Online Hearing Voices Group Facilitation & Network Development Training with Jacqui Dillon

Hearing Voices Network Ireland is pleased to announce an online Hearing Voices Group Facilitation & Network Development Training course, facilitated by Jacqui Dillon. It has been a while since training has been made available in Ireland and HVNI are particularly pleased to (virtually) welcome Jacqui back to Ireland. The course will consist of 3-hour weekly sessions over an 8-week period.

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)

Places limited to 20 participants.

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:

  1. the details provided in the application form
  2. the ability to attend all (or at least 7) sessions
  3. 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)
