I.S.M Accreditation 

Importance of Validation and Recognition

In today's society of rules and regulations it is imperative that one has validation in whatever subject. With Mediumship and the Spiritual environment, it is very important for you are dealing with the public at large, their human aspect as well as their spiritual. By having an accreditation with the ISM, a professional organization, it brings peace of mind to the public and clients, knowing they have approached a professional within the field of Spiritualism. 

Accreditation / validation is a necessity, for the public who seek professional mediums, for mediums who wish to attain and remain at the highest levels of standards within mediumship. Validation by a reputable establishment such as the ISM ensures the public that you are a medium who has been assessed fully and received recognition by your peers, current practicing Mediums.

It assures the public that you have received an in-depth education and have a full understanding of Spirit. The ISM was founded in 1956 and has long been established, and still is as a highly regarded organisation for developing mediums, with their workshops, home circle, fledgling assessments and that of a regulated process of becoming a RAM (Registered Approved Medium).


The ISM holds assessment meetings three times a year, which are usually held in the months of March, June and September.

Our next assessment dates are:

March 6th 2024

June 5th 2024

September 18th 2024 


Applications can be made via email to Doreen Winder, President, at the email address below:

All are welcome to support the mediums of tomorrow. Please come and be a supportive, sympathetic audience for these workers to encourage them to become better mediums. If you wish to take part, are able to use your gifts for a talk or a demonstration of Spirit Communication for about 15 minutes, or if you would like further details, then don't hesitate to get in touch with the RAM Registrar.

Any circle leader, who is considering a sitter has reached the stage where he or she may benefit from exposure to platform experience, and an assessment of their work in public, by an experienced panel.

On each occasion, a summary of the panelists' assessment will be forwarded to the aspiring mediums, hoping that it will be accepted as helpful advice towards becoming mediums of the highest possible standard. The Institute presents its Probationary Certificate to those workers who attain a sufficiently high standard.
