How does it work?
All readings are always conducted one-to-one (unless agreed in advance, e.g. when an interpreter is required) in a self-contained space, ensuring your privacy. Like all ethical readers, I practice professional confidentiality, so anything you say is handled with discretion.
You may come with a particular question in mind. If so, tell me at the beginning so I can focus on your chosen issue. Equally, you may opt for a general reading. The spread of the cards, and the reading, will generally show the events and opportunities arising over the next three to six months – sometimes extending for up to a year.
While the cards are drawn and interpreted for you, you have the opportunity to ask me questions, talk it over, and ask for further clarification. I am often told I am exceptionally accurate - not only at understanding the divinatory signs of the cards, but gifted at helping you establish strategies with which to go forward.
There are two lengths of readings: a half hour or a full hour. It is up to you which length you prefer, though if you have a particularly deep or complex issue, you may wish to choose a longer session. More info: readings options.
What issues lead people to a Tarot reading?
Sometimes it is a particular dilemma, or the sense of being at a crossroads in life. Sometimes it is a feeling that things need to be examined afresh. Sometimes it can be because people feel weighed down, as if things seem just not to be moving on, or shifting, in spite of their best efforts. Sometimes it can be because people feel light and playful, wanting a reading out of sheer curiosity!
Typical issues people look at in readings to examine their choices and options are: love life - or lack of it!; career and professional development; changing life direction; reassessing priorities and partnerships; family relationships (including pets); relationship dynamics; office politics; marriage and relationships; moving country or home; identity issues (ethnic, cultural, gender, sexuality); finding and building a spiritual life.
If you want to reflect and reassess how your life is going, a general reading will show opportunities and challenges coming up over the upcoming six months so you can make the most of them.

What if you have a sensitive issue to ask about?
Please rest assured that you can discuss it openly, and in confidence. You have the attention of a reader who is warm, compassionate, understanding and non-judgemental, as outlined in the Code of Ethical Practice. My vocation to Tarot reading is grounded in a spiritual service and in building community.
