Membership gives access to the 10 professional development presentations each year and networking events held.

Counsellors Victoria (CV) online professional development Zoom session for May 2024:


CV Presents:

An introduction to the Hearing Voices Approach – working to support
people who hear voices.

The Presenter is from Uniting’s Voices Vic, which is an award winning,
and research supported specialist program improving the wellbeing and
recovery of people who hear voices.
Voices Vic uses “hearing voices” as an umbrella term used to refer to
auditory, visual, olfactory sensory experiences, and beliefs that others
around them do not experience.
This May’s PD will be an introduction to the Hearing Voices Approach.
You will learn about the origins of the approach, what recovery for a
voice hearer may look like, as well as the meaning/purpose voices may
carry for people, and how to work with a person and their voices.

Peer Support Worker, Janet, will discuss their experience on this topic
followed by a Q & A and the option to network with others in industry, in small groups,
following the presentation.
This is a 90-minute presentation relevant to the Counselling /
Healthcare industries, complete with assessment component.
A ‘Certificate of Attendance with online assessment’ is issued to all
