I was on a Creative Mediumship course with Martha Totev who was the guide/teacher. All she did was victimise me from week 1, gave everyone a reading except I, and had invaded personal space touching us on our shoulder without consent. Week 3 she had locked me out of the shop and then pretended she had misread a text saying I would be 15mins late and on week 4 she was shouting, swearing, pointing at me and got everyone in the class involved. This abuse went on for 45minutes, telling me not to leave the room! She had also sniggered that I can never be helped. I put the complaint forward to the Branca Gessin who was the manager/owner. She was unhelpful, rude, and has no empathy. After reporting about the abuse via email, she didn’t acknowledge it until I resent it via recorded delivery. When I called up asking if she had seen it, she said she will take legal advice and hung up. I was left no choice but to send another email and recorded delivery letter stating there is nothing spiritual about Martha, she was doing illegal practices, verbal abuse during mediation and I want to hear a response in 14days for compensation. Then the owner was harassing me with constant phone calls and didn’t want to put pen to paper. She got through to me and was talking at me not to me saying she doesn't care that Martha Totev using covert hypnosis without a licence and that she will only offer me half the money. I said put it in writing, and was questioning how dare I ever say for her to put it in writing. Then she was being nasty to me on the phone and told me to sue Martha instead of Mysteries. A couple of hours pass and in the email, she offered me the full refund pretending this was what she had said. Luckily, the phone was recorded which I had stated again to her the second time. She made me sign the without prejudice email under duress and made a dig that Martha Totev acted professional hence couldn't be bothered to investigate. When I saw the owner for the first time, I realised she did have the skill of being polite after all, it was obvious she feared I was recording her. I brought a witness with me and had a notebook and pen. The atmosphere of the shop was horrible and I got my full refund. The course is £200, not worth the money, stay away from Martha Totev, infact stay away from the whole shop! She is a quack psychic medium. Spiritual medium are suppose to do things with love however she will trick you and use it as a weapon and she swears a lot. She dabbles in the dark arts and focuses on fallen angels, I only realised too late.
