Readings can help you understand your strengths and reveal any blind spots you might have; they can provide you with clarity, happiness and freedom from negativity; they can show you new positive directions and guide you on how to achieve your highest potential.

Mike Kay offers readings through the use of Tarot, numerology and cleromancy. Readings may be one-on-one or in groups, and may be conducted via email, telephone, Skype or in person.

If you seek a deeper insight of yourself, of a situation or just want an upbeat character reading with friends, feel free to get in contact.
