Connecting with Spirit.

i help people Connect With Spirit

Whether it is passing on messages of hope and encouragement from loved ones who are now in Spirit or helping YOU establish and nurture your own personal connection with Spirit so that you can interpret the signs better.

As an evidential medium with over 30 years of experience, this is a deeply personal mission for me. That’s why my readings, my workshops and my shows are all delivered with fierce compassion and commitment in true Val style.

Think of me as your direct telephone line to the Spirit world.

5 Minutes More: Memoir of a World-Class Medium

5 Minutes More

When I was 7 years old, I woke up in the night and saw my nana – who had passed away not long before. To say it was scary is an understatement, as I had no idea what was going on.

As it turns out, Nana’s visits were the start of what would be an amazing life practicing mediumship, connecting the living with their loved ones who had passed on to Spirit.

But for a long time, I hesitated to tell anyone what I was seeing, afraid that people would think I was mad. Even as I grew more confident in my skills as a medium, I lacked the courage to reveal what I did.

With time, I realised it was only my own fear keeping me back from achieving my true potential. Now, I help people around the world to know that while their love ones may have passed away, they are not truly gone – they are still in Spirit, waiting to connect.

As straightforward as this sounds, learning that your passed loved ones still want to help can be difficult to accept – but by helping others to do so, so many people are able to engage in a truly powerful healing process. All it really takes is learning how to tap into ourselves. For both us and Spirit, this is a wonderful process.

The years I’ve connected with Spirit haven’t been all smooth sailing – but I hope to use the pitfalls I’ve encountered along the way to help you avoid experiencing the same thing, whether in teaching or working with others.

My hope is that in reading this book, you’ll recognise how important and exciting it can be to receive communication from your passed loved one, even if at times it’s more like piecing together a jigsaw puzzle than relaying someone’s words. The truth is, with the right training and encouragement, anyone can do this.


Have you just lost a loved one and have all sorts of questions? Are you looking for signs that they are still there, that they are happy? Are you looking for closure?  OR are you looking for answers regarding work,  a difficult relationship, or other issues in your life that need clarity? 

Here’s how a reading can help.


Do you want to strengthen your ability to connect and better tune in to the message and evidence from spirit? Or to make sense of those voices in your head, the visions that you see? 

My workshops help you explore and grow your intuition, your psychic & mediumship abilities in a safe, protected, comfortable way.
