Frequently Asked Questions



How Should I Prepare for a Reading?

                                                                              Reflect On The Questions Before Your Reading

  • I highly recommend that, before you go into any reading, that you have reflected on the questions you intend to ask. Write your questions down and take them with you to your reading. You will find that the time goes quickly; by being prepared, you will get more out of your session.

  • Try To Be Comfortable And Relaxed   As an Empath, when I focus on those I am reading, the first thing I usually get is how nervous they are about being read. I promise you — none of us bite! So try to relax and be comfortable, and enjoy your reading to the fullest.



What is Clairvoyance?

Clairvoyance is the ability to see things beyond normal senses.
It actually translates to “clear seeing.” It means that the person that is working with their clairvoyant ability will be able to see images of people, places or things in their mind’s eye. They are able to describe these to you during a reading or when giving a message. This does not mean that they are fortunetellers or seers of the future (although that doesn’t mean that you won’t get some information about the future); but clairvoyance is, by definition, simply clear seeing, and not seeing the future.


What is a Medium?

A medium is someone who is able to contact and communicate with spirits of the dead.
The simple version is that a medium is someone that “talks to dead people!” (Now the boy in the film Sixth Sense would be a clairvoyant/medium because, to quote him, “I see dead people!”).

The more complex version is that a medium is the “channel” through which information from a spirit passes through or indeed is the channel through which any energy passes. By this definition, all of us indeed are mediums. This is because we all channel energy to some degree or another. As an example, if we sing, we are a medium (as is the voice) through which energy flows to create a song. If we are healers (another topic entirely), we are mediums through which the energy flows to our clients. And so on …

This then means, by its very nature, that anyone working with Spirit or energy on any level could be called a medium. A medium in this sense is then being defined as a “channel.”




It is very important to understand that, at times, I cannot connect with the deceased at all. I cannot be responsible if they do not come forward; but they normally send someone else you would know to pass messages on to you. If no connection is made at all, then we do not go back to asking questions. The session is over at this point (of course, free of charge).
