What can you expect from attending the group:

  • Commonality – our group helps to raise self-esteem by removing your sense of isolation.
    Encouragement- seeing that others have been in situations where you find yourself right now can offer hope at difficult times.
  • Development of new social skills – experimenting with the way in which you interact with others in a safe, supportive environment will help you build confidence and expand your relational range outside of the therapy sessions.
  • Understanding projection – the Group will help you make sense of what goes on for other people when they’re around you by allowing space for honest feedback.
  • Inter-connectedness – Humans are cooperative by nature. Being a part of a cohesive group offers a sense of belonging, acceptance and validation. Working through issues in a group setting is inspiring and life-enhancing.
  • Immediacy– Sharing one another’s experience helps us learn about our freedom to make choices and to take responsibility for our actions
  • Playfulness – There is a seriousness in ‘therapy work’ that is solemn and somber and then there is the seriousness of children’s play. We will aim for the second alternative.
  • Interpersonal learning – Interacting with others, giving and receiving feedback will help you realise greater self-awareness. Understanding how we are in the world is often the first step to change.
  • Empathy – you might be able to offer help or advice to other members. This sense of altruism can help you develop your own interpersonal skills.
