For as long as I can remember, my journey as an empath has helped me to understand and connect to the spirit world and pass on the messages it wants us to hear. I have always had a love for this path, and have understood that despite experiencing loss, disappointment, trauma and all the other challenging incidents that happen to most of us our lives, there's always light at the end of the tunnel and lessons to be learnt. I am also a Bachelor of Art and my love of painting and illustration is reflected by the imagery in the tarot decks I choose to use. I would one day love to produce my own tarot deck illustrations to share this gift further.
What do you like most about giving readings to clients?
I love helping people, but I also love it more when my client has understood the reading on their own terms and used it as a tool for empowering themselves. When I hear the anxiety or sadness in someone's voice at the start of a call and hear them feeling more calm and positive at the end, I feel I have made a little difference to that person's life. I also really enjoy hearing people's personal stories and at times, it's really invigorating hearing the other person laughing despite the suffering that is being experienced in our world.
How would you say you are typical of your star sign?
With Venus as my ruler, I'm a sucker for anything beautiful! Being very resourceful, I am always trawling charity shops and my local recycling furniture shop for bargains (much to the disapproval of my young son's) and looking for ways to look after our planet. I am an Earth sign after all! I am a practicing artist, have a love of music and am very loyal and family orientated. Creativity is key to me.
When do you remember being first aware of your gift?
From a very young age, I experienced positive meetings with spirit guides and always felt strongly connected to the energy of the natural and spiritual world. I visited my first tarot reader aged just seven years old at my local fun fair and since then, my journey has been evolving.
What is your most memorable experience with a client?
Two nights ago, I was doing a reading for a lovely woman that asked me for a general reading. I picked up that there had been a tragic death in the family but despite this, there was an abundance of love and cause for celebration coming up. She then informed me that I was the first person to know that her partner of over twenty years had proposed to her the night before and they were now engaged to be married later this year! Needless to say this was a very special reading for me. I felt truly blessed to have experienced this.
What other experiences or qualifications do you have that you feel compliment your work as a reader?
I have been practicing as a tarot reader for over twenty years, and met and read for a very wide range of people. Working for the London Palaces for over ten years, I experienced many meetings with the resident spirits and this was when I started to take my abilities more seriously!
What is the most important thing for a person to consider when they decide to have a psychic reading?
To remain open minded. Sometimes a reading can offer solutions that one hadn't considered before, or give information that had not yet been discovered. Client’s questions at the beginning of a reading may differ towards the end of the reading. This is because there are times when a reading sheds light on other areas of our life that are having an impact on what we were originally asking, without realising it. It is also important to remember that a psychic reading is giving guidance, not necessarily a clear cut solution to our problems. For me, as individuals, we are in control of our destiny, to an extent and a psychic reading is there to enable this.
