A safe and non-judgemental space to explore our voices and different ways of coping with them.
‘Hearing Voices’ is used as a generic term to include people who hear, see or sense things that others don’t. It is a relatively common human experience – between 3 and 10% of adults hear voices, this figure rises to over 75% if you include one off experiences like hearing your phone ring when no-one is calling you. Tthe majority of people who hear voices do not have a problem with this – in fact their experiences may be beneficial or at least neutral. However, a significant minority (roughly a third) of voice-hearers struggle to cope and may be diagnosed with a mental health problem.
Sutton Hearing Voices group has been running for fifteen years and continues to provide a safe and non-judgemental space to explore our voices and ‘unusual beliefs’ and the meaning, if any we make of them.
We are affiliated to the Hearing Voices Network and their ethos of challenging discrimination and stigma towards people who experience visions, voices and other ‘unusual’ experiences. We believe that there are a range of different ways of coping with what can be distressing experiences and that sharing ideas with other people who have similar experiences can be very powerful.
