Who is it for?

This course is designed for those who have completed the Introductory Tarot Course and who want to delve deeper into the tarot. It is suited to those who are in professional practice and this course improves your working knowledge of the tarot in a fun atmosphere. As our teaching methods are quite specific, it is not possible to attend this course until you have completed the introductory tarot course. It also offers telephone reading techniques and a demonstration telephone tarot reading using a speaker-phone. In this way students can hear both sides of the conversation as they watch the reading unfold.

As this is an advanced course, more emphasis is given to layouts, dealing with clients when reading for them and tips for setting up a successful practice in a changing industry. Also included are:

  • a simple 11 step reading process.
  • how to make sense of Yes / No questions.
  • learning to know when the Court cards depict people, aspects of the client or situations.
  • a chance to design your own layout, such as a causes/consequences layout or a career/relationship spread.

  • the seven main chakras of the body and a chakra layout to read them through the tarot.
  • how to encourage the client to feel at ease during a reading.
  • your rights and responsibilities as a reader.
  • a range of professional opportunities for readers, including markets, telephone services, healing centres and private practice.

Course notes

Course notes are included in the form of a workbook, including an Advanced tarot Log. This allows you to focus on the demonstrations, exercises and the reading process instead of taking notes continuously.

Certification

A certificate is granted to those who successfully complete written and practical assessment. The practical component includes giving a reading to a stranger. These readings are recorded and the client is given the recording, just as you would in private practice. Assessments are optional. You'll need to complete and log 50 readings before sitting for exams. Assessments are by appointment only and can be completed at your leisure. The fee to sit an assessment is $95.

Psychic Development Course

This practical, hands-on course offers a solid framework for your psychic development, in a positive and supportive environment. It is a powerful beginners course, and covers all the basics in a step by step manner. Previous knowledge is not required. This course offers you:

  • improved intuitive skills developed through games, exercises and hands on experience, setting you up for your own ongoing intuitive development.
  • psychic protection techniques for improving your protection as your intuition develops.
  • simple guided meditations which you can practice at home.
  • aura vision techniques which are simple and effective.
  • psychic etiquette / boundaries, to help you to avoid trespassing into the auric energy fields of others, which may open you to receiving the same from them.

This course is based on Paul's extensive experience as a clairvoyant, and it is approached in a fun, yet practical manner. Day one reveals the importance of psychic protection. Day two involves exploring your natural intuition through games and a variety of exercises, while day three examines psychic cleansing and the traditional tools used by professional psychics for prediction.  PDF course brochure

It includes games, exercises and demonstrations, along with regular practice sessions to enable you to build your confidence in the techniques offered. This enables you to discover your natural strengths and more fully explore those areas which interest you.

Guided meditations are included, along with psychic development techniques such as:

  • the benefits of keeping a dream journal
  • scanning yourself for auric weakness
  • how curiosity forms psychic cords to others
  • how to read the energy of objects and rooms
  • how to distinguish inner voices guiding you from your own thoughts or imagination
  • the seven main chakras of the body and their associated colours
  • noticing which chakras you favour
  • simple telepathy exercises
  • how to cleanse and protect your home or office
  • the importance of astral travel during sleep
  • a brief look at psychic prediction methods including palmistry, tarot, astrology, psychometry and meditation.

Psychic development is about nourishing the psyche or soul for your journey through life and beyond. It is much more than predicting future events. It's about making sense of what current circumstances can teach you and recognising what steps you need to take to fulfil your deeper purpose in life. While goals are what we want from life, purpose is found in what we give back. When you identify what you can uniquely give back to others, you'll have found your purpose. Psychic development is about nourishing your soul to ensure you have the strength to fulfil your purpose.

Thank you for the enjoyable class you held for us over the last 3 weeks. It was certainly what I needed to do and I am very glad to have picked you as a teacher. Many thanks for all the opportunities given in class.  Best regards

Carla J. (Sydney)

Thank you very much for both the excellent structure and very lively, captivating delivery of the course. These past 3 Sundays have been the best time I can remember in ages and will be for some time to come. I feel better equipped with the meditative tools to deal with them better and over time, learn to avoid the mistakes I have made with higher guidance.

Feedback on this course:

Paul's course is AMAZING for palmistry students of all levels, with primary focus on the beginner. He is a kind and natural teacher explaining complex concepts in a simple and engaging manner utilising humour and stories which enhance memory retention. As the course is quite intimate it is possible to ask lots of questions and a personal highlight is observing examples on the hands of the other students present and the practice sessions which allow for application of our new knowledge. To top it all off the course run in Epping is in a beautiful and calm area right next to Edna Hunt Sanctuary, a 17 acre park.    Stephanie N. - (Sydney)
Thank you for an interesting, info-packed course. I enjoyed it thoroughly. I will definitely need to read your book over and let all the facts sink in. It's amazing to see events in my life all mapped out in my hands.    T.V. - (Sydney)

The Introductory tarot-correspondence course is a must for anyone who wants a clear understanding of the tarot.  The supporting book contains wonderful insights into the symbolism and various interpretations of the cards as well as a number of tarot spreads. Using the Tarot is really helping me in seeing where I need to go. It also contains great tips for psychic cleansing and how to use the tarot wisely.   I have found the course invaluable.  The cards have been an great tool for my personal growth and expansion.  Thank you Paul.

I have restarted my Tarot Correspondence Course after a break and I am not feeling overwhelmed any more. I have worked out a good way for me to really get the information into my head, using your well thought out simple methods.
I am planning now to have finished the course and also to have my 50 readings under my belt by the end of 2015. I would like to get my certificate so that I can start a business in 2016.

Previous psychic development students have been amazed at how accurate they have been using the simple, practical techniques offered by this course.

Psychic development is about nourishing the psyche or soul for your journey through life and beyond. It is much more than predicting future events. It’s about making sense of what current circumstances can teach you and recognising what steps you need to take to fulfil your deeper purpose in life.

Feedback on this course:

Thanks for the fun-filled Psychic Development course which I attended here in Melbourne over the weekend.  I personally appreciated your wonderful knowledge, accessible personality as a teacher and the lengths you went to clarify any questions or confusion I, or any of the other participants, may have had through the course.   I would definitely be interested in future courses you may hold in Melbourne.  GM (March 2014)

I LOVED the course last weekend. You have given me some new tools to use. Thank you.  Sandy - Melbourne Vic.  (March 2014)

Thank you so much for an amazing weekend! It was great being there- it's actually amazing how much energy I have when I'm nourishing myself spiritually- I think meditation and cord cutting makes me feel more energised than sleep sometimes! I've noticed a big difference this week after doing your course, I'm a lot more focused and my life feels simplified and enhanced. In my tarot class last night I made myself aware of my surroundings when I sat down, and for the rest of the class I found it a lot easier to tap in to my intuition. I also loved the way you described the kings and queens of the four suits (of the tarot) - It has really stuck in my head, I never had a clear picture of each suits personality before. Thank you so much, it was such an amazing weekend!  Mardi W. (Melbourne) - March 2015
