Loren Jeffery - Casual Researcher / Investigator:
Lorens first experiences started as a child sensing spirits , she later while Nursing had experiences in Hospitals and often predicting and telling after staff what they were getting in Accident and Emergency. At this stage Loren was very skeptical and really didn't want to accept that she had such abilities as it was quite frightening .
Loren went on to have her children and a couple of years ago her abilities and paranormal experiences increased immensely to the point where she couldn't ignore it any longer due to the nature of it being linked to a missing person whom she had since and still works with the family and a well known medium to try to help them. Due to this happening Loren has had to question her own beliefs, and look for answers and understand what it is she experienced.
Loren has studied the Tarot extensively which also covered other courses in Tarot Healing, and Tarot MajiK. She is a certified Level 1 in Reiki and currently sits in a Medium ship Circle.
