I found Spiritualism fairly late in my life, when I was 48 years old. After almost 30 years living in London, with careers as varied as nursing, antique dealing, singing, acting and modelling, I decided to move back to Lincolnshire in the UK, where I was raised as a child.
After a while, I decided to check out the local Spiritualist Church in Sleaford, and was soon attending on a regular basis, and making some new friends. Then one day I was invited to another Spiritualist Church near to Nottingham with some friends, and it was there that the medium advised me to begin developing as a medium, as I possessed an ability which needed to be used. After some coaxing from my friends I found out that the medium came from Sleaford also, and I was asked to visit her at her home, and she would put me on the path. That's when I was introduced to my guide 'Running Foot', who taught me how to communicate with the Spirit world in just 1 week! Suddenly I could see, hear, and sense the spirit people
Well, it wasn't long before I started to use this ability and I began to give private sitting's. People started to pass on my name and phone number, and bookings started to come in. Then I was invited to take the services and demonstrations in Spiritualist Churches and centres, and from that there were invitations to speak and demonstrate in local clubs (Young Farmer's Club's, Women's Institute etc.). The field of activity widened very quickly, and I began doing fund-raisers for local charities, and to date an estimated £60,000 has been raised through my charity work. My favourite charities are connected with animal welfare, and many people will know that my particular favourite is the Cat's Protection, which I have supported for many years.
My work over the years has led naturally into writing about my experiences as a Medium and how I have dealt with experiences that include helping the police with murder investigations, helping the families of murder victims, suicides, parents who have lost young children, abortions; all peppered with some more humorous stories about the people I have met along the way, the lives I have touched and enriched with the knowledge of life after death.
I have written and published 4 books, 'Just A Touch Away' 1991, 'I'm Here Listening' 1992, 'Spirit, My Second Home' 1994, and 'Is There Anybody There?' 1998. All books sold out and are currently out of print. NEW: Bryan's last book 'Is There Anybody There?' has been updated with some new stories of his experiences and re-published - AVAILABLE NOW DIRECTLY FROM BRYAN OR FROM AMAZON
I have also been involved in radio and television through my work as a medium. In 1997 I did a live phone-in show for 6 months on 'Century Radio', a commercial station in Newcastle-upon-Tyne and Gateshead, North East England. In 1998 I worked with the BBC for a documentary in the Everyman series, which was screened on BBC 1 (this has been optioned for world-wide distribution so it could be shown anywhere in the future).
My work plays a very important role in my life, and I know that I have to try and reach as many people as possible and let them know that death is not the end of life, that we go on and move into a new cycle of living. Although the body dies, the Spirit, the personality and memory lives on and is capable of intelligent communication with those still living in the physical world. This then, can only strengthen us with the knowledge that the bonds of love remain absolutely unbroken by the event called “death”.
