Along with many television appearances, normally in documentaries, since 1990 she has also prepared and presented many papers to the SPR International Conferences, over the past 20 years.
She is the co-author, with Professor Archie Roy, of three published papers on the study of information provided by mediums. These papers follow a five-year study of controlled experiments in conditions up to triple blind. The results of these studies are published in the JSPR April 2001, January 2004 and July 2004.
Tricia was a founding member, and Hon Sec of PRISM, Psychical Research Involving Selected Mediums, 1994- 2008.
She has completed a four/five year, in depth, study of exceptional paranormal healing started 2006 and producing some spectacular results. Some of these results would indicate a form of psychic surgery. The final report may be downloaded from this site.
She has completed a report on a 6 year old boy in Scotland, who remembers a previous life.
Apart from three published peer reviewed papers in the JSPR, she has articles published in the journals of the Swedish and Norwegian Societies for Psychical Research.
Tricia is passionate about the evidence gathered in various aspects of Psychical Research, and does not suffer fools gladly who will not address specific evidence in any particular avenue.
While accepting that some people may be deluded in some aspects of experience, it is certain that there are genuine cases in nearly every aspect of paranormal claims.
Tricia has appeared in many documentaries on TV, on BBC, ITV and Discovery channels. In recent years she has featured on America's prestigious Coast to Coast twice, The Unexplained tv, Beyond 3D, Real ghost stories, ADX files, Kev Baker show, Hayhouse radio and Talk radio Provocativeenlightenment.com, with Eldon Taylor.http://provocativeenlightenment.com/wp/2016-0526-things-you-can-do-when-you-are-dead-with-tricia-robertson .
