About me


Hello! My name is Monique Bradshaw, founder of New Peace Within. I started NPW because I wanted to share with others what I had found for myself, through spiritual communication. Through spiritual support, I have found peace of mind, guidance on goals and the comfort of knowing I am never alone on my journey.

I was raised Roman Catholic until I was 12. By 16, I didn’t relate to any one religion but continued to believe in a Higher Power. Throughout these early years, I had several paranormal experiences that I was told to ignore or where “the Devil”. So I prayed for help. After opening up to a friend, who had similar experiences, I found out there was a name for people like me…sensitives.

My formal mediumship training began in 2011, with an authentic grounded mentor and psychic medium, Lee Van Zyl, the founder of The Montclair Metaphysical Center in Rutherford, NJ. To this day, I continue to work with Lee teaching NPW classes at her psychic school. I studied Trance-Physical Mediumship in 2014, with Lee’s mentor from Australia, Audrey Willey, founder of Woodlands Sanctuary Foundation. In 2015, I had the amazing opportunity to visit the prestigious Arthur Findlay College in Essex, UK, to study experiential Trance Mediumship under the leadership of Eileen Davies. In 2016, I completed a one-on-one mentorship with Maureen Murnan, an Arthur Findlay tutor. In 2016, I had the great honor to learn from with the iconic, Mavis Pittilla. In 2017, I trained with other Arthur Findlay tutors: in Lily Dale, NY, Colin Bates and with Simon James and Brian Robertson at the Journey Within Spiritualist Church. Most recently in 2018, I completed a short mentorship with Psychic Investigator Nancy Weber.

Beyond mediumship development, I am also a Reiki Master and trained as a consultant hypnotist. And I continue to build a successful 20-year career in Learning and Development within Fortune 500 companies.

I strongly believe that the guidance from my spirit teachers and incarnate teachers challenges me to sharpen my psychic mediumship abilities and develop in a natural and progressive way.

People who know me, know I am never satisfied with good enough. I always seek to better myself and to help others along the way. I established New Peace Within to share what I have learned with those who are seeking.

Wishing nothing but great things for you,
