This paper follows my experience of developing an emancipatory research project with members of a Hearing Voices Group (HVG) while working simultaneously as both a group facilitator and a researcher. I hope to highlight both the potential of this type of researching as well as some of the tensions and dilemmas. Working with group members whose voices had often been subjugated meant that this power imbalance and ways of addressing it were integral to the research project. Informed by critical psychological and social constructionist perspectives I wanted to undertake a project which would directly benefit the individual participants as well as provide a wider social relevance. I will argue that both the theoretical and methodological perspectives the researcher draws on in order to do this will have a profound impact on the emancipatory potential of the research for both the researcher and researched, especially by determining what stories it is possible to tell. I would like to reflect on the experience of undertaking this research drawing on an interview in which I used the Biographical Narrative Interpretive Method to highlight its potential and limitations for facilitating this type of research.
