Altruistic Reiki


WELCOME and thank you for taking an interest in my complimentary therapy website.

My name is  Meryl and I have been interested in complementary therapy for over 40 years. I am a fully qualified and registered Reiki Therapist and BFRP Bach Flower Practitioner.  My therapy room is based in the enchanting Cwmcarn valley, surrounded by the beautiful forests and fresh air of this area in South East Wales.


I have been involved with Mind Body and Spirit profession since 2005, originally selling Tibetan dharma artifacts and home wares, meditation aids and aromatherapy oils, with an interest to make easy access to these items for others with a similar mind and to support mental health improvement in the west.  I needed to keep the ethos of being a fairly traded company, so traveled to India, so that I could purchase top quality items at a fair price and import these myself. 

More recently I qualified as a Usui Reiki therapist, originally working on friends and relatives, then starting up my own practice in Newport.  My interest in reiki brought me read "Light on the Origins of Reiki" by Tadao Yamaguchi, in which it explained how the original unadulterated teachings were still practiced in Japan, by a few select therapists.  Of course I had to follow my intuition and retrained in 2021 with my Japanese teacher.  Reiki never felt more natural that it did with my new found skill set.

Along the same time as retraining I finally fulfilled my desire to learn more about Bach Flower remedies, I spent three years taking each of the three levels of the Edward Bach course.  I am now a fully qualified BFRP Bach Flower Practitioner, registered with the Bach Centre UK and have the skills to offer clients their own personal bottle of up to 6 remedies.

What are Bach Flower remedies?

The philosophy of Bach flower remedies, is that we are more likely to heal if we are in a positive  emotional state. Edward Bach discovered 38 plant remedies that each relate to our feelings and can help take us from the negative emotional state into a more positive one.  Each remedy has a list of emotions that it relates to, rather than a set symptoms and I have been trained to help you make decisions on which specific remedies would help you.  The remedies can be safely taken with other medicine and they are completely safe for children and pregnant mothers too.



Reiki is helpful with Fibromyalgia sufferers, within a pain management regime.

What is Reiki?

Reiki is the Japanese art of energy healing. The word Reiki means Universal Energy and is pronounced Ray-Key. It is a non-intrusive therapy, where the practitioner will place their hands on the person to channel the healing energy. The technique is said to create relaxation, promote healing and wellbeing. It is a complimentary therapy and not a substitute for traditional medication or treatments.

The reiki session is given fully clothed in a quite environment, using a therapy couch.  The session can be done in a chair if the client prefers. The client should wear comfortable clothing and remove their shoes for the session.

Therapy appointments can be made for daytime & evenings to suit.  Some sameday appointments can be made if time is available.  I am able take same day appointments if I have a convenient space.
