I have been providing readings for customers for over 10 years. Prior to that I provided many readings for friends and family. I first became interested in Astrology about 25 years ago. I quickly developed a love and passion for it. I then studied with the Faculty of Astrological Studies in London and completed their certificate course. I also studied with the Astrological Psychology Association in England who specialise in a type of soul based Astrology called the Huber method. This seeks to see the person concerned as a whole individual and to understand how each part of the personality relates to the character and potentiality of the complete person. I am also a trained counsellor and can this skill as an extra layer to help the client deal with any issues they may have in their life. In addition I have been a practising Buddhist for 9 years and have not only received many spiritual teachings but have also taught meditation classes for over 4 years. This can assist in dealing with trauma and realising that all difficult experiences are transitory in nature. I will calculate a clients natal chart showing the positions of planets at the date and time of their birth. The natal chart will provide an in depth profile of a clients personality, potentialities, motivation and strengths. It will also provide insights as to how they approach committed and romantic relationships, what type of work they are likely to do and what their financial situation is likely to be. It will also assist the in identifying those areas in which you the person feels vulnerable and needs to build confidence and self esteem. Once I have calculated the chart I will then use what I see in the chart together with my intuition, developed over many years, to provide the insights my knowledge and experience can give. I am aware that Astrology can be highly technical. I am therefore careful to explain what I see in the chart in an understandable way. This will give a client a feel as to what is coming up in their life and is very revealing in all of the areas I have mentioned above. Is this relationship likely to last? Will I meet someone? Will me and my partner get married? Will I change jobs? Will I get a better job? Will I get promotion? Will my finances improve? Will I ever feel happy? When will the above happen? I am also a good listener and use my experience as a counsellor to respond to a clients questions with patience and empathy.
What do you like most about giving readings to clients?
I like to leave clients feeling that they have benefitted from the reading. I get great satisfaction in knowing that the client finishes the reading feeling more inspired and positive than they began. I remind clients that no matter how difficult their current circumstances are, that all stressful or traumatic situations do not last. It is not the situation itself which causes trauma but our response to it. Even knowing this can give positive strength.
How would you say you are typical of your star sign?
I am an Aries. Aries is the first sign of the zodiac and gets the zodiac moving. They are the pioneers and entrepreneurs. Aries possesses the energy and egotism of the new born. They are capable of boundless enthusiasm and can use this to inspire others. They often like to work for themselves rather than being employed by someone else. I ran my own business for eighteen years and indeed feel most comfortable organising my own outfit. Aries are known for being brave, courageous and independent. I am often at my best when my back is to the wall and see life as a series of challenges rather than problems. This encourages me to think of creative ideas to get life going move things along.
When do you remember being first aware of your gift?
I have always been very intuitive but it was only when I came upon Astrology and Meditation around 25 years ago that I really appreciated that I did indeed have an intuitive gift. I have been told that I am a good example of an Empath. That is someone who senses and feels the feelings of those around them almost as if they were their own. Over the years I have worked on this and it is still a work in progress.
What is your most memorable experience with a client?
I have had a few memorable clients. Specifically I remember a client in 2014. She had been recommended to me by a friend of hers. She was in the midst of much soul searching. I recommended that she should develop her spirituality and consider meditation. She took my advice and life just got better.
What other experiences or qualifications do you have that you feel compliment your work as a reader?
I am a trained counsellor, specialising in person centred counselling. This was from Chester College. I am also a practising Buddhist. I have not only attended spiritual teachings over many years but also taught meditation classes of 10 to 20 people myself. For 6 months I was also a volunteer child line counsellor which involve taking calls from children usually in distressing circumstances.
What is the most important thing for a person to consider when they decide to have a psychic reading?
Firstly to have reasonably clear idea as to the questions they wish to ask and which area of life they wish to focus on. Secondly although it is my job to inspire they should then use that to make the necessary changes, if any, to their own lives.
John is an excellent astrologer. I have some knowledge of this subject and I found his assessment interesting and inspiring. He bases the reading on your specific date, time and place of birth. Absolutely accurate on my past and present. I will definitely be speaking with him again. Thanks John, from Allison.
