Is the spiritualism industry regulated? If not, why not?
CAN I ask if the industry of spiritualism is regulated?
Do bona fidi spiritualists (be they mediums, palm readers, tarot readers, sensitives, or whatever the correct terms are), have to register with any governing body to ensure best practice?
Is there just one regulator or more than one?
That people who use these services perceive a need for them is a fact, but is this "service" not open to abuse by rogue practitioners on a power trip?

Is it right for unwanted "readings" to be imposed upon people out of malice, on the streets "at will", without recourse, by these rogue practitioners who simply bare a grudge?
Is there such a thing as malpractice, and what are the rules and checks if any?
And is there a register of authorised/suitably qualified professionals that carry out these services?
After all, people who seek the services of these practitioners are sometimes at really vulnerable times in their lives, and seek solace, or closure, but can be seriously affected by what is conveyed to them. I would be very interested to know if ANY regulation is in place.
And if not, should it be put in place now to protect the vulnerable, and the wider public? I believe that it should.
