Product Description

Review

A ground-breaking guide on overcoming this distressing condition. (Professor Peter Cooper)

The information presented is up to date with current thinking within the clinical psychology community and research evidence, yet it is presented in an accessible way, with concepts carefully and clearly explained . . . the book would be a great resource for voice-hearers either to read independently or with professional support while participating in cognitive behavioural therapy. I will certainly be recommending it to the voice-hearers I work with and their relatives. I will also be suggesting that other mental health professionals I work with read the book. (Katherine Berry Psychosis)

I have enjoyed using the book with clients and they have commented on its clarity, and particularly valued reading the real life experiences. I think this book is a great resource for people who want to start making some
changes to their voice hearing experience on their own or with the support of those close to them.

(Katherine Pugh Clinical Psychology Forum)

Interesting and helpful book - perhaps it should be made available for all people effected and supporting people coping with voices - doctors, hospitals and teams in the community as well as well as more funding for this area and research.

After the recent news headlines identifying the lack of talking therapy available for those with Schizophrenia, this book has been introduced at the perfect time. As a student I felt it explained the experience of voice hearing in a simple and pragmatic manner - giving an insight into the clinical practice of applied CBT.
The book involves no jargon or technical terms, making it an easy read for all. The structure of the book allows you to dip in and out of the techniques, picking and choosing the parts relevant to your needs. Techniques are illustrated using a case study, bringing the theory back to the person and the problem. A brilliant book that fills a gap within the current field of self- help literature.

An excellent work book for clients/patiens and professionals. The wording can seem a little patronising at times but in general a simple and accesible read with practical ideas to counter distress.
