'If you want to choose the pleasure of growth, prepare yourself for some pain' - Yalom
Processing in a group has unique advantages. It teaches us a lot about ourselves and relationships. All these groups are facilitated by a trained, qualified and certified experienced psychotherapist who can hold space and facilitate the group.
Each group is a unique blend of therapy, coaching, training and interaction with others. We have often learned from our earliest groups what being in a group means to us. We may not feel emotionally safe so sharing is challenging or daunting or have unhelpful or helpful beliefs about groups formed from our experiences.
Studies show that community, groups, humans drawing together for support have a profound effect on individuals which form them. This creates inter-dependency and trust can be built and formed in time. Relational habits which do not serve us come to the fore and we learn resillence to the belief there is something wrong with us. Our fragile egos can recover and become more robust, survive and thrive. This process must be learned or experienced in a group or relationship (two people is still a 'group'.)
We are built to be inter-dependent, not dependent or co-dependent (a generational relational pattern of dysfuction where we are reliant on betraying ourselves and focusing on others!) Co-dependency often runs in families or groups and is part of the family or group system. Learning to unlearn these patterns is cruicial to recovery. Recovery takes time and Practice, Practice, Practice. We were wounded in relationships, we heal in relationships.
Each group is a unique blend of Therapy I Coaching I Training I Experience
If group work is something you would like to consider please email me firstname.lastname@example.org or fill in the blue form on this page (please quote 'Group Work' + which group / community you are interested in).

Each group runs at same time day / evening each week for 2 hours.There is an prepaid monthly fee (TBA) to join and you are encouraged to attend each week to get the most from your investment in and commitment to yourself.

Any suggestion for a group also welcome - please contact me.
Please note these groups are not 1:1 therapy or coaching so the experience is different. If you need 1:1 therapy, please consider this instead of a group which can prepare you for the group experience. Some of us carry relational trauma and need to find safety in the 1:1 relationship first. Please do not judge yourself on whether you need 1:1 or group work or how 'ready' you are. We are all different with different needs and that is more than ok - ok?
