Reiki Practitioner and Teacher

Laetitia qualified for Reiki 1st degree in 1999. Working with the energy helped her cope with life’s difficulties at that time by utilizing regular meditations and self treatments. The process changed her life considerably as Reiki can remove any blockages hindering spiritual development.
Two years later she was ready to move on to Reiki 2nd degree.  This enabled her to work as a Reiki practitioner and add this to her other qualifications as a therapist. At this level the Reiki energy is used intuitively.
Laetitia attained the Master/Teacher degree in 2003 after an intense but fascinating weekend. Since then she has taught Reiki courses to many students and has worked for her Master/Teacher Taggart King at Reiki Evolution in the south east area of the U.K. from 2004 to 2008.

This work has produced significant results for herself and clients. A person can benefit greatly from working regularly with Reiki energy as it strengthens their abilities along with the flow of energy.

If you are considering a course in Reiki surrounded by the beautiful healing energies of the ancient landscape of Cornwall, whether you are local or on vacation, Laetitia is once again teaching for her own Master/Teacher Taggart King covering the Cornwall area of the U.K. You can book a course with her via Taggart’s fabulous website at:

Reiki Evolution

Due to the situation regarding Covid 19, Reiki Evolution teachers are now providing live courses and social distance tuition in person, but continue to adhere to safety guidelines.

Reiki 1st Degree Course with Reiki Evolution – April

I absolutely loved my course. My Teacher is so amazing and so was the lady I was practicing Reiki with. It was such a good experience. Felt very comfortable. I learnt so much. I would definitely recommend this course to anyone. There is nothing that need to be improved in my eyes, it was perfect.” E.D.
“Hi Laetitia, What a great day. I really enjoyed it and learnt so much. It was made even better by my fellow Reiki pals. I slept so well last night and feel wonderful this morning. I will definitely be connecting Reiki as part of my daily activities, so calming. Thank you for the photos Laetitia and thank you to you and my fellow student for being so lovely. Enjoy your week and hopefully see you both soon”. S.N.
“I wanted to thank you so much for suggesting the Reiki. I absolutely love doing my daily meditations and having done the self-healing three times now. It really does help me so much. My head is in a totally different space now. I am more at peace mentally and I am also braver! I am getting the hang of saying ‘No’ to things I can’t or don’t want to do. Thank you once again.” S.N.

Reiki Master Course with Reiki Evolution – March

Hello Taggart ,I really enjoyed the live course and the range of different course materials was really useful to help with absorbing the necessary information. My teacher, Laetitia, was a very interesting and knowledgeable lady, my fellow student and I both found it to be a really good weekend.” B.S.


Reiki 2nd Degree Course with Reiki Evolution -September

“I took Reiki Shoden 8yrs ago with Laetitia and my original manual though well thumbed is still in use. When I received the manual for Reiki 2 I was so excited and as with the first the course material is easy to read and follow and it has a wealth of information written in a style that is really easy to follow and explained very well. The live course was wonderful, Laetitia is an amazing teacher and a truly beautiful person. I was lucky enough on both courses to have her all to myself and we chatted about all sorts of things during the course. I was left feeling really excited for the different ways I can use Reiki in my everyday life and with the confidence to try out all these new ideas. Like all the best teachers Laetitia has a gift for inspiring others and giving them confidence. I feel very lucky to have been given the opportunity to learn with her.” V.K.
Hi Laetitia I just wanted to say a big thank you for today. The course and attunements were wonderful and I am looking forward to trying out all the new ways to use reiki. I am feeling a bit like I have an energy hang over at the moment.  Thank you for a wonderful day , it took me a long time to be ready to take the next step but it definitely feels like I’m in the right place. I couldn’t have hoped for a better teacher xx . x  V.K.



“Laetitia thank you for a great day. Today has opened up my whole being to Reiki” N.W.


Its good to hear that students I taught years ago are still using Reiki and helping others:
“I think the more you work with intuition allows you to ‘read’ people before they arrive- doing a lot of Distant Healing (which I do for paying clients frequently) certainly heightens the ability to do this.! Like you, I’ve been practicing a few years , since 2005 (training with the wonderful Laetitia Latham Jones who I know doesn’t look old enough to have been teaching that long!!) and still love every aspect of Reiki” A.H.



“I completed my Reiki 1 and 2 many years ago and have been practicing as a healer ever since.  When I discovered that Laetitia was providing a Reiki Master Teacher course I was overjoyed and have found Laetitia’s teaching methods to be extremely thorough and informative.  The attunements I received from Laetitia were really powerful and beautiful, it was an awesome weekend.  I feel I now completely understand the attunements and all of the Master symbols and I have been practicing on a daily basis.  I was given excellent after care advice and since the course I have had several empowerments from my own personal guides.  Thank you Laetitia, you are a wonderful teacher x” Michelle
“This year is a very special year and October – a special month! Samhain and All Hallows Dark Gathering at Boscastle – and a great opportunity to see Cassandra and Laetitia for our annual photo! :). After previously completing Reiki 2nd degree with Laetitia, I felt energy changes that I wasn’t expecting and that were also most welcome. I was very much looking forward to booking in with Laetitia for Reiki Master/Teacher course – and many months after – indeed I did! I traveled a long way – spiritually and physically to be there. It was a wonderful magical coincidence that Michelle was training with me – this helped my development. The setting is wonderful –  a wise women’s cottage in the village with Cassandra present with us and of course Clutterbuck the cat. Laetitia is a wonderful teacher and went through everything thoroughly. I loved learning the attunements. I feel confident and happy and am looking forward to this – no doubt challenging, journey. I’m very glad I connected with her and it was especially wonderful because of Samhain. I recommend that you work with Laetitia not only with Reiki – but the work that both her and Cassandra do in the form of readings and workshops. Always an important marking in my spiritual development.” Karen
“The Shoden First Degree course was an amazing experience and special day. Laetitia created a relaxed and open environment in the beautiful cottage (Cassandra kindly let us use her cottage for the day) which made for a atmospheric setting with the gentle background music and candles. Laetitia went through every stage of the day in a thorough and well laid out way which made us feel at ease and get into a nice flow, she is a very good teacher.”
Student 2: On the day the energy was so much stronger than when practicing the exercises previously and since then people have mentioned how calm I appear, although being emotionally up and down does seem to be starting this week!’
Student 1: ‘I was overwhelmed by how emotional I found the empowerment’s that we received throughout the morning. After the course had finished I felt a strength and calmness and walked away feeling lighter. The week that followed was a bit of a emotional roller coaster and ended with me and my boyfriend separating! However we remain good friends and have a much healthier relationship in this dynamic”
Thank you so much for your time and a wonderful day Laetitia.” C.N and E.M.
“Thanks for the Reiki 1st degree course, the pace of the day worked really well for me with a perfect combination of theory and practice. Gaining an understanding of the philosophy and history of Reiki has made me feel more committed to practicing the self-healing and meditations. I felt empowered by the emphasis on discipline and regular practice over any kind of “divine gift”. I believe it will be of huge benefit to me personally and hopefully to others when i am unleashed on them! Most of all, i enjoyed the humour which was unexpected and raised the energy considerably for me.” L.E.
“I knew nothing of Reiki, the 1st degree manual and CD’s which were sent, were crystal clear and a work of beauty…..But wait, our day with Laetitia gave us the most gentle but powerful empowerments. We felt profoundly connected to a source so much greater than ourselves, for the good of all. There is something very special here. It was bliss and this will stay with us each time we connect. Thank you. Isobel is benefiting from the Reiki. I’ve just got a headache but I’m sure something is lifting out😊
Your course was excellent.” AA.


“After my course with Laetitia today, I feel accomplished and confident in all the skills that I need to be a Reiki Practitioner. We had a day of solid practical energy work and thoroughly discussed aspects of theory. There is plenty to work on and practice. Laetitia has been taught directly by Taggart King, so the essential disciplines and lessons are preserved.”


“I attended a Reiki 1 course with Laetitia last weekend. It was an amazing experience. I know I will take what I learned that day with me through life. that is priceless!
Thank you to you both for your hospitality and thanks especially to Laetitia for being a brilliant teacher. xxx”
 “Laetitia thank you for the amazing course. You are such a fantastic teacher. I didn’t know what to expect from the first degree Reiki course, but you took us through everything in a way that’s fascinating and easy to understand. You have such a wealth of knowledge and experience, I wanted the day to be longer ! 🙂 The course material was great, and it was helpful to get the basics before the day, but you really brought it to life. I loved the experience and gained so much from it. Thank you 🙂

Earlier Testimonials:

 From my Reiki Master Taggart:

“I am really pleased you are happy with the arrangement and have enjoyed running the courses this last 6 months. You started booking up straight away, so it was meant to be and I feel honored to have you as one of my team. You are a great teacher.”
Feedback from other students that I taught while working for Taggart from 2004-2008:
“I have waited a while before writing this. I have booked my Reiki 2 Course and am practicing every day. The learning experience is quite profound. I found the course and Laetitia’s conducting of it exceptionally powerful. she delivered a truly excellent course. I am an I.T. Consultant and Software Engineer by profession and working with intuition rather than logic is refreshing and rewarding.”
“I thoroughly enjoyed the day, it was great to be with a group of like-minded people. Laetitia is obviously passionate about Reiki and conducted the day brilliantly and put everything into perspective. She is knowledgeable about all aspects and answered my questions fully about various parts I was unsure of. I am really looking forward to 2nd Degree.”
“I found the course fantastic. I was nervous on arriving at Laetitia’s home but was immediately put at ease. It was especially nice that only four people were present. The manual and CD are excellent, its nice to know that you can just relax on the day and not have to take notes. I have used the CD for Hatsurei and Self Treatments. I will definitely be moving onto 2nd Degree course.”
“Thanks Laetitia, you are a fantastic teacher, well done! Love Jx”
“Thanks for today Laetitia, looking forward to tomorrow, I had a great day of spiritual learning.  J x”
“The Manuals are brilliant; you have done a good job. The first thing we both said was “AHHHHH they are scary, but we are sure we will survive as you are a great friend and teacher. E x”
“Hi Laetitia, Thank you ever so, I thoroughly enjoyed the course, I will need plenty of time to digest all the material covered. I practiced various techniques today and listened to the CD. My hands have been tingly and I have been positive, motivated and focused, no effects of a clear-out yet!! B”
“Hi Laetitia, Just a quick note to thank you for an amazing experience on Saturday. I thoroughly enjoyed the course and already seemed to have gained something special from the experience. I will certainly be practicing over the next few months and ensuring I do the meditations and self treatments etc. I do hope to complete part 2 of the course and will contact you in due course (once I feel ready to sign up for the next round). I will stay in touch and hope to join the Reiki share some time.”
“Thanks again you have given me new hope via the Reiki course and I thank you for that. K”
“Thank you for such a lovely course I learnt so much. E”
” I just wanted to drop you a line and say thank you so much for my first degree course. The weeks that followed have been a mix of emotions, but I have now come through those and am feelings balanced and positive for the future. the marker for me was this week when I celebrated my birthday and concluded it was time to ‘move on’. So thank you because the time I spent training with you has clearly initiated much of what needed to be done. K”
” I very much enjoyed my Reiki 1st Degree course. The manual and CD were clear. The CD tracks for Hatsurei and Self Treatment are particularly useful since I can just listen to prompts rather than trying to remember what comes next. Laetitia’s hospitality, guidance and support were excellent. I would have no hesitation in recommending her to future students.”
” It was a very nice day and the instruction was very clear. I especially enjoyed the experience of sharing, having taken 2nd Degree with the same people as 1st Degree, Laetitia gave us the confidence to prove to ourselves that our powers had been enhanced.”
“The course content was good and relevant and Laetitia was very friendly and helpful. The manual was a little overwhelming at first – I wasn’t sure how much of he Japanese names etc. I had to learn. I was very happy with it though after the initial panic! Very thorough, interesting and a great reference tool. The CD reassured me that I had learnt everything OK from the manual and the Hatsurei and Self Treatment recordings are great. I really enjoyed the course overall. Reiki is giving me great new strength and calmness.”
“I really enjoyed the day spent with Laetitia during Reiki 1st Degree. I was comfortable throughout and knew I was meant to be there. The CD is helpful and I use it for Hatsurei and self-Reiki. the manual seems to contain everything I need to know about 1st Degree. I have felt an amazing sense of calm and balance since December 17th which is unusual for me at this time of year. I have practiced Reiki on my 12 year old son and my boyfriend, also on my dog and parrot. Thank you and I look forward to advancing in the future.”
“I thoroughly enjoyed the course and found it a very moving and interesting experience. We were made very welcome by Laetitia and I feel she is a very talented person. I will definitely be attending 2nd level.”
“Dear Laetitia, I just wanted to drop you a line and thank you for last Saturday. Its been a week of ups and downs (definitely more ups) and now I am feeling on top of the world. I learnt so much last week and am still learning! Have been doing Hatsurei every day and self treatments, as well as everything I can practice on. I cant believe how strong my emotions are when I do my exercises. I cry each time but not with any sense of sadness. the colours get stronger and the heat is really strong. I am really keen to complete 2nd Degree. If I cant do May are you doing more courses throughout the summer? Thanks again, hope you and yours are well and happy.”
” I found Reiki Evolution from browsing the internet, having already decided to take my 1st Degree. The site was informative and I liked the fact there was follow-up. the learning is broken down and some is self-directed. This worked well for me – allowing me to digest the information at my own pace and in my own style. Everything is clear and the CD is 100% useful. All the information about the actual day was clear and friendly. My tutor was Laetitia and I was with another student, we therefore had real quality time with tuition. It was truly a special day. I felt comfortable, welcomed and learnt so much. Since I have come away I have asked questions and plan to do more with Reiki Evolution when the time is right. I would recommend this to anyone. Talking to others who have had training elsewhere, I feel I got real quality teaching plus a gorgeous certificate which I proudly show anyone who shows the vaguest interest. I look forward to learning more. Thank you.”
“Dear Laetitia, I just want to thank you again for the wonderful day last Saturday. I slept the deepest sleep that night and have felt the benefit of the empowerment since then. The energy is so much stronger now and I really feel I have I have embarked on a very special new stage in my life. Look forward to meeting again.”
“My experience of Reiki Evolution has been one of extremely high quality from the word ‘go’. Following my introduction to Reiki through a randomly-selected library book, I spent some time on the internet broadening my knowledge generally but being immediately drawn to the Reiki Evolution website when I finally stumbled on it (that quality thing again)! Since then I have been most impressed with actual materials themselves – paper, manual, CDs – as well as the friendly, relaxed and professional way the admin side of the business has been devised and presented. The Reiki 1 experience itself was a pure delight and was conducted by a charming, well informed teacher. On reflection I am amazed at the ease with which Laetitia introduced such a profound, life-changing experience to my fellow students and myself, another example no doubt of the thorough well designed way of doing things the Reiki Evolution way.”
“Thanks for the confirmation, that’s fantastic. So looking forward to Reiki 2. Laetitia is a wonderful teacher.”
“Firstly your site was the only one I researched online, decided to trust my intuition. I was impressed enough with the site to send off my payment. When the manual and CDs arrived I was pleased with the quality of both, so I had high expectations when I went to meet Laetitia and again I was not disappointed. I found her to be very welcoming and felt relaxed and at ease. the day itself was wonderful, life changing day and I left knowing I would be back for 2nd Degree.”
“Dear Laetitia, Just a quick line to say many thanks for a lovely day and a wonderful experience at your home, I am sorry I had to dash off, (husbands!). I have just booked for my 2nd Degree in July and look forward to seeing you then. It was really nice to have met you.”
“Hi Laetitia, I must apologize for not contacting you earlier to thank you for a wonderful day last Saturday, but wanted to delay sending thanks to see how I felt after a few days. I cannot begin to tell you all of the positive changes that Reiki has made in my life. I am so much calmer (I am always on the go) clearer thinking, sleep better and feel happier and contented. What more could anyone want. I continue to do Hatsurei each day, also self treatments and often send distant healing to friends and family. I have today received my beautiful certificate from Taggart with a request for feedback. As we are off to France tomorrow I have not time to do this at the moment but will email this later on when I have had time to consider everything. Suffice to say that I am so pleased I did the course and look forward to doing Reiki 2 in the future.”
“I am very pleased with everything about the course. I found it very empowering and Laetitia was very clear and relaxed. What was especially good was there were only 4 people on the course at the same time. the manual is very clear and the CDs are great. I have had amazing feedback from people I have treated. They have experienced everything from loads of heat to colours flashing around them. I am planning to do Reiki 2 in September and I cant wait!”
“Dear Laetitia, what an extraordinary day! Thank you very much for the course, I gained a lot more from it than I expected, since I have been working through the book and CDs for the past few weeks and thinking I have been developing well. I probably have but that does not reduce the effect of the day. I shall keep in touch and let you know how I get on.”
“Dear Laetitia, thanks so much for the very special day last Saturday. Since them I have found I meditate at a much deeper level and when healing, feel a much stronger energy. It is wonderful. Have experienced a slight ‘clear-out’ I think but had a tummy- flu virus so its difficult to tell.”
“The course content and presentation are very clear and informative. I feel I have learned a lot in Reiki and has now become an essential part of my life. Laetitia made the group very welcome and it was helpful to share experiences. It was a wonderful day, carefully structured and presented.”
“I found it really helpful to learn about the history and background of Reiki The course was simple to follow – particularly the list of instructions. The guided meditations are helpful as you don’t have to worry about  remembering what to do. On the day of the course I found Laetitia great to work with. I found her friendly, helpful and encouraging. Although we were all concentrating the mood was still light-hearted. It was a really enjoyable day.”
“The whole structure and set-up has been first-class. The manual is brilliant and Laetitia Jones was an excellent teacher – she helped clarify things clearly and simply without confusion. I will do all my courses with you – I have already signed up for level 2.”
“The live course was in a friendly setting and Laetitia was good at answering any questions we had had helped us feel as if we were already Reiki Practitioners! An enjoyable course and although I wasn’t sure what to expect the little Reiki energy I was aware of convinced me to develop Reiki further.”
