Earthereal of Yorkshire
Holistic Training Academy
and Therapy Practice

Earthereal of Yorkshire is the holistic practice and training academy of Lois Skilleter, therapist, teacher and Reiki Master, based in Ilkley, West Yorkshire.

Are you considering a new career as a Holistic Therapist, or an experienced therapist wishing to add to your repertoire? I welcome students at all levels and from all backgrounds: with the wide range of accredited Practitioner Diploma courses I teach, I hope there will be something to suit you.

I teach just one or two students on each course, to ensure personal attention, friendly tuition and the opportunity for plenty of practical experience to ensure my students are able to work confidently and effectively to deliver their chosen therapies. I also offer ongoing support to all my students, and refresher sessions if required.

With a background in primary and early years teaching, as well as SEN support, I have a particular interest in working with children and young people, and with families who have additional needs. Reiki 1 courses can be offered at a reduced rate for small groups in this situation and workshops can be tailored to individual needs. I believe that holistic therapies can be of great benefit to everyone and part of my "mission statement" is to make them accessible to as many people as possible.

Please take a look at my "feedback" page and read the views of some of my students and clients: if you feel I may be the teacher for you, do get in touch for a no obligation chat.

Now available: New Vitality course!

Families with Additional Needs

I have a great interest in working with families who have additional needs, and I work with several local autism support groups to provide therapies to parents, carers and children at affordable rates and times that fit around the family. Please see the Me-Time page for more information.

My peaceful attic spare room/therapy room - "close to the angels" as one student describes it, with beautiful views up to Ilkley Moor!
