Leanne’s Mediumship journey really began in 1980 at birth. Not only did she just happen to “know things”, had weird phenomena take place, easily experienced astral travel and other dimensions in the dream state, and saw Spirit throughout childhood, but she was born knowing her Mother was going to die tragically premature. From a very young age, Leanne knew how she was going to die and it was a matter of urgency. She spent the first 32 years of her life trying to save her Mother from this inevitable ending, “screaming it from the rooftops” making family aware that something was very wrong. Over the years Leanne’s abilities were diminished as she had no real support from home or extended family, a hard time fitting in with all things “normal”, and a rather difficult time conforming to school. In order to get on in society, shutting down was the only option.
In 2013, tragedy struck which forced a reawakening and a very painful reopening of her gifts. In August of 2015 Spirit guided Leanne to build the YouTube channel. In November 2016, her pre-formative Mediumship “training” began with Lisa Williams. This 13 week-long class led her to a 5-day mediumship event in New York that took place in June 2017, where she had a chance meeting with a sitter, an Englishman who studied at The Arthur Findlay College, where she did her first *official* blindfolded mediumship reading ever. In that moment, Leanne’s life changed. She went on to spend the summer in Lily Dale, New York working with various teachers as well as taking ongoing workshops and classes with teachers such as Lisa Williams, John Holland, Sharon Ann Klingler, Sandra Ann Taylor, James Vaan Praagh, Thomas John, Mavis Patilla, Collin Bates and a handful of others. A month later, in September 2017 she met a teacher from The Arthur Findlay College in Stansted, England, Andy Byng, and began a more formal mentorship program over the next year-plus.
After developing a beginner’s foundation with Andy, Leanne moved on from him and in November 2018 entered into more advanced classes as well as multi-mentorship programs with Tony Stockwell. With thirty-five+ years of mediumship and true life experience, he too teaches at Arthur Findlay, but with such an extensive background and travel schedule, he’s not restricted to the college. After some not-so-great experiences with other teachers, Leanne finally felt like she met a skillful and passionate master teacher with integrity and honor. She delved into beginning trance work with him, and in 2020-21 completed four-year-long mentorship programs that run parallel to each other, yet integrate beautifully together. They are The Advanced Spirit Worker, Psychic Detection, New Frontiers, and Private 1:1 mentorship. It will be a nice feeling to receive certificates for all of them once they are conferred. Leanne’s training and development has grown by leaps and bounds since working with Tony and she always looks forward to their private calls and class sessions.
