An independent Group called Voice hearers Belfast
We are a self-help group that meets fortnightly where people who hear voices see images can come together to support one another and talk about their experiences and feel accepted. This is not a counselling group but a place for you to receive encouragement, reassurance and support.
What you can expect
A safe and private place where you can talk without fear of judgement. A group supported by one voice hearer and one non voice hearer.
What we expect
Respect the confidentiality of the group
Be responsible for your well-being on the group
Respect other group members and their views
We accept that voices/visions are real for the person experiencing them.
We believe that people are not any the less for experiencing voices/visions.
We believe we are the experts of our own lives.
We value ordinary, non-professional language.
Members are free to interpret their experience in any way.
Dealing with voice hearing and paranoia can be a long and difficult process but at least you know you are not fighting it alone.
