Spirit Rescue International™ prides itself by being the first and only paranormal team of this kind in the world. We are made up of associates from several countries all working as a single team, keeping in contact with one another by computer and Skype. When working a case we not only look at the problem the client is experiencing but also research the history of the situation.
First we have a group consultation...after that the research begins. We examine factors like the geological stress and the water table of an area as well as other natural and environmental elements. The process can be time-consuming but necessary for a positive result. Remote viewing is also used in our investigations and is a very important tool in our observation arsenal. As a team we prefer to address all aspects of a case scientifically before we consider it from a psychic view. We take our time with our investigations leaving no stone unturned. Then, and only then, we will deal with the problem in order to bring harmony and calmness to the client and the premises. I am proud to say that our organisation has never failed in these objectives thus we have achieved a 100% performance and satisfaction ratio with our clients.
It has been proven that distance, time and administration as a team are not a problem or liability. This approach has made it possible to successfully reach and work with any client anywhere in the world.
Please Note: Spirit Rescue International is and will always be a non profit organisation - no cost to the client at all. The reason for this is because Irene does not believe in making money from people's grief and fear. Spirit Rescue International employs the use of investigators and helpers around the world. These people also are non-profit workers giving up their own free time for those in need. Not every case we come up against is paranormal - some are medical and some are people with financial problems, etc. In these instances we try to find the help they need to improve their lives. In the past clients have tried to give us donations but we have always asked them to put the money into their favorite charity. Recently however, we've added a "donate" button, so that anyone who wishes to make a direct contribution can finally do so. These funds will be used for case expenses only, with any remaining funds being periodically donated to charity. We sincerely appreciate your support for the work we do, and assure you that these funds will only be used for more good works.

Is Llanelli, Still Wales' Most Haunted Town?
Is Llanelli, Wales' Most Haunted Town?
Who better to talk to than Llanelli's own Spirit rescuer Irene Allen-Block, who was quoted by The Wales on Sunday as saying that Llanelli is a "hotbed of ghostly activity."
My name is Irene Allen-Block. I'm a spirit rescuer with over 40 years experience and Llanelli has more than its fair share of haunting and negative energy.
When did you first become aware of the paranormal?
I have had the ability to see spirits for as long as I can remember. This was just very normal to me, so there was never any single occurrence which I can call a turning point.
I never even realised that I was any different than other children until I was about ten years old.
It was at that time that I became aware that such a thing existed called the paranormal and realised that I could sense and see things others couldn't.
Can you tell us some of your early experiences?
The earliest experience I can remember was around the age of 4 or 5. In those days it was relatively safe to play outside as long as I didn't stray further then my mum could see.
A group of us village children all about the same age, would congregate to play outside of my house. Often as we played I would see a small boy of about the same age standing watching us.
He had wavy hair and short trousers, and he looked so sad and lonely.
Many times during these weeks of seeing him I would call out and try to get him to come and play with us but he never answered me.
I even asked the other kids to ask him, but they just looked at me strange and said 'ask who?'
One day I was playing by myself on my brothers homemade stilts and I saw the boy there again watching me.
I was trying to walk on them, but kept falling off more than staying on. I fell off and went down on my bottom. Feeling silly, I lost my temper at him and shouted for him to go away.
He just stood there and after a few more shouts, I yelled out that his mum and dad was looking for him. I could hear them calling.
With that, he took his gaze off of me, looked to the side, and disappeared right there and then!
I never saw him again and now often wonder if that was my first clearing of a spirit, I am sure it was.
Did you have any other experiences?
Looking back at those days there were lots of them. I saw spirits where ever I went, whether I was out shopping with my mum, or playing in the house.
One that stands out happened when I was about 7 years old. I then lived in a small English village in Sussex. I was allowed to go to play with my friend who lived down by the church. As I walked past the Vicarage, I saw a young girl in old clothing about my age playing in the garden.
I called out to her as I climbed up on to the gate to get a better look. She seemed to notice me, but never answered. This carried on all through the summer holidays.
Every time I went past the Vicarage garden she was there. Each time, I would stop and try to get her to talk to me with no success.
Time went on and eventually, as a family, we moved to London. I never gave the little girl another thought.
Years later, I went back to the village as an adult and whilst there, I decided to visit the church and the graves of my grandparents.
I had forgotten the little girl now, and went straight past the Vicarage garden and into the church. On the side there was a pile of small books that had been written on the history of the village.
Whilst flicking through the pages of one, I noticed my family name so I decided to buy a copy.
While I was returning home to London on the train I started to read it. There was a piece in there that talked about the time that renovations had been done on the Vicarage about 10 years previous.
The builders had discovered the skeleton of a young girl. It was thought that she was aged
between 7 or 8 years, and dated to about 250 to 300 years ago. She had been taken and given a proper burial in the churchyard. Somehow I know this was my little girl I used to watch playing.
Were any of them evil or bad spirits?
As a child I never saw anything malevolent and although sometimes I did see spirits that were in the form of adults, they just seemed to pass me by.
It was nearly always the spirits of children that I saw, and was interested in. Maybe because that was where my attention lay.
Children don't have fear until they have knowledge, and a lot of that is put into children by their parents. Much of it is for safety, for example look both ways crossing the street and don't talk to strangers etc.
I was always trying to touch things to learn about them. Smoke, mists, ugly things, etc.
I had no fear. I felt we were connected. That all was connected, all part of life.
This is why I say don't dismiss a child when they talk about friends unseen; it could be imagination or not.
Just keep an eye on the situation. As long as the character of the child does not change then most times, as the child gets older, the child seems to grow out of their friend.
I was lucky here, I had a father who understood and explained things in a way that wasn't frightening.

Ghost whisperer claims Llanelli 'swimming with paranormal activity'
WalesOnline - Sunday July 10, 2011
A Welsh town is a hotbed of evil ghostly activity, alien abductions and animal mutilations, Wales' only ghost whispering exorcist reveals today.Irene Allen-Block, head of Spirit Rescue International (SRI) in Carmarthenshire, told Wales on Sunday that Llanelli is one of a few "hotbeds" of paranormal activity in the world - and is "swimming" with negative energy.
She has investigated dozens of spooky cases across the world with the help of more than 20 volunteers dotted around the US, Australia, New Zealand and further afield.
She reveals today:
She had her first ghostly experience at five when she saw a dead boy when she was playing in the street;
Scores of unexplained sheep and cow mutilations occur across South Wales every year;
She plans to unmask Bigfoot with remote viewing in sighting cluster hotspots across the US;
Blockbuster movie The Sixth Sense was "by far the most realistic" interpretation of paranormal activity ever made for entertainment.
The 60-year-old grandmother-of-two has spent her life investigating and "clearing" spirits from the houses and land of terrified residents who come to her for help.
Her real-life ghost whispering - which she finances out of her own pocket and with the help of volunteers - will be documented in an upcoming book, Among The Spirits.
"My first experience was when I was five years old, and I was playing with a group of other kids in the street," she said.
"I looked over and saw there was a boy standing there, with blond, curly hair and blue eyes, looking like he was from the 1940s or '50s. He was just watching us.
"I felt sorry for him and asked him to come and play, but he didn't answer and just kept watching us."
She added: "I saw him again a couple of days later and asked him if he wanted to play again, but he just gave me this blank stare. When I asked everyone else to tell him to go away, they just thought I was crazy.
"I thought he was thinking I was stupid and got angry, told him to go away, and he then disappeared. I realised years later that was probably my first clearing."
She says that nearby Llanelli is built on an underground river, pointing to that as a possible reason for a high level of paranormal activity.
Irene and her colleague Lon Strickler, a spirit rescuer based in Baltimore, have spent two months tackling a demonic spirit terrorising a family of six in the town.
The family in the house report strange noises and moved objects.
The woman who contacted Irene hasn't been able to sleep properly for three or four months, and her husband once woke up feeling something squeezing his neck, crushing his Adam's apple.
Videos of her "exorcising" the house are on YouTube, which she says show whistles, chirps and whispered words in Welsh and English. And she said the house was an example of Llanelli's dark aura.
"There are more cases in Llanelli than anywhere else in Wales," Mrs Allen-Block says. "It's a small town but it has a lot of negative feelings.
"I can't explain what it is, but there is a dark feeling you have when you are there. It's the opposite in Carmarthen, which has a very positive energy.
"There have been quite a few cases there, and there has been animal mutilations reported in the area - and we are often investigating alien abduction attempts in South Wales and elsewhere, and lots of UFO sightings."
"I don't know why it's got this feeling, but it does."
Irene - a former dancer and model - says that there are earthbound spirits of dead people that often remain on earth due to unfinished business, such as a missing will.
She happily shares her own house with two earthbound spirits - an Edwardian couple called Herbert and Annie.
But she claims there are the more sinister non-earthbound spirits - residents of another dimension - that are evil and can terrorise families.
Revealing her methods for the first time, Irene said that she can "clear" spirits from houses through "remote viewing" - using cameras, recording equipment - and Skype.
Channelling vibrations - with the aid of a spirit guide - she says she uses Catholic rites and rituals to shift evil spirits after observing them through remote viewing - but said the key was having "faith in what you are doing".
"Especially with non-earthbound beings, I go after them and use my personality and show my strength," she said.
"It just builds within me until I know that I'm going to clear it - I really go after it, and just want to knock its lights out."
She has plans to use the technique to unmask the elusive Bigfoot - who she believes is inter-dimensional being that can move from one domain to another through portals.
Irene said: "There are certain places in the US where he is often seen. It has got a big following out there - and we just need to target one of these places. But I haven't got round to it yet."
Dismissing demon-fighting shows like Buffy the Vampire Slayer and alien series The X-Files, she says that The Sixth Sense was a true reflection of the paranormal.
"I really saw myself in that boy," she said. "I just thought 'that's like my life'.
"When I first watched it, I just thought that it was exactly what it is like, it was by far the most realistic I've seen."
The Vine Inn Investigation: Media Account
The Llanelli Star - July 6, 2011
Spirits that occupy most pubs are held in optics, but for one Llanelli pub, it was the supernatural kind which they were trying to dispense of.
The Vine Inn was visited late last Wednesday by Irene Allen-Block, who describes herself as a ghost whisperer.
Speaking to the Star last month, Mrs Allen-Block, said she believed the Station Road pub had ghostly links after investigations at another case in the town pointed the finger there.
Mrs Allen-Block was keen to look into the potential haunting, and so an investigation was arranged.
At 11pm, Mrs Allen-Block and fellow investigator Karen Allan arrived, meeting a few members of pub staff, a couple of regulars and a reporter from the Star.
The pair were then given free rein of the pub to attempt to solve the problem, where they used electronic voice phenomena to try to pick up any noises resembling voices while also capturing pictures on night vision.
Tracey Howells, who works and lives at the pub, told of her own supernatural experiences and that she would not be surprised if Mrs Allen-Block found something.
She said: "A few months ago a couple of us saw a table fly off a chair in the far corner of the pub, by our snooker table.
"It had been put there overnight ready for when the cleaners came in.
"Nobody was near it, I always thought that it had to be something. I also experienced another haunting at my old home in Downing Street.
"A lot of people say that they won't believe until they see it - which I can understand, but I have just been intrigued from my personal experiences.
"I'm not worried. It's not the dead you have to be worried about, it's the living."
Another barmaid said: "There's nothing you can do about it. If they are here they are here, but they can't do anything to us."
After a couple of hours investigating, Mrs Allen-Block, who said she never charged a penny for her work, suddenly announced she had discovered something.
She said: "There is a dark mass in the corner of the snooker room. There is definitely something in there."
Mrs Allen-Block noted that she could feel a cold sensation "like a freezer" following her from the room, but when approaching the main bar area it stopped.
She added: "It stops after you get into the main area. I can feel a real presence in that room, very strong energy."
Ms Howells and pub regular Richard Williams said the back room with the snooker table in it was a single dwelling before the pub was built in 1872.
"Maybe the spirit is someone who was staying there many years ago," Ms Howells suggested. Mrs Allen-Block then decided to soak the area in what she described as holy water, to the curiosity of those on hand.
She said: "You may have heard a few things moving around down here if I didn't spray the area.
"This case doesn't look too serious, but if you hear anything call me and I will return to solve it."
With a warning not to contact the spirit using Ouija boards, Mrs Allen-Block then departed into the night at 2am.
Mr Williams, 44, added: "I won't be playing snooker in that room again! No wonder I always lose."
Excerpts from an article published in The Llanelli Star - 6/7/2011
A series of online videos, which have received exposure through YouTube, show an "entity investigation" taking place at a Llanelli home.
Whistles, chirps and whispered words in Welsh and English are clearly audible in the video.
As things have continued to go bump in the night, the terrified occupants of the Llanelli house - a couple with four children - have called in a specialist.
That person is Irene Allen-Block, who lives in a village in Carmarthenshire.
"I have been able to identify spirits since I was 9 years old," she said.
"I knew I was able to do this sort of thing after having an experience when I was very young.
"I always knew my ability was special and that I was meant to do this kind of thing."
Mrs. Allen-Block has made three visits to the home of the family, who do not want to be identified.
"They are absolutely terrified," she said.
"The woman living there says she has not been able to sleep properly for three to four months.
"I try to explain to her that spirits feed off negative energy.
"Her husband has been continuously ill, sick and has even collapsed.
"The other night he said that he woke up feeling something squeezing his neck crushing his Adam's apple."
The real-life ghost whisperer has been a paranormal investigator for 40 years and says she does use some recording equipment to capture electronic voice phenomena and visual anomalies.
She also employs coordinate and scientific remote viewing, seeking impressions about a distant or unseen target using subspace perception.
While visiting she said she had witnessed things moving around, and the family said things had even gone missing. "My investigations show two earthbound spirits, an old man and a child, and also a woman from the 1800s.
"We thought they were a family, but after attempting to channel the spirits, it seems like she is demonic and from an alternate reality or dimension," said Mrs. Allen-Block.
"We think the female may be holding the two earthbound spirits back.
"She whispers, mimicking members of the family, even when they are not there."
Mrs. Allen-Block claimed this kind of paranormal activity was a growing trend in Llanelli, with this being the second in the past four months.
"There was another big case recently at a large house in Felinfoel," she said.
"The client brought me in because anyone who had anything to do with the house ended up dying - even a repairman at the house fell off a ladder to his death."
"I managed to solve that case and now I want to solve this too.
A recent remote viewing at the house has also led Mrs. Allen-Block to believe there were ghostly links to a Llanelli pub.
"The viewing took us to a pub where there was a long bar. It focused on an old man looking angry. We believe it may be at The Vine on Station Road," she said.
Andrea Howells, landlady at The Vine, said there may be a link.
"We have heard quite a lot of noises over the years, but have always blamed that on the old floorboards," she said.
"You never know, there may be something going on here."
Mrs. Allen-Block is founder of Spirit Rescue International, a non-profit group that looks to clear spirits from haunted and entity infested locations.
"We check out the geography and then once we move the spirits on we counsel people if they need it - the trauma doesn't end for them, the fear is still there," she said.
"I have never charged a penny - I don't believe in making money from my gifts."
"You see so many TV shows these days which just exploit the dead. That is not what it is about."
"I get satisfaction when I see smiles on faces," she added.
Lon Strickler is a paranormal & fortean investigator / spiritual researcher who writes and mentors on a variety of supernatural & esoteric subjects. He is the Spirit Rescue International Case Manager/VP, as well as a remote viewer and intuitive, and works directly with founder and spirit rescuer Irene Allen-Block, who hand-picked him as her protege.
Lon was born and raised in Hanover, Pennsylvania and later relocated to the Baltimore, MD metro area in 1976. At an early age, Lon realized that he had the ability to sense spiritual energy and found this useful in the field when conducting investigations. Most of his early field work concentrated on spiritual activity at historical locations in Maryland and Pennsylvania, in particular locations where traumatic events have occurred.
In 1981, Lon experienced a "Bigfoot" encounter near Sykesville, MD while fishing on the south branch of the Patapsco River. As a result of the incident, he included cryptid studies as an important part of his interests. He continued to work in the field until 2001, when physical limitations forced him to scale back.
In 2010, Lon became part of the 'Beyond The Edge' radio family and currently co-hosts the weekly live broadcast.
Lon started the 'Phantoms and Monsters' blog in 2005, which has steadily grown in popularity and read daily by thousands of paranormal enthusiasts, investigators and those seeking the truth.
