Leah Lewis claims to have suffered months of spiritual activity in the home she shares with her mother, resulting in her having unexplained scratches on her thigh. Her experience forced to call in the help of a psychic medium to cleanse her haunted house and help the apparition “pass to the other side”.
As reported by Staffordshire Live, Ms Lewis believes the ghost “followed” her home from her work at a shop that he had been haunting – something which the 21-year-old is sure of as she had “seen” it lurking behind her.
Staff at the shop had speculated that the ghost was a murdered man from the area, describing him as “aggressive and angry”.
The supernatural troubles started at the family’s home in Staffordshire just a few weeks after Ms Lewis’ grandfather passed away.
Her mother, Colette, said: “Leah started saying that she could see and hear things which none of us could. I remember this one evening driving to my mum’s. She asked me if I saw the little girl stood on the roadside and I was blown away as I couldn’t see anyone in sight.
“Fast forward a few months and her ability has only got stronger. She’d come home from work and tells me about the activity she’d experience while being there. Little did we know she would end up having ‘the man upstairs’ as she referred to him, follow her home and become our worst nightmare.”
On one occasion, Ms Lewis could feel a man slowly breathing down her neck – later finding scratched on her thigh after getting out of the shower.
She said: “I didn’t feel anything at all [in the shower] until I saw the scratches when I was drying myself.
“I told my mum and she said I think we need to contact Ian Griffiths [the psychic medium] now. We had been putting it off for a while but now I had been physically assaulted.”
Later that night, she went into her mother’s room to ask what she was doing as she could her something rummaging around in the wardrobe – but was stunned to discover her mum in bed nowhere near the closet.
Ms Lewis’ mum said: “With her now being physically harmed, I thought enough is enough and I needed to do something about it. I asked around my friends and they asked their friends and I got quite a few recommendations for Ian Griffiths and I reached out to him giving him a small description of what had been going on and right from the get go, he was amazing.”
According to Ms Lewis, the help of the psychic medium was invaluable in ending the supernatural “activity” she was experiencing.
She said: “He confirmed everything we had experienced and then he ‘passed the man over to the other side’ from his house.
“One day at around 6.40pm I was leaving my house to go to the shop and suddenly I felt really angry and felt I needed to get out. Ian later said this was around the same time the man passed over.”

Mr Griffiths explained that as soon as he heard from Ms Lewis’ mum he pictured the man as slim and tall, wandering around the house – and he had never been there before.
He said: “I told her what I was picking up and she says that’s what’s been happening and what we have seen wandering around the house. The male spirit didn’t seem positive. I got a more negative feeling from him.
“Over the years of mediumship I have learnt how to remove spirits. It is years of learning and experience removing good and negative spirits. Some negative ones can be very challenging at time. Some can mark you as it did with Leah or make you feel ill and put unwanted emotions on people.
“I’ve been affected by some negative ones, pushed, marked and even nasty comments close to my ear or face but in the end it comes down to learning about how to deal with each negative spirit that I’ve come across over the years. Once I’ve removed the spirit I start blessing the person that has been affected and blessing the home. In each room I say prayers. It may take a bit of time going around the home.
“Some places may have portals where spirits can and go through like a door way. This home had two portals where spirits can come and go. I sealed them up so nothing else comes in to the home. Each time someone texts about spirit in the home you never know what you’re going to come across or what challenge you face. Sometimes it can take over you life. I love the work of mediumship and paranormal investigating.”
