Eleanor Longden      

Award-winning Psychology Post-graduate; Mental Health Advocate & Speaker

Despite what traditional medicine may opine, Eleanor Longden isn’t crazy -- and neither are many other people who hear voices in their heads.

In fact, the psychic phenomenon is a “creative and ingenious survival strategy” that should be seen “not as an abstract symptom of illness to be endured, but as complex, significant, and meaningful experience to be explored,” the British psychology researcher says.

Longden spent many years in the psychiatric system before earning a BSc and an MSc in psychology, the highest classifications ever granted by the University of Leeds, England. Today she is studying for her PhD, and lectures and writes about recovery-oriented approaches to psychosis, dissociation and complex trauma.

As an award-winning psychology postgraduate and experienced keynote speaker Eleanor Longden is guaranteed to entice audiences. Her extensive knowledge on mental health issues can help others learn how to successfully recover from mental health issues and grow from the experiences. Her 2013 TED talk “The Voices in my Head” was also named as one of the ‘20 Online Talks That Could Change Your Life’ by the Guardian Newspaper.
