The salon that takes care of your looks as well as your spir­i­tual side

AS A teenager Yvette Ta­mara used to see and hear things other peo­ple could not.

She soon came to be­lieve she had in­her­ited psy­chic and clair­voy­ance tal­ents from her fa­ther and grand­mother, who were both suc­cess­ful spir­i­tu­al­ists.

Her most pub­li­cised achieve­ment was pre­dict­ing the win­ning lot­tery num­bers for her next door neigh­bour, then of Queen Street, Ash­ford, who won £224,000 in 1995.

The mother-of-two from Maid­stone has ap­peared on the Big Break­fast and Kil­roy, and has toured the coun­try as a clair­voy­ant. She en­ter­tained around 1,000 guests at the Theatre Royal and Opera House in Wake­field just this month.

In 1985, she set up the Bri­tish As­so­ci­a­tion of Pro­fes­sional Clair­voy­ants.

“I saw lots of peo­ple be­ing ripped off and un­eth­i­cal prac­tices. We have to give to help peo­ple, not to hin­der and frighten them.”

Yvette has also been con­tacted by fam­i­lies of mur­der vic­tims who used her to help po­lice with their in­quiries.

“I have done trance medi­umship where a spirit takes over your voice box and talks through you,” she said.

Sad­ness

“Some­times you don’t get some­one through that you would like and I find that quite sad.

“I would like to get more in­volved with solv­ing mur­ders and miss­ing per­sons.”

But her fas­ci­nat­ing life is not with­out sad­ness.

“I had a per­sonal tragedy and lost five mem­bers of my fam­ily within a year, then I went through a di­vorce so I took some time out,” she said.

Now she has re­gained her en­ergy and is onto her next project.

Yvette, who turns 50 next year, has re­cently opened a small hair and beauty salon in Ash­ford called A Cut Above the Rest, tucked away in an old Tu­dor build­ing by the church.

Here Yvette of­fers read­ings to cus­tomers while they wait for their dyes to set in or their nails to dry.

“I have loads and loads of women who have come for read­ings who are try­ing to put their lives back to­gether, where their hus­bands have gone off with a younger wo­man, or they have been through a di­vorce,” she said.

“I want to make sure they can move for­ward in their lives. I found this place and I thought it was per­fect, it has a gir­lie bed­room feel to it and a pri­vacy about it, not a clin­i­cal feel like most hair­dressers.”

Yvette claims any­one can be­come psy­chic, but that women are more in tune with their sixth sense than men.

It’s all about be­liev­ing…
