Reiki With Counseling

Dear William, I am a licensed professional counselor and marriage and family therapist. I am having great success using Reiki in my counseling practice. I always send Reiki during my sessions, which helps my clients to be more relaxed and centered. And using Reiki to prepare the space in the room and then clean it up after a difficult session is valuable too. Due to ethical and legal issues, I prefer not to do a regular Reiki session with hands on my clients. Instead, they remain seated in a chair. My greatest success is with Reiki Aura Clearing, which I call Psychological Clearing in counseling and learned in the ART class taught by our Center Licensed teachers. I have had several clients with major issues such as depression, anxiety, sexual abuse, and chronic relationship problems that have cleared within one or two sessions using this technique. I had been seeing some of these clients for months in counseling without this much improvement. I will continue to explore the use of Reiki in my counseling sessions and would welcome hearing from other therapists about their experiences.
