Who Is James Higgins Psychic Medium?
James Higgins Psychic Medium is a British Psychic Medium who seems to work predominantly from his Facebook Page @thespiritmedium. He is the son of Deborah Davies who is another Facebook Psychic who we have recently reviewed.
James doesn’t explain (at least not in writing) how he has developed his psychic and mediumship skills. We think it’s probably very possible that his Mother taught him. As James is prolific with his Facebook live posts and videos, we can assume that he may have explained how he has developed his skills during his live feeds. We were not, however, able to confirm that.
James has a website to promote his psychic services and also provides free live readings very regularly via a Facebook live stream. These live streams are very popular and have helped James to attain a following of over 100,000 people.
But is James Higgins Psychic Medium legit? Is he even experienced enough to provide good readings? Keep on reading to find out.
In the meantime, however, if you need a reading from an experienced psychic, you can do so with confidence by using our recommended and highly-rated psychic providers linked below.
Is James Higgins Psychic Medium Legit?
It seems as though James Higgins is definitely a legitimate person who works prolifically in the spiritual arena. We suspect that he is also legitimately psychic. However, we couldn’t find any reviews or comments to support this claim. So, if you are going to have a reading from James, then you are going to have to take him at his word or watch a few hours of his live feeds to decide if he is worth investing in. He is undoubtedly very confident.
This might not be a good enough answer for the more discerning though. We have to agree that it’s important to find good psychics if you want to make the most out of a reading. And you are guaranteed to find this (complete with reviews) on sites such as Kasamba or Psychic Source.
The other issue we have with James is that he claims to be a ‘celebrity psychic’ and to have featured in a number of mainstream publications. These claims may be true, but they are also exaggerated. We can see that James is definitely growing a significant following on Facebook and he is doing extremely well there. We do not, however, consider him to be a ‘celebrity’ psychic.
A Celebrity Psychic For Real?
When we saw that James uses the statement “as seen in The Daily Mirror, Unilad … “ etc. We thought that perhaps he had a column in these publications. We were curious as to what the connection to these publications is all about and even if we could find out what made him stand out to be spotted by them.
But the real tea is that during one of James’ live paranormal investigations the owner of the property he was investigating challenged a spirit rather aggressively. This resulted in James having to stop the investigation because he thought it was becoming unsafe. The whole live stream was very dramatic and quite uncomfortable but it made great viewing.
Somehow, these publications mentioned by James got hold of the story (either because one of them watched the live stream or even perhaps because James or someone around him understands PR and sent in the story). We don’t know how the publications became aware of the story. But it was published.
Every feature about James in all of these publications is the same story and we couldn’t find any other interaction between James and these publications. So this clearly makes James’ statement somewhat embellished, to say the least. No to mention misleading.
So while we do believe James Higgins Psychic Medium to be legit, we don’t consider him to be a ‘celebrity psychic’.
James has recently written directly to us here at the Psychic Guild to explain his use of the term ‘Celebrity Psychic’ so here’s what he says:
So, ‘The Celebrity Psychic’ term that I was using is actually because I have been reading for celebrities recently. Due to data protection, however, a lot of the people I read for want this to be kept away from the public eye. I’m not referring to myself as the celebrity, though, just to clear that one up! You might have noticed I have changed my name to ‘TV Psychic Medium’ because I’m presenting on SKY TV now.
How the James Higgins Psychic Medium Website Works
James’ website is straightforward, he advertises a variety of reading types, and that’s pretty much it. To purchase, you click the links, pay via Paypal and then follow the instructions. These instructions usually involve sending James an email to let him know that you’ve made a purchase.
The turnaround time for readings is longer than most other psychic providers. You can wait up to 7 days for an email reading. And when it comes to booking his telephone readings, you can’t see when James is available or how long you have to wait before he can book a reading with you. Although we are sure that if you emailed James, he’d probably let you know his availability. It’s just one or two steps more to complete to get your reading that you don’t have to do if you used a specialised psychic provider like Kasamba or Psychic Source.
James Higgins Psychic Medium offers paid services for 1-2-1 readings and also pro-bono readings and competitions. Below is everything that James currently offers.
The In-Depth Reading
You can choose a 12 card tarot reading, a spirit message or a mix of both when you book an in-depth reading. The cost is usually £50, but at the time of writing James had a sale and was promoting the readings for £20.
There’s not much written by James to explain what you can expect from this reading aside from it being a detailed reading. We assume you’ll receive an email reading.
But there are some points that you’ll need to be aware of when you book the reading.
- James doesn’t offer refunds and also that it can take up to 7 days for your reading to be returned to you.
- You’ll also need to ‘private message James’ to claim your reading’ which we assume means that you have to private message him on Facebook.
You can purchase spells from James, and at the time of writing, they were £2 each which reduced from £10.
He offers the following spells.
You’ll need to select the spell you would like from the options available on the James Higgins Psychic Medium website. All Spells are then said to be carried out at midnight each night by James.
There are a few things you need to know concerning the spells. You’ll find the details below and on James’ website such as:
- “Spells do not replace medicines prescribed by your GP. In the event you are getting symptoms of being unwell please call your GP or Emergency Services for further advice.” – James Higgins
- Results of spells may vary.
There’s no description about what is involved with the mini reading or how to book them but you get to ask five questions, apparently. The cost is £10 reduced from £20 at the time of writing.
Once again there’s no real description or instruction about this service, but for £20 reduced from £50, you can get a love reading. We have no idea how long it will be, or even whether it’s via email or not (we assume email though).
But you can get answers to questions such as these taken from James’ website:
- Do you want to know where your love life is taking you?
- Will I meet my long term partner in the future?
- Will an existing relationship blossom?
60 Minute Phone Reading
Here’s how James explains this reading on his website:
“Enjoy a 60-minute phone call with James Higgins Psychic Medium where he will read for you and answer any questions you have. (Limited Availability – Only one available per Day).
Private Message ‘James Higgins Psychic Medium’ once you have made your booking to arrange a time suitable for your Phone Reading.”
This reading cost’s £50 at the time of the reading reduced from £60.
We have to say that we do appreciate that James readings are very reasonably priced, but we don’t like having to wait for a reading. We’d much prefer to get one instantly when we need one. Unfortunately, James doesn’t offer these services.
James Higgins Psychic Medium Free Services
James frequently offers competitions where you can win free readings and other prizes. He usually posts the details of the competitions on his Facebook page.
Live Mini Psychic Messages Via Facebook Live Streams
James often does a Facebook live stream where he will provide small messages for anybody who participates in his streaming. To get this, you have to be watching him live and usually make a comment to let him know you are present and interested in a message.
The messages are typically minimal though, and you’d probably need another reading to clarify the message. This is an entertaining stream and great marketing for James. It’s also a great way to help people even if it’s briefly who could not otherwise afford a reading.
Tip: You can’t get instant messages from James. So, if you need further clarification we suggest you take advantage of the often free or heavily discounted introductory offers. You can get these at sites such as Psychic Source or Kasamba.
Prizes For The Best Fan
Facebook monitors page interactions and then highlights to the page owners the best fan or the person who comments the most. James rewards these people with free readings, messages or priority over the rest of his followers.
Live Paranormal Investigations
Sometimes James goes to investigate haunted locations, and when he does so, he streams it live on Facebook. This is usually great entertainment and worth watching if you are interested in the paranormal.
James Higgins Customer Service and Promises To You
James doesn’t make any big promises or bold claims about his customer service, but he doesn’t have any complaints that we could find. So we assume that he delivers on his promises.
James seems to offer a fair exchange for his prices. And while we don’t love the extra steps we need to take to engage with James, or the wait time, we can appreciate that he is an independent psychic. So he may not have the means to provide a more streamlined process at the moment.
However, you can get much better features from a psychic site which has a variety of verified psychics available 24/7. You can usually get great introductory offers too.
What We Love About James Higgins
- James’ enthusiasm and personality.
- James’ generosity.
- The community feel on James’ Facebook page.
- How entertaining James makes psychic phenomena.
What We Don’t Love About James Higgins
- More work could be done to streamline the booking of readings.
- James’ questionable celebrity status.
- We are not sure whether James is more focused on attaining celebrity status rather than providing great readings.
James seems to be an innovative and personal psychic, who also seems to be legit. He seems to be motivated and working hard to build his reputation as a good psychic and certainly seems to be doing just that. However, we don’t think he has achieved enough ‘celebrity status’ for us to be waiting around for a reading from him. Especially when we know we can get great readings instantly.
We definitely think that James Higgins might be worth exploring if you are interested in exploring different psychics. But you will have to use your discernment with his ability. Even though we didn’t watch all of James content, we watched a couple of hours worth and only found one endorsement. Due to this, we feel that discernment should be applied.
If you want an instant reading, we’ve listed our recommended sites below, and you can find James on Facebook (@thespiritmedium).
