If it helps, I don’t follow or align with any specific philosophical concepts, magical societies, or models, but I’m willing to explore everything. While mindful not to replace dated religious theories with equally self-imposed and restrictive ideas that have more to say about cultural identity, the practitioner, and the mind in general, than anything truly revelatory and significant, so careful not to fall into that trap.
Neither I’m I subservient or follow other occultists’ paths, magical teachings, or new religions. Do I practice and explore their ideas and philosophies? Absolutely, but I recognise that such theories are only observational snapshots of a present mindset so state, that in time will become brutally exposed and superseded, as those with courage will unveil greater truths that will become progressively revealed.
In many ways, the core of my practice and work is to find one’s true identity, so higher authentic self. The quest for establishing autonomy, freedom, and self-expression. To liberate the will as to discover its higher nature and its context within the whole. The mindful habit so act of perpetually unveiling the concealed, as to become consciously present and aware of the stillness within the idea of movement, so life.
No, my spiritual path is a journey that is continually evolving and open to change. A perpetual cycle of distilling and refining in the pursuit to find deeper meaning and truth. This doesn’t mean that I’m closed-minded, disrespectful or disinterested in different faiths or religions. Quite the contrary, I’m always open to differing ideas, philosophies and practices.
The Sun is my Father,
The Moon is my Mother,
Fire is my Spirit,
Water my Blood,
Air is my Breath,
Earth my Body.

I’ve always had a deep interest in the mind, and occult and studied magical models and principles for decades while developing many of my own. Magical thinking and philosophies are at the heart of all my work. Following tradition, most of my practice is intentionally covert, but visible to those with gnosis.

To be honest, I’ve never really felt comfortable putting my work in the public domain. There are days when I feel fine about its publication; others I’m pleased I culled the beast. Particularly given the nature of the subject and its potential misapplication. Not that I’m unhappy about its contents, quite the contrary. I’m just not sure in its present incarnation that it delivers the insights as clearly and effectively as it could.
I recognise this causes frustration, and perplexes many, but until I’ve resolved these issues and contradictions, I’ll keep things as they are.
In due time, I will upload abridged sections of my book to this website under the magick section, (click here to view) While all sensitive information and techniques will be intentionally absent. All the same, I feel these snippets will offer a taster of my occult insight and philosophy. Particularly if you’re new to magick, or unsure what the mystical arts are about or have to say.
YES, I recognise that it may not be possible for all visitors to purchase one of my one-to-one readings/services. With this in mind, you may find my Instagram page interesting, as I randomly offer “FREE” Tarot Card Readings for subscribers. – (Please click here to view and follow my Instagram page)
Yes! Providing you have a stable broadband connection and a suitable device with an inbuilt microphone and webcam. Then you can order both my ‘Spiritual Readings’ and ‘Counselling Sessions’ over the internet. Simple, easy and convenient!
While prediction will typically be part of my tarot card readings, any insight gained will always be unsolicited, spontaneous and naturally attained.
Questions like, “will I pass my exam?” are not the type of question that I feel is empowering, as the more sensible, ethical way to find that answer is to wait and see. However, if the exam is yet to take place, then this is quite a different proposition. Providing opportunities to help the individual to move towards the desired outcome. Another way to think about prediction is, “The best way to predict the future is to create it!”
I take my reading ethics and responsibilities extremely seriously and become quite uncomfortable with statements like, “my predictions are one hundred per cent correct.” Not only is this type of statement irresponsible, but misleading. Prediction by tarot is not a science, but like all forms of prophecy is more intuitive in practice.
Absolutely, if you choose to visit me in person, you are welcome to bring someone along with you. However, due to the sensitive nature of readings or spiritual counselling. You should be aware that potentially confidential details about you and your situation may be discussed within your consultation.
If you’re happy with this, then this is fine with me. Any accompanying person must be over 18 and remain passive throughout the meeting. If you choose to bring along an accompanying adult, please remember to select this option in the booking process.
I’m based in the North West of England between the cities of Manchester and Liverpool, just off the M6 J23, approximately a ten-minute drive. For security reasons, I will provide the exact address upon the completion of your order.
Spiritual readings: If you’re looking for intuitively based guidance, then I’m confident you’ll love this form of support. There is something quite extraordinary about tarot, and when we open our mind to the insight and knowledge it offers. Then the experience can be truly magical, empowering and transformative.
Spiritual counselling: Spiritual counselling will focus around casual discussion, exploration and solution-based guidance that will be spiritual in nature. A service that typically, but not necessarily, will be spread over several sessions, to find a more practical, successful and positive way forward. If you’re comfortable with openly discussing your problems and exploring spiritually-based solutions, tools and practices, then take a look at my spiritual counselling page.
