Our Reiki Sessions Have Resumed, in Line with Government Guidlines and the Easing of Covid-19 Restrictions!
A Warm Welcome to our First Blog Post of August 2021!
Greetings from Patricia Foster McKenley. I deliver Reiki therapy via my mobile Reiki service and am based in south-east London. You are probably reading this blog, due to being a current or previous Reiki client, or someone who has previously expressed interest in receiving Reiki treatment from me. You may be someone seeking to feel less stressed and more relaxed, or just curious about what Reiki is.
At the end of May 2021, with the easing of Covid-19 restrictions and strictly following government guidelines, I delivered my first Reiki therapy session using PPE. Ensuring complete safety for both my client and myself.
On entry to a client’s home, I will wear a mask.
During the Reiki session, I will wear a mask and shield.
I will use wipes and hand sanitisers wherever possible.

Is your child emotionally sensitive and slightly overwhelmed by the school learning environment?
Does your child require an educator or education environment which holistically supports their emotional sensitivity?
Is your child labelled ‘shy’, ‘introverted’, ‘misunderstood’ or even ‘disruptive’?
Does your child become over stimulated and agitated by busy surroundings, preferring a calmer, relaxing, more sedate learning environment, supportive of their emotional needs?
Does your child have any unrealised creative gifts or talents and need a empathic educator to help them realise their potential?

As individuals, we are ALL created uniquely beautiful. Some of us have gentle dispositions and are therefore misunderstood. Some of us are extremely sensitively wired and are therefore misunderstood. Some of us will NEVER fit into the mould of acceptable looks, or acceptable past times. It’s about having patience with and being accepting of others, instead of demonising them…because they are not like you!
“Speaking out against harsh, critical words may be a huge challenge.”
Some of us have not developed the communication tools to express our thoughts or feelings, so may have difficulty in responding to harsh words or criticism, or are unable to articulate the inner pain connected to these harsh words. Speaking out against harsh, critical words may be a huge challenge.
Some of us may feel unsupported, because we are unable to find the right person to express our innermost thoughts and feelings to, without the fear of our expressed feelings being thrown back in our faces.
There is a saying “hurt people hurt people”. Research has shown that those who are unhappy within, or are in pain themselves, may sometimes lash out or bully others, therefore hurting their intended target too.
I performed poetry at a recent ‘Loose Muse’ women’s writing event and a courageous young lady shared her own, deeply personal experiences of being bullied and subsequently wanting to take her own life. She mentioned also that in the area of south London where she resides, suicides among teenagers, in particular GCSE and A Level students were at a ridiculously high number. This was not just due to the pressures of life, but also about how some are made to feel by harsh comments and treatments by others.
I recently read a Facebook post, which outlined the final Tweet posted by a young man, tormented over the years about his sexuality. He was commonly referred to as “a loser, freak and fag” and used this to describe himself in his last Twitter message. He felt he had done the world an injustice and therefore took his own life.
Without the right support and understanding from others, when will people cease to remove their inner pain, torment and feelings of being misunderstood by taking their own lives?
Some of us will never be accepted, because we are moulded and act differently.
How can those of us who are emotionally stronger step in to help prevent bullying and help support and encourage those who are being bullied or misunderstood?
In my coaching, workshops, talks, as well as through my writing, I have focussed on this, as I have also been bullied and victimised by others. I therefore choose to use my art and holistic and well-being tools to help stand up to this. Writing and coaching can be useful ways to express pain, as well as feel accepted and valued within.
