My Summary

Fun, friendly fortune teller reading palms and the crystal ball for children of all ages. Lighthearted and always positive, Amelie dresses in full gypsy costume and draws crowds of children and their parents, who are always intrigued to hear her quirky insights and to learn more about themselves and others. ***** CRB Disclosure available upon request. ***** "I know you surprised ALL of the 30 (very hard to please) teenage girls with your accuracy, truth, kindness and insight. In short, we all thought you were AMAZING!!! Anybody that hires you is very lucky indeed - they will not be disappointed! Even my husband who thinks fortune tellers are 'rubbish' and 'for girls' was telling his friends how accurate you were." - Private Birthday Party ***** “Thank you so much for your hard work! The girls absolutely loved it and we found it fascinating. You really helped Amy who is finding life a bit difficult. I can't remember exactly what you said, but I do remember thinking at the time that you couldn't have done more for her if we'd primed you! You were so gentle with them (and the toughness is a front with pretty much all of them) and very intuitive. Tim and I were so pleased to have met you and will, of course, ask you again whenever we are planning something special. You are obviously working in the right area! Thank you again for being so patient with us and providing the highlight of the weekend.” - Private Birthday Party ***** "Amelie was fantastic, she has a great energy about her, she did readings at her table and when it was quiet she got up and walked around and went up to people's tables encouraging them to try her and get involved, she was very popular and very friendly." Private Birthday Party (for a nine year old girl) ***** "You couldn't have been more helpful and professional! I haven't had to organise these sorts of events very often so your help, flexibility and keeness to make it go smoothly (even me changing my booking time by phone message on the day!) was exceptional. Great fun and I wouldn't have a second's doubt to book you again in the future (but perhaps you had already read that in my palms!!)" - Private Hen Party ***** "You just told me word for word what my friend and I have been talking about." - Guest at World Premiere of Andrew Lloyd Webber's Love Never Dies ***** "Many thanks for your wonderful entertainment – and wonderful energy." - Sotheby's Institute of Art ***** "Futurologist, Fortune Teller, Amelie Appleby" - John Pienaar, BBC 5 Live Pienaar's Politics Show
