UK RENOWNED PSYCHIC JEANNETTE DUPONT
1. WHERE DO YOU LIVE AND WHAT ARE SOME BRIEF COMMENTS ABOUT YOUR FAMILY?
I was born in Mansfield Nottinghamshire, second of 3 children to parents Tony and Pat Simpson (aka Patricia Farnsworth-Simpson – Award winning Poet and Publisher), I spent most of my early years living there and along the Notts/Derby border, until I moved to Scarborough early 1995, where I still live. I have 3 sons Mike (19) Jack (16) and Joe (14) and I am also step mum to my husband Julian’s 5 children. My parents and elder brother Robert live in different areas of France whilst my younger sister Deborah (Horary Astrologer, Author and Lecturer) lives with her family in Mansfield.
2. WHEN DID YOU FIRST NOTICE AN INTEREST AND ABILITY IN FORESEEING EVENTS AND THINGS THAT PERTAIN TO THE FUTURE?
When I was 13, I changed… I had a dream on my 13th birthday which is as vivid to me today at 51, as it was then. During this particular dream (like the sequence in the film Wizard of Oz) an event happened I felt like I had been struck by lightning and my dream visualization turned from black and white into full techni-colour, someone spoke to me and said I had a power – a gift – that I must learn to use and use well.
I have dreamed in colour ever since.
I get a lot of personal communication and guidance whilst in dream state which helps my personal life decision making and I often look forward to going to bed to return to my ‘sleep state’ adventures.
I have always been profoundly drawn to Tarot cards and had many personal readings when younger – Although I enjoyed the excitement of having a reading, I lived my life unaltered by what was told but I often found it uncanny that predicted events would come along as suggested during the various readings.
I also met some interesting and famous psychics along the way, all of whom without exception told me that I too possessed ‘the gift’ and should be working for spirit.
However it wasn’t until I was in my mid twenties when a beloved pet died that I physically started seeing spirit with my eyes, prior to that time I just ‘knew’ things.
Once I started to see and hear spirit properly my life changed completely and I at last felt whole and understood my place in the world.
3. AT WHAT AGE DID YOU START GIVING READINGS PROFESSIONALLY?
I worked with tarot cards for many years giving readings to friends and family members but as I had a good job working for the NCB and later my own successful businesses, I didn’t make any monetary charge.
It was hard to initially charge people for something I consider to be a spiritual gift but as time moved on, I realized I had to decide either to concentrate on my psychic pathway or continue with my day job, I did not have enough time or energy to do both at the rate I was doing…. and If I was to work as a full time psychic then I still had to pay my bills and so would have to make a charge for my services.
This cause me much confusion however during my meditations my spirit guides explained that they had NO interest at all in material matters, they didn’t care if I had to charge a fee in order to maintain a normal life style, they only cared that I work with love in my heart and with truth on my lips. This helped me to focus and make an important choice.
I gave my first professional reading to a complete stranger at the age of 27 when I began working at Psychic Fayres - working for spirit was so natural I decided to devote myself full time to my psychic pathway.
4. WHAT WERE SOME OF THE EARLY INSTANCES OF THIS ABILITY TO FORECAST THE FUTURE THAT HAVE REMAINED CLEAR IN YOUR MIND AS MAJOR EVENTS?
There are many. I had a lady client come to see me as her mother had died unexpectedly without leaving a will. This lady had lived and cared for her mum (her best friend) for years and not only had to cope with her grief but also a financially insecure future. Immediately the mum came through and told her daughter how much she loved her and that she was going to take care of her and make sure she got the money she should have had – had she been able to have made a will. She said that she should go to the bingo and she would look after her.
I do not particularly like to give this kind of information out as I do not want to promote any form of gambling as a way of gaining money – however the mother was most insistent that I gave the message to her daughter.
The daughter was a little bewildered as she had NEVER been to bingo and didn’t know anyone who did. I just told her that if she got an invitation to go then perhaps she should accept.
The daughter later related the following to me – Two weeks after my sitting a friend got in touch saying she was bored and wanted to get out of the house and asked me to go to the bingo – I was going to say no but remembered what you had said and decided to go along – I won - the first game I played I won £14,000 and I knew it was from my mum I felt her presence, I knew she was smiling and at peace because I had been looked after.
Another young lady came to see me - I told her she was pregnant or would conceive a child that week, that her husband would be getting a new job and that she would be moving to Bristol in the very near future – the lady was very upset with my reading as she had just lost a baby when 6 months pregnant not only could she NOT be pregnant but the fear of going through the lost of another unborn child was horrific, her husband had a good job at the council which he did not intend to leave and she had no connection at all with Bristol. I was concerned that she was unhappy with the information I had told her but my guides were adamant and told me to tell her again she was pregnant and not to worry.
Four weeks later something made me get up early and go to the local supermarket before breakfast (unheard of) as I approached the door this same young lady was coming out, she looked straight at me and said “OMG Jeannette I was just coming to see you – I have just done a pregnancy test which is positive and means I must have been pregnant the day I came to see you– I haven’t even told my husband yet …”
I was so pleased for her and her face was beaming I just told her not to worry that this baby would be born safely.
A few months later I received a letter from Bristol – The lady was writing to tell me that once again “my predictions had come true… “Her husband had been unexpectedly made redundant when she was about 3 months pregnant but had been offered a fantastic job in Bristol and although she had no family or friends there remembering my reading she had agreed to move and that they were now very happily living there with her lovely daughter who had been safely delivered without a problem on the 18th December “ (My Mums birthday).
5. IN YOUR READINGS, DO YOU READ PALMS, USE TAROT CARDS, TEA LEAVES OR SOMETHING ELSE?
My professional private readings are very in-depth and look at all areas of a client’s life including their past, present and future this can often take up to 45 minutes.
As a Medium I bring communication from spiritual beings proving the continuation of life after physical death, this I do mostly using clairaudience and clairvoyance (I hear and see spirit).
As a psychic artist I am able to capture images of loved ones and spirit guides onto paper. I also see Auras and use this ability to interpret a client’s health, on spiritual, emotional, mental and psychical levels for people (and when requested for animals)
I mainly use the Tarot cards as a predictive tool during my sittings. – I have a clairvoyant guide called Rosa who provides uncannily accurate information but I am happy to work with most divination tools including scrying, colour psychometry crystal ball etc.
I do not read palms- I have never really been interested in developing this skill.
6. WHAT INFLUENCED YOU TO USE THE MEDIUM (S) THAT YOU HAVE CHOSEN?
As I have already said, I have always been fascinated by Tarot cards mainly because they provide such rich details when discussing life events. I feel comfortable interpreting them although I do not use the traditional meanings. Every single reading is individual I work with the Tarot as if I am seeing them for the first time every time and my inspiration is different on every occasion. I work a lot with colours and colour analysis which helps my understanding of a client’s health and emotions. The colours provided in the pictures on the Tarot lend themselves ideally to my specializations.
7. DID YOU STUDY UNDER A TUTOR?
I had moved back to Mansfield 3 weeks previously when my dog was killed in a car accident – I saw my LUCY hours later and this sent me to seek help from a spiritualist church. A few days later a lady stopped me in the street, told me she was a medium from London who had been asked by spirit to move ‘up north’ to Mansfield to help train a future world famous medium and that she had done what her spirit friends had asked of her – She said she had seen me in the church and knew immediately that the medium she was to train was me! She asked me to join her development circle. I didn’t know what a development circle was nor did I feel there was anything special about me but I had been so taken aback by my communication with Lucy and this woman was so inspiring I just said ‘yes’. Within a year I was working from the public platform giving messages to other seekers.
The lady was called Jean Milledge (aka Jean Marie-Vine) – she was my first and only tutor, we became firm friends and inseparable (especially as it transpired we lived 2 doors apart from each other). We spent every day 7 days a week practicing the tarot, meditating and developing my abilities until my training was complete and then life took us in different directions - Jean found love, married and moved to Retford and I eventually left Mansfield and moved to Scarborough.
I also briefly studied general & horary astrology for a couple of years under the guidance of my sister Deborah, but though I found the subject fascinating and am convinced that everything is connected to and influenced by all of nature including the astral heavens – I found it to be a bit too technical, with the rules of interpretation too ridged for my tastes. When I write my Astro- Tarot predictions for the papers and my radio broadcasts I tend to concentrate on the quick movement of the moon and any special astral events that may be happening, in combination with my beloved Tarot to make my own predictions.
8. DID YOU FIND BOOKS AND OTHER PRINTED MATTER THAT HELPED YOU DEVELOP YOUR SKILL?
Not really… of course I am open minded and have read a few books on various subjects appertaining to the psychic arts and spiritual communication; but I believe the best way to learn and enhance psychic ability, is through guided development circles, meditation and self-discovery. The books I have enjoyed include the works of Edgar Cayce, Wisdom of Ramadahn by Ursula Roberts, Zodiac and the White Eagle Books.
9. WHAT IS THE AGE OF THE YOUNGEST PERSON FOR WHOM YOU DID A READING? DO YOU ROUTINELY GIVE READINGS FOR CHILDREN ?
I am happy to work with children as well as adults, because I only work on a positive and uplifting vibration. The advice given from spirit is aimed at encouraging confidence and fulfilling your life potential and although life is not always a fairy tale by using a friendly manner, I believe I am able to help youngsters out of sometimes gloomy situations back onto a happier pathway with a brighter outlook.
The youngest child I have worked with professionally was 8 years old but this was at the parent’s request, with their complete consent and with them present in the room.
I have done many readings for children around the age of 13 and prefer that as long as everyone is comfortable that I read for them privately. I am happy to see young people from the age of 16 without parental consent.
However ALL my readings are recorded and a copy is given to the client/parent so that anyone who needs to is able listen to the content and be re-assured.
10. WHERE DO YOU CONDUCT YOUR READINGS? HOME? OFFICE? HOMES OF CLIENTS?
I do most of my private readings from my home in Scarborough where I have built up some wonderful and powerful communication vibrations. People willingly travel here, often over great distances to have a face to face sitting, but I understand that this is not always possible for everyone to do this and so I also provide readings (by appointment) over the telephone. I regularly read for people from all over the world including Australia Europe, USA, Canada, New Zealand, Africa and Middle East.
My stage appearances can take place anywhere and although I am presently concentrating on my local region of Yorkshire I have worked most of the UK, given demonstrations, private readings, lectures and taught budding mediums in Switzerland, Northern & Southern France and Spain and am looking to expand into more theatre work during the summer of next year.
My forthcoming events are displayed on my website www.jeannettedupont.com
11. TYPICALLY, WHAT IS THE REACTION OF CLIENTS AFTER RECEIIVING THEIR READING?
I have hundreds of testimonials from very satisfied customers my most recent are displayed on Free Index directory where I am rated No 1 out of 384 UK Psychics http://www.freeindex.co.uk/profile%28jeannette-dupont%29_286434.htm
12. WHAT IS ONE OR MORE REALLY SIGNIFICANT READING RESULTS YOU CAN TELL US WITHOUT IDENTIFYING THE CLIENT?
A regular client came to see me – he often toured Italy giving classical concerts during the spring/summer and late autumn periods. On one October visit, having recently returned from an overseas recital and amongst a lot of other information, I told him that he would not be going abroad the following year, which dismayed him as he was unable to understand why he would not be fulfilling his obligations and possibly damaging his financial position. I explained that he would be receiving some money but it would have a sad connection to it possibly from an inheritance. Not content with this generalization he pushed me for greater detail- I told him it would be coming from a female family member – he pushed for more asking if it was one of his sisters - although uncomfortable I confirmed it was and when he asked which one I told him that of the two sisters he had only one liked him and would consider leaving him anything in her will and this was the one. Again perturbed he said well my younger sister is only 52 and in fine health and she is the one I get along with the other sister does not give me the time of day. I think the rest of the stuff is great but I cannot see anything happening with regards to my sister.
Two weeks before Christmas I received a phone call telling me that unfortunately my prediction appeared to be coming unhappily true – his wonderful sister after feeling unwell had been to the doctors and cancer had been discovered. However they were going to America and seeking the best help possible and hopefully all would be well. In the march I received another telephone call saying that the cancer had spread and was terminal but he had cancelled all his overseas commitments to help look after his sister and her family through this dreadfully time. I received my final call on my birthday 2nd July, to say that his sister had passed away painlessly that morning – Somehow my reading had given him the strength to cope and help everyone else and he knew it was not the end just a moving on.
Although he didn’t receive money through her will a week later he had a windfall which he believed was sent from his sister in heaven.
13. WHAT IS THE MOST HUMOROUS ENCOUNTER YOU HAVE HAD DURING A READING?
There tends to be a certain amount of laughter even during the most dramatic of my readings I guess that’s because of my personal dry sense of humour but there have been many occasions when my communicator has relayed knowledge of events that the client thinks only they know about …. Causing laughter but reinforcing the fact that we are never ever truly alone.
14. HOW DO YOU ADVERTISE YOUR SERVICES?
I don’t really advertise my services. Most of my readings come through recommendation or from people surfing the web and discovering my website.
When I first began my work I serviced many spiritualist churches travelling far and wide to help other people find their own awareness and spiritual peace.
I was the president of the Mansfield spiritualist church for two years and when I moved to Scarborough I became the vice president of the GWA spiritualist church there for 2 years followed by a further 5 years as president,
People became aware of my abilities through witnessing my mediumship during the many services I gave.
I write a weekly Astro-Tarot column for a few local newspapers which are also published on my websites www.jeannettedupont.com and www.moonbird-enterprises.com along with my mum’s poetry site www.poetryandpublishing.com
The first Tuesday of every month I also broadcast my predictions on Yorkshire Coast Radio 96.2fm which I guess also creates a certain amount of interest
15. DO YOU DRESS IN COSTUME FOR YOUR READINGS?
NO… although I am naturally a flamboyant person and like to dress with a little sparkle and pazazz... I take my readings and abilities seriously –I am not performing a pantomime I am working for spirit … that is my faith – I honour other people’s views, beliefs and opinions and expect the same respect back.
16. RELIGIOUS LEADERS GENERALLY DISCREDIT CLAIROVOYANTS, HOW DO YOU RECONCILE YOUR GIFT WITH RELIGIOUS BELIEFS?
My thoughts… When I finally take my transition into spirit – If there is any way I can help my children to live a happier life by avoiding unnecessarily painful situations by communicating through a medium … I will do it -because I love them and I will continue to love and care for them even if I am no longer physically here.
I generally follow the teachings of Christ but I also embrace teaching from the many other great spiritual teachers that have blessed this earth plane with their presence.
My faith is a personal thing but because of the work I do people feel they have a right to criticize or condemn – all I can say is I believe that we have a responsibility to be kind. To help others when we can and to be tolerant of things we do not fully understand.
As a medium I am unable to communicate with a spirit being that does not want to communicate with me - I do not pressure anyone to seek my services; that is an individual’s choice.
We should all try to be as respectful of other peoples’ faiths as possible.
17. DO YOU PREFER TO GIVE READINGS TO PEOPLE YOU KNOW, FAMILY, OR TOTAL STRANGERS?
I prefer to work for strangers so that I do not have any prior knowledge of any given situation but I also am happy to read for people I know. As I work for higher spirit whatever comes through in a reading is coming from a greater source of knowledge than I could ever hope to possess – I would never allow my personal connection to interfere with a reading.
18. WHEN READING PALMS, DO YOU READ THE PAST AS WELL AS THE FUTURE?
I do not read palms but I do provide information regarding a persons past as well as present and future predictions.
19. IF YOU HAVE CHILDREN, HOW DO THEY REACT TO YOUR OCCUPATION?
I have never tried to influence my children in any way – They are still just children and later it will be their responsibility to find their own spiritual path however I know they are all extremely gifted on a psychic level. I have told them all I will answer their questions as honestly as I can whenever they want to ask … up to now they are content to have a slightly mad mum and I think they enjoy my local semi- celebrity status – I think they are proud of me.
My eldest child Mike has started attending an occasional development class and has astounded me with his ability to ‘link in’ through meditation with his spirit guides but at 19 he is more concerned with beautiful girls and enjoying being young.
20. IS THERE ANYTHING YOU WOULD LIKE TO ADD ABOUT YOUR BACKGROUND, YOUR TALENT, OR YOUR LIFE?
I met my husband Julian on 22 May 2008 it was love at first sight and we married on 1st May 2009 (I purchased my wedding dress two weeks before I met him … spooky?)
Julian is extremely psychic himself and our backgrounds are very similar even down to our Romany bloodlines.
We know we have been together in a couple of past life’s which we have both been made aware of through spiritual communications.
We now work together although he prefers to take a more administrative role only offering his clairvoyance when demanded but I believe Julian is my gift from spirit.
For years I worked alone bringing up my children whilst continuing my spiritual work trying to help other people find peace and happiness.
One day I felt so sad and wrote a poem – I don’t know what possessed me but I sent it to my mum who published it on her website. Not what I had intended her to do – straight away I began getting messages from people I didn’t know from all over the world telling me they were praying for me to find my true love – I felt a bit embarrassed and a little angry that my mum had published details of my life but at the same time I felt encouraged that people cared enough to pray for me …. The next day I met Julian
This was my poem
Why do I feel so alone?
When so many people inhabit my home.....
I long to feel full and happy and free
But my heart often feels heavy and so very empty.
I know you are there, protecting and caring
But the weight of woe sometimes is wearing
I want to make others aware of your being
But often they care not for what I am seeing
Give me the strength to stand this pain
This endless hoping, often in vain
That people will see that love is the key
And that I will discover yours, hides in me!
And this was one I wrote for our wedding
You heard and came to answer my prayer
And raise me up from my lonely despair
Your eyes like gleaming diamonds shone
And suddenly all my fears were gone
Hands waved welcome, lips smiled love
Spirits danced with a joy understood.
A soaring future hope like eagles flying
A thousand years and more defying
For neither time nor fortune could deny
The eternal need of a hearts desperate cry
Upon a promise once sworn to keep
For two splintered souls to be complete
United now beneath summer skies
Hand in hand with rings we tie
And vow to bind our beings together
Blending our fibres with love forever
So never more wretchedly wandering
Lost, afraid or emotionally crumbling
Nor seeking solace in foreign hearts
Feigning contentment to act the part
Instead with pleasures ever unfolding
We pledge our destiny to each other’s holding
For as one we two will live forever
Our spirits fused to be severed never
