If you're considering having a clairvoyant reading it could be for any one of a number of reasons. Perhaps you have some worries about your future and want to seek a spiritual perspective on things, maybe you have lost a loved one and want to try and reconnect with them, or it could just be that you are curious and want to see what a clairvoyant will say about you. Some people visit clairvoyants for a laugh and with friends, others go for more personal and serious reasons.
Clairvoyants are people who are able to use senses other than the main five to 'read' a person, place, object or even an event, and gain more information about it. Clairvoyants use their extra sensory perception to do this, which is something innate in many of us but which clairvoyants have spent time honing, improving and perfecting. Unlike a medium, a clairvoyant may not be soley concerned with contacting the spirit world, if at all, and so if this is your prime reason for looking into clairvoyant readings, a medium reading might be more suited to your needs. However, many psychics, clairvoyants and mediums offer a range of services and have several skills and abilities, so it's simply a case of finding out what they can offer you.
Once you have found a psychic or clairvoyant, talking to them about what you need and hope to get out of the experince should be the very first step in the process. Any good and reputable clairvoyant should not give you cast iron guarantees about what they can do for you, but should explain the process clearly so that you know what to expect. Giving a satisfying reading will depend on many different factors, and sometimes it can take some time for the clairvoyant to access the information they need in order to give you feedback. Having a list of questions or topics in mind or even written down when you go to see your chosen clairvoyant can often be very helpful to the process
