No matter what type of card reading you would like or maybe a mixture of two or three it is always good to come prepared with questions you would like me to ask the cards, so at some point sit quietly and decide what you would like to know.
Once you have booked i will call to ask your preferences as to where you want the card reading to take place and which packs you would prefer to use.
I will also ask clients to pick a tumble stone at the beginning of the reading that they feel drawn to if it they choose to meet in person. I find this usually calms people and allow them to be at ease with the reading.
