Book a Private Reading with Val

  • Have you just lost a loved one and have all sorts of questions to validate that they are still with you?
  • Are you looking for signs that they are still there, that they are happy?
  • Looking for closure with a loved one that has passed?
  • Are you looking for answers regarding work, a difficult relationship, or other issues in your life that need clarity?

Here's how a reading can help...

Val will connect with the world of Spirit. Connections with Spirit are very personal and emotional times and above all, Val will deliver messages to you with compassion and respect.

Within this reading, Val may also be given information that she feels she has to share with you about your life.

Readings can be made in person in Sydney or over Skype or Zoom.


Last Sunday my babies had been gone for 8 weeks only. The medium 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 came up afterwards apologising for not producing their names - trust me, I didn't mind, we were all in tears - the most amazing experience. 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

  • Val is your go to Medium and Workshop Facilitator. She's just the BEST!

  • I have been searching for a regular workshop to attend for over 3 years. 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.
  • Never met anyone else like her. Her skill, gift, whatever one wants to call it is amazing and leaves me in awe. Not only that, but she is also a wonderful friend. Very lucky to have her in my life now, that’s for sure! If you need to have a reading done to spend time with your loved ones who have passed whether it be for guidance, reassurance, or just because, Val is who to turn to. Trust me.

  • Awesome night of fun, laughter and lots of evidence from a very passionate medium. Thanks so much for sharing your insight and integrity working with spirit RSB
  • 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.
  • I've known Val for many years and she is the real deal. she is just as authentic and passionate about her work as she is about life. You will not be disappointed.

Val's brilliant display of mediumship was uplifting with so much laughter. Great work as always beautiful Sue Williams ... you certainly excel at bringing us the best... thank you DM
  • Morning Val! Thank you so much for the learning and fun on so many levels. The tuition, practice, feedback and stretch is exactly what I was looking for but most of all it was your example of presence and connection to spirit that stood out the most. This created a learning environment that held us in love, trust and truth. The three elements that an effective psychic medium must live, breathe and be. I feel so blessed the my guides have lead me to this point (and for their continued support) and even more blessed that they’ve lead me to the teacher that can help me to fully own who I am.   Will see you at either December or February workshop.  Blessings,
  • Great night full of fun laughter and amazing evidence. Certainly great to see your wondetful way of presenting the gift of mediumship with truth and love. Thanks to both you and Sue Williams for always raising the standards and showing how Mediumship should be done. KG
