“Supporting People Experiencing Hearing Voices, Paranoia & Unusual Beliefs Using the Maastricht Interview Tool”

with Peter Bullimore

Cost: FREE | Virtual – Zoom

These six sessions, online training will help those interested in or supporting people who are making meaning of their experiences as voice hearers and/or their experience with unusual beliefs (often named “paranoia).




Pete Bullimore, chair of the National Paranoia Network, is testament to how powerful acceptance of and learning to work with voices and paranoia can be.

Pete heard his first voice aged seven, “I heard a child’s voice telling me to keep going, that everything would be OK. It was reassuring, a bit like an imaginary friend,” he says. But as bad things happened in my life the voices increased in number, eventually turning sinister and aggressive. “They told me to set myself on fire, to slash myself and destroy myself, often 20 or 30 voices all shouting at me at once,” he says. By his mid-twenties Pete had lost his business, his family, his home, everything. “The voices just encompassed my life; I curled up in a chair and didn’t wash or eat. “I was locked in a world of voices, paranoia and depression, and it was probably the most frightening time of my life,” he says.

Pete spent more than a decade after that on heavy medication, the voices never went away. He had to get out of the psychiatric system to recover. Once he was off the medication and he met people who shared his experiences at the Hearing Voices Network, he was able to stop being so afraid of the voices and he started to listen to them. His relationship with the voices changed and he learned the meaning of his voices and paranoia.

Pete is based in the UK. Today, Pete owns his own agency, providing training and consulting internationally on hearing voices. childhood trauma, and paranoia. He is a regularly invited guest lecturer for multiple (14) universities and has cultivate his work by setting up Maastricht Centers and Maastricht Approach Centers throughout the UK.

“I wouldn’t want to get rid of my voices now, they’re part of me.” Peter Bullimore
