We are pleased to advise that we are holding a seminar to celebrate Hearing Voices day. This year our theme is on Healthy choices. At the Hearing Voices Network we like to encourage Voice hearers to empower themselves. To find out what makes their voices better and what makes them worse. We have three speakers to share some simple ways to help us to live with voices. To ease some of the challenges faced by people that hear distressing voices and to enhance their wellbeing so they feel stronger and better able to cope. Our research shows that often well voice hearers experience many of the same things as unwell voice hearers. The difference? Their ability to cope with their experiences. They often have many more coping strategies than distressed voice hearers. Often these strategies combine physical, mental and spiritual strategies. After all we are not just a head. We are complex integrated body systems. To follow are the details of the event. You can also download a flier from our website www.hearingvoices.org.nz
When we are faced with an obstacle in our lives, often we look for one big step that will help, in reality it is usually many small steps that are required.
