Michelle has been reading the tarot cards for over seventeen years now. Over her many years of practice and study she has developed her own style of reading the cards within a traditional tarot framework, with great success. Michelle uses her in-depth knowledge of the cards in combination with natural intuition. In her readings she is able to see the probable outcomes of situations and shed light on relevant areas for her clients. She also brings extra insight from her knowledge of astrology, Jungian psychology and spiritual philosophy; along with a hefty dose of practical common sense.
With Persian heritage on her father’s side Michelle has always been drawn to different religions and cultures. Her studies began when she was eighteen years old after the death of a family member, when she began to read a wider variety of spiritual books in the quest for answers to larger life questions. Her exploration with the tarot was sparked four years later after a friend did an informal reading for her. Michelle sensed the tarot could be the key she had been searching for.
For the first few years Michelle dedicated herself to the formal knowledge base of the tarot tradition: she memorised the card meanings, read the classic books and practised diligently in order to master the many layers, patterns and hidden meanings within the spreads. With time, persistence and extensive practice she evolved into a sensitive, adept reader. Strangers began approaching Michelle for readings through word of mouth. She began to do occasional events work while keeping her day job working in corporate offices.
When an opportunity arose for Michelle to work in Notting Hill reading tarot professionally full time, a new phase began. Positive news spread quickly about Michelle’s gift and clients returned often for follow up readings as her predictions had proved to be accurate.
In 2011 Michelle was recruited by Treadwell’s Bookshop in London and joined their team. She is now a Treadwell’s in-house reader and sees clients there two days a week. Michelle is also available for events work and private readings (via Skype and telephone). See link for ‘Booking Your Reading’.
Michelle is a genuine and experienced tarot reader. She shows her clients future possibilities and various paths, which may open up. With this, she emphasises the importance of the ‘now’ since present choices and actions can affect the future. She is compassionate, non-judgemental and endeavours to help her clients gain insight and understanding into those areas of life which they wish to explore.
