This survey is an extension of the research I conducted while studying for my PhD at Coventry University. My PhD research looked at reports of paranormal experiences involving seeing something not physically present, hearing a voice from no known cause or the movement of objects. These experiences were then compared to experiences collected in similar research conducted over 100 years ago. The research I am now conducting will look at experiences where disturbances within a building, such as the movement of objects, coincide with the appearance of an apparition.

You will be asked to provide your email address so I can contact you to request any further information I may require regarding your experience (you can chose not to participate any further). Your email will not be shared with any third party, and will be deleted from my records as soon as our correspondence concludes, or after 30 days from your last reply (whichever is sooner). The answers you submit will be entered into a database which will be made available to other researchers once this research has been completed.
