How To Make An Appointment With 'Hollywood Medium' Tyler Henry, Even If You're Not A Celebrity
It seems that every few years, there is a desire for mediums in the television industry — from John Edward to Theresa Caputo. The newest medium on TV is E!'s Hollywood Medium with Tyler Henry, and while he spent Season 1 channeling the afterlife for celebrities, can anyone make an appointment with Tyler Henry? The young, soft-spoken clairvoyant has given hope and closure to celebrities like Monica Potter, Margaret Cho, Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi, Boy George, Amber Rose, and Ross Matthews in the first season of his E! show. Yet, non-celebrity fans of Henry's on social media have made it clear that they want a chance to connect with their dead loved ones too. And luckily, there are opportunities to have Henry do a reading for you, even if you will have to wait a very long time to meet with him.
On Henry's website, you can fill out the private reading form, but there is a warning that due to him filming Hollywood Medium, "it may take a while to get back to you." (Celebrities get to bypass this form — regardless if they want to appear on Hollywood Medium or not — by emailing their "entertainment industry inquiries" directly to a publicist for Henry.) While the form submission on his website does not sound too hopeful, don't fret just yet. Henry's giving personality extends beyond his TV show and there are other ways you may be able to connect with the medium.
Henry told Channel Guide Magazine back in February that his online submissions "currently have a waiting list, about six months, that we're working with, but I definitely am looking forward to new clients, so I'm open to it." I can only imagine that as his first season on TV wrapped up, that the six-month waiting list has gotten even longer, but fans can find solace that he is "open" to taking on more clients.
Openness is a common theme when it comes to Hollywood Medium with Tyler Henry. Even when he has celebrities on the show who are skeptical, like Tom Arnold was, Henry mentions he appreciates if they are open-minded and receptive to what he has to say. (While I personally have no idea what I believe in when it comes to mediums and Henry in particular, I do agree with his idea of being open and can watch and enjoy the show from that standpoint.) So it's not surprising then that Henry lives by this "open" approach to life and has tried to offer fans other opportunities to get readings from him.
If you follow the 20-year-old medium on Facebook, Henry has offered free readings on his social media page. While this is more the exception than the rule, I'm sure these online "contests" (for lack of a better word) do provide a glimmer of hope to people who are seeking to speak with Henry. He ran one of these sweepstakes back in February that has already ended, but his most current offer is based on his Facebook page and has already reached 100,000 likes.
As he writes in the above post, if you like his page and share the post, you'll be entered to win a free reading with Henry via Skype. This is not only great publicity for him, but it gives people another chance to connect with Henry. While it's not as intimate as a face-to-face medium session, it's still a personal reading with TV's hottest medium. The winner will be chosen by April 25 and there are already over 22,000 shares of the post.
Of course, if you really want to connect with the deceased and aren't in the Los Angeles area, you could try to find a medium geographically closer to you. However, I understand the allure of wanting to meet with Henry who seems to put everyone at ease with his gentle presence. He'll be connecting with more celebrities since his Hollywood Medium has been renewed for a Season 2, so while you wait for your own chance to meet with him, you can continue to watch him on E!. Unfortunately, I have a feeling that rather than filling out his online form, you'd end up getting an appointment quicker with him if you changed up your strategy and became famous instead. That's gotta be pretty easy, right?
