About Deborah Dalziel

Deb Dalziel - Melbourne ReikiHello my name is Deborah or Deb as most people know me by and I began Melbourne Reiki Centre in 2012, opening up in our current location in Hawthorn in 2015.
I have a passion for learning and personal growth, helping people connect within for healing & wellness. This passion has guided my career choices from Primary Teaching to the Business Sector as an Executive Coach, Trainer and Facilitator and in 2006 founding my own Training Company, Fresh Outcomes. I rested Fresh as a brand in 2015 and my soul focus is loving now MRC. 


I love to share this passion of mine and educate how easy it is to bring this spiritual practice into your own daily life and heal from within, be a person who has inner knowledge to sustaining your wellness and vitality in both mind and body.

How did you decide to study Reiki?  Did Reiki find you?

I began practicing Yoga in my 20s and from this developed an interest in sitting meditation. I practiced by myself from books and tapes initially (yes I know no apps back then) and then began visiting/learning with different teachers. In 2009 I met and studied with Frans Stiene whose approach I found, and still find so aligned to my values, of ongoing learning and student centred discovery, and thus my Reiki Journey formally began.

What further Reiki Training have you done? Are you doing?

debdalzielanimalreikiWe all know that the training course you do is just the beginning. I attended my Reiki Teacher/Master Training or Shinpiden as is known in Reiki, in 2011. My study continues within my own daily practice as well as attending retreats and other Reiki studies. In 2012 I also studied with Inamoto Hyakuten extending my personal practice. I have also studied, with Kathleen Prasad of Animal Reiki Source and am a certified Animal Meditation & Reiki Specialist Teacher for healing with animals.

Professional learning that has been a key part of my journey beyond my teaching degree includes, Master Practitioner of NLP (Neuro Linguistic Programming), Accredited in TMS (Team Management Systems) a Practitioner of Spiral Dynamics (with Chris and Natasha Cohen), and a Certified mBIT Trainer & Coach (mBraining) and Clean Language Coach with study under Penny Tompkins and James Lawley. For me this study is akin to developing my whole self emotionally, psychologically, a wonderful support to the spiritual.
