Psychic Reading Events & Parties
Kathleen is booked for Corporate/Private Parties until 2015!!
has been a huge entertainment success at many corporate events,
celebration parties, showers, birthdays, graduations, and
staff appreciation retreats. Many organizers are shocked at
the boost in their attendance just because she is going to
be there doing readings. They are completely amazed when people
are asking where the line up begins before Kathleen has had
a chance to set herself up! Several party planners have been
caught in a desperate situation realizing that they had only
booked Kathleen for her 2 hour minimum and people are grumbling
they might not have their turn.
- Toyota has contracted Kathleen to read at their
Sales Staff appreciation weekends at Langdon Hall in Cambridge.
- The City of Kitchener and the Perimeter
Institute contract Kathleen to read at their staff
Wellness Days, and festivals.
- The Tea Association of Canada contracts Kathleen
every January to read at their New Year's celebration at
the Royal York.
- Pharmaceutical companies in southern Ontario contract
Kathleen to read at their company-hosted staff training
weekends at Langdon Hall.
- Several entertainment companies in the southern
Ontario region have sub-contracted Kathleen to read at Christmas
parties, BBQ's, bachelor-ette parties and residential management
- Corporate and private celebrations are always pleased
and stunned at the excitement their staff expresses at having
Kathleen read at events.

the Royal York Hotel in Toronto where Kathleen does readings
for all attendees yearly.
Kathleen's Reflections on Psychic Parties
Typically in a month I receive 4 – 5 queries to do a “Psychic
Party”. This means would I like to be the entertainment at
a birthday, shower, retirement, or fund raiser etc. A few
emails have come in from thousands of kilometers away making
me wonder if I’ve exaggerated my abilities.
When I first started doing readings professionally I leaped
at every party gig with enthusiasm. Some hostesses (no I’ve
never been invited to do a men’s circle) would plant me in
upper or lower level rooms and guests would file one by one
into my assigned space for an individual reading. I was told
how many were expecting a reading and how long each one was
to be. It was all done in a very orderly fashion following
a list the hostess had prepared prior to the event.
Others were wildly chaotic. Once I was invited to a company
party and no sooner sat down at a tiny table when the lights
were lowered and the music volume was cranked through speakers
no more than ten feet from my head. All night I sat staring
at lips moving across from me and went home at the end of
the night hoarse from screaming out a bazillion readings.
Another company Christmas party had invited me along with
a couple of other entertainers (clowns, singers etc). As soon
as the guests discovered that the woman sitting at a small
table in front of the stage (yes there was quite a din on
stage behind me) was doing readings, the line up quickly amassed
all the way around the banquet room. The party organizer had
made the regrettable mistake of contracting me for 2 hrs.
only. In less than ten minutes I looked up to see her bustling
over to me with a stricken face, “Can you stay longer? PLEASE
say yes?!” I looked at the line and closed my eyes listening
to the roar and said, “No I’m so sorry I have another Christmas
party right on the heels of this one.” Yes of course it was
a lie. My only after gig plans were to go home and lie down.
But I’ve experienced other extremes too. One of my event parties
at Langdon Hall treated me like the Queen Herself. Sending
a limo for me, situating me in a sun room beside a sideboard
heaped with freshly made truffles and acting refreshingly
relaxed about how much time I spent with each guest – allowing
for a natural flow whereby the people who wanted to spend
longer time with me could while others were happy to simply
chat with me for a few minutes. I looked out at the pastoral
landscape outside my window and wondered how on earth I got
I stopped doing “Psychic parties” over the past couple of
years mostly because I was finding them just too exhausting.
Reading for one client after another is hard work. It’s like
the Olympics of mental gymnastics. It takes concentration
and focus but it also demands a certain flexibility – rather
like running up a steep flight of stairs with full glasses
of water balanced in each hand. Add to this challenge a hectic,
anticipatory pace with anxious clients who are often drinking
wine to settle their nerves; loud, unpredictable noise, and
switching off from reading to chatting, to assembly and dismantling;
the travel back and forth and working to keep up with the
demands of the rest of my practice at the same time and really
it’s become easy to say, “No thank you!”
It’s sort of like why I don’t do bungie jumping, or attend
loud concerts or go to Canada’s Wonderland and see how many
roller coasters I can fit in in day. Pushing 60, I have become
rather fond of quiet, personal, and focused readings with
clients in the privacy of my home office. But then again if
just the right invite appeared and I was in a certain frame
I have a deep desire to give my clients, whoever or wherever
they are, the very best work I can. I do believe the work
I do is sacred and privileged and to show my gratitude I owe
it to those who grant me a welcome into their lives for whatever
length of time the most accurate and helpful predictions possible.
In a party atmosphere this goal can feel elusive especially
when sitting across from the poor person who has been designated
last in line which is typically the hostess! And that’s the
biggest problem with parties – as the line reaches its end
so does my focus and freshness.
