Psychotherapy Groups Introduction

Groups are a way to share issues and concerns with others in similar situations. People gain insight not only from interventions from the therapist but also in interacting with each other. Participants can learn coping strategies from other suffering similar conditions and receive feedback that can promote growth and change. 

In a group, participants can discover the ways in which each other deal with their condition and can often quickly apply to there own life a see great benefits.

The idea of a group can seem daunting. The thought of sharing with strangers problems that may have been effecting them for years can put people off. However, it is my experience that people adapt quickly to group work and within a couple of weeks are participating fully. My groups are always small (4 - 12 people). It is important to remember that groups are managed by me and that our shared aim is to support each other. This makes group a very safe place that most people can comfortably make their own space. Because more people are involved, the cost of attending a group is very much less than individual therapy.  

Groups are an important part of my work and my experience has shown me that this is a powerful approach and often you can see amazing results. I currently run a number of regular groups that focus on specific issues.  If you are looking for a group that is not mentioned here please contact us and we will try to help.
