Rutland Reiki testimonials: Faiy Rushton

northants reiki courseAt Reiki Evolution we routinely ask our students to let us have their feedback about the training and support that they receive. We have set ourselves high standards and want to make sure that our students are happy with their training, and soliciting feedback is a good way of making sure that we are on track.

Below you can read testimonials from people who have attended Faiy Rushton’s Reiki Evolution Reiki training courses in Uppingham, Rutland.



“The course material is excellent, I especially enjoyed the historical content which puts Usui’s style of reiki into context. This Japanese ‘authentic style’ is what attracted me to take your particular course. I doubt whether I would have wanted to study a ‘western’ course, especially one based around treating other people. I see this as more self development after some experience of mediation, kung fu, tai chi and qigong at different periods over the past 35 years.
The course manuals and CD are very good I have read some other books covering reiki and I have generally found yours easier to understand and they are to the point. The live training was very good, Faiy was excellent and the course went well.”
Paul Davis, Northamptonshire, June 2014
  • “Very happy with the course content. Faiy did a great job of helping us all to relax into the day as well as covering everything we needed to. It didn’t feel rushed, or dragged out either. It all worked very well.
  • I didn’t really have any expectations of the course, having never done anything like this before. I attended with an open heart and mind, and I was very happy with the day.
  • Materials are very good, including the reference book, summaries, pictures and audio files. Couldn’t have made it harder to make excuses not to be able to do the homework if I’d tried! All very easy to understand and listen to.
  • Faiy is a lovely soul and made it easy to speak in front of the group, despite every one in the room being a stranger to me prior to the day. It was good mix of talking and practice, and I felt very at ease.
  • I can’t think of anything that would improve the course.”

Tanya Matheson, Lincolnshire, December 2018

What did you think of the course content?

“The course content was fantastic – thorough but yet relevant and interesting, and a pleasure to read and experience. A Reiki practitioner I spoke to, who has trained with a number of different organisations said the Reiki Evolution material was by far the most comprehensive she had come across.

Did the course meet your expectations?

It far exceeded my expectations – Reiki Evolution has made a big positive difference to my life already, in the short space of time I have come across it. I feel blessed to have discovered Reiki Evolution.

What did you think of the course materials (manual and CDs)?

Very good and thorough material, as per the comments above.

What are your comments about the live training, and your teacher?

Faiy was an absolutely amazing teacher. The whole day, from start to end was a fantastic experience and an absolute joy to have been a part of. It’s obvious Faiy has a teaching background – she made everyone at ease from the beginning and had a really effective and enjoyable teaching technique. I can’t thank her enough.

To put this in perspective, I was initially dreading the course as I have so little stamina, having been on fairly aggressive chemo every two weeks, from early October last year. This means I tend to sleep at least 2-3 hours + in the day. Therefore I thought I was really going to struggle (especially with an hour drive each way) but the level of relaxation and peace that the course gave me, meant this was no problem at all. I had much more energy than I usually have and was still enthused and full of energy (rather than fatigue) when I got home. Thank you Faiy.

How do you think the course could be improved?

Nothing at all springs to mind – it was a truly amazing experience. The energy in the room was unbelievable – I was buzzing when I left, and can still feel the affects now.

Kind regards and thanks to you both again.”

Mark Long-Leather, Warwickshire, June 2019

“I had an absolutely wonderful day with Faiy, I’ll be going to one of her reiki shares next weekend and I’m looking forward to more of her particular magic.

The day was quite special, one of my favourite Reiki days ever. Great discussions, interesting energy practises and wonderful Reiki experiences. The venue was good, a lovely space in a beautiful village. The course materials were superb. I love the way you write and explain everything so clearly.

I thought everything about the course was perfect. In fact I’m adopting your approach for my next Reiki I course, sending out the manual and reading in advance and just doing attunements and energy practises and discussions on the day. Much more effective use of time and I think everyone benefits.”

Paula Taylor, Leicestershire, July 2019

“I completed my Reiki Master training with Faiy Rushton last weekend.
By way of feedback, I thought the way the course was structured was excellent. Your instructions on how best to study were clear and concise, and really stopped me from feeling overwhelmed. The DVD was excellent – it made it so much easier to learn by watching. On the 2 day course, Faiy was fantastic – a great blend of learning and support. I really couldn’t fault my training in any way.”
Judy Hodgetts, Leicestershire, October 2019
“I really enjoyed the course and found it useful and interesting. It was a lovely couple of days. Faiy really helped me get the sequencing right and was an excellent teacher. She put me at my easy because i was a bit nervous about it. It was a brilliant two days and very fascinating.
I am looking to continue to practice this on my self. I am planning also to attune my daughter. I am not yet using it with other people.
I thought the CDs and course materials were very good and very comprehensive and easy to follow. I did Reiki level one and two somewhere else and hardly got anything and I found because of this I had forgotten a lot which was easy to pick up with your manuals. “Emma Graves, Northamptonshire, June 2022 “Reiki 1 – The course materials were great – good quality, lots of information presented in a logical and intuitive format. It was great having the audio files to back up the manual and helped me digest the information properly.

It was wonderful to have the understanding and to have practiced techniques such as Hatsurei ho before the live training day.

The day itself with Faiy was beautiful – uplifting, fun, powerful and very magical and special. The other students were lovely and I hope to keep in touch with them.

Loved it – now on to Reiki 2!”

Emma Tillyard, Nottinghamshire, September 2022

“Just completed Reiki 2 with Faiy. Very interesting, informative course.

Of course also practical: enough opportunities for hands-on practice. Faiy is very welcoming and puts people at ease.

The course materials are excellent: in depth, well written and interesting. I also liked the home study aspect as I like to learn at my own pace.”

Anna Forrester, Northamptonshire, June 2023

“I thoroughly enjoyed the reiki training course. It was a delight to be taught by Faiy Rushton who provided a welcoming, friendly home environment for us to learn in. 
She was kind, informative and helpful. I enjoyed hearing about her knowledge and approach to reiki, and also how she integrated the information into a discussion with us so we could all have input and ask relevant questions.
 She was a great mentor whilst over-seeing our practical hands-on reiki treatments and provided lots of useful advice. I was certainly inspired to develop my reiki further and I look forward to doing the reiki 2nd degree course.”
