Collective Voices

The Hearing Voices Movement was founded more than 20 years ago, following the ground-breaking research of Professor Marius Romme and Dr Sandra Escher who have advocated for a radical shift in the way we understand the phenomenon of Hearing Voices.  Rather than taking the traditional approach favored by biological psychiatry, which views voices as a product of brain and cognitive faults, their research has firmly established that voices make sense when looking at the traumatic circumstances in life that provoked them. As the improvement in people who are encouraged to talk about their voices becomes apparent, an increasing number of voice hearers and mental health professionals are beginning to see that the key to making sense of these experiences lies in understanding the content of voices. Voices are meaningful and for some, an experience to be celebrated.

    Good day, I read your comments above with interest.
    My son (30 yrs) has had paranoid schizophrenia for the
    last 10 yrs or more. His voices have decreased since taking Clozaril, but not stopped. His voices sometimes stop him from doing things he enjoys, music, playstation etc etc. I find this very upsetting.
    I would be interested to know if there is a club for hearing voices in Colchester Essev that I could take him to?? Mostly I would like him to be able to talk to
    somebody regarding the reasons for his voices.
    Thank you for your time. Brenda Simon
