My name is Amanda Linette Meder.
I'm a professionally practicing psychic medium. And welcome, to my website.
I teach other mediums how to move from natural sensitive with gifts to professional practice with clients.
Because of this, I receive a lot of requests for medium referrals.
And while I can’t give personal referrals anymore, simply because it wouldn’t be fair to appear biased or appear to play favoritism among all of the mediums I have taught - here is a guide to help you choose your own medium.
The truth is, choosing a medium is like choosing your therapist or like choosing a new hairdresser.
It can take a few tries to find your gal or guy, paying for a few haircuts before you get the one you really want.
Here are a few tips to align you with that practitioner of your dreams faster:
How to Choose Your Psychic Medium
choose a Speciality
I like to say that psychic mediums are like home repair guys.
Some guys work on the pools, others work on the cabinets.
The key to getting the reading you want is knowing what you need from the reading.
In other words, you wouldn't hire a cabinet guy to fix a pool pump.
Just like when it comes to choosing therapists, house repair guys, or even doctors, most mediums specialize in working to heal certain areas, with certain people, dealing with certain issues.
A medium’s chosen speciality has to do with their received training, their own personal preferences and interests in the field, and how their natural gifts work.
Some mediums specialize in working with grieving parents, some with husband-wife connections, some specialize in relationship/family healing, and others specialize in only communicating with Angels.
Identify which area in the field your medium focuses on with what you're looking for, and you’ll get a better match for what you need.
A medium is a person who also serves as a conduit for you to receive a message from the Other side. The way a messages is delivered varies from medium to medium and the way you receive message varies depending on how you feel about it.
If a joking, light hearted medium would rub you the wrong way, when trying to bring through you dad, choose a more serious, motherly looking medium instead.
Try to get a feel for a medium’s personality before booking a session. Visit their website, check out their Instagram, go to their Facebook page. Chances are, if you actually like the person behind the medium, you’ll like the session they provide you.
Spirits They Work With
If you want to connect with a specific deceased loved one, try not to go to a medium who specializes in working with only Spirit Guides. For example, deceased people seem to love to come through in my sessions. Angels? Nah, not so much.
While I tend to have an affinity for the DPs (deceased people), not every medium is a deceased people medium.
Learn who your medium naturally connects with (this should be clear on their website) prior to booking your session and there will be a much better chance you’ll get to talk to the person you're hoping to.
Reading Types Offered
If a medium offers Spiritual Coaching on their website and the marketing is geared towards other intuitive professionals who want to develop their business, don’t book them with the expectation your mother is going to come through.
Make sure their available reading types match what type of connection you're looking for. If it's not on their website, they don't have it available.
When looking for a psychic medium, most people would like to find someone in your area, but let me tell you something:
Most mediums will collectively agree that telephone readings are just as accurate, if not MORE, than live readings. The reason being is that on a telephone line they can focus more on the energy of the Spirits present and less on the client’s energy, making for a clearer read all around.
Give this fact, due to modern technologies, location doesn’t matter in terms of accuracy or who you are limited to working with.
Consider a telephone reading and get the reading of your dreams from any medium in the world.

Price is listed last here because it should be the absolute last thing considered when choosing a medium, but there is one simple rule you need to follow:
Do not choose a medium out of your price range. There are mediums available at every price point. However, you'll want to keep these things in mind when searching:
1. The average price of a mediumship reading in the United States is $185 USD.
2. Readings are pricing dependent on:
- Market rate and demand in their area
- Overall training level, skill, experience and demand
- Length of practice, professional training received and level of experience
- Limitations placed by the medium's religion, family, and their culture
- How much value the medium places on the worth of their gifts
- And so on
3. Do not book a medium for a price you’ll feel sorry about later.
Mediumship readings are non-refundable once the service is provided. So, make sure you are comfortable with the price.
In any event, mediums are service professionals and are paid via an hourly rate, much like you would pay a therapist, a lawyer or a life coach. They are worth the price.
To make sure you receive what you are looking for, it’s important that you choose the medium who is going to do the best job for you. Evaluate their personality, their style, their speciality and what they offer - and then make your choice.
And finally, remember that getting a good reading is about you, too
Any connection with a medium is a three way link between You, THE MEDIUM & the Spirits. Getting a quality reading is only one-third related to the quality of the medium you choose.
You improve your chances of getting the best reading possible yourself.
Meditating before your session, limiting the amount of information you share with your medium ahead of time, and keeping quiet during the session itself. For more tips on getting a better, read this book: How to Get a Good Reading with a Psychic Medium
If a medium does not have readings for public sale on their website, chances are, you won’t be able to book a session, so, make sure to choose 2-3 and go down the list.
Here are two directories to help you get started in choosing your medium:
- A Listing of Psychic Mediums in the Greater Philadelphia Area
- Psychic Medium & Spiritual Healer Intuitive Practitioner Directory
Enjoy your reading.
