This paper presents a series of cases to explore the development and value of a form of relating therapy for people who hear voices. The therapy is theoretically underpinned by Birtchnell's Relating Theory and offers a therapeutic space where hearers can explore and seek to change the relationship with their predominant voice. Five cases are presented to illustrate the processes of: (1) exploring similarities between relating to the voice and relating socially; (2) enhancing awareness of reciprocity with the voice-hearer relationship; and (3) using assertiveness training and empty chair work to facilitate change. Results were encouraging as change in control and/or distress was apparent for four of the cases. Changes in patterns of relating to voices were also apparent.
