• Barbara has had the gift of mediumship from being a young child but only started to use it at the age of thirty. For the last 26 years she has involved herself in the spiritualist movement by working closely with her local church as the President and has worked on the rostrum in other churches, demonstrating her mediumship. It was a natural progression for her to then move on to doing private readings for those who sought her gift, along with evenings of clairvoyance to cater for the people who did not want to attend a church but still wanted contact with the spirit world.
She taught her craft by holding awareness classes and workshops in her church before going on to hold private events. Barbara went on to shape her life around her gift and qualified as a holistic therapist and went on to teach aromatherapy, reflexology and indian head massage at her local college. During this time she undertook a degree course ‘Certificate in Education’ and studied councelling and transactional analysis.
After qualifying in holistic therapies and with her interest in all things spiritual she opened her own therapy centre which then lead on to her studying beauty therapy and adding these services to her business. As a medium she was also drawn to healing but found that she connected more with Reiki healing as opposed to spiritual healing and went on to become a Reiki Master and added reiki attunement courses to her growing portfolio of ‘gifts’.
Throughout her life, mediumship and her relationship with the spirit world has led Barbara to write a book about her experiences and used the stories of her own and clients’ lives to highlight issues that many of us face in life. It was always a ‘burning’ thought at the back of her mind that she should put pen to paper and as most people who sought her gift would ask “How did you know you were able to communicate with spirit?” and “How do you actually do it?” she found it inevitable that she would have to write this down and explain to those who are interested just exactly what it is like to be a medium. She felt compelled to tell the stories of her clients and why they sought her gift and what issues of life come from these meetings and believes that this burning compulsion comes as a strong push from the spirit world for her to tell it they want her to.
