About Me


My name is Ripley.

In 2011 I was attending a course at the Arthur Findley College of Psychic and Spiritual Research, and heard a statement that has shaped my life, every day, since. It hit me like a bolt from the blue, and I knew I had to make changes to my life. Soon after, I lost half my body weight and over the next few years, developed a deep curiosity of spirituality and how I could live my best life.

‘We don’t live in this world as it is, we live in this world as we are.’

This amazing realisation has driven me to help everyone around me open their eyes to the fact that they’re in control of their lives more than they know, and that we can shape those lives to be abundant in so many ways- in what we have, in the people we love and in the way we see ourselves and the world around us.

Last year, my life took an amazing turn and changed beyond belief. It brought me the love of my life and the opportunity to follow my lifelong dream to work full time with Spirit. When I was 19 years old, I visited a spiritualist church for the first time an knew this was a path I’d take. I also knew I was way too young and needed to live a life before I could offer service. I said I’d come back to it when I was 50, and here I am. (I know that’s hard to believe because I look like a slip of a girl!)

In the years in between, I started my journey with mediumship; trained with the SNU (Spiritualist National Union) and went on to teach there myself. I attended Arthur Findley twice as a residential student and successfully ran the open circle within my church for years.

More recently, my spiritual journey became more focused and varied. I’ve journeyed with Ayahuasca and other plant medicine. I’ve studied with Jasmine Ivy and Christina Lopes through the most transformative programs and gone deeper than I ever thought was possible.

My professional background is as a training consultant and coach, both of these skills are strongly present in my readings and I have a unique method of mixing clairvoyance, being steered by my (and your) guide and real-world coaching to help you through your current situation, or shine light on the steps you could take to live your best life.

Helping people to gain a meaningful and lifelong connection with the Spirit World is the aim of Smokey Quartz, the name I've given to my business. Both with development courses, coaching and readings, to guide you to your own connection. Being able to mix clairvoyance and coaching gives a real feel-good, useful reading that leaves you feeling uplifted in many ways.

The readings and coaching I offer are led by Spirit and a professional background in coaching. I use various, beautiful card decks that speak to me. These help me to offer you a range of insight, both about your life and to offer evidence that your loved ones are around you and supporting you. I have a strong leaning towards guidance and moving forward in your life positively, as this is the purpose of a meaningful reading.

The coaching service I offer is to help those who are approaching a stage in their life where they know there is more than the bricks and mortar, we see around us. If you’re drawn to go deeper into what ‘life’ actually means, and how to make huge strides in your life, I can help.

I’m a real person and won’t be blinding you with jargon. I use humor and I’m very much in the real world.

My flagship course ‘The Link’ offers a breath of fresh air when learning all about how to connect with the Spirit World. The problem we so often find with spiritual learning is the amount of jargon and abstract ideas, that leave us feeling confused. In The Link, you’ll find easy to understand, real life language, examples and methods, that will take the mystery out of tapping into your own potential to communicate with your loved ones and guides. Who doesn’t need some extra support in their lives? Not only in making decisions and what to do next, but also the really simple things. You’ll be amazed how often you’ll find a parking space, once you know who and how to ask! 

I also now offer a fab little workshop that teaches you my method for reading any cards using intuition, rather than the book. Reading From The Heart is a three hour online workshop, that's had amazing feedback from everyone.

Ripley is amazing. She’s done many readings for me over the years and manages to make me feel incredibly inspired and intrigued but in a way that’s comfortable and down to earth. And it’s always spot on.
I’ve seen a few spiritual people/mediums etc over the years and often they’re a bit generic or fluffy. Ripley makes it real and approachable and I don’t come away with that “I’m not sure what happened there” feeling ever. I absolutely trust her and always know I’m in good hands.


This divine woman is ABSOLUTELY incredible.
I cannot recommend her highly enough and for me, that's a VERY rare thing.
I’m super careful who I let into my energy and highly cynical of so many folks!!
Ripley is incredible, magical, connected, restorative, hugely talented and a completely divine being
We have encountered some incredible healings and insights in our work together.
So, if you are ‘searching’ - look no further


Hey All!

I just had an AMAZING reading with


from Smokey Quartz Readings.

Karen is really good at communicating the reading but most of all she can really help with tangible actions to take. She is also a coach which is a massive bonus! It's a really grounded experience, with the woo woo stuff but in a really relatable way.

I got major reassurance that I'm where I need to be, to continue to TRUST my intuition and to continue focusing on releasing and expanding in to self love and a deep rooted grounded-ness which I am very much focused on right now.

It's not a reading where you will be told "this will happen" although it does include past, present and future, it's more of a support to where you are at, where you are going and how to follow the journey in a more graceful and easeful way.

Karen is a gifted intuitive & coach. As you know I am super cautious about who I connect with and who I recommend. I value realness, depth and safety. I felt a real connection to Karen.

Wanted to share in case anyone else is looking for reassurance, guidance, answers etc.

Before your reading

If your reading is being held over Zoom, you’ll need to have this installed on your phone or tablet etc. I’ll need to be able to see you to offer the best reading. It’s worth having a practice to make sure you know how to join a meeting, so it doesn’t eat into our time together. I’ll send you a link that you just need to click on and give you instructions. If I can use it, anyone can.
Feel free to record the reading on your phone, or in many cases, I can allow you permission to record directly into Zoom.
Payments need to be made at the time of booking, so please put that through immediately. I’ll send you bank transfer details.
