Ellen Tadd

Clairvoyant Counselor, Author, Educator

Ellen Tadd is an internationally known clairvoyant counselor, educator, and author who has been teaching and counseling for more than forty years. She is widely respected for the integrity of her work, the accuracy of her perceptions and guidance, and the clarity and usefulness of her teaching. Shortly after completing her freshman year in college, Ellen had a remarkable experience in which she was able to contact her deceased mother. Her mother’s presence and message healed Ellen’s childhood trauma of denying her clairvoyant and clairaudient gifts and transformed her view of the world. Very soon after this awakening, she began to have contact with guides and teachers from spiritual realms who provided her with an extraordinary education. Tadd is the author of four books: A Framework for Wise Education, The Infinite View, The Wisdom of the Chakras, and Death and Letting Go-which appeared on the Boston Globe bestseller list.
