Born in Redditch Worcestershire, I was brought up a Catholic, but remember first seeing Spirit at the age of about seven. As a child I always knew that Spirit people were around me, but I was discouraged from mentioning them as everyone thought that I just had a vivid imagination.
By the time I was a teenager I had been told by several people that I had the gift of clairvoyance; so I started attending Spiritualist churches watching mediums like Gaye Muir, Doris Stokes and Ivor James, and by the time I had reached the age of 19, I had sat in my first circle.
After getting married and having two children I felt the urge to become more actively involved in Spiritualism. I had been told by various platform mediums that I should be standing platform, doing what they were doing, and it wasn't long before I was invited to sit in my local SNU church development circle.
As well as regularly sitting in circle for many years, I was very fortunate to be tutored by the fabulous Billy Cook and Gordon Smith. I also attended various Spiritualists' National Union (SNU) courses, and soon my mediumship skills became stronger as I developed to stand platform and to do private sittings.
I now live in Headless Cross in Redditch, and work as a full-time medium. I do private readings (by appointment) and demonstrate platform mediumship at over 50 Spiritualist churches and centres around the UK. I have also appeared throughout England doing evenings of clairvoyance at theatres and other venues.
As an SNU medium I have passed the Platform Accreditation Scheme (PAS ds) for demonstrating and speaking, and have also been awarded Certificates of Recognition (CSNU ds) in both demonstrating mediumship and public speaking by the Spiritualists' National Union.
I also teach mediumship development and have worked as a circle leader, running weekly development classes, at both Redditch Spiritualist Church and Bromsgrove Spiritualist Church, which are both SNU affiliated churches. In March 2015 I was elected into my second year as Church Councillor for the SNU West Midlands District Council.
