How to Find a Real Psychic Medium

Finding Real Psychic Mediums Locally

It is not easy to find high-quality psychics and mediums for private consultations and local psychic readings. Your first step would be to ask your friends – there is nothing like a personal recommendation. Similarly, you can ask at your local New Age shop; assuming they do not have their own psychics working at the shop as you need independent advice.

Real Psychic Medium

What is a Psychic Medium?

A psychic medium is a person who is psychic – has the powers of ESP such as telepathy, clairvoyance and precognition/prophecy – as well as being a medium: someone with the ability to communicate with the dead. Nowadays many people who claim to be mediums but in reality only have psychic abilities. I go into more detail about this further down the page and there are other articles on this site to help you understand what mediumship is all about.

Try Local Psychic fairs

Psychic fairs can be a mixed blessing. Some practitioners at these events are caring and genuine but I have also met some scoundrels. So be very careful if you go down this route. Why not discreetly listen in to readings being given. Is the reader giving any real proof? And does the face of the sitter show she/he is impressed by what is being said

Mediums communicate with the spirit world as opposed to giving life counseling. Their objective is to give you a proof of life after death. They do not usually work in fairs, claim gypsy lineage, use oracles, or go by unusual names like madam Zaza and the like. However, with the advent of mediums working on Television now, everyone wants to be a medium so be wary- very few are.

Finding an accredited medium near to you

The safest route by far is to look into Spiritualism. Although the quality of many mediums working today is poor there are nonetheless a few jewels still working within the movement. I would suggest you visit your local Spiritualist Church and watch a demonstration.

Most of these start at 6.30 on a Sunday evening. Afterward, once the medium has recovered, you may be able to ask them if they give private consultations. Most do not mind you asking.

Finding a local contact through Spiritualism

You are unlikely to see a good medium on your first visit to Spiritualist Church. (Note: Some people in America call it a PSYCHIC CHURCH) There are hundreds of churches and just a handful of good mediums so inevitably they sometimes book substandard practitioners. However, they are all sincere and Spiritualists will quickly spot a fraud. If you persist you will eventually see someone who gives good evidence of life after death and with a little luck, you may be able to get proof either from the meeting or by private appointment.

Spiritualist Church is not intimidating. There is no tambourine shaking or dogma. Nobody will try to make you believe in anything. Some still have hymns and prayers but these are secondary to the main objective of the meeting which is to give proof of the next life. Apart from special events, it is usually free to enter.

Proof of life after death is not something you can order like a pizza; think of it as a spiritual quest, an odyssey to find the truth. If you embark on your search with this attitude you will not only get a message from your loved one but also it may completely transform your philosophy of life and death.

Start your quest by visiting your local Spiritualist Church. Most in the UK advertise on a Saturday night in your local newspaper in the churches section. There is s full worldwide list on this site. Also, the Spiritualist National Union website has a listing of approved Spiritualist mediums.

Spotting the Fakes:

Can Real Psychics predict the future?

The future is not set and is subject to free will – therefore a psychic cannot predict the future. They see the potential future and will guide to you help find the best path forward.

Can true psychics bring together estranged lovers?

A psychic who guarantees your lover’s return is a con-artist and a fake. A psychic can look into your situation using their clairvoyance and then give you sound advice but they cannot influence the situation using their powers. Psychics who offer to cast spells or burn love candles to bring your lover back are fakes.

Can Psychics speak to the dead?

Mediums use clairvoyance, (inner seeing) clairaudience (inner hearing) and clairsentience (inner sensing) to give proof that we survive death. Every sitting with a medium is an experiment – they cannot summon the dead and guarantee results.

What questions will a genuine psychic ask me?

Most real psychics will ask only a very limited number of questions and in most cases none at all. A fraudulent psychic will ask many leading questions so that they can feed the information back to you later in the sitting. Psychics that pump you for lots of information are probably frauds.

Can a professional psychic solve my problems?

Their help and guidance will help you find your way but they cannot wave a magic wand to make everything right. Beware of psychics that offer to lift jinxes, remove curses or unblock chakras. Most of these are expensive and fake ‘cures’ and ‘remedies’.

    • Craig Hamilton-Parker Mar 22, 2018, 2:04 pm

      If if is not psychological then maybe you should both look into Spiritualism and visit your local spiritualist church to learn more.

    I am glad about this article. I am myself psychic and I do only predictions but in the United Kingdom they do a lot of mediumship . Why?

    • Craig Hamilton-Parker Mar 22, 2018, 2:08 pm

      In the UK Spiritualism is still quite active and trains psychics to take the next step and become a medium. I think it has a lot to do with the opportunities available to train and learn.

    I don’t know where to start: I’m skeptical. As my old soul would say I am Houdini looking for the needle in the hay stack. I’d like to not say too much but I will give the spiritual churches a try. Too many people give REAL Mediums a bad name.

    • Craig Hamilton-Parker Mar 20, 2017, 3:31 pm

      Real mediums are few and far between and even in Spiritualism many are not very good at what they do.

Ever since then I feel my dead friends close to me. Is this possible or am I going insane? I would like to have an appointment with a medium. I am in Durham region can you recommend one?

    I believe my house is haunted especially my bedroom. It has become impossible to sleep in my bedroom. How can I find help?

    • Craig Hamilton-Parker Sep 12, 2016, 9:51 am

      Most concerns about haunted places are based on fear and misunderstanding. I suggest your first step is to learn as much as you can and investigate Spiritualism in particular. You can sometimes get help about this sort of issue at your local Spiritualist Church.

  • Desiree Mar 5, 2016, 2:30 am

    I have lost many loved ones and would love to speak to a medium. Most were tragic and unexpected. I truly believe in the afterlife and being Catholic I am sure this is frowned upon by the church, I really need reassurance just for peace. I have witnessed good spirits in my home. I have seen them and thanked them for watching over me. I think I will be forgiven if this is a sin, I would make a donation though I receive disability so I would not be able to squeeze much out of my monthly benefit check. I am unable to locate a medium in my small town and not suppose to drive, any advice on should I do it by phone or online?

    • Craig Hamilton-Parker Mar 22, 2016, 1:24 pm

      We offer phone services from this site though I would suggest that if possible you initially visit a Spiritualist Church on a Sunday and watch a service. This way you will see how it all works. Catholicism does frown upon mediumship though some Catholics gain comfort without losing their faith. The Church of England also has doubts about Spiritualism however the one-time Bishop of Canterbury Cosmo Lang ordered a church report that suggested that Spiritualism and mediumship were not in conflict with Christian ideas. Maybe in time Christianity will change it’s views collectively.

  • Debra Salerno Jan 26, 2016, 3:14 pm

    I really need a good medium near me so I can connect with my mom who passed several years ago. I feel guilty that night for leaving her even though she insisted because it was getting dark. That next morning she passed and wasn’t sick at all. My husband used to make tiny crosses out of palm leaves from Palm Sunday and we put them in the mattresses. When I moved I couldn’t find them. We have moved twice and they were gone. Now the other day I get up from bed and in the floor right in front of me is one of the crosses but the top part is missing. I received bad results from my heart that day. My mattresses are brand new so it wasn’t stuck to the mattress this concerns me.

    • Craig Hamilton-Parker Jan 26, 2016, 5:34 pm

      I cannot make recommendations to find a medium near to you but I suggest you start your quest at a spiritualist church or ask questions in our community area and forums. I personally think you are reading far to much into the broken cross. Its not an omen.

  • Mary Nov 18, 2015, 7:57 pm

    How does a phone reading work for a Medium? Help me to understand how they could channel that long distance without contact, I have been through so much I don’t want to be the fool and get ripped off.

    • Craig Hamilton-Parker Nov 25, 2015, 3:19 pm

      A medium communicates with a spirit through their intuition so they do not necessarily need the sitter present with them.

  • Leanne Oct 15, 2015, 1:18 pm

    Hi my name is Leanne and I recently consulted in two different psychics online. they have told me that the cause of my problems was negative energy or a spell influencing my life and it is coming from someone close to me. They offered to help get rid of this spell/energy but for a high cost. They warned me that if I do not allow them to help then my life will get worst. I’m really worried as I have struggled a lot throughout my life. Not sure what to do.

    • Craig Hamilton-Parker Oct 26, 2015, 12:59 pm

      Paying money to people like this will bring you no benefit whatsoever.

  • Jane Oct 6, 2015, 8:13 am

    My sister who is quite spiritual herself is having a real hard time, she believes there is something or someone trying to prevent her from getting on with her life, she is convinced every time she tries to do anything they intervene in a bad way. Do you believe this is possible and if so how does she remove this bad spirit, she asked her own spiritual guides or friends, but she says they cannot help her. Please can you give me some advice as this is really destroying my sister’s life.

    • Craig Hamilton-Parker Oct 26, 2015, 1:47 pm

      If you feel that other people’s bad intent and negative thoughts are holding you back then the best way to counter this is with happy and positive thoughts of your own. To bring good fortune and blessing into your life the simplest way is to do good to others. Go help a stranger or give something to charity. This will help you on a psychological and spiritual level.

  • sue Jun 14, 2015, 1:33 pm

    I am very confused about the afterlife my mum passed away 33 years ago and I have reads that when you die our loved ones are waiting for us in heaven but I have also read that you get reborn after so long so how after 33 years could my mum be waiting in heaven for me when its my time.

    • Craig Hamilton-Parker Jun 29, 2015, 1:22 pm

      I have written about this in detail in my book What to Do When You Are Dead. Do a search of this site for the word Reincarnation and you will find a number of extracts that will answer your question.

    I have been searching for a true Psychic/Medium for a long time now. I live in the United States, in Northern California, in a VERY small town. I know you said to seek out a Spiritualist Church, and see if I can find one there. I was reading your list on the link you gave but I didn’t find any remotely close to me. I am from Cottonwood California, can you give me any advise? I am in Desperate need of some spiritual guidance!! I am sure you might know why too. Thank you so much for your time!

    • Craig Hamilton-Parker Nov 19, 2014, 12:09 pm

      I’m sorry but I do not know. Why not try a search for the term ‘Spiritualist Churches in California’ and then email the closest one. They may know of a medium working in your area. Write to the ‘Mediums Secretary’. Asking a church for help directly will help you avoid some of the fakes.

  • Manny Nov 17, 2014, 8:42 am

    I’m trying to look for a legit psychic medium that would listen to an audio I have with me. Which is very strange. The persons voice sounds clear in whisper but yet when she started her voice kinda glitch and went normal. And then I though I could hear say something like check and either it or up but its not clear enough. It was a voice-mail I received when my wife tried to call while I had my phone in air-plane mode. I spoke to a paranormal expert eventually as she claims. Yet she feels its not paranormal and its just a trick or bad call. Is there I can have a psychic mediums opinion on that?

  • Anne Oct 6, 2014, 9:19 pm

    Thank-you for this honest article.

  • Helen Sep 6, 2014, 2:49 pm

    I am needing a home visit from a medium/spiritualist in Lincolnshire. I don’t need a future reading but a “cleansing” or blessing for our new home and my family, who would you suggest please?

  • Charles Palmer Feb 23, 2014, 3:27 pm

    The only way one will eliminate fake psychics is to offer these services free of charge. After all it is claimed that psychic powers is a gift one receives, so how can one sell such a special gift when it was freely given? Many people are currently being robbed from their hard earned money by those who claim to be Psychics. Should a Psychic turn out to be true, it is most certain that the client will then gladly pay the required fee, but not before results are seen. There are many people who are seeking serious help, but are told to pay high fees before they will be assisted. Any human who refuses to help another human who is having problems free of charge, is no human at all, but a cruel monster. How can any human consider the value of money above the life of another human being? Psychics, mediums, spiritualists, spell breakers, whatever, should use their powers for human life advantage and not for financial advantage.

    • Craig Hamilton-Parker Feb 24, 2014, 1:21 pm

      The same could be applied to dentists, doctors, surgeons, priests and really to any job or vocation. Every professional person has to be paid for their work but it is good also to give some back for free too – that’s why many of us work for free within Spiritualism and may also give free readings here on our chat rooms. Some work on a donations only basis but from what I have seen this rarely works. For example at Spiritualist church I have seen people who I know for certain are quite wealthy only put 50p in the collection. I would be interested to know if you would be prepared to do your job for free or just for donations?

      • Pauline mascolo Mar 24, 2016, 10:09 am

        Dear Craig, I read your last post about giving something back, I remember being asked by the school what I would like to do when leaving school. I wanted to be a nurse I wanted to make people better I was told I was not intelligent enough so what else I became a hairdresser because I could make people feel good about themselves I have been doing hair for people who need help with self esteem and just to listen to there problems and try to help! Without payment!

        I love to give back what life has given to me I have been doing this for 40 years now and I hope at least for another 10 Years. I think you are a very special person God Bless you Always Pauline xxxxx

        • Craig Hamilton-Parker Mar 24, 2016, 1:15 pm

          I’m not special. Just talking common sense that can bring a happy life. Take what you need and give something back. Giving is in your own best interest!

  • Maria Jul 13, 2013, 8:27 pm

    I live in Franklin, Tn. Near Nashville, Tn. I am looking for an honest, gifted psychic in this area. Can you offer any help? I have a serious family issue and desperately need help to resolve these problems.

  • BJ Oct 28, 2012, 9:27 am

    Having lost my beloved wife I sought a “soul communication” with her via a lady in Canada. The result was very distressing and cost me £60. It was abundantly obvious that the message had not come from my wife. Just another Internet scam I guess.

  • Amon Oct 9, 2012, 9:21 pm

    Hi Craig. Interesting article. I’m now aware that psychics cannot predict the future but its very common that psychics, in their defence, only says what the spirit shows them. I’ve had mixed messages from different psychics thorough text psychics scheme. Obviously I wanted to know if there’s a reconciliation with my ex-partner. Two psychics said they see it but at present, in reality it’s showing different. It makes it hard for me to believe if its real or not. I just needed to know the truth to help me make a decision even if its on my free will.

    • Craig Hamilton-Parker Oct 15, 2012, 2:03 pm

      When consulting psychics I really think it is best to look for guidance and base your decisions upon your own free will.

  • myra Grzebyk Sep 4, 2012, 3:41 am

    I wish I could meet with the two of you – you sound so great. There are so many things in my life that I need help with. I live in usa any people on East Coast you could recommend?

  • Rajesh Geer Aug 4, 2012, 5:39 am

    Can you say if the founder of the is a genuine realized guru? His writings are new and often conflict with orthodox Hinduism. Yet this tantric master has a large following and many westerners too. Problem is many are criticising him some have supported. How to know truth? He has passed away but promised to help his devotees from the astral. Can you tell if is guru is very elevated spiritually? Why is he so controversial?

    • Craig Hamilton-Parker Aug 8, 2012, 5:56 pm

      Finding a real guru is just as difficult as finding a real psychic. Many of the great gurus and also great mediums and psychics have been very criticized. I think of Sai Baba, Ramakrishna, Swami Rama and many others. Even the Buddha had people plot to kill him in his lifetime. Real psychics and mediums such as D. D. Home were also the subject of ridicule and hate. Often people’s opinions are twisted by their own materialist view of the world or religious preconceptions. I cannot pass an opinion about Anandamarga as on the one hand I do not know enough about the organisation but also because with spiritual issues you have to find out what is real for yourself by your own inner explorations.

  • Robert Park Aug 2, 2012, 11:12 pm

    Being once a member of the National Spiritual Church I have had many readings from Mediums and have also had readings from Fortune Tellers. Some of those readings were exceptionally accurate while others were questionable; indeed, some of the readers were imposters. Some readers can predict the near future while others can predict far into the future. It is only with the passing of time does one recognise the accuracy of the predictions. Sadly, some people find the readings disappointing.

    • Craig Hamilton-Parker Aug 2, 2012, 11:26 pm

      Some of the Spiritualists visiting my site are vehemently against mediums making predictions. They argue that Spiritualists believe in personal responsibility and thereby Free Will which implies that we can change the future and therefore it is not set and cannot be predicted.

      I differ as I tend to question free will as it may be an illusion. I appreciate though that when people come for psychic reading predictions they tend to want to know that everything will be okay rather than know the future.

      If the future is unalterable through free will I’m not sure I’d want to know about it!

      Been enjoying your posts by the way.

  • hazel allison Jul 1, 2012, 9:20 am

    I would just like to say I have spent hundreds of pounds on phone calls to different physics and got into debt for nothing. I have been through some really hard times and wanted to see some light at the end of the tunnel. None of what I was told ever came true I’m so upset that I find it hard to believe that anyone can read our future or talk to our dead families. I used to be a firm beliver now I don’t know anymore.

    • Craig Jul 1, 2012, 9:58 pm

      I doubt very much that this was one of our recommended psychics as we only ever advise about the future and make a point not to predict the future. Sadly, there suddenly seems to be thousands of ‘psychics’ appearing from nowhere nowadays whereas in the past they were few and far between. I think it’s clearly important you are careful which service you use as some unscrupulous services will employ just about anyone to man the phones.

      • P May 25, 2015, 5:47 pm

        Aside from free will, how does anyone explain the prophets? They not only predicted the future but were accurate. What gift did they have that allowed them to know the future?

        • Craig Hamilton-Parker Mar 24, 2016, 1:10 pm

          Our future is determined by our karma. Prophets may see the karma of a person and the likely outcome if the person does not remedy the negative effects of their karma.

          • Carlen Apr 20, 2017, 1:42 pm

            How do you improve your karma?

          • Craig Hamilton-Parker Apr 27, 2017, 1:19 pm

            Initially by helping others and doing service. It is also improved with spiritual work on yourself such as meditation and kriya.
