Standard In-Depth 1-hour reading

‘Spread’ is the word used for the shape the cards make when placed in a particular layout. The shape of a Spread might be useful for exploring a particular theme – for example, an arrow if we’re looking for clarity and motivation; or a bridge if we’re exploring the idea of passage. I have several Spreads that I like to use for various purposes, many that I’ve designed myself, which I’ll choose from to suit your reading. Other times, the shape of the reading suggests itself – and I'll let a pattern, or story, take shape as the cards come out in conversation.

In-depth Readings

I like to give a full hour to explore a reading. This gives us plenty of time and scope to get into things. Don't worry if you aren't feeling chatty! There's always plenty to see, and I'm there to guide that process. I also allow a little time either side of the reading for settling in and closing – therefore, a ‘1-hour’ session may actually last 1 hour and 15-20 minutes. Timings will be understood when we make your booking, so your mind is free from any distractions about transport or other commitments.

'STANDARD' versus 'NOVELTY' Readings:

You'll notice that I've also designed a range of other 'novelty' Spreads, using particular decks (please explore ALICE IN WONDERLAND, TWIN PEAKS TAROT and BIG TOP TAROT in the drop-down menu). These are great for a fun and unusual experience, or to give as a gift - absolutely just as meaningful as having a Standard reading, but with an added creative twist.

For STANDARD IN-DEPTH readings I use my Rider-Waite-Smith deck, and it's best to go for this if you have something in particular you want to address in close detail, without any added frills...
