Sessions with Family & Friends

Losing a loved one is a hard thing to come to terms with and sometimes if a person is open to it they may wish to consult a medium to reconnect with them in the Spirit world. Booking and preparing for a session can be a daunting task and quite often a person may not want to be alone during the session. As such I often get asked the question of, “Is it okay if my partner comes in with me?” or “Can my other family members join me in the session?” So here is the answer…


In short, YES it is okay for them to come in and join in on the session. It is totally understandable that you may all be wanting to hear from the one person in the Spirit world so why not be there when you try to contact them.  However, before you decided to jump out of the chair and rope your partner or family into joining in there are a few things you need to understand and consider before taking this course of action. The below are some of my observations of previous sessions as well some of my own personal rules:

    1. Bring people who are ready and open

I love the thought of helping everyone and having them experience the magic of Spirit. However, the truth is that this is not everyone’s cup of tea. Bringing in someone who is still grieving heavily or is cynical of the process will probably end up causing more harm then good. Mediums are not magicians and cannot simply wave a magic wand and make everyone happy. It is a process and must be respected. You must remember that Spirit are wanting to contact and speak to you and not the medium. If you are not willing to work with the medium then you will be decreasing your chances of a successful

     2. You don’t choose who comes through

Whilst it would be fantastic to be able to contact every person that we would like to, unfortunately its not quite that simple. When you come to a session you can certainly come with the hope of connecting with the one or two people you have in mind, but you can not expect them to come through. Whilst a medium always does the best to connect you to the loved one you want, no medium can ever guarantee it. What most clients do not realize is that mediumship is about healing and whilst we make the call to the Spirit World, we cannot force them to answer.

The other thing to keep in mind when contemplating having a session with other people is ‘who are you bringing with you?‘ Think about it….most people have one or two passed loved ones and now that your bringing someone with you can at least double that! If you are bringing a family member of course this might make it easier as you will have someone in common. However, if they have friends that have also passed over it does not mean that they won’t pop in and crash the party. Also remember that in-laws might also want to come through and say hello. If you are bringing in a friend for moral support it is even more important to consider this factor as their own personal friends and family have the chance to come through too. They can even take over the session. This is not by choice, but where the energy needs to go. Its not all bad though, just look at the following.

4. Two heads are better than one

2-headsThe biggest advantage to having a reading with a family member or friend is that they can help you out when you need it. It never ceases to amaze me how many times a person will look at me with confusion on their face after telling them something about their loved one. They simply just cannot place the information, but then their friend chimes in recalls the detail or memory and suddenly the penny drops. Having a mediumship session can and will be a little rough on your brain as the information coming through can be short, sharp, to the point or completely cryptic. Not only are you trying to listen to the information for the first time, but you are trying to make sense of it at the same time. Some specific dates or details might be mentioned you will be asked about their meaning right their and then. It can be very taxing, but when you have someone with you they can certainly help take the pressure off.


So if yo have looked at all these factors and have weighed them up carefully and would still like to go through with a session them I personally do not have a problem with you bringing someone with you. Here are a couple of other little things yo might be asking:

  • All I ask is that you inform me at the time of booking that this is your intention (I need to rearrange my room with extra chairs etc).
  • There is no extra charge for bringing some extra, but if you want a family reading (3 or more) then that is a group session and need to be organized separately.

If you have any further questions then please do not hesitate to ask.
