Dawn Kirkham, Beyond Belief Founder
Dawn Kirkham, Beyond Belief Founder
I have been working as a clairvoyant medium for around 12 years and undertaking paranormal investigations for over 6 years. I have investigated some of the most haunted locations in the UK and now in Victoria. During the investigations I have encountered a whole range of spiritual activity and non-physical entities and I bring this experience to all investigations. Bringing together equipment and spiritual based investigating techniques I work with clients and event participants to understand and document paranormal activity, communicate with spirit, share their story and support the client to find a resolution to their situation. I am often asked to speak about my experiences and support the development of psychics and mediums by facilitating development circles. I currently host a meet up group called Victoria Metaphysical and Intuitive Arts Group, which meets the last Friday of every month. For further information check out www.meetup.com

Alisha - Beyond Belief Investigator and Researcher
I have had paranormal experiences since I was a child. I am very interested in the stories of the spirits: who they are, why they are here, and how we can help them. I consider myself a medium-in-training under the guidance of this wonderful team! I have also been a tour guide with Ghostly Walks for 6 years and I know the stories of many of Victoria's spirit population. My goal is to grow spiritually and become more in-tune with the other side in order to offer help to anyone who needs it.

Edward - Beyond Belief Medium
When I was seven I got scarlet fever and was extremely sick - that's when I had my first out of body experience. From that point on I had a higher sense of life - could do things, I would know things, I could hear and see spirits. Through this journey we call life I have learned to accept and understand the abilities and to use them to help others. Be it through Reiki for those that seek energy to heal or through guided meditation sessions, I like to help others that are seeking answers, a way to begin their own personal journey of understanding

Gary Blechinberg - Beyond Belief Investigator
I have been interested in the spiritual and paranormal most of my life. I've been to the Monroe Institute in Virginia three times exploring consciousness and meditation. I'm interested in energetic healing and have taken courses in EFT, Matrix Energetics, Quantum Touch and others. I believe we are much more than our physical bodies. I feel lucky to be working with Dawn and my colleagues in this adventure. I look forward to exploring with others what lies beyond this physical world

As far back as I can remember I have been fascinated by the paranormal and have had some experiences that I could never explain. I am a remote viewer and a Reiki master and am so excited to be working with Beyond Belief to help others use their senses and maybe find the proof they are looking for.
Lori - Beyond Belief Investigator and Researcher
Lori - Beyond Belief Investigator and Researcher
Lori is a new member of Dawn’s group but has worked with Dawn at the Maritime Museum of BC for almost all of the investigations held in that haunted building. She is the go-to ghost person at the museum since she has done the ghost tours there for the last 7 years. She has had encounters with many spirits at the museum over the 8 years she has been a volunteer there. Lori has been sensitive to spirit energy from a young age and has had some unusual experiences in communication with them. It’s a sense that runs through her mother’s family, from seeing spirit to the knowing they are close by, to the chills up the back of the neck and all over the body and sometimes a smell of something that is not in the room. Lori is very pleased to be a part of the Beyond Belief team and will be helping in research and investigations.
Michael - Beyond Belief Investigator and Researcher
Michael - Beyond Belief Investigator and Researcher
I am a lifelong resident of BC and have spent more than half my life on Vancouver Island. Prior to that I was to be found in the Kootenays, known for its Bigfoot and Ogopogo sightings. These 2 elusive creatures and my childhood growing up in a very unique culture has prepared me for the journey I am taking now as a member of Dawn's team. I am not a medium or a psychic like many of my counterparts. I am a researcher and more on the technical side of things. I have had many encounters in the paranormal and was witness to the closely guarded lives of the gypsies which has fueled my desire to learn and experience more. As I have grown wiser and more gray I have wanted to immerse myself more into many aspects of the paranormal. You will find I am a natural facilitator and to share a tale, story or interesting tidbit of historical information delights me to no end.
Sarah - Beyond Belief Medium
Sarah - Beyond Belief Medium
I grew up realizing I was a Clairvoyant Psychic Medium as early as the age of two when it was apparent that the world around me looked very different through my eyes than the way my family saw it. I see and communicate with spirits everywhere I go. Past, present and future are not defined in terms of clear lines to me and I find that accessing this information comes easily to me. I volunteer with Beyond Belief, as well as, work as a Psychic Medium and Medical Intuitive outside of investigating paranormal locations in B.C. Working with Dawn has provided me with a great outlet to explore and share my skills with people of all ages, backgrounds and interests and I love being able to help those who can't "see" the way that I do the amazing world of the paranormal.
Teddi - Beyond Belief Medium
Teddi - Beyond Belief Medium
I am a Medium - I see, hear and sense the emotions of spirits. I was blessed with being born into a family that both understood and helped to develop my psychic abilities. As I grew they helped me to understand why and what I was sensing and how to interpret what I was feeling and seeing. I was taught about doing no harm, protection and balance - and living in harmony with our surroundings. As I grew I learned what my strenghts are and what my weaknesses are and have learned to work with both to help me develop and move forward to help others now.
Tracy - Beyond Belief Investigator
Tracy - Beyond Belief Investigator
I'm excited to be part of Dawn's Beyond Belief team! I've always been interested in ghostly adventures and found myself surrounded by the paranormal. I'm a Investigator, Medium and do Marketing for the team. I'm fairly new to it all and as such so excited to be learning and playing with the equipment in hopes that I can "catch a ghost" and find some evidence to back it up. Working with the team is great they all have such amazing gifts it's truly a blessing for me. My psychic experiences have been in sensing spirits and knowing what their needs are with hopes of assisting if possible to facilitate as required. Like many of the others in our team I also am a Reiki Practitioner. I've traveled extensively all over the world and enjoyed many different cultures. I'm a single parent and mother of 2 kids that live with me and we have an adorable dog named Ella that's a rescue and a sweet n cuddly cat named Bailey who also found a cozy place to stay. It's incredible to do what you truly believe in and enjoy!
