Paul van Bree, a self-styled "paragnost" or clairvoyant, has been hired by the Dutch prison service to teach prisoners how to "love themselves".
"I tell them that dead relatives are doing well and that they love them. That brings them peace. Big strong men burst into tears," he said.
Mr van Bree, who also publishes annual predictions of the future, claims to be from a long line of clairvoyants, including his mother and grandmother.
