Presenter Bio

Cheryl Rayl is a licensed Professional Counselor with over 25 years of experience working with people who hear voices. She helped facilitate the first Schizophrenia Anonymous groups launched by NAMI in Jacksonville, FL in the late nineties. Although Cheryl has always had an academic interest and a heart for people experiencing hearing voices, her interest became personal and her heart became passionate in 2003 when her son joined the ranks of those dealing with this issue. The combination of her professional years of working with people affected by this issue and her personal struggles in dealing with someone she loves make her a dynamic and genuine facilitator of this fascinating and highly impactful workshop. Anyone who has clients (or loved ones) struggling with hearing voices should attend.
