Would like to thank you so much. I really enjoyed the course. Carole is such a gifted teacher who has a very warm personality and is excellent at running the course. Very informative regarding history with opportunity to ask questions and plenty of hands on work. All I can say is a big thank you to Carole and students Karen and Ann for making it a lovely weekend and I am looking forward to achieving Level 2. Thank you.

I love my Reflexology sessions – its an hour of complete relaxation with physical and emotional benefits lasting for weeks. I go every 4-5 weeks just to keep everything balanced and in tune.

I would rather see Carole than see my GP. Carole has helped me especially with Migraines and after an operation when scar tissue was tender she somehow made it go away. I know that if I have any problems I just ring Carole and she will sort it out as she has done for years.

Carole Dawson the course tutor is passionate about Reiki and this comes across in her teaching, as she has great depth of knowledge in this field. The course was well constructed, informative and the delivery was excellent. The atmosphere was friendly and encouraging. I look forward to attending further courses with Carole.

                                                                                                                                                              Anita Harris

Having had great benefit from Reflexology following a family bereavement and impending hip replacement surgery 5 years ago, I had no hesitation in contacting Carole 20 months ago, when following the death of my Father and deterioration of my physical health, emotionally I was unable to cope.


Reflexology offers me an alternative to stronger medication. I find it complements conventional treatment and supports me to function in a demanding and professional capacity. I am now able to function with a maintenance treatment every 3-4 weeks, however I would not hesitate to increase the frequency of treatments if I felt it necessary.


                                                                                                                                                        Val (Darlington)

When I was a full time carer for my very disabled husband, I felt as if I had the world on my shoulders.  Through my local carers centre I was introduced to “Alternative Therapies” in particular Reiki. I couldn’t see what on earth this particular therapy could do for me, but after my 1st session I felt as if I had just been reconnected to the mains!.


I still don’t  understand what or why it makes me feel so alive and relaxed but it has been so effective that nearly 3 years after the death of my husband I still go for regular “top-ups”               


                                                                                                                                             Esla (Newton Aycliffe)

I thought that we were made welcome in nice setting for the course and that we were well looked after during the two days. The atmosphere created engendered trust between participants.

The course content was thoroughly covered in an unhurried manner. There were lots of opportunities to ask questions and we left feeling that we could contact Carole if there were any further questions after the course.

The course materials were good quality and relatively clear and easy to understand.

We were skilfully guided into the practice of Jikiden Reiki with clear instructions and corrected appropriately as we practised the techniques.

We experienced  the power of Jikiden Reiki during the course and came away with an inspiration to practice and to build our personal capacities to channel Reiki.

Thank you for an enjoyable, informative and empowering experience.



I have been having Reflexology treatment from Carole every 2 weeks for 3 years now. I would almost certainly recommend Carole, the benefits and feeling of wellbeing are second to none.


                                                                                                                                       Ann Thubron (Darlington)

I was a bit anxious about being able to keep up with the others as I am 86 years old. It was fine and I managed very well. The instructions were clear and we were not hurried it in any way the teacher was patient and clear throughout. It was a very pleasant experience.

                                                                                                                                                           Jean Dawson

I have just finished my first Jikiden Reiki course last weekend and found the history of it very interesting and the Reiki it's self was very powerful. I was very excited to start practising straight away and looking forward to the next course with Carole who made the whole experience easy and enjoyable.

                                                                                                                                                        Ann Emmerson

Having recently completed Jikiden Reiki - Shoden and Okuden, I can honestly say that the whole experience has been life changing. I cannot thank Carole enough, she has been amazing, as was the venue at Aske Stables.
I feel physically, mentally and spiritually uplifted and myself, family and friends are already feeling the benefits.

                                                                                                                                                                                 Susan Raine
