Meet the Team!

Usui Reiki Academy Surrey was established in 2016 by Amanda White, Usui Reiki Master/Teacher. Committed to respecting the original practice of Reiki Ryoho, we endeavour to uphold these values with integrity. The most important part of our work is to ensure all get the highest level of care and standards of teaching. This is always from the heart, with the highest intention. 

Witnessing the journey of all who use our services, is, and always will be, a privilege. This is the ethos shared by all who provide services with us.  All in our Usui Reiki Academy Surrey family, feel they have found a purpose and every day feel so grateful for the work we have been guided to, and to be guided to each other.
All who work with Amanda are wonderful practitioners in their own right. Dedicated to their personal reiki journey, they practice daily and strive to continue to grow on this life long spiritual path. All also receive regular mentoring with Amanda. 

"I am so very grateful to have such a beautiful and supportive reiki family! I am so blessed that reiki has brought us together" - Amanda White

"I am so grateful to be able to do the work that I do! Sharing this beautiful and often life changing practice with others is truly my passion and purpose!"

Spending most of my life interested in and learning about life's mysteries. It has truly been a journey of self-discovery, with many twists and turns to the story which have all finally led me to Reiki and I couldn't be more grateful, or privileged to be able to witness all who have crossed my path since. 

The journey and the deep awareness the practice provides is never ending, as we are all life long students, with infinite opportunities to experience and grow!

I like to teach in a relaxed style so that everyone can feel fully at ease but maintaining the structured traditional methods and disciplines. I have researched and continue to learn, about the system of Reiki and it's roots over the years and regularly update my courses should new information arise to keep them as up to date, authentic and as accurate as possible.

So now for the credentials!....I am a certified Usui Reiki Master/Teacher member of the UK Reiki Federation and I am also a registered member of the CNHC. Qualified in both traditional Usui Shikki Ryoho and Usui Reiki Ryoho, I am able to trace my lineage in an unbroken line, back to Mikao Usui (the founder of Reiki) on both Eastern and Western sides.

I also hold a Professional Reiki Practitioner Diploma which fully complies with the Core Curriculum of Reiki set by the Reiki Council and is approved by the UK Reiki Federation. This is the highest professional standard currently available for Reiki.

I have a dedicated treatment room at my home in Bookham, Surrey and under the current guidelines can still perform in-person treatment as a member of the CNHC. I can also provide remote treatments. I teach in both East Horsley and Bookham and I am excited to work with The Clarity Therapy Centre in providing a non-residential Master/Teacher Course in Battersea, London.


What is a Reiki Lineage?

All practitioners and teachers, who have been trained in the traditional system of Reiki, should be able to trace their lineage all the way back to our founder, Mikao Usui. A Reiki lineage is basically a family tree in which everyone attuned to the traditional system of Reiki, will be able to trace back who attuned their Master and so on. A Reiki lineage is declared valid when it can be traced all the way back to the founder in an unbroken line. Attunements are an important part of the system by which Reiki is shared between teacher and student.


Before joining Usui Reiki Academy Surrey as an affiliated practitioner, I have for many years been on an amazing spiritual journey. Amanda has been a key element on this path and is a great inspirational mentor and spiritual guide.

We have found that in sharing reiki as a practice has enabled us to grow a deep loving friendship and our ethos with regards to the respect we share towards the authentic original practice of Reiki Ryoho, is deeply important to us both.

Our journey has now led us to be so fortunate to work together and share this beautiful practice with more people.

Having always been able to feel the flow of energy and working with the angelic realm for many years, I decided to explore the System of Reiki to understand and find a deeper awareness of what I was experiencing. It has and continues to be, the best thing I ever did, everything started to make sense! Through dedicated practice, I continue to experience that my conscious awareness is constantly expanding and since becoming a shinpiden (Master/Teacher) practitioner, I feel privileged to be in a position to share reiki in whichever way I am guided, with others.

For the last 20 years my profession has been in dentistry as a Dental Hygienist, which I still thoroughly enjoy but my passion for reiki and my love for horses has now steered me in a different direction.  

I live my life with a clearer and happier mind. It has changed, balanced and enhanced my life in many wonderful ways. I feel honoured to be able to share reiki sessions with people and I also specialise in equine reiki. Horses (and all our animal companions), are so very responsive to the unspoken energetic connection with all life. It’s so wonderful to be able to share this language with them and understand what they may be trying to communicate.

In my experience with performing a healing ritual, I am truly humbled to witness how reiki helps with releasing emotional and physical energy, and as reiki is holistic (working on all levels) it helps a recipient find balance in all areas. I feel, every session brings wonderful experiences supported with a high love vibration.

In addition to sharing reiki, my guides have recently assisted me to write courses in Energy Healing for Horses course and a Guided meditation course for beginners, both of which are available online, but hope that soon with Usui Reiki Academy Surrey we may develop an equine course based on authentic Usui Reiki Ryoho Teachings.

I work from my base in Tadworth, Surrey and have a dedicated treatment room which can be used when we can provide in person treatment but can currently provide remote treatment for those who wish to make an appointment. 


Trained by Amanda White at Usui Reiki Academy Surrey in all levels of Usui Shiki Ryoho and Usui Reiki Ryoho, I share the same lineage as Amanda.

I am an Usui Reiki Master/Teacher member of the UK Reiki Federation and I am a certified Equine Reiki Practitioner.
