How long a psychic reading will take depends on a variety of factors, including the reader, the questions asked and the type of reading, or rather, the method the reader uses to conduct the psychic reading. On average, however, a genuine reading will take somewhere between 30 minutes and an hour. In most cases, the reader will be able to tell his or her client how long they expect the psychic reading to be at the start of the consultation.

Cost also varies, but in general, it appears that a client can expect to pay around £30 for a psychic reading lasting half an hour. This may seem a lot, but for a good, genuine reading, this is acceptable and will have to be expected for most readings. Very successful, internationally renowned readers may charge substantially higher amounts, but for this, they really do have to be good.

As a rule, a client will be told the price of the reading before he or she decides to go ahead. Vague answers to the question of price should be treated with care. There are some sites which offer readings 'on the clock'. Here, readers are often forced to keep their clients on the phone for longer than required, and free minutes advertised to get people interested are usually taken up very quickly by getting the client's name and other personal details.

These sites often charge as much as £3.99 a minute and, if readers do not keep clients on the phone for at least 20 minutes, a percentage is deducted from their pay, resulting in them doing their best to keep a client as long as possible at all times. Fortunately, this is not a practice found with genuine individuals who are there to help.

Another potential risk to look out for is the offer to remove curses or bad luck, usually at additional cost. No matter how good a psychic reading may seem to begin with, if the reader starts talking about his or her client being cursed and offering to remove the curse at a charge, the reading should be cut short - this is not genuine and is designed to relieve people of one thing only - their hard earned cash.

The same applies to offers to 'open chakras'; statements that the future the psychic reading reveals looks terrible, but they can turn it around for a small additional charge (which usually is not that small at all) or requests to keep coming back to get more information. A reader stating that they alone have special, authentic abilities and are therefore the only person who can help a client should also be treated with great caution.

In short, clients should be advised on how long their psychic reading is expected to last and how much they will be charged for it before the reading commences. If the reader fails to answer questions with regards to these points clearly, caution is advised.
