Keep Calm and Have a Reading

Often, we find ourselves confused by what is going on in our lives, and the choices we have … the feelings may be of ‘being stuck’ … even though we often have many options which can be illuminated.

I wish to help in viewing these possibilities through the various modalities I use: Tarot, Pendulum Dowsing, and Focusing.


Tarot is a metaphysical tool which casts light on our lives and enables us to find additional information we had not previously been aware of.


Dowsing is an ancient method of responding to questions in an intuitional way.


Focusing is a body-centered way of listening, offering a fresh way to explore, experience and understand oneself and clarify goals.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can my friend or partner join the reading?

I am focused solely on the person I am reading for, and the vibrations from the other party can sometimes  influence a reading.

Do you work in person only?

I can read for you in person, on the phone, or via Skype. It all works well.

Do I have to be a certain age to have a reading?

I only read for those 18 and up, in accordance with governing rules and ethics.

Marty K.

Avril has amazing — amazing!! — insights into your personality as well as your life path, and she helps you think through your options when you are trying to make difficult decisions. She is also one of the most compassionate persons I’ve ever met, so even when she has to deliver unwelcome news, she does so in a way that lets you know you can handle what the universe has in store for you. Finally, she has already been accurate not just with events, but with timing, which is also amazing. Highly recommended for anyone looking for guidance and clarity in his or her life.
