The definitive self-help guide for the surprisingly common, and distressing, condition of hearing voices.
Learn how to break the circle of 'never good enough' Voice hearing or 'auditory hallucinations' is more common than might be expected, affecting betweem 5 and 28 per cent of us. It can be experienced as part of a range of mental-health disorders, including schizophrenia, affective psychosis and dissociative conditions. Learning to live with the condition can be challenging; however, cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT), on which this authoritative self-help guide is based, has been found to be highly effective, providing a powerful and positive way of coping with the experience and of, on occasion, learning to live with the voices.Overcoming self-help guides use clinically-proven techniques to treat long-standing and disabling conditions, both psychological and physical.
Many guides in the Overcoming series are recommended under the Reading Well Books on Prescription scheme.
