It isn't unusual to want to seek answers from others when life seems uncertain or when you are facing a difficult decision. Turning to a trusted parent, teacher, friend, or personal adviser is not always possible. However, there are professional psychics (intuitive counselors) who are very adept at helping their clients sort through their confusions.
Before you pick up the phone and dial 1-900-XXX-XXXX for a phone reading, prepay for a Skype session, or book an in-person consultation, there are a few things to keep in mind:
- Know beforehand what to expect during your reading.
- Be selective. Choose from among psychics with special talents the one that best meets your needs.
- Learn how to phrase your questions carefully.
- Avoid charletons who only want to separate you from your money.
Do Your HomeworkNot all psychics are alike. How they run their businesses will vary. It is up to you as the consumer to find out what to expect before booking a session. If a psychic has a Web site, take some time to explore it. Review the psychic's resume. Also look for a description or informational text explaining what a session costs, what you get in exchange for your payment, etc. If not, look for an email or contact form for inquiries. Reading client referrals or testimonials are also helpful. Just know that you are not going to see any negative reviews posted on the psychic's Web site... Google or Bing the psychic's name to see if there are any negative, neutral, or rave reviews written elsewhere.
Psychics, Intuitives, Empaths, Spirit CommunicatorsTalents and interests vary among intuitive consultants. Everyone has psychic abilities but individuals who use these talents in a professional capacity they will often choose not to call themselves psychics. Some do, but others use other terms or labels that better describe the work they do such as empathic healers, intuitive life coaches, animal communicators, clairvoyants, spirit channelers, etc.
