Katina Demetriou - Founder | Reiki Master | Spiritual Healer | Life Coach | Teacher
- Traditional Usui Reiki Master/Teacher
- Accredited International Results Coach
Katina Demetriou was born in London, she decided to make Australia her home in 1994 after falling in love with the country's natural beauty whilst working as a Tour Guide around Australia.
Her passion for natural remedies was passed down to her by her mother and grandmother, Katina. All her family chose natural therapies first to help heal medical issues where possible.
Whilst Katina worked at the Geelong University Hospital, witnessing the pressure of overworked staff and emotional pressure on families she decided to open a Wellbeing Centre close to the hospital, where people could go in to meditate or use other Holistic services offering peace and relaxation.
She has enjoyed volunteering for St. John’s Ambulance in London, the Barwon Health Foundation and 'Reach' with the late Jimmy Stynes.
In 2013 Katina joined the Choir “Kwaya” and travelled to Uganda as a volunteer helping at the orphanages and schools. She then travelled onto Madagascar where she stayed at the Greek Orthodox Mission who run 40 orphanages. Each morning she would greet approximately 1000 street orphans who would arrive to be given their only meal for the day.
The Centre has provided complimentary massage services to staff and visitors at the Geelong University Hospital for a gold donation. Funds raised have been shared with the Special Care Nursery, Uganda and Madagascar. Katina feels grateful for being able to contribute and be part of the community and thanks every one who has helped participate with fundraising over the years.
In July 2018 Katina organised and hosted an overseas Spiritual Holistic Retreat on the beautiful Greek Island of Mykonos. This was a very successful and spiritual awakening experience for all who attended the retreat. Katina is planning to host retreats in Australia and return to the Greek Islands when we are all able to travel overseas again, hopefully soon.
As a qualified Usui Reiki Master Healer, Katina offers all her services including Reiki Healing and Reiki Level 1 & 2 Courses at Geelong Wellbeing Centre. Most of her services are also available by distance, on the phone or by Zoom. (Courses are not offered online).
