About Paranormal Rescue
The Paranormal Rescue organisation comprises a small core team of dedicated paranormal science-based research professionals who are open-minded sceptics instead of blind believers. When the need arises, we have the capacity to draw upon and consult with an extended team of academic and other specialists, collaborating with select partner teams/organisations in various countries, thereby providing our clients with an expanded geographical reach. Moreover, when circumstances warrant, we also engage in consultations and close collaboration with members of the clergy, ministers, priests, shamans, and individuals from diverse faiths, beliefs, and denominations, as well as those who possess extraordinary abilities that can be harnessed for professional use.
The mission of the Paranormal Rescue organisation revolves around the investigation and research of all reported paranormal activity and anomalous phenomena, including Unidentified Anomalous Phenomena (UAP), mysteries, and legends that have intrigued humanity since time immemorial. Our primary objective is to either validate or debunk the existence of these phenomena and, if proven real, to embark on a scientific exploration of the new frontiers they present.
An integral part of pursuing our overall quest has now become trying to help people and organisations who report or appear to be ensnared in what seem to be genuine paranormal problems, especially when all other avenues have been exhausted or yielded no results.
Since we cannot accept all cases presented to us, we only choose those which we find the most interesting. This means that potential clients approach us objectively and rationally presenting a detailed account of events and phenomena in chronological order, along with any supporting evidence they have managed to capture. If potential clients are unwilling to invest the time and effort to do this when requesting our assistance, we regrettably cannot undertake an investigation.
Our steadfast approach of initially seeking rational, science-based explanations may disappoint those who may prefer the presence of a paranormal issue for various reasons. Nevertheless, we adhere to our unwavering commitment. Consequently, we abide by the axiom of Sherlock Holmes, as articulated by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle in the novel "The Sign of the Four" in 1890: "When you have eliminated the impossible, whatever remains, however improbable, must be the truth." It is noteworthy that approximately 98% of the phenomena we investigate are logically explained, leaving only around 2% as genuine mysteries warranting further research and scientific exploration.
There is a prevailing misconception among some that paranormal research and related services should be conducted entirely free of charge. Many teams and organisations proudly declare their non-fee charging stance while claiming to be professional. This presents an inherent contradiction; indeed, it is an oxymoron. The definition of a professional is someone who engages in a specific activity, such as a sport, as their primary paid occupation rather than a non-revenue related pastime. Therefore, individuals or groups offering services without compensation or expenses, whether in the realm of the paranormal or otherwise, by definition will always fall into the category of amateurs.
The core team at Paranormal Rescue consists of paranormal research professionals; by definition, we earn our livelihood through this endeavour. Without income, our existence, our research, and the provision of our services would be impossible. The income each core team member receives depends on the work that individual performs and is mostly from being guest speakers at conventions, writing magazine articles, as the author of books, as consultants to the TV and film industry, and through Reiki and related holistic therapy services.
Do we charge clients a fee for our services if we accept a case? This depends on several factors. If we are asked by a commercial client such as a hotel or hotel group to solve paranormal issues, then yes, we would charge a modest professional fee together with expenses based on the number of people involved, the duration of deployment, subsistence, and travel distance etc.
Do we charge individual clients fees? Typically, no, especially if we’re only answering simple questions or performing simple work within a reasonable distance. However, if we are asked to deploy a large team on an international basis for a complex case over a considerable time, then our expectations would quite rightly be different. This is why we work in close conjunction with strategically located partner teams so we can maintain an affordable international reach.
We are a not-for-profit organisation which means that any surplus funds generated are channelled towards supporting a registered dog rescue charity. Naturally, this is beyond our operational expenses and, when appropriate, equitable compensation for team members. We always greatly appreciate voluntary donations to this charitable cause.
The fundamental analogy question to consider about professional or amateur status when contemplating engaging the services of a team or research organisation is this: “When in need of medical attention, would you prefer to consult someone who proudly identifies as an amateur, or would you opt for a seasoned professional?” If your preference aligns with the former, even with the best intentions, then our professional services may not align with your expectations.
