I really have never been unaware of my gift. As a small child, pre school age, I just seemed to know things that I had no way of knowing, sometimes things came to me in dreams. I was very sensitive to energies, especially in houses and around people. As a small child you do not think these things are unusual. It was only when I started school I felt different. I had great empathy for anyone in distress, I felt it myself. My adoptive parents did not encourage me to talk about these things. I remember one day as a little child an ashtray jumping off a shelf in the lounge and landing beside me, I just assumed it was a sign and it just felt normal. I was always very drawn to animals, I sensed them as wholly good and this is why later in life I became a Reiki Animal Healer. My vivid dreams would sometimes convey future events and warnings. I was very much made to feel as if I should conform and for a long time I tried, as you do as a child and young person, you want to fit in. However the draw to anything spiritual and the magic of Nature was so strong, I just accepted that it didn't matter if I was regarded as somewhat different, it was and is a blessing
What do you like most about giving readings to clients?
I love helping people to move forward with their lives. I believe that I have been blessed with these abilities in order to help others. As a child I did not see this as a blessing and I wished I wasn't different. It took almost 30 years for me to realise this was a good thing and should be shared. I have been through a lot in my life and this has only strengthened my wish to help others, particularly those who are in a bad place.
How would you say you are typical of your star sign?
I am a Leo and I would say I'm typical of my sign. Leos are natural leaders and I feel this helps me as a guide. Leo's other good traits are passion, determination, loyalty, generosity - again I feel these are very advantageous with regards to Tarot reading. I always give everything my best shot and strive for a good outcome.
When do you remember being first aware of your gift?
Before I was four years old I saw "customers" in my local village shop whilst there with my adoptive mother. I remember it as if it were yesterday. As a child of that age you do not realise that this is unusual, but when I asked my mother and the shop keeper who they were, I was told there was no one there. I remember asking who they were because they were wearing "funny" clothes (from a different era). The female customer smiled at me before they disappeared. As we left the shop my mother told me not to talk about these things. It was at that point, small as I was, that I realised I was different. I kept quiet about this and all future childhood incidents.
What is your most memorable experience with a client?
There have been so many, that it is really impossible to pick the most memorable. Often signs and messages come randomly and I just know things are going to happen. One incident that perhaps I'd like to mention is about a young male colleague I used to work with. He was very lonely, very depressed. He had given up on love and almost on life. Throughout my career with the NHS, I told few colleagues about my abilities, he however did know and he asked me for help. He was interested in a particular female colleague but did not have the courage to ask her out. I felt very strongly that on a particular day two weeks into the future his luck would change. I explained that nothing could change this lady's free will, however we could work on his energy and aura through methods including healing and meditation. As the afternoon of the day in question drew to a close, he was very downcast saying she was not interested. I was adamant he should not lose faith. Before the end of the working day he received an email from another lady, whom he had not considered. She said she had been noticing him particularly lately and asked him out on a date. They have been happily married for several years now. This is not a mind blowing event, but it sticks in my mind because he was in such a bad place.
What other experiences or qualifications do you have that you feel compliment your work as a reader?
I am a Reiki Master. I have carried out animal healing and worked as a voluntary healer in a multiple sclerosis centre. I am very interested in crystal healing, meditations and astrology. I follow the pagan / wiccan lifestyle and path.
What is the most important thing for a person to consider when they decide to have a psychic reading?
This is a difficult question because everyone is so different and they consider readings for a multitude of reasons. Do your research read profiles and then go with your gut, go with someone that you instinctively feel comfortable with. I am a great believer in gut instinct. I think one should be aware that there may be things you may not want to hear that certain specific questions may or may not be answered. A lot I believe depends on the connection between reader and questioner and what is meant to be revealed by the cards. I know perhaps a stock answer would be, know what you want from the reading and have realistic expectations. I believe if you have certain questions ask them but I myself never know what to expect from one reading to the next. They can be surprising, very individual and take unexpected twists and turns.
Thank you for an insightful reading. Very good and empathic.
