    What does the future hold for you? Visit Jenny Florence at the ball to find out.

    Along with reading the Tarot I had also trained as a Reiki Master and while working with both these amazing tools I discovered I was also developing Clairvoyant & Mediumship skills too!  It has been one heck of a journey & I’ve enjoyed every moment and it’s been wonderful receiving such positive feedback from all the lovely clients I have met over the last three years and equally rewarding when they come back for second & third readings!  It’s not something I set out to do, but it seems it was just meant to be & I wouldn’t have missed it for the world.
