Frequently Asked Questions

What’s the difference between a psychic reading and Mediumship?
A reading from Richard encompasses both a psychic reading and mediumship. On a psychic level during your reading Richard will tune into and look at what’s happening in your life now and what trends of energy you have coming up for you. Richard’s style of reading is not so much to predict the future, but to tap into your life’s energy and help you understand some of the lessons, issues, and challenges you are dealing with now and have encountered in the past. The goal is to remove blockages of energy to facilitate doing and being your personal best. Questions that are not answered during the course of your reading may be asked at the end of your reading. It is advisable to prepare for your reading by thinking about what areas of your life you would like to receive some guidance on.
As Richard works mediumistically he can focus his energy on making connections with your loved ones and friends in the spirit word to provide validations of our loved ones continued existence and involvement in our lives. As a Spiritualist Medium and member of the Spiritualist’s National Union Richard strives to provide evidence of life eternal.

What is psychometry?
A major tool available to Psychics and Mediums is that of psychometry. This is the ability to define the character, surroundings and influences of an article by holding the object and tuning into its energies. Richard had found over the years that the use of psychometry can strengthen the psychic and mediumistic information he receives during a reading. By holding an object or personal belonging such as a piece of jewellery or item of clothing Richard is usually able to discern facts such as information about the owner and describe the relationship between him or her and the object. The impressions received can vary in intensity. Psychometry is a useful tool for focussing the mind and making connections with the spirit world or on a psychic level.
Richard can also work with photographs in a similar way, if you would like Richard to tune into a particular person on a psychic or mediumistic level he will be happy to work with a photograph/s in this way during your reading.

What is Cosmic Ordering / The Law of Attraction?
Everything in the universe is made up of energy, everything we see, feel, hear and touch is made up of energy; this includes our thoughts and feelings – these too are energy. Some people seem to be naturally lucky; the sort of people who are always in the right place at the right time, always fall on their feet and always attract the right people and situations into their lives. Whether or not they know it these people who lead such charmed lives are tuned into the energy of the law of attraction. Working with the universe in this harmonious way they have an aspect of control over their lives that most people don’t have.

The law of attraction or cosmic ordering is way of harnessing the power of positive thinking and the creative energy of our thoughts to manifest whatever we desire. There are no limits, you can ask for anything, a new love, a new house or job, money or wealth, health or healing... whatever you desire can be yours. The only demand is that you be positive, be open and be at ease, requesting your cosmic order without worry or attachment to the outcome.

Richard has helped many of his clients to use the power of cosmic ordering to change their lives for the better helping them to connect with the flow of the universe to bring positive people and situations into their life, more money, improved health and happiness.

What is Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP)?
NLP is the practice of understanding how people organise their thinking, feeling, language and behaviour to produce the results they do. NLP provides people with a methodology to model outstanding performances achieved by geniuses and leaders in their field. NLP is a bit like an “owners manual for the brain”! NLP is a series of insights and skills with which you can actively use your mind and emotions to run your life more successfully and to communicate with people with ‘extra-ordinary’ effectiveness. Richard has studied the subject of NLP extensively and completed study and qualifications to be accredited as a licensed NLP practitioner (with the international NLP society). He is committed to using NLP techniques to improve his own life and strives to help others do the same.

Is Richard ever not able to make a link psychically or mediumisticlly during a reading?
Whilst it is Richard’s desire and intention that everyone who has a reading with him will receive the help they need, there are never any guarantees made. Nearly all readings ‘work’ but there are rare occasions when they don’t. No medium can guarantee that they can contact specific people in Spirit or that you will receive the answers you want to hear or require. Richard works with integrity and honesty and should he feel he cannot ‘connect’ with you then the reading will be terminated and no charge for the reading is made.
