Attending one of her live show will gives you the opportunity to experience a professional and skilful Australian medium at work.

The seminar beings with an informative and revealing talk about the spirit realm, the ways in which different mediums and Rebecca herself work with those whose home is now on the ‘other side.’ Followed by ‘overheads’, (audience readings) where she demonstrates her mediumship capability by going directly to a person and bring through proof of survival (that life is truly eternal) as well as passing on messages of love. Rebecca gives the audience the opportunities to ask questions at the closing stages of her seminars.

Rebecca is an extremely gifted medium and her abilities to bring forth exceptional proof of survival and intimate and accurate details of love ones who have crossed over scares more than a few but amazes most!
