Dawn Kirkham, Beyond Belief Founder
Dawn Kirkham, Beyond Belief Founder
I have been working as a clairvoyant medium for around 15 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 host a meet up group called Victoria Metaphysical and Intuitive Development Group, which meets the last Friday of every month. For further information check out www.meetup.com

Alicia - Beyond Belief Investigator, Researcher and Location Finder
I am currently a graduate student at the University of Victoria researching haunted historic sites and paranormal occurrences across North America. My mentorship with Dawn, and the incredible people of Beyond Belief, inspired me to continue this research across Canada and the United States, looking at connections between different landscapes and haunting experiences reported yearly. Outside of learning and volunteering with Beyond Belief, I advocate for the protection and conservation of haunted historic sites, teach literature, brew tea, and spend time with my family in Calgary. www.preservethehaunt.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.

I have experienced various paranormal events, seem to be sensitive to spirit energy and have a strong sense of empathy that has existed for my entire life and as far back as a child that I can remember. The more intense of an event I experienced the more curious and less afraid I became. From my experiences, I believe there is more than what we see and hear and that there is a reason for it, so now I am curious as to what is that reason? I have been on various levels of investigations, spend a lot of time researching the paranormal and related history and am often experimenting with various ways to communicate in efforts to better understand spirit’s presence and to gain more communication opportunities. I am thrilled to be a new member on Beyond Belief’s team and am really looking forward to the experiences that will come and to learn from the team’s expertise. http://unearthingshadowsparanormal.wordpress.com/

I am grateful to be a part of the Beyond Belief team. My mediumship abilities have been enhanced by the activities we practice as a paranormal investigating team. Aside from ghost hunting my personal practice involves one on one sessions for mediumship and spiritual counselling as well as group sessions. I provide reiki and reflexology as well. I look forward to serving you! www.intrinsicliving.vpweb.ca

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
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.
