Who Is James Higgins TV 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. ***James has recently taken down his website and we can only get to his services via Facebook or by searching the psychictoday.com website!***
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 provider 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 Keen 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’s 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. ***As stated above. James has recently taken down his website and we can only get to his services via Facebook or by searching the psychictoday.com website!***
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. ***We expect his availability to be limited, not only due to his increasing popularity but also because he works for psychictoday.com!*** 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 Keen, 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. (Now you’ll need to check his Facebook page or psychictoday.com1) 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: (not anymore, you can’t!)
- 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 Keen.
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.

This guy is as legit as a $3 bill.
He’s fake and is scamming and preying on people. On his live FB he makes out he’s really busy but you can get an email reading off him which I did. £32 for drivle which was about 1/4 page and didn’t make any sense, only to find out other people had the same reading and they aren’t done by him, he pays people pittance to do the email readings. Won’t even refund you either, just wish I had read the bad reviews first. I do not recommend this guy, I’m spiritual and would never do that to people, he isn’t… Read more »
He sends the same messages to everyone. His facebook site has been shut down by facebook. He created another one then that was taken down. There is a group that has over 800 members, myself included, that believe they have been scammed. If your not telling him how great he is he will block you. If you ask legit questions, he will block you. He will threaten to sue if you ask for your money back. If all your doing is looking for entertainment. He’s fine. Just don’t ever give him any money!
Booked a reading 2 weeks ago and nothing can’t believe someone would do such a thing 😡😡😡😡
DON’T PAY THIS FRAUDSTER!
I booked a “reading” with James and received complete drivel which meant nothing to me whatsoever. I asked for clarification on this and queried what type of reading was performed… the response was as bad as the reading! There are 1000’s of people who have been scammed by this fake medium. I’m hoping I can save someone the disappointment of being scammed too. My advice is to leave very well alone.
Despite my complaint I’m still being spammed by him/his team twice a day!
I saw James Higgins live on Facebook and liked his page. He contacted me through messenger to tell me someone was trying to “reach out” to me and I should book a reading as soon as possible. I booked and paid for the reading on 22nd June and James continued to spam me with messages to my inbox twice a day telling me to book a reading despite my many responses telling him I had booked and paid at Spirit HQ. The reading didn’t arrive, his FB page has been removed. I have asked for a refund 4 times but… Read more »
I purchased a reading was confirmed and haven’t gotten anything. I have tried to text but his sight is not there anymore. very disappointed
Total fraud! Him and his mum are scammers! He sends the same vague generic stuff out to everybody – how many of you were told there’s an older gentleman wanting to reach out?! There is no customer service on his website – no section for reviews, nothing for dealing with grievances, and it says on there no refunds. I paid £32.00 for a reading and never received it – I have initiated a reclaim of fee with my bank, as – here’s the rub – his site states no refunds and I have read from others that when you do… Read more »
Received my bs reading very shortly after demanding a refund.. still haven’t received a refund even though I requested one several times. Be warned he is fake as can be
I purchased a reading and never received it i. Title fraud I received a confirmation email and now he deleted his social mida
He is a complete fraud.. not only did he take nearly a month to get me my reading, when I got it, it was vague and didn’t apply to me. I found him on fb while he was doing a live and decided to join his page. He messaged me that he was drawn to me and I had “won” a spot for a paid email reading, impulsively I booked right then.. very soon after I began receiving several spam messages to my messenger urging me to book a reading now while my deceased loved one is near him (this… Read more »
I agree same thing happened to me – I am going to report to trading standards
Yes I did get my reading recently-mid June by email, after 3 weeks. I kept emailing both addresses- the admin one, & James Higgins, & got responses from Admin, eventually. They said they were inundated since covid, ie thousands of contacts being made. I was reasonably satisfied with the reading. Seemed like it was converted from spoken word to written by a robot-type form, part of it near the end was a repetition of former sentence
total scam i paid 40 US Dollars and haven’t recieved anything from him
All this print is lies and utter bull!! Take people’s money then don’t give them a reading!! I wouldn’t waste your time anyone!! I paid £32 for a reading and still waiting!! Been blocked and no way of contacting him!! Then the likes of places like this site advertise and condone him! All fraudsters who prey on the vunerable!! Should be ashamed
I paid for £32 for an Invitation reading and no response!!
Paid for a reading about a month ago ..never received..also receive numerous private messgs to get a reading, when i already paid for one I never receved!! I’m going to try to get my money back!
Wish I read these comments previously. Been a month with no contact. Total Fraud and waste of 32.
Totally agree. I paid £32 for an invitation for a reading paid on the 6.6.2020. Still waiting. Even blocked me off his Facebook page , contacting the bank to see if I can recall my payment
Paid £32 fir a reading and never received it.
I did and the reading was very contradictory, didn’t make sense and was very short. Other people got the same reading as me. £32 felt ripped off as it’s not James who does the readings rither
Has anyone ever got their money back?
No , not a bean back. now going for a chargeback with my bank.
I am waiting word back from my bank, they are investigating it. Why doesn’t anyone say anything on his lives on Facebook? Not one bad comment came up when I was persuaded to give over my payment
As the negative comments get blocked by the admin, an the people are blocked from commenting that’s why you don’t see any bad comments
There have been lots of comments, me included but as soon as they post he removes them and blocks the person.
I have been for reading cant even get through to James his email address is not valid. inpaud the money from Australia whitch its a lot nothin.yet . its a scam.
going to report it .
Grrrrrrr paid for 32. Invitation reading and no response
Should’ve known better!!!!!!
I have done the same Kathy. Any luck getting your money back?
same here, requesting money back, this scammer needs stopping!
Same thing happened to me, I paid £32 and I never got my reading.
Spirit come to me
Hi difficult to get my picture send to you Paid for reading. I have not received any communication from you. Please respond
I have still not received my reading greatly disappointed .I have paid £25 for a reading you’ve took my money and no response just emails what keep taking me to the same website for more money. I would like a refund of my £25 please as I’ve had no reading.
I have paid for a mini reading and get messages through asking for £5 I keep sending u back photo shot of money paid and when sent
Where is my reading 27thdec 2019 aid through Paypal £20
I have been waiting for a reading paid through PayPal since 27dec 2019 I have received nothing
I just did trying to book james Higgins for a reading
Have been trying to bk james for reading he has sent me messages saying my ex is thinking of me but have tryed on your web sight james
James you have contacted me through messenger. You offered me an email message for £20. My partner tried to pay for me by PayPal but there was a problem connecting to his card even though its registered. I tried to tell you this but just kept getting more pre typed messages 3?
James you have been sending your pre- typed messages to me through messenger ?. You also offered me an email reading but pay pal wouldn’t accept my partners card. I feel disappointed as I tried to tell you this on messenger but got no reply hence why I think your messengers are pre-taped
This guy was propelled into suddenly becoming a fb psychic after many attempts at other online work failed. At one point he was offering free readings if you shared a clothing page he was promoting at the time. I believe he’s no more psychic than my goldfish and it’s just a money money money machine for him and hes desperate to be a celeb. His readings are very vague and he plagues you to share or buy a text reading. Please avoid this one
I purchased an email reading paid over paypal and never received it? What do I do now?
Did you ever receive the reading?
Me too but not received it it was January 4 th. His messanger posts are just automated repeats as well
Same thing happen to me!!! I paid £32 for an invitation only reading and I never recieved one.
I paid for a reading a £20 one for a reading with James and they didn’t get back to me and I’m still waiting for my full reading with him I’m not happy as £20 is a lot of money to me and I was really looking forward to the reading he even badgered me for the reading every day x
I have paid for a reading .. and not had it ??
took a dispute of payment to get my reading bogus
You just need to watch twenty minutes of this guy to see he’s only trying to fleece people out of their money. He spends half his time asking people to share into groups and private message him for a £1 reply. The other half of his time is spent giving people vague statements that can apply to anyone. Clearly a fraud, and his page should be closed down.
Interestingly, his personal website is no longer live; although as you may know, he is doing Facebook live streams.
How do they process the charge for the reply if you’ve never entered a payment method?
I paid for a reading from James Higgins and was contacted through Facebook messenger. I was told to leave a screenshot of my proof of payment and asked questions about my upcoming reading and what I wanted. This happened almost immediately after payment. After that, I was told I would be contacted to schedule the reading. I was not contacted so I contacted him again to try to schedule. After no response after multiple attempts, I asked for a refund. I was told that he did not issue refunds but would go ahead and schedule the reading. It has been… Read more »
