As a young child, I would see people that others couldn't. Both of my nan's passed quite young and my Dad says that I would say which one was sat with us and say things that I had no way of knowing. As I grew up I got into Angel, Tarot and Oracle cards, I did Reiki training and visited spiritualist churches, joining in the mediumship circles to practice what I was receiving for others. I started reading cards for friends and they were spot on so I have continued to work with them and thoroughly enjoy it.
What do you like most about giving readings to clients?
I enjoy the pleasure it gives to the client and especially when a loved one comes through, it's such an honour to be able to bring through their personality and guidance that helps the client. I just want to bring happiness to people.
How would you say you are typical of your star sign?
I am a typical, bubbly Leo, in the way that I enjoy chatting with people, I'm excitable and can be loud. I'm loyal and just want the best for others. I am my own worst critic. I am always there when my friends or family need me as I care so much, very empathic.
When do you remember being first aware of your gift?
I remember I was about 7 years old as my most clear memory and I could see someone in my room, as to which I got told it was my imagination. But I knew it wasn't and I didn't feel frightened. I'd see angels and spirit more and more from then on.
What is your most memorable experience with a client?
Sitting with a lady client and a gentleman stepped forward, I described what I was shown and the lady said it was her Dad who had passed when she was young. She was so over the moon as he hadn't come through to her before but she was just starting on her spiritual journey and he had lots of guidance for her. It was lovely to bring in that connection for her and watch her get excited for her future knowing her Dad was fully behind her in the spirit realm.
What other experiences or qualifications do you have that you feel compliment your work as a reader?
I have worked as a healer also, for the past 5 years, I feel that has helped to clear my energy and open up more. I work with crystals a lot and I also sell these at mind, body, spirit events. I also use crystals for healing, they are all channels for me and brings through what is needed for the client. I also have a certificate in counselling which I feel helps me connect with others.
What is the most important thing for a person to consider when they decide to have a psychic reading?
I'd say it is to feel comfortable with the reader as it is a very personal thing.
Thank you, Melissa, for the fantastic reading. Validation after validation ... Amazing how you picked up the exact colour of the rings and the detail of the labrador and cat. A pleasure to be your first caller on Psychic Sofa. I'm sure you are going to be very busy. D. 10-May-21
