Latest News & Updates

17 December, 2015

It's now the end of my first year as a fully freelance trainer and consultant (after leaving the wondering Mind in Camden Hearing Voices Projects in February). It's certainly been a busy year - with lots of exciting projects, courses and connections. This issue I'm particularly excited to be sharing details of some new upcoming courses - including some online options which are perfect for those who can't attend in person or like to study at their own pace. There's also some exciting developments happening in Kent and Ipswich, where I'm helping people begin to develop Hearing Voices Networks.

As 2016 approaches, I will you all the very best for the festive period and the new year.

As always, if you want to keep in touch - check out
New: Online Courses
4 week courses, beginning 4 January 2016

In response to a number of requests, I'm launching a series of online courses - especially for those who live outside of the UK or find it difficult to fit in full day courses into their busy lives. Each consists of 4 x 1 week modules, videos and online access to a learning area. The first 2 courses will be:
  • A Fresh Approach to Living With Voices
  • A Fresh Approach to Taboo & Violent Voices
Introductory offer: £25 (full) and £15 (concessions - including unwaged and minimum waged).

If you really want to attend but genuinely can't afford it, please let me know to see if we can work something out.

Informed Choice: Moving towards a balanced relationship with psychiatric medication
Wednesday 13 January 2016, Glasgow

This one day workshop explores the helpful and unhelpful effects of medication, evidence around efficacy and - importantly - how we can support people to make informed choices around its use ... whether they take it, reduce it or stop altogether.

Fees: £75 (Full), £50 (Reduced) & £25 (Concession).

Hearing Voices Meeting - Launching a group?
Friday 29 January 2015, Ipswich

Earlier in the year I ran a workshop on 'Living With Voices' in Ipswich.

Developing a Hearing Voices Network in Kent
Wednesday 10 February 2016, Canterbury
