Phil Quinn was just six years old when he learned the answer to a question that has mystified humans since the beginning of time — is there life after death? The startling revelation came unexpectedly, just hours after his beloved grandmother died. She suddenly appeared before him and explained that his ability to fully see and hear her — was a gift. He was to use his gift as best as he possibly could.
It was a life-changing moment for a wee boy, the youngest of five brothers, born and raised in the Catholic section of Belfast, Northern Ireland. He was old enough to know death was a part of life. But now, he also knew for certain — death was not the end of life.
For more than three decades, Phil has been spreading that message, connecting countless people with loved ones who have crossed over. His readings are known for their extraordinary detail. People all over the United States and Europe have called upon his unique ability to converse so clearly with the Other Side.
While his readings offer comfort, peace and validation for those who are grieving, Phil uses his gift for another purpose — helping others navigate roadblocks in life. As a Life Guide, he shares insight from the Other Side with anyone who might be stuck. Whether it’s a major life decision, a question involving family, a relationship or a career move, a reading with Phil Quinn provides direction and clarity.
Through the years, Phil’s work has been featured in many newspapers and magazines throughout Connecticut. He has also appeared on a number of radio and television stations, including “Better Connecticut” (WFSB-TV) and “Connecticut Style” (WTNH-TV).
In addition, Phil has been a guest lecturer at the University of Hartford, Fordham University, the Shoreline Institute of Lifelong Learning, and at high schools and Rotary Cubs all around Connecticut. He has also been called upon for assistance in paranormal and criminal investigations.
Phil has given freely of his time, offering comfort to bereavement groups, and sharing his gift with a number of charities. Through the years, he has raised tens of thousands of dollars for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, the American Cancer Society, Compassionate Friends and Mary’s Place.
Phil has called Connecticut home since 1993, when his family moved to the United States. In his spare time, he enjoys reading, gardening, and growing rare orchids. He finds peace in nature and in the company of his beloved dogs.
