Testimonials

I’m grateful for every opportunity to connect those in spirit with their loved ones, and thankful to all the clients & students who share their experiences. Nearly every connection brings about healing, and when your story is shared, you encourage others to reach out for their own opportunity for healing. What could be more loving than that?

Carol is one of the most talented people I know.  She has not only helped me connect with loved ones, but also for several of my friends and family. Her loving approach has been instrumental in personal healing and growth. What Carol can do is incredible, but more important is her approach. She takes time to explain the process, how her gift works and what you can expect. From there it's up to our loved ones. :). Thank you Carol for the many wonderful connections you have facilitated for my family!

When I lost my father to suicide in 1999, it was the most devastating event of my life. There were so many unanswered questions and so many unresolved issues. Worse, this person that I was so close with was gone forever and I would never be able to talk to him again. For 17 years, I have longed for some way to reconnect with him-to know he was okay-and at peace. A friend took me to Messages from Heaven in Charleston in the spring of 2016. I didn’t really believe my Dad would come through. Within two minutes of Carol taking the stage she made contact with “a very loud man who stepped forward and saluted”. I knew without a doubt that was MY Dad. She went on to provide the names of my husband and my daughter and gave messages and details that could have only come from him. I don’t think I have ever cried so hard. My tears were not from grief-but from immeasurable joy. One month later, my friend was having a private reading with Carol and my Dad came through again! This time, he gave Carol my exact birthday May 2, the name of my daughter and husband, the name of my business and went on to communicate messages that only he would know I needed to hear. I have felt so much happier knowing that I have a way to connect with my Dad. I feel an amazing sense of closure and peace that I have not had since the day he left us. I can not thank Carol enough for sharing her gift with others. I don’t understand how it all works but I know that it does and for that, I am very grateful.

Mind blowing accuracy, incredibly amazing...but above all else HEALING. These three beautiful souls bring messages, validation, and love from people we thought we have lost, and comfort in knowing that, in fact, our loved ones are amongst us, haven't missed one moment, and watch over us every day. This experience changed my life, and I am forever grateful for showing up for this. Whether you are in pain, grieving, or just curious, it's definitely something you don't want to miss.

Carol is not only a gifted evidential medium, she’s also an incredible and patient teacher of intuitive studies. She continues to teach me how to develop my communication with spirit - as well as the art of connecting with my own spirit. She is a healer in every sense of the word and I’m grateful for her guidance.

Working with Carol has been the greatest gift I've given myself.  Her knowledge and mediumship skills are nothing short of awe-inspiring, and she has lovingly (and patiently!) mentored me to a level I never imagined I could achieve.  We are so fortunate she is in Charleston.  Many people have to travel the globe to work with a medium of her caliber!

Andrea St. Amand

I had the privilege of “studying” under Carol. I searched for a long time to find “the right fit” for me. Carol is everything I could ask for in a teacher and a medium. I took her 4 week “Introduction to Mediumship” and found a whole new group of good friends along the path. We all bonded along the way, and Carol was the perfect mentor for our journey. Not only was she excellent teaching us, she made it so much fun. A lot of hands-on exercises, as well. I have learned so much, but still have so far to go in my goal. believe she can get me there. Thank you, Carol.

Cindy Thompson

I had the privilege to take Carol’s first Introduction to Mediumship class. It was amazing. Carol is so much more than just “the teacher”; she is such a wonderful person and mentor. Carol creates a space where you feel safe to learn and develop your gifts. Carol encourages, listens and helps you build the confidence to believe in yourself. I highly recommend Carol – whether you take her classes or go for a reading. She is an amazing, caring and very gifted medium and friend.

Carol has done intuitive readings for me, as well as communicated with dead relatives. I never thought of myself as the type of person who would really believe in these amazing abilities, as an emergency physician who has always been pretty scientific minded. Carol definitely has opened my mind and made me a complete believer. Carol is a beautiful, amazing gifted individual. I have always felt overjoyed and at great peace each time we have had a session. I would highly recommend Carol to anyone wishing to connect with those that have gone on or just for a little direction in life. I will cherish all of my amazing experiences with Carol, which are just too many to try to list.

Carol has a true gift. I came to her when I was still raw and grieving for a dear friend who passed away. She was able to connect with him, allowing me the comfort, peace and validation that he was safe and at peace. I have also had the opportunity to witness Carol practice physical mediumship where she was able to embody the spirit of a deceased loved one. It was one of the most amazing, healing and truly inspiring experiences I have yet to experience. Carol’s messages are only of love, and are always of the most pure intent exemplifying her grace and compassion. I highly recommend her services.

Carol Cottrell’s amazing abilities have helped me through many events in my life. I’ve seen many mediums in the past, but Carol was the only one who could truly tap into those I needed to talk with. She’s a compassionate soul who has been there to guide me through life changes such as career changes, family concerns and much more. She’s been a blessing to me. The universe brought us together for a reason and I’m so thankful for that.

My sister and I had the privilege to get a reading from Carol. She is not only an excellent medium, but she is truly a remarkably gifted spiritual person and this comes through in her work. She made us feel very comfortable. Her caring and calm personality was so peaceful and relaxing. We had no idea what to expect from the experience and it was truly breathtaking! We got numerous validations which weren’t just generalizations or guesses. No leading questions were asked of us, only answers and facts. Thank you for sharing your incredible gift with us! Without a doubt, it was an evening we won’t forget anytime soon!

Working with Carol has been one of my greatest joys over the last few years. I was connected to her originally by a mutual friend during a year filled with loss, tragedy & grief in my life.  I was skeptical of mediumship, although I had had my own experiences over the years that I couldn’t explain.  My rational mind and Catholic upbringing had me discredit and fear that which I could not explain.  I was, however, open, curious, & grieving and through Carol and her connection to Spirit was able to gain a tremendous amount of comfort & peace surrounding those I had lost.  I believe, without a shadow of a doubt  after working with Carol, that our loved ones are always with us even if they are no longer in physical form.

I have since worked with Carol as a student through her classes & private mentorship and have been truly touched and in awe of my experience.  Carol knows what it means to experience the “unknown” and for many individuals who have intuitive abilities but are doubtful or afraid of embracing these abilities, she is a Godsend— nurturing & supporting a discovery of vision, insight, and knowing that cannot always be explained by science.

Carol is an amazing teacher, guide, & healer and I would highly recommend experiencing her work and loving presence in some way, whether through a group event, 1:1 reading or one of her classes.

I delayed taking a mediumship class until I found a teacher I felt that I could trust. That teacher is Carol. She is loving and sensitive while being grounded, very experienced and highly disciplined, all of which give her teachings and readings accuracy and effectiveness. She jam packed each night with information, laughter and hands-on experiences. She provided a warm environment where everyone could share concerns and insecurities. We now have a group of friends for life and undying respect for Carol and her work.

Andrea St. Amand

This was my first visit with a medium and I couldn't have been more impressed and happy with my experience. I did extensive research to find someone genuine and I was not disappointed. Ms. Cottrell was such a delight and explained her process well. I appreciated the suggestion to take notes, as my recorded session later got deleted. I was careful not to reveal any information and I was fully aware of the minimal if any revealing google information. The spirit that I hoped to connect with came through. I was able to confirm information as it came through. She described specific appearance, details, and dates that was not public knowledge and otherwise couldn't have known. I am so grateful to have such an incredible gift shared with me. Information may come through that won't make sense. Trust me, it just might later. My spirit showed her a belt buckle and I had no clue what significance that had. A close family member immediately broke down as I was telling her about this. I was reminded of the significance and it left us in awe. I would definitely do this again. Thank you for giving me the peace I needed.

One of the most spectacular hours in my life!!! So happy I went to her!

Elizabeth Holmes

I saw Carol today for my very first medium experience. I had all my hope into talking to my husband who recently passed. I was in awe of her. she was just about as spot on as they come. She is genuinely sweet hearted, calm, understanding, and extremely reassuring. There is a whole ton I want to explore more and I will absolutely be scheduling again soon. I absolutely recommend her. She also explained the difference of things to me as well as how she perceives the word, meaning sight, smell, feelings etc. Carol is truly truly amazing.

Amanda Mast Darnell

I found Carol's information on line and booked a session for me and my Mom. We could not have been more pleased with our session! It was incredible and I would highly recommend her. My Mom is beyond grateful for what we experienced. Carol is great!

Melissa Aleixo Moss

Carol is amazing. Yes, she absolutely is the real deal. But what she does is so far beyond just giving message, she is a teacher and helper at heart. After having a reading with her I felt I had to know more and took one of her classes. I would put myself in the not gifted category but with her skills as a teacher it is clear we all have these gifts but just don't know how to connect to them. Go, get a reading, take that class, don't think about it just do it!

Kate Trotter

Carol saved me. That’s how I felt after she had left my home. You see, my beloved dog passed away after 16 years. After she passed away I was an empty shell that cried everyday and worried I held on to her too long. Then Carol happened. I was so nervous because I had never done anything like this, but quickly felt at ease as soon as she sat down with me. Carol has such a calm within her that it radiates and affects you immediately. I knew something special was about to happen. She connected with Ali, my dog, and we were able to communicate in a way I never thought possible. We laughed. We cried. But most importantly I knew my girl was ok and in an amazing place.

Carol was able to put my heart and mind my at ease with the things she told me that Ali was saying. And those things were amazing because only Ali and I knew them. I truly cannot say enough things about how incredible my experience was with Carol. She has a true gift. And she has been a gift in my life that I will treasure always. That night, after she left, I slept. I didn’t lie awake, crying, wondering or rethinking every single thing. I told my baby girl I loved her and finally got my calm back.

“Carol connected me with my Grandfather. She not only told me his name and favorite hobbies, she even mentioned the car my Grandmother just bought! Carol is amazing and you would be missing out if you didn’t get a reading with her!”
