Ethics, Purpose of Service and Site
It is Sophie King’s (Psychic Sophie’s) goal to help and serve her clients by enacting the highest level of personal and professional integrity and to provide services to her clients, which inspire trust and confidence. Sophie’s clients receive information, perceptions or insights that come through her, so they may evaluate choices and/or make better decisions. Sophie is in no way responsible for the actions or non-actions taken by her clients or others based on their perception or interpretation of this information given. Sophie is a spiritual counselor; not a fortuneteller, nor does she provide fortunetelling. Sophie provides information and spiritual counseling based on knowledge received through her psychic abilities and the use of Tarot cards. This information is delivered arbitrarily in past, present, or future tense and may concern the past, present, and what could be construed as your future, which is ultimately determined by you.
We further reserve the right to record all Service with you conducted in-person, by phone, or via the Internet for internal record-keeping or for Service’s own protection. By communicating with Service, you acknowledge that your communication may be overheard, monitored, or recorded without further notice or warning. If you wish to record your reading, you must inform Sophie King (Psychic Sophie) beforehand. Any recordings you make or those provided to you are for personal and private use. You may not copy, share, edit, rebroadcast, transmit, or use Sophie King’s (Psychic Sophie’s) image or voice in any medium, under any other setting, or for any other purpose.
MP3/Wav files: If you opted to receive a free recorded copy of your reading, a link to it via Dropbox will be sent in a separate email. If you wish to keep a permanent copy for your personal and private use, you must click on the link and download it ASAP, as the link access and file will be permanently deleted within a day or two. We are not responsible for any glitches or non-recordings that may occur. Keeping notes is advised.
All appointments are first come, first served, and all appointments must be made online. No phoned in requests are accepted. Every attempt will be made to provide your psychic reading on your first or second preferred date and time(s).
On rare occasion, Sophie might not be able to do your reading at the time(s) or on the date(s) you chose. If this happens, she will email you to reschedule. If rescheduling isn’t possible, she will provide a refund for your paid reading.
Sophie values her time as much as she does yours. Once your appointment is confirmed, please be on time. A late arrival/connection will cost you in equaled lost time. Sophie is always right-on-time or 2-3 minutes early, not only due to scheduling necessities, but she views this as mutual respect and an honoring of one’s commitments and she expects the same from her clients. There are times when we are all late due to events beyond our control. A timely call or email is expected and appreciated; however, please understand that if Sophie has another client or other events scheduled after your appointment, she cannot give extra time to make up for your lateness.
If you must be in your car during your phone reading, please be safely parked before your reading begins. Otherwise, your reading time will be used up until you are.
Please be in a quiet place without distraction of background or other noise, as it is too disruptive.
In fairness to Sophie’s other clients and their scheduled times, psychic Tarot readings will not go over the scheduled duration. Please choose an appropriate reading duration for your needs.
Sophie works with individuals one-on-one, she does not do couple or group readings. She also does not accept appointments made on behalf of another. Each person must make their own appointment online, completing the form using their information, submitting, and by their own payment.
Readings can often be of a highly personal and private nature. For this reason, Sophie doesn’t recommend that others listen in during your private reading. However, Sophie also doesn’t tell people what they can and cannot do. If you feel safe and comfortable with another person (s) over-hearing your reading, this is entirely your decision to make and responsibility to accept.
Payment for all services is processed through PayPal’s secure system and all major credit cards are accepted. Once PayPal verifies your payment was made successfully, you and Sophie will receive an email indicating as much. Sophie will also send you an email verifying the date/time of your appointment and other information needed, which is your appointment confirmation. She will then see, call, or Skype you on the date/time as indicated in this email. Payments made via e-check will delay your appointment or service request until the check has cleared your bank. If you have any questions beforehand, please contact Sophie.
Payments made via PayPal verifies that you acknowledge receipt of Psychic Sophie’s services provided in-person, via phone, or online.
Cancellations, Changes, Refunds
Send an email to Sophie via the email address provided on your confirmation or via the contact form located on (Site) indicating that you need to change the appointment or cancel it. It must be received by Sophie a minimum of 24-hours prior to your scheduled date/time. Given that emails are sometimes lost or online mishaps occur, make sure that you have received a response (email) from Sophie within the same 24-hour period, which acknowledges your request; otherwise, the full fee is charged and is not refundable.
Sophie has always paid the seller fee associated to your using PayPal; however as of May 2019, PayPal changed how they handle refunds. She no longer receives credit back for the fee paid by her for a refund transaction. As such, your refund will now be less this fee. The amount depends upon the initial charge for services and whether a domestic (USA) or foreign payment (foreign based payment fees are higher). For example, at this writing, an initial domestic (USA) payment of $40.00 will be less $1.46 in refund, $60.00 will be less $2.04, $85.00 will be less $2.77, and $105.00 will be less $3.35.
Sophie will happily issue a full refund (including seller fees) for a confirmed/paid reading that she was unable to provide due to circumstances out of her control. Any other refunds will be less the current fee charged by PayPal.
NO refunds are issued and NO exceptions:
- Once Sophie has provided a reading.
- For a scheduled appointment that you missed. Sophie’s time was set aside just for you, therefore, she was not available to anyone else.
- Changes/cancellations you made without providing a 24-hour advance notice prior to your scheduled date/time.
Sophie values your time as much as she does hers, and does her best to be fair to everyone, herself included. Your understanding is appreciated!
Sophie’s Reading Process
Sophie’s clients have her utmost respect. Sophie is always honest, sometimes brutally so, but she will also be as diplomatic as possible. If you do not want the truth as Sophie sees, feels, or hears it, she kindly suggests you find another spiritual counselor / Tarot reader / psychic.
Sophie will disclose to you exactly what she sees, hears, or feels, and some of this information may be about people or situations of which you do not currently possess conscious knowledge. You may have contacted Sophie with a specific goal in mind, and more often than not, this will appear in your psychic reading session, but not always. She may also pick up information that has peripheral importance, which may (at first) seem unrelated.
Psychics can capture a lot of information in all areas of your life, but this information is essentially, energy. For instance, even though Tarot card spreads breakdown information into past, present or potential future events etc.; Tarot cards and the guidance received from them don’t necessarily adhere to our understanding or principles of time. Additionally, information in and of itself is essentially inert or displays “potential.” It has no concept of time or space and it has no power until acted upon in some way (cause), to which an effect is created.
Neither psychic abilities nor Tarot cards have a concept of time, and both present this Collective Unconscious information or “potential”. Therefore, any divination or revelation made which is then interpreted by a psychic or Tarot card reader is reflective of this Unconscious potential, often expressed or understood within our understanding of time: in past, present, or future tense.
A genuine, legitimate psychic can’t manipulate psychic information or impose order upon it; all we can do is share the information as we receive it, assuming that it has bearing on our life at the moment of receipt, no matter the time frame referenced. We are not magicians so we cannot manipulate or change your life, or make those things you wish for to appear, or get rid of those things you wish would disappear.
It is Sophie’s sincere belief that whatever information she receives is meant for the highest good and is dictated by the Collective Unconscious Mind, the God Source, Energy Source, Higher Self, Spiritual Self, Spirit Guides, or any other nomenclature of similar name/nature.
All of Sophie’s psychic readings incorporate Tarot cards, astrology, clairaudient, and clairvoyant abilities.
The process of reading Tarot cards varies greatly and depends upon each individual and each experience. A Tarot reading can reflect the “story” of one event or relationship or several different events or relationships, which can appear as though they have no connection whatsoever to each other, but in fact, they do.
When a reading reflects several stories, it’s best to view each story as being similar to a jigsaw puzzle piece. Each puzzle piece is crucial to completing the whole puzzle, but when viewed separately, may not seem like it fits or make sense in the moment. However, as you progress through your life experiences and place each puzzle piece, the connection emerges and the bigger picture comes into view. The correlation can be the unfolding or connection to people or events, or a similarity in how each individual processes emotional, spiritual, or logical responses to each person or event.
This same puzzle analogy applies to the relativity of time. Clients have repeatedly said to Sophie that either their entire reading made sense in the moment, or parts in the moment with some parts over time. This “over a period of time” has included minutes after their reading, some within the week, some 2-months later, and some up to 6-months or more―and all of these events, situations, or people were described in the one/same reading.
In this sense, it’s as though you and/or those around you place some pieces in one little area of the puzzle, then move on to another area and place a few pieces there. Eventually (as time passes), these separate little groupings are brought together, thus, once seemingly disjointed or unrelated; become clearer as a part of the whole.
Often, readings may pick-up on events, situations, or people around you too. Bear this in mind if Sophie says ‘you’, because it may refer to ‘it’ or ‘them’, and not you directly. Regardless, the same puzzle analogy applies, because “we” and everything else around us are connected and a part of the All.
Try not to assign what you hear to a particular person, situation, or event in the moment. Instead, take in the information as if you were an objective observer simply recording what you hear. If you lose objectivity, you may assign something to a person or event to which it does not belong, and therefore, not realize or miss that to which it might.
It is always best to keep an open mind to the information as presented. Good, honest, professional, and real psychics do their best to guide you, but don’t forget, they too are being guided in the process. Please have understanding, appreciation, and as much as possible, remain open-minded to the information as it’s presented. This not only presents a far more accurate reading, but one whereby the greatest degree of clarity and understanding can be achieved. Sophie’s belief is that everything happens for a reason. If you receive more information in one area and less in another, it all has a Divine purpose.
Sophie interprets what she sees or feels. By so doing, she isn’t telling people what they should or should not do. She provides information that she hopes will bring clarity and understanding, which will enable one to make their own decisions. Sophie doesn’t believe in or endorse giving away one’s own power to someone else, which opposes creating individual empowerment.
During a Tarot psychic reading, Sophie will reference her spiritual/religious beliefs or perceptions, but under no circumstance is this meant to diminish or show disrespect for you or your own beliefs, whatever they might be, nor is she trying to push her beliefs or perceptions upon you. Sophie simply shares them because they are part of who she is. Sophie believes Tarot cards reflect essential spiritual Truths applicable to every human being, regardless of their beliefs, and the Tarot doesn’t issue judgments of any kind.
