About psychic readings

What is psychic reading?
A psychic reading is a way of getting practical insight and advice from an objective source about issues you may be facing or questions you may have. It can be a way to discover what may happen next. More often though it defines the choices you have and emphasizes your freedom of choice. A reading can show you certain paths that may not have been clear to you before, or offer a different and helpful perspective on your situation. Readings are given over the telephone or via SMS or live chat by our experienced Friends. All readings are for entertainment only and you must be over 18.

What sort of people are Psychic Friends?
To some degree everyone is psychic. We all have natural intuition or “sixth sense”. However, as well as being able to interpret non-verbal communication for instance voice tone and speech rhythms, experienced psychics tune in to the energies emanating from people (sometimes called their aura) and can derive insights from this energy. Several tools such as Tarot cards, runes and palmistry can be used in conjunction with this natural ability. Thus all our Psychic Friends adhere to a strict code of conduct to ensure that any consultation is appropriate and helpful.

How do telephone readings work?
Telephone readings work in much the same way as face to face readings. The Psychic Friend tunes into the person they are guiding and observes their natural energies. In addition, they may use non verbal cues, such as voice tone and speech rhythms to derive additional insights. Some Psychic Friends use other tools such as Tarot cards, astrology or crystals to focus or add strength to their insights. Thus, there is no need for the person receiving a reading to be present in the same room as the psychic.

Psychic readings and your health
Our experienced Psychic Friends can give excellent guidance on your wellbeing. You will find them ready to discuss how your lifestyle combines with your natural energies to affect you physically and spiritually. However, it is important to remember that few psychics are medically qualified. If you are ill, please seek professional medical advice.

Psychic readings and financial advice
Psychic Friends can provide you with excellent guidance on managing your career and money. They will also discuss how your personal strengths and natural energies combine to influence your material success. Nevertheless, our Friends are not qualified to give you financial or investment advice. If you need this, please seek professional advice.

How long will my reading take?
If you call on a UK or Irish premium rate line, your call will end automatically after 19.6 minutes. This is in accordance with the regulations laid down by PhonepayPlus, which state that Premium Line calls can cost a maximum of £30. PhonepayPlus is the body that regulates providers on Premium Line telephone services in the UK. In Eire, callers will hear a prompt at 12.5 minutes (30 Euros spend) and will need to actively choose to continue with their consultation by pressing a button on their handset. Premium lines are regulated in Eire by Comreg and further information is available at Calls paid for using a credit card are not regulated in the same way.

What should I do before a consultation with Psychic Friends?
Before a reading, try to prepare yourself and your environment. This can be especially helpful if you haven't had a reading before or you're consulting a Psychic Friend that you haven’t spoken to before. Firstly, create a peaceful environment. Then think carefully about why you’re calling. If several things trouble you, or you want several questions answered, prioritise your reasons for calling. Remember, when you're distracted by noise coming from other people, traffic, television or the radio, it’s hard for the Psychic Friend to tune into your energy. So make sure you're in a peaceful environment before making the call.  

About Psychic Friends

What different types of Friends are there?
There are three main types of Psychic Friend:
  • Astrologer. An astrologer draws up an astrological map from a birthdate, time and place of birth for a person or an event, like a storm or an eclipse. Mapping the horoscope requires scientific skills. After this, the astrologer can interpret the meaning of the planets in the 12 signs of the zodiac, and the 12 houses of the horoscope, to identify individual tendencies and lifetime potentials.
  • Clairvoyant. A clairvoyant has 'clear sight' - the ability to see a spirit person or people and objects some distance away and describe details about them to others; they may also be able to see past or future events.
  • Medium. A medium can serve as an intermediary between the living and the dead or other spirit beings, contacting them and asking questions on behalf of the living.
If you want to talk to a particular type of Psychic Friend, you can find them using our search facility on most pages.

How can I find the right Psychic Friend for me?
Finding the right Friend is a very personal matter. You need someone you feel comfortable with, who understands your issues and is competent to help you. You can choose from a large number of Friends. Each has a detailed description on their own profile page. To use our search facility (available on most pages) select the attributes you want. For instance, you may want to select a particular type of psychic, such as an astrologer or a medium. Alternatively, you might want experience in a particular area, i.e. money or family or one who uses a particular tool, like the Tarot cards. Limit your search to Friends who are currently available. You can combine your requirements by, for instance, searching for a medium who uses Tarot cards. Do remember, though, the more selective you are, the less chance you have of finding a suitable Friend. You have a better chance if you ignore one or two of the search options. Another option is to search using keywords. If you want to find Friends who use runes, simply type 'runes' into the keyword search box. If you want to find a Psychic Friend by name, simply type their name into the keyword search.
