How to Book A Session with Karen
Karen's office from the hallway
Karen charges $150 for her 50-minute appointments for either mediumship or her psychic abilities. If you are looking to book a mediumship appointment, Karen asks that you read her page on mediumship so that you get the best possible experience. If you are paying cash, Karen offers a $10 discount, which may not be combined with any other discount.
Karen books on a first-come first-served basis, so if you call to find out what her schedule is, then look at your schedule later, the most convenient time for you may be taken, as calls come in all day long for appointments. Karen wants you to get the most convenient time for you. You will find that, by following these simple steps, you will be able to book with confidence.
- Have your schedule handy before you call.
- Karen is in the office usually on Mondays, Thursdays and Saturdays.
- Karen does telephone readings on Tuesdays. She does not do telephone consultations from her office.
- Call to make an appointment at 860-665-8024 between 9:00 a.m. and 7:30 p.m. seven days weekly Eastern Time to make an appointment. If we do not answer, please leave a message. We will get back to you, usually within one day.
- Karen's sessions are for fifty minutes. She occasionally runs a few minutes over if she is working on something complex or someone is in deep grief. Karen will not abruptly end any appointment and she reserves the right to be thorough and courteous to all of her clients. Be assured, Karen's focus will be on you as soon as your session begins. If your schedule is inflexible, please plan to book when you have some flexibility. Karen has every intention of being respectful of your time and hers.
- Do not call to "speak with Karen" to "determine if your energy is compatible with Karen's" or to "pre-qualify her for your reading." Karen does not answer the telephone and she does not do that. Karen does not do "test" readings by phone. There is more than enough information on this website to determine if Karen is the right Psychic/Medium for you, from television shows where she has been interviewed, to live readings over the radio to the articles she has written and the articles that have been written about her.
- If you are booking an appointment, you must have a credit card to reserve your time. Karen accepts MasterCard, Visa and Discover. This includes a booking where you bring a friend as well as a Couples' Reading.
- If you are booking a reading at Karen's office, you will be asked your first and last name as well as a telephone number where you may be reached or where we may leave a voicemail message that you will respond to. Please do not give a "fake name" when booking. It shows disrespect for Karen and yourself. If you cannot trust the fact that Karen is truly psychic, then she is not your Psychic.
- If you are booking for a friend of yours, you are responsible for that appointment. You will not be allowed to rebook or book yourself for an appointment if your friend does not show for the appointment you booked, unless you pay for the missed appointment.
- If you are booking a telephone appointment, you will be asked for your full name, your address and a credit card number. This is to save you time, your time will be spent considering you and not getting payment information. Karen accepts MasterCard, Visa and Discover.
Confirming in-person sessions
If you are a new client, you are required to confirm your appointment the day before your appointment in her office. (phone consultations do not need to confirm in advance, if you are not at your phone during your phone appointment, you lose your spot). We ask, in advance, if the phone number you have given us is able to receive text messages and we leave a text the day before your appointment. If we cannot leave a text or voicemail and do not hear back from you by the end of the business day the day before, we reserve the right to replace you in Karen's schedule.
If you have booked an appointment and you do not confirm, we may charge the credit card you gave us to reserve the time.
Karen often will use a regular deck of playing cards in a consultation
Karen's private readings are for fifty minutes whether they are by phone or in her office. Karen books her appointments back to back so as to be efficient with her time and yours. Occasionally Karen may run a few minutes over if she is working on something complex, or someone is in deep grief. Karen takes into consideration the fact that emotions surface as a result of the readings, and may extend a session at her discretion.
Karen will not abruptly end any appointment, and she reserves the right to be thorough and courteous to all of her clients. Be assured, Karen's focus will be on you as soon as your session begins. If your schedule is inflexible by up to 15 minutes, please plan to book when you have some flexibility. Karen has every intention of being respectful of your time and hers. If you are waiting for her call by telephone, or are in her waiting room in her office, please be patient. You will get your session with Karen.
Making an appointment with Karen
If you are making an appointment with Karen, you will be asked for your first and last name as well as a telephone number where you may be reached or where we may leave a text or voicemail that will be checked. You will be asked for a credit card to hold your appointment. If you are a new client, you will be asked if your number is a cell phone. You will be reminded that you need to respond to text messages confirming an in-person appointment. Karen asks for 48-hours notice if you need to reschedule your appointment.
Giving an alias or "fake name" when making an appointment with Karen Hollis shows a lack of trust and integrity, and a disrespect for Karen's gifts. Karen understands that there are people who will be skeptical of her talents, but she draws the line at dishonesty from her clients. If you do this, she will know and you will be asked to leave Karen's office the day of your appointment.
Karen believes that knowledge is power. If you are in a relationship with another person whether it is work or love related you have a right to know where you stand with them so that you can make the best choices for you. However, Karen will not use her psychic ability to manipulate another person! Karen can give you insight into whether that person is a person of character and integrity with regard to their dealings with you and that is as far as she will go. She will not look into their relationships with anyone other than yourself. It is called privacy.
If there is someone with whom you have a relationship either personal or business, and you would like to ask Karen about them, as it relates to you and choices you are trying to make for your highest good, please provide Karen with only a first name and a full date of birth for that person. This is necessary and increases Karen's accuracy.
Mediumship In A Private Session With Karen Hollis:
Please let Karen know at the beginning of your session that you are requesting a mediumship session. Karen asks that you read her Mediumship page before your session so that you can get the best experience.
If you do not let Karen know that you are seeking mediumship, Karen will assume that she needs to focus on your life on the Psychic level. Karen will not bounce between the psychic and the mediumistic levels at will as this can harm her energetically.
Many times the Spirit communicator that comes through first to Karen may not be the person that you were wishing to contact on the "other side." This is why Karen tries to do what she calls "targeted mediumship" in her office. If you are seeking to get a message, please have the first name and the birthdate of the Spirit person that you are hoping to hear from. Small to medium sized pictures are fine to bring along in order to validate the information that Karen is receiving. Please, make sure that you can validate with a yes or a no any evidential information that Karen may give you during your reading. This is necessary and vital to the success of the reading. Evidence from the Spirit People may include some of the following: hobbies they enjoyed, songs they loved, jobs that they did, names of family members in spirit or alive, nicknames they were called by, pets they owned, cars they drove, the deceased person's personality, height, weight, eye color, and/or things that were left in memory of them. Karen does not clairvoyantly "see" dead people around you. She clairsentiently "feels" them in the room and then addresses their need to connect. Questions like: "Where did you put the Will?" are inappropriate and manipulative, and will not be addressed in a mediumship reading with Karen Hollis. Please come ready to experience how the power of love can transcend even death!
Spirit Messages At An Event With Karen Hollis:
At events, Karen reads where Spirit people take her in the crowd and room. Karen will present evidence and then she will place that evidence in the room as time allows. Events are generally two hours long, and evidence is similar to that given in a private reading. Names of relatives that the deceased met on the other side, relationship to the person in the audience, songs they loved, Birthdays or Anniversaries that Spirit wishes to acknowledge, etc.… The quality of the messages can depend upon the crowd size, room configuration, and the love bond between the living and the Spirit people wishing to communicate. Karen admits that she is "not in charge" of the messages at her events. Karen does what she does as her spiritual calling!
What if I cannot make my appointment with Karen Hollis?
Oftn, Karen will use the Tarot to determine what is going on in your life.
We at "Readings By Karen" understand that traffic happens, illness happens, and life happens, but just like in your household, the bills need to be paid at Karen's office. Karen's schedule is set weeks in advance, and people literally can wait up to a month or more to get into Karen's schedule. It is selfish for any one person to hold both your schedule, and Karen's schedule hostage with nonsensical cancellations.
Time wasted is not appreciated by anyone. Karen understands that your time is valuable, and this is why Karen's policies on cancellations are very strict.
- Cancellation With Two Days Notice:
If you cancel with two days' notice, you may re-schedule your appointment.
- Cancellation The Day Before:
If you cancel the day before your session, then plan on either paying for the time you missed, or do not plan to book another appointment with Karen. You will not be allowed to book a reading unless you pay for the time you missed. Credit Card payment is accepted over the phone.
- Cancellation The Same Day:
If you cancel the same day as your session, then plan on either paying for the time you missed, or do not plan to book another appointment with Karen.You will not be allowed to book a reading unless you pay for the time you missed. Credit Card payment is accepted over the phone.
- Cancellation Due To Illness:
If you are sick the day of your appointment, please call us to re-book your appointment. Karen would prefer you to re-book because if she falls ill she will not see clients until she feels well. You expect the best from Karen, and she expects the same from you. If cancellation due to illness becomes a pattern, Karen reserves the right to not have you as her client.
- Confirmation of Appointment:
Karen will not inconvenience you if you are booked in for a consultation in her office. You will be called the day before your session and reminded of your appointment. If your phone does not accept voicemail (not Text messages) then, at Karen's option, she may schedule someone else in for your appointment.
- Your Responsibilities As A New Client:
If you have never had an in-person reading with Karen in her office, it is required that you return our reminder call to confirm that you are, indeed, coming to your session. If you do not confirm as a new client, Karen reserves the right to substitute someone from her waiting list for anyone who has not confirmed. This includes bookings where we cannot leave a voicemail message, (either because voicemail is not set up, or because it is full).
- Existing Clients:
If you have had one or more readings with Karen, you are considered an existing client and you have formed a business relationship with Karen. You will be left a confirmation voicemail the day prior to your appointment. It is not required that you call to confirm your appointment. It is assumed that you understand Karen's policies for cancellation and that you will show up at Karen's office on the day of your appointment, on time. If you do not show up, Karen reserves the right to charge for the appointment that was missed.
- Appointments for Phone Readings both within the United States and Internationally:
Karen reads for clients in other countries as well as for those within the United States, she is an International Psychic/Medium and has been featured on television. For these reasons, it is not practical for us in the business office of "Readings By Karen" to confirm every phone reading appointment.
We do not remind people of a telephone consultation in advance. Here is how it works: If you are within the United States, Karen will initiate the call to you, when you are scheduled for your phone reading. If you are not able to receive the call for a phone consultation, Karen will leave a message and you may re-schedule your appointment. However, you may be charged for the time you missed. If it is a miscommunication, please let Karen know as she is quite reasonable.
- International callers:
If you are calling from another country then you will initiate the call to Karen's business phone, which is 860-665-8024, at the time agreed upon for your appointment. All appointment times are based on the Eastern Time Zone. Please make note of time differences between countries. Karen reserves the right to charge for appointments that are missed due to you not calling at the appointed time.
- Adults Only:
Karen only reads for people over the age of 18. Young adults are very impressionable and Karen is a mom who understands the responsibility of stewarding a child or teen. She will only read for a minor person with a parental consent form signed, in front of her, at the office, and with a parent present at the time of the reading. There are no exceptions to this policy.
Your Consultation is Private
Karen's comfortable waiting room
If you arrive to a consultation with Karen early, understand that you will not be bursting in on someone else's session. Karen has a very comfortable waiting room where you may be seated while you wait. And, if someone else comes in early while you are in Karen's office, they will not be interrupting your session.
If you have a friend or relative with you, they are welcome to wait in Karen's waiting room while your consultation is in progress. The only exception is where a translator or an interpreter is assisting in the reading process; Karen reads for a number of clients who are deaf and a number of clients for whom their English is not sufficient for the accurate consultations she offers. Interpreters and translators are cautioned at the beginning of a consultation to guide Karen back on track if she begins to pick up on the interpreter or translator's energy. It is Karen's foremost desire to be accurate and the presence of another person in a session may decrease her accuracy.
