Welcome to my website

I am a psychic medium, healer and author and I work with intuition, tarot and Gestalt therapy techniques to guide my clients to uncover meaning and rediscover their own wisdom and strength. I also offer fertility and pregnancy reflexology, and birthing guidance from my 10+ years' experience as a former birth doula.

I have studied and worked with Ina May Gaskin, Michel Odent, Sheila Kitzinger, Dr Gowri Motha and Janet Balaskas, and bring my own personal experience from four positive home births.

I am also a bereaved parent and hold a certificate in Humanistic Counselling in the Gestalt therapy discipline.

I have studied, worked with and developed my abilities for 30 years, and woven all the strands of my life experience together to offer intuitive guidance in the form of mediumship sittings, healing sessions and counselling support for fertility and birth.

You do not need to believe in, or practise, anything in order to benefit from what I offer. All you need to do is come with an open mind and be ready to receive.

'Goodbyes are only for those who love with their eyes. For those who love with their heart and soul there is no such thing as separation.'

– Rumi

Since childhood, I have had a fascination with the 'other'. I saw and experienced things I found difficult to explain or understand, and came to realise that I possessed both psychic and mediumistic abilities.

There is a saying that all mediums are psychic, but not all psychics are mediums. Psychic ability is the skill of using an extra sense to 'read' people, places and objects. 

Mediumship is the ability to connect with those who have passed to spirit. When we develop mediumship, we work at opening the heart and the mind, and commit to living with kindness, grace and integrity. It is vital that mediumship is used only for the highest good of those who seek it.

I have developed my abilities over three decades and have been privileged to learn from many gifted mediums.

I am also a certified healer, gaining my healing accreditation following two years of in depth training at the College of Psychic Studies in 2010.

My approach to intuitive work is to trust that the right information will come to you via the correct process during the time that we have together. This means that I may work using mediumship, or by using tarot cards as a tool for connection-very often both. You may also choose to use a session to receive healing, or support with fertility or birthing. 

I see my role as both a conduit and a mirror: to receive from the world of spirit (or the Universe, or God, or whichever terminology you are comfortable with) the information that will best serve my client, allowing freedom to move forwards in life. I believe that we all know our own purpose, and I love to help my clients to learn how to trust, and use their own intuition.

I am passionate about making the spiritual arts available to all; rather than shrouding the topic in mystery I prefer to marry intuition with practical guidance and dialogue. I spent a year immersing myself in the study of Gestalt psychotherapy in order to inform my intuitive work, and hold a Certificate in Humanistic Counselling Skills from The Gestalt Centre in London.

I work one to one in person in Brighton and also online via Zoom. I offer sittings of one hour and one and a half hours' duration. The longer sitting allows for a more in depth exploration of the theme(s) you wish to bring, plus some time for questions.

 

Testimonials

'I didn’t know much about Ali's method before our session, apart from the advice to approach it with openness. Due to the nature of using tarot cards the conversation was very honest and I felt each card really represented different aspects of my journey, both professionally and personally. Ali has a strong presence and she was able to channel my energy and give me incredible insights throughout our session, it didn’t matter that it was online. Towards the end of the session, Ali gave really good advice, which linked the reading/conversation to clear actions and tasks.'
~ Anna

'Enlightening, emotional and left me feeling really comforted and full of hope and positivity. Ali has a wonderful gift and a lovely way of delivering it.'

'I found the whole experience of a reading with Ali extremely uplifting. She is a very warm and welcoming person whom I felt I could trust. I felt supported throughout the reading. You can see that Ali takes readings - and the wellbeing of her clients - very seriously and works hard to ensure the experience is of benefit.'
~ Clare
'A wonderful intuitive reading from Ali, she really was amazing. She was spot on about what was going on in my life and about how I can navigate things to move forward. She touched on so much truth and the whole experience was very emotional for me as she was so understanding and accurate about was happening. I certainly came away feeling stronger and more empowered, with a better understanding of life issues. I can highly recommend Ali, she has a natural gift and talent, and is a very kind and warm person. I took to and trusted her instantly; so much so that after just one meeting she already feels like a friend.'
~ Nikki
 

'Ali is an incredible and intuitive person. Her kind energy and ability to hold space made me totally at ease. I wanted a combination of tarot with psychic advice; I wanted support and guidance for my path in business and she nailed it! My session was expansive and detailed at the same time and it was very clear where I was and what I needed to do to move forward. I highly recommend Ali as a support and I can't wait for our next session.'

About Ali Norell

Once upon a time, I worked in public relations; communicating on behalf of organisations including Battersea Dogs and Cats’ Home and The Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew. I then worked for over a decade as a reflexologist specialising in fertility and as a birth doula, travelling the world to train and work with the best in this field. Intuitive counselling sessions can be tailored to you if you are seeking to become pregnant, or wish to talk through birthing - either before, or after the event. 

During this time I also trained as a healer and sat in circle as a developing psychic medium.

At the other end of life’s spectrum, I wrote a blog, Remembering Romy, and then a book, The Truth Inside, about the death of my youngest daughter, Romy, in 2014. I completed a two-year, MA level creative writing course and my fiction work has been long and shortlisted in several international competitions. You can read more about my writing here.

I hold a Certificate in Humanistic Counselling Skills from The Gestalt Centre in London and love applying some of the theories and techniques of Gestalt psychotherapy to deepen my intuitive work.

Communication has been a thread that has run throughout my life: from the study of languages to public relations to writing and speaking, advising women to better know their bodies and to birth positively, and the study of psychotherapy. I regard it as an immense privilege to be able to communicate with those in spirit.

I love languages and speak Italian, French and German. I have a lifelong passion for flamenco and danced for many years and I live in Brighton – the San Francisco of the U.K. – with my husband, three children and three cats.

Tarot

Tarot has a vast and complex history spanning many countries and influences but to most, it’s regarded as a divinatory, or ‘fortune telling’ tool. While open to all possibilities when I work with tarot, I prefer to work with the cards in dialogue with my client. I like to think of a reading as ‘counselling with pictures’.

Each deck of cards holds subtly different nuances and I love to work through the images with a client, pinpointing key themes for the individual and discussing the best ways to overcome obstacles. No two readings are ever the same, and yet it is startling to me how often the same theme repeats in successive cards when there is clearly a topic that requires observation and discussion.

I have a selection of decks and work with whichever appeals on the day. I read in person, in my comfortable sitting room and also online via Zoom. I do not chant, look into a crystal ball or tell you someone is going to die. I will ask questions. We will look at some of the images together and you will be invited to contribute your sense of what the images mean. I will, of course, give you my intuitive insights into whatever situation you have brought.

I almost always begin a sitting with tarot, using my psychic abilities to give insight into your current situation and whatever is most useful for you. If appropriate, I will also use my mediumistic abilities to connect with those who have passed to spirit. Each sitting is unique and may end up being a mixture of both.

My aim in every sitting is the same: to give whatever information I am able, in as clear and precise a way as I can, for the highest good of my client and in the hope that it will uplift, guide and comfort.

Healing

Healing comes in many forms. It can be referred to as 'Faith healing', 'Spiritual healing', 'Reiki', 'Hands on Healing' and probably many other terms from various cultures and practises. I prefer the simple term, 'Healing'.

I gained a Diploma in Healing from the College of Psychic Studies in 2010. This involved two years of in depth study both in and outside class, participation in a healing circle, the completion of a number of case studies and an observed healing and interview before a panel.

When I work in person, you will be seated in a chair, fully clothed and I will tune into, and work with, your energy. With permission, I may place my hands on the body but if this is not comfortable I can work 'hands off'. You may experience a tingling sensation, you may feel sleepy and you may feel a warm, or cold, sensation where my hands are.

A healing session is difficult to describe as each one is unique to the recipient and depends on what issues they bring. It can feel calming, grounding and can help to ease specific ailments.

It is important to note that in no way does healing replace medical knowledge. I am not a medical practitioner and if I feel that you have brought a health issue to me before having consulted a medical professional I may ask you to do so before proceeding. Ideally, healing is a complementary therapy and works alongside medicine to create balance and harmony.

'Everyone is on a spiritual path; most people just don't know it. The spiritual journey is the unlearning of fear and the acceptance of love.' - Marianne Williamson

Women’s Circles

Ancient rites speak of ‘The Three Phases of Womanhood’: Maiden, Mother and Crone. I have designed women's spaces for connection, creativity and sharing based on these three phases.

I can’t tell you how many times I’ve heard women in particular say, ‘I’m not at all creative’. Well, regardless of whether or not you happen to be a mother, I believe that every woman is in possession of an innate creativity and you’ll be surprised at what you can conjure up with a little bit of guidance.

Mother and Daughter Empowerment Circle

Open for mothers of any age and their daughters aged 11 to 16, this circle brings together older wisdom and young energy. We will make vision boards together and explore the complex and beautiful mother/daughter relationship with laughter and connection.

Mother's Blessing Circle

A mother's blessing circle is basically a spiritual alternative to a baby shower, focusing on the rite of passage into motherhood. Ideally, this would be organised by a close friend, mother or sister, gathering the closest female circle of the mother-to-be to spend time together honouring her own rebirth into motherhood.
During our time together we will form a circle and carry out rituals together to empower the mother-to-be, who will be treated like the queen she is for the time we are together.

Midlife Circle

Midlife, or menopause, is often regarded as a time of disappointment, loss and lack. In this circle, we will discuss the renewed energy of this third stage of womanhood, and embrace the opportunity to step back into our power and purpose.

Please get in touch with me to register your interest for any of these circles.
