Hearing Voices Group Facilitation Training with Jacqui Dillon – A Second Opportunity

There were more applications than places available for the May/June Hearing Voices Group Facilitation Training with Jacqui Dillon. Hearing Voices Network Ireland is pleased to announce that Jacqui Dillon is running another 8-week online Hearing Voices Group Facilitation & Network Development Training course, from 2-5 pm, starting Tuesday 6th September. Those whom we not able to offer a place on the 3rd May course have already been offered a place on the 6th Sept course.

There are however places available on the 6th September course, so expressions of interest are now invited from voice hearers and others active in the hearing voices movement in Ireland, who are in a position to set up and facilitate/co-facilitate a HV Support group (face to face or online), either independently or with the support from an organisation (either statutory or voluntary). This needs to be clearly demonstrated in the application. Joint applications are specifically welcomed. 

Limited number of Scholarships available (inquiries to info@hearingvoicesnetworkireland.ie)

We warmly welcome applications from people who hear voices. Please note, that we would encourage people who have developed a working relationship with their voices to apply, as training and group facilitation can be demanding.

Places on the programme are limited to 20 and will be allocated on:

  • the details provided in the application form
  • the ability to attend all (or at least 7) sessions
  • start/facilitate/co-facilitate a Hearing Voices group following completion of the course.


8 x 3-hour weekly online sessions from Tuesday 6 September – Tuesday 25 October 2022 from 14.00 – 17.00 IST/UTC+1


€200 Euro – Waged/Professional (payments by instalments possible)
