reiki with him. The atmosphere was warm and welcoming and I felt at ease straight away. Shaun is a knowledgeable teacher and is able to simplify the content . Its been amazing and I have had immediate effects."

"I have found Jikiden Reiki treatments with Shaun very beneficial, something has shifted on a very deep level, some of my treatment sessions with Shaun have been profound and life changing. My days were full of stuff to do and I could barely see the wood through the trees. In a short period of time I have changed my life around. Life seems to be flowing in a calmer direction now. I will continue to have Jikiden Reiki treatments with Shaun as I know there is more to be released.

"I am an experienced Reiki professional who first learnt Reiki over 15 years ago, and have since taken Reiki training to high levels with various styles of Reiki and teachers. I would highly recommend learning the authentic Japanese Jikiden Reiki with Shaun, even if you have already been trained in modern Reiki. It will enhance your knowledge and understanding of original Usui Reiki. For me it answered many questions about Reiki that had come up with other Reiki courses. Both myself and my clients have noticed differences in my Reiki treatments since taking Jikiden Reiki training. I also enjoy meeting other Jikiden Reiki students at the regular Reiki student workshops that Shaun runs for Reiki students."

"Before working with Shaun, I felt overwhelmed by the amount of ‘stuff’ I thought I needed to do. Shaun helped me to recognise patterns of behaviour that prevented me achieving a balance in my life. It has given me the confidence to make changes and made me appreciate the importance of self care.

I felt the benefits of Receiving Reiki form Shaun from the very first treatment. The immediate effect was a deep sense of relaxation, with more lasting effects of improved sleep, more energy and a calmer, more positive outlook."

Having previously trained in levels 1 and 2 of Usui Reiki, I became interested in learning the traditional Japanese methods. I trained in both Shoden and Okuden levels with Shaun. The courses were informative and enjoyable. I find the practice of Jikdien Reiki to be more straightforward. I feel that I have a better understanding of Reiki and I have also found that the energy in my hands has increased. The student workshops are a great opportunity to receive Reiju and also to give and receive Reiki in a friendly and sociable environment.

"I took Jikiden Reiki Shoden (beginner) and Okuden (deeper level) courses together with Shaun. The courses were amazing, How Shaun teaches is very informative and nothing is rushed, he takes his time to explain everything step by step from beginning to end. Jikiden Reiki is now part of my life, I find it gives me peace and I feel free from anxiety. The classes were small and intimate, the treatments were out of this world, I've never experienced anything like this before, a total life changer!"


Natalie Hale: Tamworth

"I was sceptical about trying Reiki, as I an anylitical and scientific in thinking, however having Reiki with Shaun has helped me to relax and gain focus at a particularly hectic and stressful time in my life. I felt mentally lighter and physically relaxed, yet energised. I now worry less about the hows and why of how it works and just enjoy the relaxation and increased focus I gain from it".

"Receiving Reiki from Shaun has been a wonderful gift. I have seen improvements in my mood, Reiki has helped me become more patient, calmer, happier, less stressed and better able to cope with the demands of my busy life. Having now learnt Reiki I can also share this gift to help my family as well. "


Graham Wendes: Coventry

"I wanted to explore more about Reiki from what I had witnessed from this powerful healing art. I was looking for a Reiki practitioner with the undiluted origins of traditional Japanese Reiki. I contacted Shaun who impressed me immediately with his straight forward and completely non 'woo-woo' approach. I happily signed up for a block of Reiki treatments with Shaun. I experienced a number of emotional and physical responses, none of which was expected, I am now instigating the changes in my life that have been on hold".

I was looking to learn original Japanese Reiki and found it. The Jikiden Reiki Shoden course was excellently paced and relaxed. I've met many self-proclaimed "Reiki Masters" I found a mixed bag (Master being a word that no-one of Japanese origin would ever apply to themselves). I developed a very acute nose for BS, and became more cynic than disciple. Shaun didn't come across as a pretentious spiritual guru, rather as an intelligent thinking man who impressed me immediately with his straightforward approach. I feel very fortunate to have discovered Jikiden Reiki with Shaun."

jikiden Reiki treatments with Shaun have changed my life in such a positive way. I feel better both physically and psychologically. The powerful Reiki treatments have halped me process past traumatic emotional and physical abuse at such a deep level. The pain and fear was accessed in a non verbal theraputic manner. This has helped my self esteem, trust and relationships, helping me develop a healthier mind, body connection. I believe Shaun has a natural gift. I strongly recommend a series of Reiki treatments with Shaun for anyone who has experienced traumatic abuse".

“Having had a life changing experience during a series of Reiki treatments with Shaun, I enrolled on Jikiden Reiki training courses. Our small group of students were from all walks of life. Shaun made the courses interesting, empowering and fun too. I am already receiving positive feedback since my training. I fully recommend Shaun as an outstanding teacher, who has a calming nature".


Steve Barker: Sutton Coldfield

"I was previously trained in Reiki level 1 and 2. I was intrigued to learn Jikiden Reiki, so I trained with Shaun. I found the training offered a much deeper level of understanding of Reiki. I feel both the perception and energy in my hands has increased following Jikiden Reiki training. I have a greater level of understanding of Reiki, gained new techniques, even the traditional japanese certificate is outstanding. I thoroughly enjoyed the course and would recommend anyone interested in Reiki take Jikiden Reiki training if you have previously learnt Reiki or not."

"I had some coaching with Shaun and I highly recommend him. I was stuck in life, I didn't know which way to go, with Shaun's help I am now on track again. What I liked the most was that he truly listened to me and the sessions were tailored to my needs, therefore I could get the most from the coaching sessions. It helped me develop and improve things in my like in a gentle but powerful way. Thank you"

"Shaun's teaching style on his Reiki training courses was excellent. It was very straight forward and easy to follow. He was very helpful, experienced and made sure everything was understood".


Elizabeth Edgington- Wolverhampton

"I feel grateful for finding Jikiden Reiki, as before the training when I was looking for Reiki courses I was not aware of the differences between what is taught in Jikiden Reiki and other Reiki courses out there. I now feel I have the correct foundation of Reiki knowledge and practice to build upon. Shaun came across as very knowledgeable, professional and friendly. Learning Jikiden Reiki has been a delightful experience, thank you Shaun."


Debbie Stockdale: Rugby

"I recommend learning Jikiden Reiki to anyone interested in learning Reiki, or for those who have learnt Reiki previously as you will gain a deeper understanding of Reiki. The courses are excellently delivered, very informative with lots of practical experience and knowledge given. I can't imagine my life without Reiki now."

“I wanted to learn Reiki to help me to deal with stress and anxieties. At first it was mainly for my own needs but after attending the Reiki Jikiden Shoden training I felt that I could try and support my friends and family. Reiki gives me the peace I was always looking for. It helps me to release stress and anxieties.  Shaun is a fantastic teacher. He is very calm and friendly. The training he provided was very informative. He made it very interesting and fun. Being able to practice during the training was very beneficial and helped with my confidence.”

I have been receiving Reiki from Shaun on a regular basis and I find his treatments to be very powerful. My Reiki treatments are helping me heal from long held emotional trauma.

Reiki is a powerful healer which has influenced my life in many positive ways and I would advise people to try Reiki, as I believe it could benefit everyone in some way."


Kayla Rees: Sutton Coldfield

"I came to see Shaun with chronic low back pain, during the Reiki treatment he was able to relax my back spasm, I felt a sense of ease and relief. We continued Reiki treatments where Shaun worked on my low back, as well as some emotional trauma I was going through. Over recent months Reiki has supported me and helped with my emotional well-being. I feel more intuitive and Reiki helps me clarify my thoughts and reduces my stress levels. Shaun always takes my needs into account and he also summarises his findings at each treatment. I have now also learnt Reiki with Shaun so that I can self treat to further support my results. I consider my experience with Inspire Reiki to be life enhancing. Reiki is now part of my lifestyle."


Stuart Kane: Birmingham
(Reiki treatments & Reiki courses)

"Working with Shaun has helped me recover from longstanding fatigue, and heal past emotional trauma. Reiki is not to be under estimated, it can change your life". I had been receiving Reiki treatments from Shaun for some time so his suggestion of learning Reiki for myself would appear to mean that he was doing himself out of a client, however Shaun's philosophy is to put the client's needs first and empower you to grow personally. The Reiki course exceeded all my expectations. I came away from the course with a very powerful tool kit to help me combat life's ups and downs. I experienced Shauns relaxed teaching style and a positive energy that was infectious."


Sara Johnson: Leicestershire

"I have attended numerous Reiju Kai (Reiju meetings) and Koryu-Kai (Reiki Share meetings) as well as undertaken a repeater in Shoden with Shaun. I have found the sessions invaluable to reinforce my knowledge and understanding of Jikiden Reiki. Shaun offers professional and informative coaching in a relaxed and friendly environment.  It is also great to spend some time with other Jikiden Reiki practitioners and of course to give and receive a group Reiki session - which is just an amazing beautiful experience."


Anne Cholmondeley: Sutton Coldfield
(Reiki treatments, Reiki courses & Reiki workshps)

"I first tried Reiki with Shaun to see if it could help me reduce my stress levels and calm my active mind. My Reiki sessions are some of the only times my mind switches off. My sleep has improved and I have also seen reductions in my stress levels. Shaun is a very calm and non judgemental professional. I thoroughly recommend him." 


Pippa Cope: Sutton Coldfield
(Reiki treatments)

"I had a very traumatic year and felt low and lacking in confidence. I contacted Shaun and immediately found him to be a very accomplished professional who exuded a calm and gentle manner. Every Reiki session is measurable, relaxing and uplifting. Having this time centred on me has lifted me emotionally. I recommend Reiki wholeheartedly. There is no need to be concerned about understanding it. It is an empowering experience leaving you feeling positive, invigorated, peaceful and ready to face everyday life."

Philip Ayres: Walsall

"I attended the Jikiden Reiki Shoden (beginner) Course with Shaun. He delivered the two day course with professionalism and humour. Each step of the way was supportive and made it a joy to learn. There was a great atmosphere as well as a depth of content on an academic side, with a wonderful understanding of Japanese Reiki practice. I was so impressed with Shaun's teaching that I booked straight onto the Okuden (second level) course. This was a one day course, but for me it seemed more intensive as I learned more about Reiki Therapy with deeper techniques. Shaun has an innate desire to help others. Thanks again for being a great teacher"
