As a child, she communicated with spirits. As an adult, her desire to be of service evolved into a passion for social justice and the pursuit of truth, which led her to a career as a major media political journalist and an embedded Iraq war correspondent. A tragic loss became the catalyst that brought her back to spirituality, particularly Eastern philosophy, and working with the mediumistic faculty she's had since childhood.

I had a remarkable mediumship session with Karen. I was having a difficult time grieving a year after the sudden death of my loved one. Karen conveyed detailed, complex aspects of his character and personality. She shared memories known only to the two of us and provided a perspective on his passing that gave me peace. I am deeply grateful for her willingness to sit with us and search for understanding, beyond what was required and expected. A beautiful, healing experience - thank you!
I received a Soul Reading with Karen. I feel she completely understood the essence of my being in this lifetime. She intuited my childhood and middle years expertly. And her advice was highly appropriate. She offered a strong potential pathway going forward that fits within my search for meaning. I'm very happy to have met Karen and I highly recommend a Soul Reading session with her.
An extraordinary experience! Karen doesn’t just give an evidentiary reading, she gives a detailed snapshot of your loved ones essence - from their external appearance to their personality traits and idiosyncracies. It’s as if she absorbs this complex understanding of who they were as she communicates and relays the messages. This took the experience to a whole new level for me as I could feel Tony’s presence as if he was physically there. Thank you Karen for this incredible gift.
This was my second mediumship reading from Karen and it did not disappoint . I’ve had many readings before so quite fussy at this point however I really enjoyed this . It was healing and informative and went beyond my expectations. Karen connected with two people for me , both of whom I was hoping to hear from , was evidential but more so she took on their sayings and expressions and humour . It felt like I was communicating with them directly. I highly recommend a reading with Karen
I had a medium ship session with Karen. She gave a very descriptive and detailed reading of my wife. This was a session of very encouraging communication for me with specific information that helped me a great deal. Karen was very good at communicating both with myself and the person who came forward. Thank you.
I was present in a group reading on Halloween 31 St, which Karen generously gave for free. Though I was expecting someone else , my scientist grandpa did come over and I felt very encouraged by that.
Karen provided a wonderful session for me--she intuited my loved one's personality perfectly and told me three key things I needed to hear--I didn't even know I needed to hear them, but they were the exact things that have helped me to heal. She confirmed things I had intuited and she provided specific details about my loved ones so that I knew they were there. I have tried other mediums, but they were not even close to as accurate and thoughtful and wise.
I had a lovely session with karen yesterday. I was suffering from a lot of stress and anxiety and exhaustion since my mother passed. The session was very healing and restorative. She was able to connect with my mother and recount wonderful details and very special memories that she and I shared. She ended with a short intuitive reading which helped me to identify some things I was doing that were not helpful to my mind/body/spirit and offered some meditations and practices to help.
Karen Frances provided me with an opportunity to learn and grow through communication with people who are among my closest loved ones. Karen's professionalism also allowed me to gain new understanding of how a medium can provide opportunity to communicate in ways that are different from working through psychic gifts alone. I gained new information that is already helping me be present and move through the next years and stages of my life.
I am very grateful to Karen and her wonderful work. Her readings and healings have helped me through some tough times and gave me insight on things I could work on internally. After our sessions I am left with a feeling of peace and optimism for what lies ahead.
Karen is a compassionate Evidential and Healing Medium. I've had excellent experiences in receiving healing from Karen. Working with her has had a calming effect and her intuition, with areas that need healing, is spot on.
Karen has given me two fantastic, insightful, thoughtful, right-on-target intuitive readings. She has a gift for taking what she receives and using it to skillfully advise you. She's straightforward and honest, which I so appreciate, but also compassionate and caring. I'd highly, highly recommend her. In fact, I have, to several friends. I've also done several intuitive development workshops with Karen...which were terrific. She's just at the top of her field...and a lovely person to boot!
Karen is a wonderful medium and healer. She brought very clear messages from my loved ones and painted accurate pictures of the personalities who have passed. My experience was very uplifting as I enjoyed reconnecting in a very natural way. I feel this was down to Karen's unique gift and vast experience.
I want to thank Karen for the wonderful mediumship reading I received. She spoke with such clarity and gave me very true detailed information that no one else could have known. She delivered messages in a compassionate manner and afterwards I felt a great sense of healing.
Karen Francis is one of the best mediums and psychic coaches that I have met to date. She really knows her stuff and it is such a pleasure to be guided by her. She does not waste time getting to the heart of both her teaching as a coach and bringing clear evidence from beyond as a medium. She is a down to earth woman who will not waste your time. If you want the best, I strongly recommend her both as a teacher and an excellent medium.
