To express how David has transformed my life is no mean feat. I arrived at David’s not fully intending to have a Reiki session. I had heard great reports from a woman I knew who had done a course with me. The reports were so great, my interest was piqued. I arrived to meet David and that is where my story begins.
Briefly, in the past I have struggled with panic attacks and feelings of crippling fear. At one point in my life I was contemplating if there was any reason why I was on this planet. It was a daily grind and looking back I was merely existing, not living a full life. I was oblivious to the talents which lay buried within. I was dealing with my issues through various methods- nutrition, complementary therapies and trying to change the inner tape of my subconscious mind. I was seeing tangible results but however much I tried, I seemed to reach a point where I couldn’t go beyond. I felt I was nearly at my destination but not quite, its elusive vision in the distance.
David escorted me to this destination and now I perceive a view which could take your breath away.
My first Reiki session was so peaceful, the mental chatter soothed and nurtured into a state of calm and tranquility. After, when I got back to my house and the days that followed, I could visibly notice the change in myself. The next day I was asked to speak in front of a class, previously this would have paralysed me with fear. The transformation was so extreme that I even found myself enjoying, yes enjoying, being the centre of attention. It was undeniably a transformation. I could now be the orchestrator of my own life.
The second treatment was profound also. I will fully admit that I have never in my life reached such an oasis of calm.
David is a skilled, humble man. He is compassionate and it is transparent that his empathy channels run deep and are fed from only a want to help others. In the time I have met David, I have discovered the joie de vivre again, I have the untainted enthusiasm and energy of a child. The glazed view of the world, the fears, the worries have all been shown to be incompatible with the new life I lead. I feel such love, so much joy in life now. I am rediscovering passions I had forgotten. I am living.
David and the Reiki have shifted energy blocks which I never thought would shift. I am proof that Reiki works, the energy that surrounds us all can be such a nurturing source. Thank you, David.
G McH, Belfast.
thank you so much for the wonderful experience called ‘Reiki’. They say that what’s meant for you won’t pass you by.
Unfortunately some people don’t recognise the signs and miss out on some of life’s wonderful gifts.
I’m glad I followed my strong intuition leading me to you. It was a truly enlightening experience.
Many, many thanks.

PS. Look forward to second degree!
Dear David & Dorothy,
Words cannot fully express the journey I have been taken on since David taught me Reiki. I must say, as I walked through the doors on the first day, I had no idea what Reiki was…..However, I knew from that first day something special had happened! I left feeling calm and assured that this was what I had been searching for….for me and my future clients.
I thank you David, from the bottom of my heart for giving me this ‘incredible gift’ & I trust & pray that everyone who I have the pleasure to treat/ heal will benefit from Reiki.
Now, none of this would have evolved if I had not met Dorothy through work. Dorothy, an enormous thanks for all the beautiful food and hospitality during the course and for guiding me to study Reiki with David.
I would like to leave you with a special prayer/thought from an Angel book I have. As I venture out into the big, bad world to treat clients, I believe this will bring on work:
‘Dear God, Holy Spirit, Ascended Masters and the Angels
I ask that everyone who would receive blessings from my
therapies be guided to contact me today.
I welcome new people and opportunities into my life
with open arms. I am willing to release any negative thoughts,
patterns or beliefs that would lead me to sabbotage new
opportunities. Please help me to know that I deserve
good now. Thank you.’
David & Dorothy, thank you for everything.
Health and Happiness, Janice XOXO.

David & Dorothy,
Just a quick note to say thank you for all your time given up to help me using your wonderful techniques & beliefs. I do believe that the treatments you gave me definitely helped.
Thank you for your kindness and thoughtfulness throughout my illness.

When I heard about the Kokoro Treatment (Bowen Technique..ed.) I did not know what it was. I was unable to walk any more than about 20 yards without having to stop because of excrutiating pain. My spine had collapsed onto my sciatic nerve and trapped it. I can now walk over 200 yards slowly, without the pain stopping me. I still use my stick, but I am well pleased that the treatment has helped me.

KOKORO REIKI SCHOOL
I must say it was a great pleasure and honour to have done my reiki i & ii with David. David is passionate about reiki and follows you up closely following each reiki attunement. I literally had no idea what reiki was until i walked in the door a few years ago and after the first day i knew my life would never be the same. Davids passion for reiki is contagious and this has certainly led to my absolute passion for reiki healing. I still phone David and his wife Dorothy for advice and pass on stories of great healing through reiki. Both David and his wife offer a very warm welcome and ensure that you are well looked after. Keep training and healing people! For enllightenment jan
I first made contact with David through the Kokoro website, which grabbed my attention as it was truly informative but with a real warmth. As an holistic therapist I had considered training in the art of Reiki but it was only when I discovered Kokoro that I felt ready to go for it. I met David & Dorothy (& splodge…the cat) last weekend and immediately felt “at home”. I had a wonderful two day training course for level 1 and I hope to continue to level 2 very soon. I was very priviledged to have one to one training, on this occasion, and David put 100% into it. Dorothy provided a great lunch and we shared many stories and ideas. I would highly recommend Kokoro to anyone wishing to study this fascinating art.
Kokoro School of Reiki Healing
David is a very dedicated teacher who is in touch with the true essence of Reiki. At Kokoro you will be welcomed into a very warm and relaxed atmosphere which makes you feel at ease whilst learning this wonderful healing technique. I have recommended Kokoro to many people who have never failed to be very pleased with David and Dorothy’s services. Keep up the good work!
I undertook Reiki level one with David as i was compelled to find out what Reiki was all about. David was a wonderful teacher that made me feel very relaxed and confident in giving a Reiki treatment, so much so that i went on to do my level two!!!! The support didn’t end there!!! David is always on the end of the phone if i have a question or need advice and support!!! Watch out for Dots wonderful Soups!!!!
THE place to learn Reiki
I did the Reiki Enhancement course because I wanted to increase my knowledge of reiki and feel confident in giving reiki treatments. David taught me how to use a range of techniques and he allowed me plenty of time to practice. The course was of great help to me and I am now confident enough to set up my own reiki treatment service. David also offers a reiki support group which is fantastic because it offers a chance for ongoing development and meeting with like minded people.
KAIZEN ENHANCEMENT COURSE.
I came across David’s enhancement course after a good friend informed me of her intent to attend, after speaking to Dave and reading the information on it on this site, I knew this was a course I could really benefit from. Thanks to the universe for providing the finance to enable me to attend. I was made very welcome by both Dave and his lovely wife Dorothy….whose homemade soup is to die for, it was like home from home. I was fortunate to be able to attend this course with my friend, and although there was only the 2 of us, what was experienced that weekend was amazing, I dont think it would have been the same should other students have attended. Dave is a passionate teacher and totally dedicated to the best teaching of reiki and it shows!!! my clients have really noticed the difference since I attended the course and I feel alot more confident carrying out treatments since my weekend of training with Dave. I feel nothing is coinidence and people come into our lives for a reason…All I have left to say is I am glad David and Dorothy came into my life and I look forward to doing my Reiki Teaching when the time comes.
Love and Light,
Naomi G Richhill.

Face Book message from Peggy Bell :
Small world – just took a call from a lady who was looking to speak to my ex-colleague and got chatting. She is an OT and does complementary therapies. When she mentioned Marie Curie I thought I’d do a quick plug for your Reiki teaching with Marie Curie nurses; turns out she was one of them, Margaret? Anyway, just passing on good word of mouth, she spoke very highly of you and had a strong appreciation for your excellent knowledge base from research and tangibly powerful dedication. Just thought I’d pass it on as everyone enjoys a good review!
Dorothy I discovered you at a time when we were contemplating pregnancy. Both my husband and I attended the hospital for preliminary investigations but I felt strongly that I wanted to approach this aspect of my life from a more natural way. I came to you and you welcomed me, you have such a warm and understanding way with you. After 6 sessions of Reflexology I was pregnant! I was elated. I attended then for Reiki until I reached 12 weeks and then returned for regular Reflexology which I maintained until the birth of my beautiful baby boy. Thank you for all your help and wonderful support. SS Co.Down
Dorothy You helped me attain my dream – a darling baby. I attended for infertility Reflexology after experiencing 2 miscarriages. You understood what I was experiencing and gave me the support I needed. Within 5 months of starting Reflexology I was pregnant. I now have my darling son who is so wanted and enjoyed. Thank you for everything. Name withheld. Co Down.
Dorothy – what can I say only thank you for all your care and attention. You have supported me during two pregnancies. AB Co Down
