    If you hear voices this might help.

    Hi, this technique might be helpful for people who hear voices in general:

    If one tends to speak to themselves in their heads, it might be helpful to pick a tone of voice one feels comfortable speaking to themselves in and sticking with it, from deep to high pitched. It can be your own voice, someone you know, a cartoon character or anything you might feel comfortable with.

    I have found that technique helps me because I tended to hear voices that sounded like it came from many different people, so this has helped me deal with it and now it doesn't bother me as much. It's also good to remember though that it helps to limit the internal chatter. Happy holidays.
