  • alexandra nicol

    Psychic Medium

    ALEXANDRA NICOL

    Alexandra Nicol is a psychic medium from Glasgow, Scotland. Gifted since childhood in channeling and connecting with spirits, Alexandra uses information from loved ones who have crossed over to help heal. She explores metaphysics as the fundamental nature of being, spanning a time that hovers between the before and after, and a space that both transcends limits and tethers itself to the tangible. Through joy and laughter, Alexandra helps unify the positive polarity of mental space (meta) with the negative polarity of the material world (physical) to bring clarity and healing to those seeking guidance.
