My Auntie Lilly taught me to read the Tarot and playing cards when I was a teenager. She bought me my first pack of Rider Waite and we would often read for each other. I started reading professionally at the age of 23 and have been doing readings for 25 years now. I am a member of my local spiritualist church and have done readings for charity events to raise money for various causes. I am also a qualified holistic therapist and reiki practitioner.
What do you like most about giving readings to clients?
Sometimes, we all need someone to talk and offload to without making it common knowledge. I think as a reader, my clients know that whatever their problem, it is always confidential. They get unbiased advice in a confidential environment, knowing they can say what is on their mind without anyone thinking different about them or gossiping about it.
How would you say you are typical of your star sign?
I don't think anyone is typical of their star sign because we all have planets in different signs and houses and because of this, I don't think anyone can be defined by their Star sign. We're all unique. I have always believed that we are the sum total of what we have experienced to date!!!
When do you remember being first aware of your gift?
I was six and I woke up in the night seeing a woman sat on my bed just staring at me. She had the most piercing blue eyes and was wearing a yellow twin set, Plaid skirt and a pearl necklace. I called out for my mother who came running up the stairs and turned the light on. I asked who the woman was sat on my bed and she said there was no one there. I insisted that there was and she took me downstairs to calm me down. She asked me to describe the woman I had seen. When I did she went pale but said nothing. Years later at my Aunts house, going through old photos, I saw this woman again, dressed in the same outfit and asked who she was. My mother and Auntie told me it was their cousin, Yvonne who had died in a car accident before I was born. The photo had been taken on Christmas eve, just a few hours before she died.
What is your most memorable experience with a client?
I had a client who was grieving her recently deceased husband. She phoned me regularly for 2 years. I like to think I helped her over this until she finally came to terms with his death. She was a lovely lady who I will never forget.
What other experiences or qualifications do you have that you feel compliment your work as a reader?
I am a qualified Holistic Therapist and Reiki Healer.
What is the most important thing for a person to consider when they decide to have a psychic reading?
I think the most important thing is what kind of reading do you want and what type of reader provides that service. Those seeking advice may want a Psychic intuitive reading, where as those who wish to connect with a deceased love one may need a reading with a Medium who is able to connect to those who have passed over.
Lina was great. For a late night call she was on the ball. Clear, specific and accurate. I felt reassured instead of inpatient because everything she said was on point. Inspired the way forward but grounded at the same time. From one reader to another Lina, thank you for your clarity and insight. Your style is much appreciated. Keeping it real. Very best wishes.
Lina is a very gifted reader. The first thing she picked up was correct. She gave me an accurate and an honest reading. Thank you so much Lina you are truly amazing. Will speak again in the future. Allison xx
