The Post – 26 Sep 2007: Patsy Payne
My visit to Val Hood – an increasingly well-known clairvoyant, followed her latest success with readings and workshops at quest in Ewell Village where business is also booming.
The day I called, the personable medium, was getting reading for another public performance – this time at the harlequin Theatre in Redhill.
I went with a completely open mind – and for the skeptics (and I am one) I feel compelled to say a number of things came to light in my half-hour reading.
I have no doubt, this lady is psychic – how otherwise did she know that I had thousands of books unread and little piles of them on the floor littered around my house?
And there again how did she know I had just had new tyres put on my care when I parked a way from where we met?
She mentioned a friend by name ‘on the other side’ who apparently had been very fond of me and who at first I couldn’t place.
Later in the session she mentioned a plane crash and then I remembered this person (whom I’d adored as a child) who had died so tragically with his son – both bearing the same Christian name.
I felt a little spooky at this stage – but perfectly safe.
Val is a positive person and not a sensation seeker. She takes her gift which she has known since aged 8, responsibly and also teaches the need for sensitivity to those she trains.
As well as appearing on television and in many theatres and halls, she also gives tuition and private readings and can be contacted via Quest at 83 High Street, Ewell Village, telephone 0208 393 4707.
