Rufus May tries talking talking respectfully to our demons

A woman I know hears voices.  She approached me for help because she was finding one of them very distressing. Angry and aggressive, it claimed to be a demon.  We decided to use the Talking with Voices approach described Dirk Corstens and colleagues. This involves a supporter having a conversation with the voice or voices, mediated by the voice hearer. The aim is to support people to begin to dialogue themselves with the voices and to build a better relationship with them.
