The Voices Clinic

The Voices Clinic is a specialist psychological treatment and research clinic for people who hear voices or have similar experiences.

We provide:

  • An initial appointment to discuss your experiences, provide advice and discuss therapy options at the clinic and elsewhere;
  • Voices self-management sessions and psychological therapy are conducted at the clinic both through research trials and clinic therapists.

All therapy at the clinic is supervised by clinical psychologist Dr Neil Thomas, an expert on psychological therapy for voices.

We work closely with the Voices Vic and can provide information on hearing voices support groups.

Any sessions take place alongside the person's usual treatment. We cannot provide advice on medication or crisis management.

Referrals no longer require a Mental Health Care Plan and can be accepted from any health professional or community mental health worker.

Voices research

As well as researching psychological therapies, the clinic also conducts research on the experience of voices, on adaptation to hearing voices and on their causes and mechanisms. 

We collaborate with researchers at Swinburne University, with Voices Vic (the voice hearer-led Hearing Voices Network of Victoria), and with national and international experts on hearing voices. 

Research we conduct can involve a range of different methods including interviews, focus groups, questionnaires, computerised tasks and brain imaging.

If you are interested in participating in research on hearing voices, refer to the document Hearing Voices Participant Registry below.
