What is Maastricht?
Our Maastricht one-to-one support aims to help you manage your experiences of hearing voices. We use The Maastricht Approach; a semi-structured questionnaire that has been designed by people who hear voices and mental health professionals. It can help you gain greater insight into your experiences and form a relationship with voices, resulting in personal coping strategies which can improve quality of life and increase control.
Who is Maastricht for?
This is a radical approach to working with voice hearers and those experiencing paranoia. We are Bradford’s first Maastricht Approach Centre and work in collaboration with the National Paranoia Network.
This service is for anyone aged 18+ who lives in Bradford or Craven. No diagnosis or referral is needed to access the service. We just want to help you manage your voice hearing experiences.
What do our clients say?
The sessions have really helped me understand that the voices are me, a part of me, rather than external and outside of me.
I have been able to open up and talk about things that I have never discussed with anyone else.
I understand my voices better and try to distract myself in a positive way more often (such as music).
