Sally Morgan is a British television personality, author, and self-proclaimed psychic. She has become known for several shows which she has starred in as well as radio shows and other appearances. She has also done work for a wide variety of celebrities and even royalty. Her abilities, as she has said, manifested themselves when she was very young. She recounts having her first psychic experience at the age of nine months. She says she saw her first ghost at the age of four. She has had a career as a medium for a very long time, and has claimed that she has helped many people. Her message to her clients and others is that she want to help bring closure and content to as many people as possible. There have been many controversies about, however, regarding her psychic abilities and whether or not she uses a method known as cold reading as well as using information gained from assistants that is then fed to her.
She starred in the program Sally Morgan: Star Psychic as well as The Psychic Life of Sally Morgan. She has also starred in the show Psychic Sally: On the Road. Her shows have garnered a wide audience, but many people are skeptical as to her actual ability. She has also authored a number of books about her life and about being a psychic medium. The books she has written are Medium at Large (2006), My Psychic Life (2009), Healing Spirits: How the Other Side can help your grieving heart (2009), and Life After Death: Messages of Love from the Other Side (2011).
The controversies involving her have to do with how she approaches giving people advice and the actual methods she uses to predict certain things and ascertain certain details about a person’s life. In September 2011 she was accused of receiving information from an off-stage assistant and repeating the information shortly after in her reading. In another instance she was accused of doing the same thing, with the difference that a person was reading information to her which received through a headset, speaking the information back no more than ten seconds later. In another incident there was a couple who fed Morgan false information and she read the information back. She described a man dying in a plane explosion. The information turned out to be a fictional character who died in the show Doomwatch.
