The Doctor Who Hears Voices

Leave a comment

Dr. Rufus May has used his professional knowledge and own experiences of psychosis to focus on developing services that are more patient centred and therapeutic approaches that are more collaborative. He draws upon the nonviolent communication style developed by Marshall Rosenberg and mindfulness. His approach received considerable publicity when it was the subject of The Doctor Who Hears Voices, a 2008 British TV documentary about a junior doctor helped by May to overcome her experiences of hearing voices. Directed by Leo Regan, the documentary depicts the therapy which May provided to the junior doctor, played by actress Ruth Wilson.
