Val Hood, an international psychic medium, will be coming to Canowindra this weekend. Specialising in helping people deal with the pain and grief of the loss of a loved one, Val moved to Australia 6 years ago and now tours around the world with her partner Brett. The duo are both qualified ministers and also provide readings, psychic dinners and teach mediumship. “Canowindra is my first point of call as I have family here” said Val, who grew up in Cardiff; “My grandmother was a tea leaf reader so I’ve grown up around this sort of thing.”
Val says she was a reluctant medium who found her calling after being thrown in the deep end by a teacher, “I didn’t think this is what I’d be doing but I joined the spiritual church 25 years ago and never looked back. I was at a service once and my teacher never turned up so I had to conduct the opening and closing prayers along with the mediumship. It turned out her car had broken down but everything happens for a reason.” Val will have a popup shop at 49 Gaskill Street from 10am to 5pm on Saturday and Sunday.
