Tarot is a practical tool for accessing clarity during times of challenge, stagnation or transition.

A good tarot reading will leave you feeling centred, a little braver about your fears and clearer around your uncertainties. It will help you to connect with both your roots and your wings, so that you can embrace the things that challenge you to grow, without being knocked off your feet.


I offer in-person readings, in Taunton, UK and online readings via Zoom to anywhere in the world.


I use the tarot as a tool to support people, who come to me for readings on a diverse range of situations, from navigating times of transition, to periods of feeling stuck, and lots of the bits in between.


We all have times when we feel overwhelmed or unclear about our best way forward. Different chapters in our lives bring different challenges, and tarot can provide a safe place for exploring fresh perspectives and examining your options, wherever you find yourself.


About me

To those who have never used a tarot deck or had a reading before, they can seem mysterious, or even intimidating. For me, the cards act as a lens: they are a useful tool for examining our experience from different angles and navigating our way through challenging times. The way that I use them is anything but mysterious and if you come to me for a reading, you’ll find me friendly and approachable. 

My Story

When I first came to the tarot in 2010, it was as an intrigued sceptic; having listened to a friend talk about how useful she found them, I bought a cheap deck, just to make sure that there wasn’t anything in it for me. My very first reading for myself, using a book as a guide, gave me several useful insights which at the time blew my mind. Within days, I was convinced it had been a fluke. This pattern repeated itself multiple times over a couple of years, before I really began to trust the process of reading the cards.

My Approach

I am a self-taught tarot reader, I have been influenced by the books of Yoav Ben-Dov, Joan Bunning, Rachel Pollack and Christiana Gaudet amongst others. I wish Liz Worth’s Going Beyond the Little White Book had been around when I started out, as I recommend it to anyone interested in using the tarot for themselves. My work has also benefitted from the online writings of Theresa Reed, Beth Maiden, Siobhan Rene and Benebell Wen, as well as others. I have been using the tarot for myself for 8 years, studied intensively for 4 years and started reading for friends and strangers 3 years ago.

It’s a privilege to read the cards for people, to bear witness to their vulnerabilities and strengths, and I feel very lucky to be doing this work.


Kind Words

“I have had two readings from Nia on an issue that is important to me. I was sceptical about tarot, and had no idea if it worked or how. I was surprised by how useful and insightful it was - to the point that it influenced an important life decision of mine. Nia makes you feel very comfortable, and listens to and understands what you are saying. And the results she comes out with are fascinating - so fascinating that I will return for more!”
