In pursuit of happiness

Nicky Peet went from hospital technician to Reiki teacher

In our occasional series looking at people who have taken a very different career path since moving to France, Gillian Harvey meets happiness coach Nicky Peet, 48, in Nantes

What does your job involve?

I teach people to heal their lives by tapping into their inner creativity using Reiki, Chios therapy and art.

I help clients to discover that everyone is creative in some way, and that we can use our creativity to help both express and heal our emotions. I also run colour workshops where we study a colour, focusing on memories, emotions and language associated with it, after which we consider how to use each colour in our lives.

For anyone who hasn’t come across Reiki before, it can seem a little unusual. Practitioners of Reiki use a universal energy to help others to heal – a sort of ‘feng shui’ for the body. Chios therapy is similar to Reiki but focuses on different colours of the chakras (energy channels) in the body.
