British Astrological and Psychic Society (BAPS)

Founded in 1976 by Russell Grant, BAPS has been the leading organisation bringing together professionals working as Astrologers, Psychics, Mediums, Palmists, Card Readers and other esoteric disciplines. BAPS continues to be a resource to the Media and the public for reliable readers and information regarding the esoteric world.

The Society set out to define to the public what is to be expected from a genuine competent professional reader in each discipline and introduced peer vetting to ensure that all its professional members are capable of providing high quality readings to the public.

Membership is open to those with an interest in esoteric subjects as well as practising professionals.

BAPS Consultants enjoy an excellent reputation for their skills; they abide by a Code of Ethics and Conduct, have insurance and are accountable for their work.

DISTANCE LEARNING COURSES were set up in the 1990s for those wishing to expand their knowledge as well as potentially become quality professionals. BAPS courses allow students to study at their own pace with the support of an assigned Tutor who is also a Consultant member of BAPS.

Level 1 and Level 2 courses in Astrology, Intuitive Cards, Tarot, Runes, Crystal Divination, Numerology and Palmistry are currently on offer. Level 1 courses aim to give the student an understanding of the subject and begin to build basic skills in the discipline. Level 2 courses give the student an in-depth knowledge and practice of the discipline, leading to the potential of professional level recognition and vetting as a BAPS Consultant.
