Steve Parsons

A Veteran Investigator & Researcher of Ghosts and Hauntings. 

More than just a Ghost Hunter

In 2012, The Wall Street Journal Called Steve Parsons "The Gold Standard of Ghost Hunting."


Steve is a unique investigator of ghosts, hauntings and related phenomena whose background, peer recognition, experience, and knowledge separate him from a domain full of pseudo-scientific amateur ghost hunters. He has hunted for ghosts since childhood and has been a full time investigator for more than 25 years. Peers and leading academic parapsychologists currently acknowledge him to be one of the best paranormal investigators in the UK.

He has been involved in many areas of psychical research and has developed and pioneered new methods of investigating ghosts and haunting phenomena. He remains at the forefront of true scientific ghost hunting. His work on infrasound and the paranormal led him to design and build specialist equipment to precisely measure & record location based Infrasound. Using newly applied digital photographic techniques, he was the first to finally demonstrate and prove that the much debated orb phenomenon has a mundane explanation.


Steve has contributed to, and participated in, numerous documentaries for broadcasters Worldwide including productions for The Discovery Channel, National Geographic Channel, Japanese TV and for both the BBC and other UK broadcasters. In addition, he has worked as the paranormal investigator on hit TV shows Most Haunted and I’m Famous & Frightened, cleverly balancing the entertainment aspect of such shows with his highly technical & informative approach to investigations. Whilst co-hosting his own paranormal show for BBC radio Steve also made regular expert contributions on radio stations throughout the UK and for many broadcasters, including those in the UK, USA & Australia. A regular contributor to the news media, books & magazines, his prolific work has featured and has been cited in many books, peer reviewed journals, as well as popular magazines and newspapers.


His forthright and no nonsense approach is well known throughout paranormal investigation circles and he has a hard won reputation for producing results. Steve has presented his research at academic conferences and 'paracon' events in the UK, Europe and the USA with more planned for the coming year.


Steve is the co-founder of Para.Science, which in 2014 celebrated 21 years of active spontaneous case investigation. Investigations that have in some instances lasted tens of thousands of man hours and taken several years to fully undertake. A commitment to quality that will continue into the future.


In addition to his work with Para.Science, he is often asked to act as an independent advisor on many other investigations offering training, support and analysis of subsequent evidence. He is a Member of the Spontaneous Case Committee of The Society for Psychical Research and an Advisor to The Ghost Club.
