Val is very professional and for anyone considering seeing her I would definitely recommend her. Thank you Val for everything you do x

    Val is an amazing Evidential Medium! She truly connects to your loved ones in the afterlife. You'll feel like they are right there with you as Val brings through the messages of love and laughter. I'd highly recommend Val Hood if you're wanting to connect to loved ones or just looking for a little guidance.

  • Julie Day

    I had the pleasure of hosting Val's first "VIP Afternoon" in the comfort of my home yesterday. We had 17 people and she gave loving and uplifting messages from our loved ones in the spriit world for almost two hours. It was a very special experience to share with family and friends. I hope this is the first of many she does for people, as there seems to be a growing desire for people to learn more about what lies beyond the veil. I would highly recommend the experience to anyone thinking of hosting their own intimate event with Val.

  • Jodi, Victoria, Australia

    Just wanted to again say a BIG THANK YOU for your reading yesterday. Your accuracy was amazing, and even though I’ve always felt my loved ones who had passed around me it was nice to get that validation that I wasn’t going Crazy… Speaking with you was like having a “Cosmic Phone call” from them and it was so very much needed and appreciated. You’re a very talented lady and providing people like me with this service is truly the ultimate in selflessness. You're a gem!

  • Rob Emms, Businessman, Dubai

    Thank you so much for our wonderful reading last week. We all enjoyed the experience and the boys were so comfortable in your home. My Mum has very recently passed away and I got some fairly clear messages that she wanted to communicate with me!! You were so wonderful and the experience was one I will never forget. I am now so interested in this area that I will be attending your event tonight at the Harlequin in Redhill. Thank you so much and I look forward to seeing you again soon.

  • Kim

    You told us about the book you read called “The Secret”, and the feathers in your garden… Well, I decided to try it for myself. I made a plea to Spirit to please send me a feather, as some sort of validation that they are around. And they heard me! I woke up yesterday morning, opened my curtains, and something drew my attention to the window cill (which I never normally pay any attention to)…..There, it was, a single soft, fluffy white feather. I can truly say…I BELIEVE, I BELIEVE, I BELIEVE…Just like in “Shrek”!!! It made me smile, and I’ll treasure that little feather forever. It was just what I needed, and has kept me positive, and made me realise that life is actually quite amazing, and that I should be grateful for each and every day. Thank you for sharing your gift and touching my life without even realising it…..Bless you.

  • Eleana, Businesswoman

    Dear Val I would like to thank you for the reading you did for me yesterday afternoon. I found it fascinating, accurate, insightful and very comforting. I appreciated your sensitivity and your gentleness.

  • K

    I should extend my thoughts below on the reading you gave me on Monday, in that, listening to the tape again, I realise how much “truth” you have conveyed with such positivity and clarity, and how beneficial that has been. Since the reading, I have had a real sense of peace and hope. That is a real and valuable experience to have had.

  • M

    …thank you so much for having made such impressive contact with my dearest buddy, Betty Shine, and my darling Mum and my lovely husband. I felt comforted by their presence and advice!

  • L

    Dear Val I wanted to say how very pleased that I was that I came to see you for a reading. I had felt very low since the death of my dear friends and it was an enormous comfort to me to hear that they were no longer in pain and at peace. You have an incredible gift and I am very lucky that I found you. Thank you Val for my reading it was a great comfort to me. F

    I wanted to write and express my sincere gratitude and thanks for the reading?I had no idea if you would be able to contact someone who had passed 8 weeks ago but I got a very clear picture and received some very comforting information.

  • K

    I came to see you earlier this year after I lost my mum and although I found it very emotional, it gave me such comfort that I was intrigued to come along to one of your stage shows. Towards the end of the evening I was feeling really deflated that I had not received any messages …that was, until, you spoke to a lady who had lost her daughter under truly tragic circumstances. The way in which you came across to that lady was absolutely outstanding. Your delivery of her message was handled with such confidence and compassion it was incredible. Also, the way in which you manage to still raise a smile in such emotional circumstances is truly a credit to you. It was this very last message that has given me yet again, such an enormous amount of comfort…I did not leave feeling devastated at all…I was so glad that lady heard from her daughter and was glad she had her moment and not me…I’m not quite sure about you having the best job in the world, but you most certainly are the best person for it! Thank you.

  • Helen, Victoria, Australia

    Thank you Val. This reading did mean so much to me you being in contact with my parents and it is so nice to hear that they are happy together in the spirit world. You are just brilliant.

  • R

    Thank you so much for the reading you did for my mum, sister, and me today. It was absolutely fantastic! There were so many things that you said that you couldn’t have known – not that I didn’t believe that it’s possible to contact those that have passed over, but it proved that you were blessed with the gift of being able to do it. It must be amazing!

  • Kaaren

    She is a constant source of encouragement, reassurance and comfort as a way of being in the world and this flows abundantly into all her work.  In a way it can be said that Val gives people the incentive, support and guidance to live their best lives. In doing that. This is what happens when you live your passion and trust your life purpose.  There is a deep love exchange when Val works.

    After a session with Val you come out living deeper and richer. This feeling should occur when you consult a good medium. If it doesn’t, you might like to try with someone else. It is worth it for the sake of adding significant meaning to your life. Let me repeat, Val helps you live your best life.

  • Blair & Narelle, QLD

    You have the knowledge to stand confidently with no ego and have the total backing of the divine universe – you know your work – you love what you do, you touch the hearts and souls of everyone in the room and you shine.  You are diplomatic & tactful and have the skills to communicate – you know how to deal with people in an audience.  You have a true connection  – not only with the messages – you take command / control of your event and are like the power source that runs everything.  You have the ability to connect to the person and spirit and hand the message in a way that is totally accepted – a wow moment for them.

  • Scott Alexander-King, Author teacher, animal psychic and zoomancer

    I am proud to state that – from personal experience – Val Hood is an extremely accurate psychic medium. I lost two treasured friends to a car accident over 20 years ago and I’ve sought countless opportunities to make contact with them since their death. Of all the mediums I’ve sat with, only three have nailed it (in my mind) with absolutely no doubt in my mind – Gordon Smith, Lisa Williams and … Val Hood. So if you were to ask me, ‘Do you know of a medium that’s both accurate and ethical here in Australia?’ I’d have to say – from personal experience – ‘Yes, Val Hood’.

Val Hood is an amazing Medium, the evidence she will give you from your passed loved ones, will fill your heart up with so much joy. Val is also a Spiritual Tutor, her workshops will take you to the next level with your mediumship. Before you know it, you will be Demonstrating at Spiritualist Churches under the watchful eye of Val Hood.

  • Emily Hallinan

    Val is a warm and encouraging teacher equal to the many tutors I have studied with at the Arthur Findlay College. If you are willing to learn and practice, you will walk away from Vals courses with more confidence in your own ability to be the best medium you can be.

  • Lynette Lambden

    I have been fortunate enough to have done 2 workshops now with Val and seen her demonstrate her Mediumship on several occasions and she is absolutely phenomenal. If you are looking to take your Mediumship skills to the next level I would strongly recommend doing a workshop with Val. She is kind, caring , funny and so supportive. You will be given so many opportunities to practice, with Val consistently offering advice and encouragement. I consider having trained with Val an absolute privilege. She has helped take my own skills further than I thought I could go and given me the confidence to work publicly.

  • Lorraine Hughes

    I had an amazing experience with Val and the group. Val is a caring, nurturing, warm teacher, puts you at ease and 'navigates' you through.

Can't thank you enough Val. xxx

  • Michael Spiniello

    I have particated in Vals mentoring workshop and found it to be an amazing experience. Val teaches and guides from a place of authenticity, which is a rarity. From the start we were all put through our paces, stretching our mediumship to levels above and beyond what even I thought I could do. Her knowledge of mediumship is huge, as evidence from many years of training and teaching. I am fortunate to have found Val, and have attended her workshops as well as seen her demonstrate mediumship to large crowds of people on numerous occasions. I look forward to continuing my training with her as I have found the best teacher!

  • Jenny Palmer

    with this being my second workshop with Val is testimony to her teaching, and teaching style. Val adapts the exercises to support the group's progressive development individually and as a group with feedback that is personal and relevant to each individual as well as for the group as a whole. She is vivacious and bright, supportive and approachable. Highly recommended if you are looking to grow in your evidential mediumship practice and abilities with someone who really cares about you.

  • Simone Jones

    Val is an incredible medium and teacher. Val will push your mediumship to another level. I would not be where I am today if it wasn’t for Val pushing me and believing in me. Val will make you work hard but the rewards of your hard work will get you places. Val has knocked on the door of the spiritual churches and created space for us to work as fledgling students gaining experience to become advance level students/mediums. Val creates the opportunity to make things happen if you want. I’ve met some lovely people both in class and out in the field working. Thank you for all the opportunities you have created for me but most of all “Thank you” for believing in me. Simone 🌸

  • Mira Korhonen-Low

    I did a workshop with Val during the lock down and thoroughly enjoyed it. With Val's teaching style you are made to feel comfortable straight away. Straight to the point and with the best interests of her students at heart, and an added dash of humour .. what more could you ask for 🙂

    The 8 weeks course with Val was incredible. She is caring, funny and straightforward. It's a once a week class. She is an amazing teacher who speaks with clarity, authenticity and professionalism. I was amazed that I could learn so much and become confident in the information I was receiving from the spirit world. It was a phenomenon experience I would continue taking courses this year to advance this skill and knowledge. Thank you for sharing your gifts with us !

    I have participated in Val’s online mediumship classes and found them to be great - teaching us to be evidential while showing us how we can improve and most of all in a supportive, positive way.

  • Michelle Dicker

    I have been working with Val for over two years now, I love the way she works, she shows so much dedication to bringing out the best in her students, she is straight to the point with throwing us in the deep end but with much love and support.

    Testimonial
    Val has been instrumental in progressing my mediumship to a higher level. Her teachings have challenged me in a good way. She has encouraged me to develop new ways of presenting my evidence and with gentle guidance she has facilitated the whole group to work as a team and support each other both in class and online outside of class.
    Val has given us the confidence to step outside of our comfort zone and to Trust and believe what we are receiving.
    The online classes have been wonderful in connecting us across the world and make new friends.
    Thank you Val for giving me the opportunity to join your mentoring classes.
  • Michelle Dicker

    I have been with Val for over 12 months now, I love the way she works, she shows so much dedication to bringing out the best in her students, she is straight to the point with throwing us in the deep end but with much love and support. Val's way of teaching is fabulous, she has had students that have never experienced working with mediumship before and in the first class they are picking up information. Fabulous.

  • Robert & Maureen London

    My wife and I, are Spiritualist Reverends with many decades of experience. We find it an honour, everytime Val Hood is on our church and centre platform. She is a devoted Spiritualist Medium. Her Spirit connection is pure and honest. She is one of the most dedicated soul to be in service to both Spirit and her audience. Her demonstration of Evidential Mediumship is pure truth, from the world of Spirit, to the psychical plane. There we are honoured to highly recommend Val Hood for private and public demonstrations.

  • Maria

    I have been searching for a regular workshop to attend for over 3years. I have heard about Val and her teachings, in June 2016. I attended my first workshop with Val. I was so happy as Val offered the teachings I was looking for. Exercises after exercises, straight into it. Val would explain each exercise and how to connect with Spirit, some of the exercises had a twist to them, which added some fun. My connection with Spirit is expanding and I am seeing the changes within me, my confidence is growing with Spirit and myself. When you find the right teacher everything just clicks and falls into place, Val makes you feel so welcome. I can highly recommend Val’s workshops, it’s a great place of learning and meeting like minded people

  • Sophie

    The workshop last Saturday was brilliant. This time, we were pushed even further with our information and evidence and the feedback received from Val and the other fellow students were very supportive and encouraging. I have been coming to Val’s workshop for a year now and each workshop is unique and catered for our individual development in our mediumship abilities. I am so blessed and humble to be apart of “Team Val” and to have the opportunity to learn from her, as Val truly walks her talk and also to be apart of my tribe, fellow like minded group whom are so supportive, encouraging and fun to be with. The workshop environment is always fantastic. It is comfortable, safe, fun and we get to work hard as well. Thank you Val for being a great teacher, friend and mentor.

  • Denise

    I love the individual mediumship mentoring Val offers. Her groups are small for a reason and getting personal tips and tweaks to my mediumship is exactly what I need right now. Val attracts just beautiful people and the group is always so supporting and helpful. Not an ego in sight.

  • Dave

    Val is unlike any spiritual teacher I have had over the years.

    Firstly, as an internationally acclaimed medium, she leads by example, has high standards and inspires high standards in all of her intermediate and advanced students.

    Secondly, she is clear on the purpose of developing the gift of mediumship, that is to prove the continuation of the soul of our loved ones and to let people that have lost those dear, to know that they are both near and doing just fine. The responsibility of each student in her classes to develop the skills in order to accurately and succinctly deliver this message to those seeking comfort or closure is paramount.

    Thirdly, Val’s teaching style is learning by doing. Never before have I been so encouraged to dive in and do the work, to learn the work in a safe and supportive environment, where making mistakes is ok to do in the pursuit of pushing the boundaries of your talents. I have grown in ability so quickly compared to other circles I have sat in because of the example she sets, the standards she expects, the clarity of purpose for why we are developing the gift and the practical nature of the classes.

    I am truly blessed to have Val as a teacher, an inspiration and someone who has reshaped my whole value set around who a medium is and their contribution to the world.

  • Ronwyn

    Val is truly an amazing medium.  I took groups with Val for 6 months in 2015. Val taught me so much about working with spirit and as a teacher she is amazing.

    Not only is she accurate and unbelievable in detail with her readings and teachings Val is also a beautiful mentor who works closely with her students and teaches all aspects of mediumship. If you are looking to learn mediumship  or want a reading I would highly recommend you contact Val. You will love Val just as much as I do. Thank you Val for all you have done and shown me.

  • K

    I have been Val‘s student for about eighteen months during which time I have had the pleasure and benefit of her warmth, generosity, humour, patience, instruction and encouragement. Val is very particular about imbuing us with a high standard of skills and an ethical framework in which to work. I have watched her students develop excellent meduimship skills and have seen a number of them successfully demonstrate these skills in public.

    I wholeheartedly recommend Val to anyone interested in spiritual development.

Val Hood is an amazing Medium, the evidence she will give you from your passed loved ones, will fill your heart up with so much joy. Val is also a Spiritual Tutor, her workshops will take you to the next level with your mediumship. Before you know it, you will be Demonstrating at Spiritualist Churches under the watchful eye of Val Hood. Val is very supportive, and she will always encourage you and bring out the best in you with your mediumship! Val is Australia's top Medium and Tutor, and she is also internationally known for her work as a medium and tutor. I can only highly recommend Val

Maria Preiss

Val is a warm and encouraging teacher equal to the many tutors I have studied with at the Arthur Findlay College. If you are willing to learn and practice, you will walk away from Vals courses with more confidence in your own ability to be the best medium you can be.

Emily Hallinan

I have been fortunate enough to have done 2 workshops now with Val and seen her demonstrate her Mediumship on several occasions and she is absolutely phenomenal. If you are looking to take your Mediumship skills to the next level I would strongly recommend doing a workshop with Val. She is kind, caring , funny and so supportive. You will be given so many opportunities to practice, with Val consistently offering advice and encouragement. I consider having trained with Val an absolute privilege. She has helped take my own skills further than I thought I could go and given me the confidence to work publicly.

Lynette Lambden

I had an amazing experience with Val and the group. Val is a caring, nurturing, warm teacher, puts you at ease and 'navigates' you through. Val worked tirelessly for all involved, just amazing how she keeps going! I learned a lot and refreshed on a lot. I am amazed how many performed publicly after just 3 days!!!! Can't thank you enough Val. xxx

Lorraine Hughes

I have particated in Vals mentoring workshop and found it to be an amazing experience. Val teaches and guides from a place of authenticity, which is a rarity. From the start we were all put through our paces, stretching our mediumship to levels above and beyond what even I thought I could do. Her knowledge of mediumship is huge, as evidence from many years of training and teaching. I am fortunate to have found Val, and have attended her workshops as well as seen her demonstrate mediumship to large crowds of people on numerous occasions. I look forward to continuing my training with her as I have found the best teacher!

Michael Spiniello

with this being my second workshop with Val is testimony to her teaching, and teaching style. Val adapts the exercises to support the group's progressive development individually and as a group with feedback that is personal and relevant to each individual as well as for the group as a whole. She is vivacious and bright, supportive and approachable. Highly recommended if you are looking to grow in your evidential mediumship practice and abilities with someone who really cares about you.

Jenny Palmer

Val is an incredible medium and teacher. Val will push your mediumship to another level. I would not be where I am today if it wasn’t for Val pushing me and believing in me. Val will make you work hard but the rewards of your hard work will get you places. Val has knocked on the door of the spiritual churches and created space for us to work as fledgling students gaining experience to become advance level students/mediums. Val creates the opportunity to make things happen if you want. I’ve met some lovely people both in class and out in the field working. Thank you for all the opportunities you have created for me but most of all “Thank you” for believing in me. Simone 🌸

Simone Jones

I did a workshop with Val during the lock down and thoroughly enjoyed it. With Val's teaching style you are made to feel comfortable straight away. Straight to the point and with the best interests of her students at heart, and an added dash of humour .. what more could you ask for 🙂

Mira Korhonen-Low

Val has helped so many mediums and beginner mediums to keep up their skills by setting up zoom sessions that really do work and promote the principles of Spiritualism.

Suzie MacDougall

Val is a genuine medium who brings healing with her evidence of life continuing after death. She also has a wonderful intent of sharing this knowledge from the heart with her teachings. Highly recommend.

Rosie Barker

I’ve seen Val working on platform and also attended one of her weekend workshops which I absolutely loved. Val gave me a message while on platform that I found very accurate and comforting to be honest. The workshop was to develop my mediumship qualities which I enjoyed and felt Val pushed me in the direction I needed to help me grow. Val is very professional and for anyone considering seeing her I would definitely recommend her. Thank you Val for everything you do x

Joan Randall

The 8 weeks course with Val was incredible. She is caring, funny and straightforward. It's a once a week class. She is an amazing teacher who speaks with clarity, authenticity and professionalism. I was amazed that I could learn so much and become confident in the information I was receiving from the spirit world. It was a phenomenon experience I would continue taking courses this year to advance this skill and knowledge. Thank you for sharing your gifts with us !

Rimo

I have participated in Val’s online mediumship classes and found them to be great - teaching us to be evidential while showing us how we can improve and most of all in a supportive, positive way.

Kathy Collier

I've been learning from Val for over a year, and I love her straight-up style which strengthens the integrity of her work. She lovingly pushes you to increase and better your skills in Mediumship and provides so much support within class and wherever she can. Val is an experienced, accurate and awesome Medium and teacher. Thanks Val for all your support. xx

Renee Longworth

I have been working with Val for over two years now, I love the way she works, she shows so much dedication to bringing out the best in her students, she is straight to the point with throwing us in the deep end but with much love and support. Val's way of teaching is fabulous, she treats the students like family and every one is treated equally. After watching all the new students come into our group and connect so quickly it has made me realise that anyone can do mediumship, you just need the right teacher, Thank you Val. xx

Michelle Dicker

Testimonial
Val has been instrumental in progressing my mediumship to a higher level. Her teachings have challenged me in a good way. She has encouraged me to develop new ways of presenting my evidence and with gentle guidance she has facilitated the whole group to work as a team and support each other both in class and online outside of class.
Val has given us the confidence to step outside of our comfort zone and to Trust and believe what we are receiving.
The online classes have been wonderful in connecting us across the world and make new friends.
Thank you Val for giving me the opportunity to join your mentoring classes.
Ian Tamplin

I have been with Val for over 12 months now, I love the way she works, she shows so much dedication to bringing out the best in her students, she is straight to the point with throwing us in the deep end but with much love and support. Val's way of teaching is fabulous, she has had students that have never experienced working with mediumship before and in the first class they are picking up information. Fabulous.

Michelle Dicker

Straight to the point and with the best interests of her students at heart, and an added dash of humour .. what more could you ask for 🙂 I'm back doing another workshop at the moment, and this one looks like it's going to be as good as the last one 🙂

Alison Johnston

Val is funny, kind and provides great instruction as a teacher of Mediumship. She creates a very encouraging environment and uses AFC style of teaching which is methodical and effective.

  • Lisa Richards

    I had the privilege of attending one of Vals Demonstrantion of Mediumship in Adelaide S.A Val gave precise evidence of my father that passed earlier this year which came through and gave me the most heart felt message. The message that Val gave to me from my Dad touched my heart I was blown away, she gave me something that no one else would no tears rolling down my face and ,Val told me something interesting about the family business we will see how it plays out.

  • Robert London

    My wife and I, are Spiritualist Reverends with many decades of experience. We find it an honour, everytime Val Hood is on our church and centre platform. She is a devoted Spiritualist Medium. Her Spirit connection is pure and honest. She is one of the most dedicated soul to be in service to both Spirit and her audience. Her demonstration of Evidential Mediumship is pure truth, from the world of Spirit, to the psychical plane. There we are honoured to highly recommend Val Hood for private and public demonstrations.

  • Rev Sue Edmunds

    Val is an up front professional Medium, which means confidentiality is secure. She cares about spirit and it's quality presence. Whenever you've been around Val you leave feeling safe, valued, exuberant, confident and at peace. Love this lady whom lives, walks and talks love. Excellent Evidential Medium, that works face to face, online, group bookings, public shows, platforms at churches across Australia and the U.K. Val is a family woman with family values.

    I had the pleasure of hosting Val's first "VIP Afternoon" in the comfort of my home yesterday. We had 17 people and she gave loving and uplifting messages from our loved ones in the spriit world for almost two hours. It was a very special experience to share with family and friends. I hope this is the first of many she does for people, as there seems to be a growing desire for people to learn more about what lies beyond the veil. I would highly recommend the experience to anyone thinking of hosting their own intimate event with Val.

  • Tanja

    I was at the Spiritualist church in Farnham last Sunday with my mum and my partner Geoff. I have always believed in the afterlife and discussed it freely with my boys, Kieran had even attended with me a few times. I had stopped going – not needing the reassurance that it brings until both my boys died. Last Sunday my babies had been gone for 8 weeks only. The medium arrived, her name was Val Hood, she had never been to the Farnham church before. She said she had a message from a young man who had died tragically and recently and proceeded to describe my 9 year old – she then stopped and with tears in her eyes said that his sibling was with him and described my 11 year old. Now I know from visiting this website that losing 2 children is very rare – you wouldn’t make it up. She then went on to tell me about many things that I have and haven’t been doing that she would never have known. She also came up to me afterwards and apologised for not being able to produce their names – trust me, I didn’t mind, my partner, my mother and I were all in tears – Geoff has said that its the most amazing experience of his life. It has lifted my spirits so much, to lose both my boys has totally devastated my life but this one woman has given me so much hope.
