What are Spirit Portraits?
I am a Spiritualist Medium at a Diploma level in demonstrating and teaching (DSNUt). I have worked at the Arthur Findlay College both as Assistant Tutor and as a (Spare) Full Tutor on two separate weeks teaching my own groups teaching Mediumship. I have given tutorials and talks and held workshops to the entire college (over 50 students at one time) and some having been Japanese students. I have demonstrated once at open week in the College, and also during their evening of divine services, as well as other great local churches also.
In 2014, I won the SNU Gordon Higginson Scholarship Award! I also love my work as a Spirit Portraiture artist and Fine Art artist and draw and oil paint portraits of people and animals. I used to play the piano well too!
DSNUt SPIRITUALIST MEDIUM
I also hold a TAP.dip (in Training the Trainer qualifications: Facilitation, Design and Delivery, Effective Presentations, Coaching and more. I was a professional IT Trainer for nearly 19 years and I have held the DTLLS for over 10 years (equivalent to a Level 5 Diploma in Education and Training).
I currently work as a Design and Delivery eLearning Instructional Specialist, creating e-learning training course videos for the business.
As a Medium, simply allow the voice of Spirit, the loved one wishing to be heard and relay their information to the sitter.
I have been advertised in Spirit and Destiny magazine a few times and in one article called me the Voice Vibration reader due to my ability to give readings just listening to the vibration of your voice. I've been told many a time about the accuracy of my readings, however, I only tell what I see, feel and sense when doing Psychic readings.
My hobbies are painting professional Portrait's using Oils, and Pet Portrait Digital Art commissions. I paint Auragraphs and design and make animation videos to promote small one-person businesses selling products or services and of course conducting 1:1 coaching sessions.
I am simply a Life seeker for the truth, and offer my knowledge to be of service to spirit, whether in the incarnate or discarnate form. I therefore provide you with an array of my services to support your jump to your next stepping stone. I have spent many years developing my ability, many lonesome paths I have walked with a tear or two, and when faced with hurdles from my own fears, lack of confidence to overhearing unkind spoken words by people I once looked up to has given me the insight I have.
I believe most of us want these 8 things:
To be happy
To be loved
To be healthy
To have meaningful friendships
To be productive
To feel successful
To be of service
However all the above are subjective to each individual. At the Portrait of Spirit we offer you the opportunity to explore new avenues to unfold your Spiritual paths.
Now this may ruffle a few feathers. I'm unsure why it appears that in a movement that is meant to be Spiritual, for some, it seems the only way to feel good about the status or power one has over another is to practice excessive judgemental negative attitudes towards students learning to become of service for the world of Spirit.
I believe starting from the Teachers perspective we must ensure we avoid speaking negatively about others in any case, especially that which hinders the advancement or progression of someone trying to make their way up their ladder.
BIT OF A SPIRITUAL RANT - ANY WHY I MAY NOT ALWAYS BE AT THE BECK AND CALL OF STUDENTS EVERY SINGLE DAY
In some establishments open to Spiritualism, if your face fits and you can be moulded by those with power, you might be accepted, whilst within other establishments their resistance to change and equality can lower the balance of inclusivity and fairness. It is within this space, I believe one of my missions is to ensure in all my workshops and private circles everyone is treated equally and feels safe in the environment that is created.
I do also believe 'new students' during their earlier development can have a higher ego, or their insecurity issues play a lot in their sensitivity when their neediness attaches to the tutor or others in the classroom. Many a time students outside of their classes contact me which I'm happy to answer a few questions here and there however, when you have 14 students in one day contacting you to read their writing or to have a little chat etc, thinking they are the only one contacting you, sometimes I have to say No, or that I'm I'm extremely busy and in turn, unintentionally cause disappointment and said student feeling offended as I've not said an immediate yes. So far, I've been lucky to have the most amazing students and to ensure availability I offer them the 'Let's Talk' service so that the information / answers they are seeking mid-week, can be booked in for a paid session therefore respecting my time, but also, still gaining the same answer they may have wanted for free.
Having said that I do find students who love the tutors' style of teaching do really appreciate and value the time offered and I too in turn still answer questions as and where I can. If you do become a new student of mine, please note, I still have a 9 - 5, I run many workshops outside of my 9 -5, I have private clients mid-week, I am also on two important committees that require study and written work to be produced, I demonstrate as often as I can and I also run speaking groups as well as when the college is open and am invited teach on weeks there.
Any 'free time' is with my family, or painting, or just relaxing with Netflix which isn't often, so if you value me, please book a 'let's talk' session at any time, or any questions feel free to stay behind after class and I'll be happy to answer. If you are indeed of a confident ear, there is an issues email me and I will do my best to help you immediately. However, unless emergency can't access a class, I prefer if you contact me through email, not via FB messenger as this is my private space.
I love students, however during their workshop, their course is the time for Q/A, and of course by email mid-week, however, sometimes when a favour is asked, I will have to say No AND said studentshave a lot of work to do upon themselves first as there is a big tendency to deflect inner pain outwardly to others. This is why I also ask students to continually 'work upon their inner selves' to ensure what inside if negative doesn't affect others and what's inside is kind, balanced and love, to ensure this is show outwardly to guide others toward the light of good and not the shadow of bad.
I guess this method has helped me over my years of training to instil the 'brotherhood of man' in the classroom, as outside in the bigger, wider world, we are all professionals in our own right, and in our own work.
TIME IS MONEY AND MONEY IS TIME
I believe in providing value for money and value of time. It goes both ways and this allows me to give my very best. I hope this provides you with a snippet into my personality and if considering joining my next workshop, I look forward to seeing you. In the meantime, take a look at the student's feedback.
I will you well.
I wish you peace.
I hope to see you in the next event.

MY SPARE TIME
Amongst that in my spare time I have taught Spiritual development for my own groups in Mediumship and Spirit Art for over 9 years and each year personally strive to do continue developmental learning for myself to continue pushing the boundaries of my comfort zones towards learning to be the best facilitator and voice for Spirit I can be and for those earthlings, wishing to improve their skills.
When it comes to demonstrating, do I get nervous...?? Absolutely! However, it's how we harness those nerves to power the event we are about to take on that matters!
I really love what I do. All classes are designed and lead by me and if you read the students feedback you'll gain a better idea what others really think!. I look forward to meeting with you soon x
