Hollywood Medium Tyler Henry Shares His Advice On How To Spot A Fraudulent Psychic

Any sort of psychic, but especially television psychics, are constantly accused of being scammers and deceivers- this is no secret.

There is however, a trick that can tell you who is the real deal and who is just trying to take your money, according to Hollywood medium Tyler Henry.

Henry did an interview with Digital Spy and in it he said:

“No one legitimate is going to say something that is going to frighten the person in front of them. That is not the goal of someone that is truly connected to what I believe to be the source.”

“It’s important that you have a validating experience [when going to see a psychic]. The information that comes through for me, comes with the goal of helping the person in front of me. Telling the person something like they are going to die is not helpful unless it can be prevented,” he also said.

“A good way to tell if a psychic is authentic is, if they are going to verbalize these things, it should be with the intention of helping the person,” he added.

Henry has given about 125 readings on camera in his span as a psychic. He says that all five of his senses are involved when he communicates with the other side and that the result is what he considers his sixth sense.

The young psychic told Digital Spy that he never knew he was blessed with psychic gifts until the age of eleven when he foresaw his grandmother passing away. He revealed his premonition to his mom and the phone rang about five minutes after that to advise them that his grandmother had indeed passed away.

“I would say the nature of what I do can be very overwhelming and some things revolve around things that are not positive,” Henry says. “But I cannot allow fear to dictate my readings. If I allowed fear to dictate my life, I would not be productive.”

“Ultimately I look at the long-term goal of communicating messages. Although I’ve seen some traumatic things, delivering messages of comfort and closure allow for a sense of peace.”

Even though Tyler has years of experience under his belt, as well as being trusted for their readings by several very well-known celebrities, Kardashians included, he admits that he still experiences a lot of skepticism.

Jersey Shore star JWoww was on his show called Hollywood Medium with Tyler Henry and during filming, she tried to “catch him lying” by giving him an object and lying to him about it having belonged to someone that had passed away who was very close to her.

“That was quite an experience- she came to me as a complete non-believer,” Tyler says while laughing. “But when the person came through, [I knew] he wasn’t connected to her and I acknowledged that in the reading. I said, ‘He isn’t here for you’. You’ll have to watch the show to see what happened next!”

“She admitted afterwards that she had tried to trick me. I don’t love it when that kind of thing happens but I understand there are people who take that mentality. I like to give people life-changing experiences and turn skeptics into believers.”

Tyler fully embraced his psychic abilities at the young age of 16 and began giving readings from then on. He admits that he has come across several scamming psychics in his field and states that they make it harder for people like him, who have an authentic gift.

“This is why I put such an emphasis on validation and make sure people have experiences where they can validate the information coming through, my goal in doing my show is to redefine what a medium is.”

  1. Hello Angela
    I suppose it was a coincidence but I was looking at your site due to my receiving so many offers from Psycic’s and stopped to get my mail. The first envelope I opened said “private enclosure” and was from none other than an Angela Moore Psycic from New Hope Emporium. Just had to relay that to you!
    Also, your site is informative and I’m glad I found it! What my life has become over the course of the last 7+ Years is nothing short if a nightmare. As I have my good days when I don’t give up for the umpteenth time I intend to take your advise when continuing my search for someone who will truly help me.
    Maybe opening this letter was a good sign..
    Be well

    • Hi Donna,

      I’m glad that you found my site! I am NOT Angela Moore from New Hope Emporium however. She and I just happen to have the same name, but I’m so glad it led you to my site instead of hers! Best Wishes Donna!

    Hello there, my name is Jennifer Dalla Rosa and I was born with the gift as well. At the age of 9 there was 3 times that my mom’s phone rang late in the evening, calls that were from family about tragedy’s. I was awoken in my room just 5 minutes prior to the phone ringing. Each time I woke up and saw a huge red circle on my wall. I would wake up my mom, and tell her that the phone was about to ring, and I told her each time what it was going to be about! Since then I have had so many other things like that happens to me, not only being awoken by aura’s yet so many visions and I have been correct with most all things that I either see happening either if it is in aura’s and in another dimension, or just a feeling throughout my body. I have been thinking about using my gifts, which have also included healing without touching the person that I pull the pain from. I have been able to do long distance healing, and have actually been able to pull pain from several people that I have been able to get testimonies from. A few have included pulling pain from a young girl that had just stubbed her toe very badly. I took her into the garage and her mother looked at me and said do what you can I’ve seen you heal. I used my energies and removed the broken skin the redness which by the way was about to bleed. Within two minutes her toe looked as if it had gone back to a normal state prior to her stubbing it. I have also stated to take before and after pictures of a few people that I have been able to pull bruises from, as well as rug burns. I have no fear of the gifts that I have been blessed with and never question my abilities. I come from a long line of gifted wemon on my mom’s side, as well as many people from my dad’s side. I would very much love to find a group of others in my area to work with. I also have thought many times about doing this with clients via our website as yours either working with patients that are requesting certain things that are ailing them, and connecting using my Spirit guides to give them advice. Any idea about how I can go forward with using my gifts via a website or chat such as you have. Please advise, thank you so much light and love, Jennifer Dalla Rosa, born Jennifer Judd.
