I came from a very showbiz family. No surprise really as I have roots going all the way back to Hollywood in the 1870’s where my Great Grandfather had a very successful career as an actor. My mother owned a dance school all my life and my father, although he worked full time, was a bass player in a band and an actor and after they had us kids they were always in some kind of local amateur dramatic show. My sister and I spent most of our childhoods at dance lessons or in the theatre. Once I left school I then trained as a singer/dancer/performer at stage school in London and I worked abroad in bands and hotels, cruise ships, pubs and clubs and always thought that was my path until 7 years ago after a day trip to the beautiful spiritual town of Glastonbury. I was told by a man who was singing in the wells under the Tor to go to a place called Bridie’s yard as ‘something’ that I would appreciate was taking place later that evening. Being a very inquisitive character I was intrigued so I decided I would go and I found myself amongst yogi’s and free spirits all chanting, singing and meditating. We drank homemade blessed hemp milk and were offered free hugs, It was all very overwhelming and I just knew this was something for me and through that one experience I developed a practice of meditation at home and started to clear past trauma’s from early childhood which seemed to make room for my real true potential to begin to rise. Enter spirit stage right!!!!
What do you like most about giving readings to clients?
Bridging the gap between client and spirit to bring the unearthly realm closer to the sitter is the most beautiful uplifting thing I love about being a reader. It’s why I do what I do. To bring healing to people who need it most at that moment. To be in service to others and serve spirit is a gift I wouldn't trade for the world.
How would you say you are typical of your star sign?
I am totally typical of my star sign, I'm a free spirit, you can’t tie me down. I love to travel and see different places and cultures. I am loving and caring. I am a spur of the moment girl. I am slightly messy, though I hate to admit it and if you really want the truth, come and ask me!!!!
When do you remember being first aware of your gift?
Unlike many mediums I didn’t really see spirit around me from a young age apart from an imaginary friend called Judy who would talk to me a-lot whilst I sat on the toilet of all places, I didn’t really see her but rather hear her in my head which I now know is Clairaudience, but one thing that has stayed with all my life up to this point is how I used to regularly have out of body experiences. This started at the age of around 5 years old. Every time I would go to bed I would have to have the little window open in my bedroom so that once asleep I could slip out outside and go and play in the gardens of all my neighbours, jumping over all the magnificent trees that seemed to be illuminated in fantastic colours or I would be able to somehow place myself in a big red ball and jump from the top of my parents stairs to the bottom of the hall. This was immense fun for me and I could feel all the sensations as if I were on a roller coaster. Even now as an adult I can still remember how these experiences felt.
What is your most memorable experience with a client?
I have many great memorable experiences but the best come from return callers who tell me how the future has panned out for them since I read for them and how accurate I was. How it helped them and gave them the confidence they needed to carry forward on their life path. It doesn't get any better than that for me.
What other experiences or qualifications do you have that you feel compliment your work as a reader?
I feel the other experiences that have really helped me as a reader is self-development. We all have a shadow side to our personalities and learning to take responsibility for that has cleared a lot of blockages for me and helped spirit to blend with me in a much stronger way. I have also attended the world famous Arthur Findlay College of Psychic Sciences to study various faculties within the spiritual realms.
What is the most important thing for a person to consider when they decide to have a psychic reading?
I think to receive the best from there time with a medium, sitters should be open to all messages that come through for them.
Fantastic reading. Manda tuned in with my grandfather and the Auntie and she delivered very significant messages from them to me, with very significant information from my past and present. It was a life changing reading. Highly recommended. I will call you again Manda and will be watching out for the craws x
