Ex-hairdresser Steve Holbrook, regarded by many as one of the UK’s top clairvoyant mediums, visits locally shortly, and he explains how he hears the voices of our loved ones that have passed away.
His ability started from behind the salon chair, and he now visits theatres and hotels around the country, and as far as the Caribbean, demonstrating his unique ability to act as a telephone exchange between this world and the spirit world.
Steve says he was aware from being a child that life existed beyond the grave, when he awoke to find five soldiers marching through his bedroom, but could only see the top half of them floating through the room.
“This was a very unnerving experience but it was to give me an early glimpse of what was to come, and now it’s as natural as breathing to me.”
Steve started work in Leeds in a busy hairdressing salon, and feels the years spent behind the chair, having personal contact with the customers, stimulated this rare, yet natural ability to hear the voices of spirits.
People used to come in for their hair cut, and often got more than they bargained for when he passed on a message from their loved one.
Steve was always the busiest stylist, and had a six-week waiting list.
“I often wonder if they kept coming back for my ability as a stylist, or the possibility they might receive a message from a relative who’d passed away!”
He now gives messages of reassurance to people who have lost their loved ones, and by communicating with them, helps them understand that life continues, just simply in a different dimension.
One lady’s mum came through in one of Steve’s messages, and said to the daughter: “Don’t forget the brown Prada handbag on Friday.”
The lady replied: “I’m putting it in my mum’s coffin on Friday, she only died five days ago”. Who would know this information?
One of Steve’s best friends is Jane MacDonald, singer and co-presenter on ITV’s Loose Women. Steve met Jane in a Spiritualist Church many years ago, and predicted she would be on BBC as part of a cruise entertainment documentary. She didn’t believe it, but the year after it came true, and she was the star of The Cruise, the first docu-soap, and she had the biggest selling debut album of all time.
She has dedicated her auto-biography to Steve, calling him her inspiration and guru, and thanks him for his guidance.
Steve has three books out, ‘Light in the Darkness’, ‘Out of this World’, and ‘Survival’, and these all offer insight into the day-to-day life of a working medium, his beliefs on many areas of Spiritualism, and a look at his life.
Steve has raised tens of thousands of pounds for charities over the years, £50,000 for his local hospice in Wakefield, £5,000 for Macmillan Support, and recently almost £21,000 – and counting – for PACT – a charity that helps terminally ill children and their parents across the country.
Don’t miss this emotional rollercoaster ride of an evening, a night to remember.Steven is at the Premier Inn on Preston’s Bluebell Way (PR2 5PZ).
