The UK Reiki Federation's directory of practitioners and teachers provides individuals with a range of options for receiving Reiki, and for training.
However, for those who plan to work within the NHS it is recommended that the training they receive meets the full recommendations of the CNHC (Complementary & Natural Healthcare Council) which makes references to the National Occupational Standards for Reiki.
Many of our teacher members will be working with these standards, but we also have available a Directory of Approved Courses, which are courses which have been checked and verified that they include the recommended training standards.
Training to the standards is optional and teachers themselves can decide what courses they wish to offer, in the same way that the student can make their own decision on the type of training they wish to receive.
The UK Reiiki Federation Directory of Approved Courses lists two types of courses; Professional Practitioner Courses which meet the current minimum recommendations for professional training, and those which are suitable for CPD (Continuing & Professional Development).
